Really nicely prepared food, in lovely surroundings and great friendly service, not the cheapest but well worth it. As other reviewers have said the menu is a little different to the standard local offerings.

For our last night in Vieste, we decided to go to this place based on previous reviews. However, we ended up disappointed... Food is tasty, yes, a very good octopus carpaccio and a lovely tuna, but service is cold and impersonal. In the end, it turned up being quite pricy for the total experience... definitely room for improvement on several... More

The food was quite okay, although for the price we paid we expected it to be better. Some dishes were cooked perfectly, others were clearly not living up to the expectations. The service was not very smiley and could have made an extra effort.

Having read the reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to book this restaurant for our last night in Vieste. This is an interesting old building on the edge of the cliff. The welcome was warm and we were seated and offered the menu, we decided and our orders taken - this was all done with a smile. I had had enough... More

As all the restaurants in the centro storico, also this one is 'dining under the arches'. Finally a restaurant with a slightly different menu. We really enjoyed the food and the dishes were very nicely done. Value for money!

We had an excellent dinner of both fish and meat plus an almond parfait to die for. Good value for money, well cooked food and a nice bottle of wine. The staff were friendly and efficient.

Very descent seafood with non seafood items as well. Good wine list to suit all budgets. Expect to pay 30€ pp with bottled wine and water. The also allow dogs although there is no seating outside if your pet is not settled enough.

We tried several restaurants in Vieste, some of them better ranked in Trip Advisor but this one is the tpp one. Excellent quality of the food, excellent service (this restaurant is not trying to get as many tables as they can), excellent wine (try white wine with Bombino and Chardonnay or red Fekir), reasonable prices. Everything top, tpp Be careful... More

Encouraged by the good assessments, we tried to call this place for two days to make a reservation. The phone line was always dead. The reservation system on the homepage did not work and I even sent them an e-mail which remained unanswered. The third day, we went there personally to ask for a table. The explanation for the dead... More

If you're in Vieste you really need to eat here. We tried to get in on a Sunday night but the place was fully booked. Now I know why... The menu is very much focused on seafood and regional interpretations. The antipasti section was so inviting that we couldn't make up our minds, so they did us a massive mixed... More
