We opted for the set menu which was an excellent choice as it had a great selection of local dishes which we all enjoyed. The house red was AMAZING. Kindly service along with some visits from the colourful chef.

The food here was absolutely terrible... It was bland and boring... I can make better food out of a microwave... and I also ordered the chocolate soufle it was burnt to a crisp and inedible... and drenched in disgusting sauce... It was one of the worst meals i've ever eaten.

It's a place located in the Trulli's area, the restaurant is quite nice and cosy, the chef itself was passing around how was everything. Very respectful service and great ambience. The food was amazing and the service just excellent.

Three years ago I went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the staff @ Borgo Egnazia. It was as amazing for our second visit as it was the first time. I ordered the nine plate (!) appetizer and my daughter asked for the pasta and beans. Talk about Italian Soul Food!!!! We met the chef and my daughter burst... More

The only place we could find open after 3 p.m., available for us to eat lunch. The service was great, the food was interesting (considering my choise of something local) and the wine was tasty.

We ate here twice on our visit to Alberobello one year ago, and delighted to eat here again on our first night back to this wonderful small town. Great food, great wine, delightful staff, including the chef and owner, who love to visit with his customers. While in the tourist center, this is a chef with great respect for food... More

The food was very good, the people working there were friendly so we had a great time :) It was one of the few places open in December so we were lucky to walk into this one.

I was touring Puglia with fellow photographers and stopped for lunch at this restaurant in the heart of Alberobello. We were warmly welcomed by the owner. I was suggested to try the local lamb chops and wild chicory accompanied with few glasses of Primitivo wine. A match made in heaven!! I loved this place and I would happily return next... More
