A real taste of Puglia from antipasti to dessert. Wine list could be improved! My favorite was handmade Pappardelle with wild seasonal mushrooms

We were taken to this amazing restaurant by local friends during a short stay in Ceglie Messapica December. The Antipasti was a journey through the wonderful local produce Puglia is famous for and was almost a meal in itself. We had probably the best wine we have ever tasted - Primitivo di Manduria Attanasio 2012, at 16.5% this is not... More

We found this place in a cold and snowy day in December. They hosted us in a very friendly manner and explained how the km0 approach is the key of thesis success. Everything is from their own property of from the region they are in.... Traditional food, unforgettable olives, great wine.... they really made our day!

We had an antipasto, a pasta and a main course between us and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. We had been some years ago and we were not disappointed this time either!

I don't think we would have visited had it not been for some local insider information. Having a local with us helped enrich this experience in many ways...so much so that we visited 2 nights running. Owner and staff only too happy to make changes to the menu to accommodate us, providing great service and hospitality. The experience was memorable... More

I read the reviews and was expecting a high quality meal with excellent service . The anti pasti was modern, tasty and very nice. Unfortunately the rest of the experience was not. We hadn't booked - we were asked by four members of staff if we had booked a table each one disappearing and not returning before the next asked.... More

Had dinner here on our last night in Puglia :( and it didn't disappoint! The entrance to the restaurant was very picturesque; down a narrow alley & we were given a lovely table at the front. The service was friendly and efficient. Anti Pasti was excellent with lots of vegetables, stuffed Zucchini flower a big hit. The meat was cooked... More

Hidden in the backstreets of Ceglie, this restaurant / Osteria is primarily in a courtyard. It is quaint and romantic, and the for is excellent. Full of locals, and a few knowing tourists. Excellent cuisine. A must go if you're in the area
