We had lunch here on a day still remarkably hot and sunny for October, thankful for the canopy outside the restaurant. Beautifully presented and delicious food - the anchovies with marmalade stood out. Service excellent and the Miles Davis backing music much appreciated.

We came here on the recommendations of Trip Advisor. It is up there as one of the memorable meals on our 2 month holiday through Europe. The food was traditional but inventive. I liked the conviction of their menu by stating up front that they would not change anything or make substitutions. Good for them! I had the raw fish... More

In the touristic Centre of Otranto. Found it in the guide Michelin. Very unusual as very crossover / fusion cuisine - ambitious, lacking a bit of Raffinesse here and there but bottomline : almost there. Good wine menu, nice decor, sure they will get there. Go !

We had a delicious lunch at L'altro Baffo last week on our final day in Italy. We enjoyed the crudo to start, followed by salt-roasted sea bream and finally a cheese plate. We washed it all down with a local rose. The bill came to about $120 USD. The crudo was beautifully plated, fresh, and sweet. We particularly enjoyed the... More

Small but perfectly formed fine dining restaurant close to the castle in Otranto Fantastic food, excellent staff (especially the Maitre D), small but decent and reasonably priced wine list Cannot recommend this place enough The panna cotta and mojito sorbet (not together) were to die for!

Poor service: no answer when requesting a table by email. After calling and making a reservation by phone, there was no reservation when arriving at the restaurant. Nevertheless we got a table, but it took a long time to order, no olive oil or whatsoever with dry bread, but cover was very expensive with 6 Euros. Only a good recommendation... More

We were recommended to try this place, not to be confused with the similarly named Baffo. We sat outside and had a decent, but not outstanding lunch, which we felt was perhaps overly sophisticated and slightly mean on portion size, given the wonderful local ingredients that were used - a minor quibble. Service was efficient but anonymous. Probably better for... More

local fresh products, creative cooking, nice staff, excellent wine. Their "sea urchin carbonara" is a must.

We'd seen this ristorante highly recommended on TA, so gave it a try whilst staying in Otranto for a month, and weren't disappointed - it was very good. The ristorantes in Otranto focus on fish dishes - it is a coastal town after all - and this one was no different. My wife had the mussels in pecorino and breadcrumbs... More
