I had lunch in this restaurant at the end of last summer with my husband. This is exactly what we needed to appreciate Apulia at best. A wonderful location, in the heart of Peschici, overlooking the blue Adriatic sea serving high-quality and fresh regional dishes. The surroundings are astonishing, you can go for a walk in the narrow streets around... More

Domenico Cilenti is a talented chef with a passion for his region and this is reflected in the use of the spices, herbs and flavours chosen for his cuisine.

Quiet by mid September, but lovely with a view to the sea. No fish, alas, which was half the menu - but everything else more than made up for it. The most wonderful beef, great service and a lovely wine recommendation. Definitely go there for dinner, it's fab.

Food throughout Italy is generally excellent and very regional, this restaurant surpasses the usual standard with the chef, Domenico, passionately illustrating the food of southern Italy. The dishes were all prepared immaculately and full of flavours of the south (we had the fish menu), whilst the dishes are larger than expected on a tasting menu, they were presented in a... More

Wonderful food and service with spectacular views. This is no ordinary restaurant. A Michelin recommended restaurant right in the old town.

I was already aware that this restaurant was one of the best restaurant of the area. So my girlfriend and I we decided to book a table around sunset time. The view is indescribable. With the Adriatic Sea in front of us and if you are lucky you can even see the Tremiti Islands. We decided to have a fish... More

The service was very good. The view was also fantastic however the food doesn't fit its price. Was expecting more from the food considering its price

All personal in the restaurant was very nice and friendly. We got tuna as starter, fantastic black dumplings in a fish bullion and turbot in black tempura... More

My wife and I had lunch here on June 8. We sat on a terrace overlooking the sea 100m below on a beautiful sunny day. The location with sheer cliffs, seagulls flying around and below us, with the blue Mediterranean spread out in front of us was as good as anywhere I gave been in the world. We chose the... More

We walked by this restaurant while walking around the old town. The staff was outside talking at 5pm and we returned about 8. We sat in an alcove which looked like we were hanging over the cliff! Great views of the sunset over the Adriatic. We started with great bread and wine, pasta and a desert. Good value and excellent... More
