Tucked away on a back street this small restaurant is one of the best for fresh local food cooked using family cherished recipes. The service is excellent, happy to flex a dish, menu, make recommendations to suit every palet.
I often simply leave the food and wine to the chef/owner and have never left disappointed. Great value, my favourite in San Vito.

We went there as a farewell meal after a lovely holiday with our daughter & family. The restaurant had one member who spoke good English which enabled us to explain that one of our party must not come into contact with dairy or egg containing foods, but she really loves food!

They were so attentive and brought us out a lovely array of dishes, many made with ingredients they had grown and without exception were most careful that our member with allergies totally trusted that there were no allergens in the food placed before her.

It was a lovely, fun, relaxed evening enjoyed by us all. It is only small, so be sure to book, and you will enjoy the food they bring to you and they will ensure you are well looked after.

We tried to eat here on our first night but the restaurant was full and we now know why!
We booked and have enjoyed a wonderful evening of well cooked simple local dishes. There was no fuss about ordering and Antonio explained what fresh dishes they had and we started off with little 'tapas' plates that arrived in a steady flow from the kitchen, all fresh and appetising. Fried aubergine, little meat balls, mixed vegetables, fried new potatoes, courgettes with garlic were all delicious.
We then shared a plate of mixed vegetables all hot and an interesting collection well flavoured.
For our main course we each had a steak with a red wine sauce which was cooked perfectly. The wine list is small but perfectly formed and we had an organic white from Castel del monte which was excellent.
The pudding was tiramisu home made and again the flavours well balanced and superbly creamy.
Antonio then brought a small plate of biscotti along with a little, at our request, glass of home made limoncello. A perfect end to a great meal.
Enjoy a well cooked and served meal here of local dishes in season in a great atmosphere with pleasant staff. Thank you.

Don't read the bad reviews!
Awesome place and food. Every plate they serve is 100% typical from Puglia, made with the best organic ingredients. So food is amazing, the relation price/quality/quantity is fare and the staff is really friendly. ( They speak English)
