We enjoyed a delightful lunch at this lovely restaurant overlooking the Adriatic. Service was excellent. Décor was attractive and inviting. I had the ravioli with pesto, which was excellent. We also enjoyed a really good shrimp salad.

Myself and my partner dined in this restaurant twice during our 7 night stay in Polignano Di Mare. The food was delicious, the service was amazing and the view was incredible. They even give you a welcome presecco on arrival. Grazie!
