I would recommend this restaurant to anybody. Great food, great service. we were a group of 16 mostly from Penn. We toured Puglia coast for 12 days. We all agreed on the quality of food and service.

The food is great, the hospitality is warm and the ambience is real Italian. The view is impressive and the people have passion for service. It's a place to re-visit.

The location is touristy, but don’t let that stop you. Everything we had was well prepared, the staff were helpful, and the wine (if you haven’t tried Fiano, it may make you rethink Italian whites) was delightful.

Great location right on Piazza Mercantile. Great food and wine. Not very expensive and very very good. I highly recommend the Orecchiette

This restaurant is in a busy square with lots of other paces to eat, drink and wander. It is set off from the square by a divider, which makes it more intimate but we found it very hot at times with no breeze coming through....More
