The Locanda dei Benedettini is located inside the San Vito Abbey, in front of the characteristic port. Mostly the Benedictine cuisine is based on the sea with reinterpretations of the Apulian culinary culture. In the evening the Benedictines offer their excellent Pugliese pizza. Before lunch or dinner you can sip a glass of wine, beer or aperitif in front of the enchanting timeless panorama that offers the site of San Vito. Finally choosing in the selection of products to the Benedictine brand you can take away with you a memory of this fairytale place ... we are waiting for you...
