This is the most amazing restaurant in Italy. A Michelin Starred Restaurant serving fabulous food at really affordable prices. Five people ate Sunday Lunch for only €130 last Sunday! And we were walk-ins. We asked the local tourist office in Ostuni which was the best restaurant (it was our last day and we wanted a blow-out meal) and they said... More

The proprietor of our small apartment recommended this restaurant which is owned by his son-in-law. We were wary but as we were strangers to this town decided to give it a try. It was terrific: the waiter immediately understood that we two women would like to share some dishes, his recommended dishes and wine were perfect and the price was... More

Our guide recommended and this place didn't disappoint! Menu was reasonable, ambiance delightful! We shared the calamari and a pasta. Both were delicious. Staff was attentive

We had a different restaurant in mind when in Ostuni, but our hotel receptionist convinced us to try the 'Osteria del Tempo Perso'. First we had to wait outside because our table wasn't ready and we were almost ready to give up when we finally hosted inside. One look at the interior and menu and all was forgiven. A gorgeous...

Ate here with the family last week in the 'cave' room. Service as good and the food and wine were fantastic. I had mushrooms with truffle on toast for starter and the entrecôte for main which was sublime. Also tried my brothers lamb chops which had fantastic flavour. The only slightly disappointing thing for us were the deserts which pretty... More

We had an amazing meal for 9 people in this very special restaurant-we are in one of the former caves/stores which created a unique experience. Excellent food, service and highly appreciated their navigation through the wine choice.

A very enjoyable evening of nice food and service in the delightful environment of an historic cave. Really worth trying. Some prices can be high but overall good food and wine. Service was generally attentive but if booking do try for the cave rather than the other room which is a traditional resturant. We certainly would return also if you... More

We visit Ostuni often and always save this restaurant for the special occasion dinner but this being the 3rd visit in a little over a year we noticed a disappointing difference. Now the atmosphere is the best you can experience because it is so unique but this time the food had some ups and down and we felt the service... More
