This is a beachfront restaurant by the marina in Vieste. We ate lunch here on Monday, and liked it so much we returned for dinner on Wednesday. Since we had met the head chef Leonardo, he was happy to see us return. He showed us the seabream and tuna that had just been dropped off by their fisherman. We started... More

Beautiful spot on jetty at Vieste marina. Staff helpful but not overly attentive. Many ways to spend big including Krug champagne and meal for 2 at E250! We had beautifully cooked freshly caught local seafood incl tuna tartare, cod and sea bass. Great wine list too. Really enjoyed it.

I had read excellent reviews of this place and we were not disappointed! My wife and 2 kids had an excellent evening watching the sunset over the Vieste harbour and enjoying a great lobster! Good service, attentive, ready at the first sign and overall a place to remember!

Doesn't happen very often to be treated with such excellent food, in the rather picturesque atmosphere of Vieste harbour. The chef Leonardo clearly has a passion for his fish and his dishes are the obvious consequence: elegant, imaginative, creative and yet simple: delicious. We started with a plateau of raw shellfish which was just sublime. Tried the fresh ravioli with... More

I came from Toronto and this restaurant was highly recommended to me. I ordered a maxi pizza for me and my boyfriend and it was amazing. Seeing as I barely speak Italian they really made me feel welcomed. I will keep going there because the price is cheap and food is soooo gooooood. The owner is very friendly and I... More

From the time we walked through the door until we left we were welcomed and looked after so well. We had an aperitif while we were making our choice of meal. My husband and friend chose fish as a mail course and I had Lamb. The catch of the day was brought out and they chose to share a rather... More

This is by the marina and serves excellent food freshly crooked to a high standard. The service was excellent and the wine list incredible and wide ranging. Some of the best food I have eaten this year. Book to be sure of a table. Caters for the boating visitors

The staff could not be more supportive or attentive, though it has to be noted it was not busy, but all the same we were treated really well. The food was excellent though we were let down a little by the cool chill of the evening but my wife was wrapped in a fleece blanket as soon as it was... More

The Apericena is a Great alternative option to a sit down dinner. You can choose from a variety of local delicacies mix (like an Italian version of a tapas) at €10 for each combination of 4-6 tasters + cocktails at€6 each. If you fancy a mix of local seafood and local produces + also a pasta taster, you are in... More
