Was nearby for business and my colleagues took us to this fabulous place. No menu, just sit and wait for wave after wave of fabulous food come to your table. Culminated by the main course- preselected by the table prior to cooking. Another must when in the area.

Good variety of starters and seafood. Soft atmosphere and kind personnel. Prices are fair, if you consider how valuable the offer is.

The restaurant is centrally located in Barletta. Their seafood antipasto is dish after dish of seafood dishes to share between the whole table. We had in total about 15 different dishes. After all this, you can either stop or order a primo or a main. We were full but still decided for a fish main course since we thought that... More

Tasting menu seemed to be their preferred offering and in the end we wished there were no more courses! Food was very well presented and staff were very helpful - even with the language barrier . Very good value for the quality and quantity !

Very insisting waiter on selling you as most food as possible. 1 hour and ten minutes waiting for a dish of rice...with no apologies or explanations.. Most shocking is 3 Euro subcharge (coperto) per person! Not even in Milano city centre they charge so much... Food quality good

this restaurant was recommended to me by another restaurant owner here in Barletta. I tried it, and am very happy that I did. I let the owners decide for me what I was going to eat, and every single plate that they brought out was outstanding. Not only that, but I had a total of 11 small sized plates of... More

After a two hour drive and much anticipation, I was completely let down by my experience in this highly rated restaurant. First, the staff was not prepared for service when our party arrived at the precise time of our reservation. Second, there was no menu to guide us, so we had to rely on the word of the server as...

The food is great, the waiters very helpful. After trying most of the best rated restaurants on tripadvisor, this one is the best one. The food is excellent, very sophisticated prepared. For such a type of food, the prices are very correct.
