Visit this place, cuz the meals are simple but very tasty! It is very affordable family restaurant (which is equal to a "very good) with bbq menu. Always full of people although the interior isn't luxury. But it was the best meat i tried in Puglia. And homemade wine was also very tasty.

This is the place must go and eat their Bombetta. Their BBQ is fantastico... The juice from meat burst inside your mouth when you bite! It will melt your heart. Never forget the salad to balance with the meat. Never leave Alberobello without visit them.

We had this recommended to us by a local and we were not disappointed. In fact we returned for a second visit.

The Value was the best in Alberobello and we tried various restaurants... More

No spagetti or pizza, but really fresh and just cookes meat. Very delicous! Friendly atmosphere and good location. The red wine is also a good choice.

İf you come to Alberobello you must dry local restaurant. First of all you choose what want to eat, very kind of meat, after that they are cooking and serve you. This area is butcher and cooking. A few tables are inside but clean and cheap. You can take bear or other drinking things. I enjoy it...

It was our 2nd time after 4 years. Grilled meat - you can choose from variety of meats - steaks, rolls and so on, from fridge. We had some mix of it and liked everything. Price is per kilo (everything (or most) is 20€/kg). So we ate really cheap. Side dishes - potatoes, salad is good also (only portion of... More
