This venue was chosen by my friends. Absolutely no problem with that, as you enter the place, one immediately senses a good feeling. The staff are welcoming and friendly and attentive. And due to the weather being able to eat al fresco, is a huge plus for me. Even with it getting dark, appropriate lighting helps make the occasion a... More

In the high season, book ahead-- and see if you can sit outdoors if the evening is nice. Their starters and mains were excellent, and a high point are the fried bread balls that they give you (can't remember the name). Our waiter also spoke English, and there was a great range of pasta, seafood and appetizers. Would definitely return!

The restaurant is charming with a gorgeous outside dining area. The menu catered for fish and meat lovers and each course was celicious. The waiters were attentive which added to the experience. Very reasonably priced too. We travelled extensively throughout Puglia and felt this was by far one of the best. Thoroughly recommend.

We were at dinner two couples and the grand mother.We are used to cook mediterranean dishes as we are Napolitain and we do love south taste, however we stay always on a diet and we had "only" one entree and one main dish (each!). The fish entree dish was honest (they told us the fish was not fresh but surgelated)... More

Outstanding food from the chef, brilliant menu, great service from Giuseppe - it was by far one of the best meals I've had in Italy. We went for brunch on Sunday and it was awesome. I'm sure all other meals there are just as great. I really look forward to returning one day.

We were recommended this restaurant at the end of our holiday unfortunately; the food was delicious, service very attentive although not obtrusive, each course was explained to us & advice was given with our selection of food & wine. Only regret was that we could not return

What a nice gem to find! My wife and I drove to Il castello di Momo after a strong recommendation from a great chef in Naples. And it was spot on: The food, wine (á la casa!) and Giuseppe as the perfect host, brought the whole evening together. Grazie mille!

Early in September we spent a very memorable evening celebrating various occasions with family and friends from all corners of the world. Everything was perfect - the setting, the food, the music and the very professional, friendly staff. We couldn't have asked for more. We will definitely be returning..... very soon.

"Il Castello di Momo" is a tipical restaurant in the heart of Salento, an amazing experience to enjoy.
Our restaurant is located in Capece family's baronial court (1400) where you can breathe the magic atmosphere of history.
Our food is a mix of genuine apulian tastes and original flavours from around the globe. We are a family crew: Peppe is the manager and his father Franco is the chef. We've always had a passion for cooking because we think it means innovation and creativity.
Our costumers is a second family and we like to delight them with our specialties and our welcoming manners.
"Il Castello di Momo"is a place suspended in time: you just sit down, enjoy the colours and flavours of our dishes, drink a good glass of wine and dedicated to yourself a few hours of relax.
