Great location in a small street with lovely atmosphere. Although the prices are a bit above average, this more than compensated by the tasty food and spot-on service. Had one of our best dinners here during our two weeks in Puglia!

Puglia is not short of great places to eat and this place in Cisternino is one of the best. We had perfect pasta and a chilled glass of Fiano...it couldn’t have been better, except perhaps if we had laid off the bread before the food...More

Description
Il centro storico di Cisternino è un Capolavoro architettonico, di rilevante interesse storico e culturale, e di origine medioevale. Ed è in questo clima così fitto di realtà fantastiche e di luoghi suggestivi che è possibile trovare la perfetta armonia di sapori, con l'Osteria Bell'Italia, dove la tradizione dei prodotti tipici locali si sposa con l'eleganza della cucina raffinata. Una cucina Italiana rivisitata, tendente al creativo. L'ambiente è unico, elegante, romantico e raffinato, dove servizio e professionalità sono le caratteristiche che da sempre lo hanno contraddistinto. Un ambiente suggestivo per la sua posizione, ed affascinante per la sua struttura e il suo design, semplice e moderno, rilassante, curato ed accogliente. Le materie prime utilizzate sono tra le migliori, ed ogni piatto è preparato con semplicità e con l'utilizzo di fragranti aromi mediterranei. I sapori della sua cucina nascono dall'abbinamento, mai esasperato ma semplicemente esaltato, di prodotti tipici locali con prodotti ricercati. L'Osteria Bell'Italia nasce per diventare il punto di riferimento per gli "amanti della Dolce Vita". Il suo menù è ricco e variegato, con una vasta offerta di antipasti. Piatti eseguiti con attenzione; dai risotti alle paste fresche, dal pesce alle carni di prima scelta, accompagnati da eccellenti contorni. Tra le specialità caserecce della casa vanno menzionate le orecchiette al ragù di asina con braciole e la parmigiana di melanzane con mozzarella di bufala. Tra i piatti rivisitati sono ottimi il tortello di melanzane con provola affumicata su letto di pomodoro fresco, le linguine di gragnano "sea food", e l'agnello brasato al forno, servito su un letto di purea di fave e carciofi. Ottima anche la selezione di salumi e formaggi. Il suo punto di forza sono i Piatti Unici, come la delicatissima Tartare di Tonno fresco, o la gustosissima Insalata tiepida di gamberi, noci, mele e avocado. Da non tralasciare i dolci, come il Chocolat Soufflè alla moda dello Chef, servito con frutti di bosco, o l'innovativo Tiramisù rivisitato, in versione fresh (fatto al momento). Dispone, inoltre, di un eccellente Cantina Vini, con selezione molto curata delle etichette, da quelle locali e regionali, a quelle Italiane e Internazionali (quindi dai piccoli produttori ai grandi nomi classici). Spicca, inoltre, una ricca selezione di grappe e distillati, e un'ampia scelta di Champagne e spumanti. L'ambiente dispone di due sale, eleganti ed essenziali, la cui lineare conformazione ha la disponibilità di 40 coperti nel periodo invernale, e di circa 60 nella "bella stagione", periodo in cui è possibile degustare prodotti unici tra le mura di un borgo antico meravigliosamente suggestivo. La filosofia dell'Osteria Bell'Italia è, dunque, quella di proporre piatti locali rivisti in chiave moderna, con un equilibrato connubio tra classico e creatività. E la sua particolarità è quella di cullare il cliente tra il piacere del gusto e dell'ospitalità tipica locale. Inoltre è anche luogo ideale per eventi, pranzi, cene e feste private (compleanni, lauree..), il tutto supportato da eventi musicali tenuti dal vivo e con relativa animazione. Osteria Bell'Italia...solo per i Palati n° 1 !!!
