This is always our first port of call on our yearly visit to Martina Franca. The welcome never fails to surprise us, as Stefano, his wife and staff remember from earlier years and there is always much exchanging of family news! The Osteria is set in a beautiful crescent of ancient buildings on the fringe of the Centro Storico. In... More

Great atmosphere. Stefano is a great character who speaks excellent English. Super anti pasti with good variety. Excellent 'special dishes of the day'. We loved the slow cooked veal. Incredibly tender. It really melted in the mouth. Very good value for money and excellent incredibly inexpensive house wine.

Stephano continues to provide really fine cooking with a degree of elegance and inventiveness. I'll admit I'm a fan, I keep returning and I'm never disappointed. The service is efficient and friendly and the wine selection is completely adequate and well priced. What more can be asked for? A destination restaurant in Martina.

It it time to reappraise Osteria del Coco Pazzo. And YES it is still serving great food, Stefano is one of the most innovative chefs in Martina Franca. The welcome is one of the best, tonight we sat inside and the service is the best, attentive but not over the top. The wine list is comprehensive with a very good... More

This time I had only seafood and it was delicious. I started with Stefano's famous Fava Puree which is the best I have had...it is a little piccante which I loved. This was followed with a glass (or was it 3:-) of verdeca, and seppioline al vapore (steamed squid-OMG!!!!!). Then tonnarelli pasta al sugo di polipo e seppie (tonarelli with... More

This osteria was near where we were staying. We simply walked in (mind you, this was early April & not yet tourist season). And oh my, what a phenomenal dinner we had! We were looking for simple and not much - we walked out with simple, but overflowing with terrific food. From the excellent appeltizers that 'just appear' to the... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant even though it was 40 minutes drive away and I can see why. They were incredibly friendly and the food was wonderful! Stefano visits every table multiple times and we ended up thinking of him as a friend as well as a host. We recommend not to order too much as the servings are generous... More

On the edge of the old town, the restaurant had a nice location in a little square, served good food with nice service - they were also child-friendly which always helps!
