What a spot! We had our last meal here, lunch at the end of 11 days in Puglia. World class pizza, and gnocchetti cooked with flair - simple stuff, but done brilliantly. And the view is amazing, looking over the beach, the cliffs and the old town. It's one of the best value meals I've eaten in Italy, period: pizza €8. The staff were friendly. There are a couple of reviews below that seem for a different place altogether. We ate in La Grotta (very average food!) and many great places in between: Il Cavo in its own way as good as any of them.

Sister in law did a poor job researching a place to eat. Ended up in the middle of a tourist trap in Polignano. Seasfood was frozen and not fresh and prices were twice what you would pay elsewhere in Adriatic coast in a good fish trattoria. €15 for a pizza here when you can get a pizza anywhere else for €6-7. Fried fish had head parts fried of seafood and not the body which is a big no-no and my Italian mother-in-law was shocked as this miatake for a restaurant charging twice the price. Most of the reviews here are from English, Scottish and Irish tourists who may value the food they get is better than anything you get at home but that is not a hard ask in most of Italy. The point I am making is if you want real value look further than this place as you will find price/quality much better even if you dont have the nice view.

Spent a day in this beautiful city and decided to have dinner in the Il Cavò. I booked the table few days before and when I arrived everyone was extremly nice. I asked for the special dishes from the region and finally I had the Orecchiete with ragu and seafood. My dessert was Panna Cotta. Wonderful restaurant with nice waiters and waitresses. Highly recommend!
