Had lunch here and we were delighted with the food and service. Good selection of breads and the raw carrot and melon was novel. We had pasta with tomato and mushrooms and sliced chicken breast with fried potatoes. Both were excellent. The only quibble was that the coffee was not very good. Would recommend this restaurant just off the historic... More

The food was superb but they tried to rip us off twice. Firstly by bringing an open bottle of corked wine instead of the one we ordered and then trying to charge us 20 euro's instead of the 14 euro's for the one we got. The service had also lots to desire. Waited ages to be served whist those around... More

The restaurant is tucked away just off the Piazza Maria Immacolata. It has outdoor seating around a couple of twisting streets and a modern double level interior section. The food was excellent, the menu totally in Italian which is great as it suggests less touristy. Large wine list with a variety of prices from about €14 upwards, we actually had... More

We ate here for lunch and had the best meal of our stay here. The dishes are all fresh made and an explosion of flavors. Their pasta with river lobsters is a hit Go and eat here when exploring the area, Marina Franca is a good stop, a nice historic old downtown and NOT overrun with tourists.

Nausikaa restaurant is a hidden treasure on a side street in Martina Franca. Great chef prepared the best pasta with scampi we eat in Puglia. Tagliata was not bad either. Wines OK. Good value for money, we recomend this restaurant!

As a family of six, and spending over an hour trying to find a space for a minibus. We were quite hungry. It was around 9.30 before we found this restaurant, after trying the Templari, but we were too late as they were very busy. The lovely lady owner recommended Nausikaa to us, so off we went with the help... More

Booked a table on Friday evening on the recommendation of another local business, looking forward to having a special meal to mark the end of a great week in Puglia. This was not to be. The beef carpaccio was served partly frozen, I pointed this out to the waiter who told me this was normal. I appreciate that it is... More

nausikaa is a treasure tucked away on a side street of the old town in Martina Franka. We dined on a hot August evening with tables set on the lamp-lit cobbled lane way. Our antipasti included some delicate local cheeses mozzarella and fresh creamy ricotta. Fish and seafood risotto were delightful as were the deconstructed cannoli and panna cotta desserts.
