I live in Oria and have visited this restaurant 6 times. The first time was with my son. We had a lovely meal outside and had good service. However the manager tipped over my sons glass of orange soda at the start of the meal and he was that wet that he went back to get changed. They knew what... More

This place is a must visit, if in Oria for 1 night! If you stay longer you will surely re-visit! Chef hits the taste notes in a way I've rarely tasted in Puglia. Not to say food in Puglia isn't good but it has a twist that I enjoy greatly. Sure the service you get might be a bit stiff,... More

I went there twice: first, to taste the local food and the second to have a pizza. The waiter was friendly and he recommended a sensational local wine which, along the food prepared out of burrata cheese, made the whole dinner a fantastic experience. Pizza was good too. I had an interesting combination of pistachio and grana cheese.

This was an amazing experience! We were treated to an evening here by a local friend. The antipast just kept coming... Calamari, octopus bruschetta, shellfish.......just amazing. Then a whole sea bass was presented to the table - it was huge - and this was whisked away then grilled to perfection and served filleted. Really stunning. Would love to visit again.

As a part time resident of Oria, I am continually amazed by the number of truly excellent restaurants in such close proximity. Over the last couple of years I have posted a variety of positive reviews of the great selection we have but Vecchia has emerged as my current favourite. Of course the food is very good, as most of... More

No other restaurant in this area has been able to keep me a satisfied customer as Vecchia Oria has. They just simply deliver, at all times! Must try: "Calamari al pan grattato" which is a lightly breaded calamari grilled to perfection, amazing! The service is "old school" no fuzz but always correct and proper with a smirk :). If in...

Without question the best meal we had in Puglia. Service was more 'staggered' than we'd have liked, but as there were 15 of us that was only to be expected. Pizzas were all good, the Carpaccios of Swordfish or Salmon or Tuna were beautiful, and our favourite mains of Filetto of beef in pistachio sauce, or the Gypsy Rolls of... More

We spend a lot of time in Oria as my parents own a property here.Whenever we spend a weekend here, we do not bother cooking but rather eat at Vecchia Oria. You just can't go wrong.

We have been twice now and have thoroughly enjoyed our meal on both occasions. It's not very often you get the whole thing: lovely surroundings, good service and good food but this is one restaurant that has. Would highly recommend to anyone.
