Our tour group stopped here for lunch. While the majority of their offerings are seafood, there were some in our group that cannot eat seafood. The restaurant did a nice job of offering steaks and/or veggie platters to those not eating seafood. The food was skillfully prepared and tasty.

We had a simple lunch. The food was fine. Plenty of vegetables and very good service. The seafood was lackluster though fresh. It is right on the harbor in Trani and made for a pleasant afternoon.

The night I came was busy for Trani. Some restaurants were full up. Darsena is well-situated, overlooking the port and is very nice inside. Strange then that the place was empty when I arrived and empty when I left! The young inexperienced waitress did well but the owners took no interest in me, preferring to chat to one another and...

We had a delicious meal as part of our Globas Tour in this lovely restaurant. Groovy pink glassware and pink flowers against the whitewashed walls added to the stunning setting! The service was friendly, and the seafood very well presented and tasty- overall a fabulous lunch- would definitely come back!

Our last lunch in Italy was here and it was very good. The restaurant is in a great position and they serve an extensive menu of very fresh local seafood. Apart from one blip in the service it was a memorable visit.

Had grilled prawns, and a pasta primo also with prawns. Probably too many prawns, but they were very good. Pasta a bit too al dente for my taste, but that's probably personal preference. A peasant mussel and clam primo was excellent. Service friendly and helpful, some English spoken, but be prepared to be flexible if you aren't understood. Whatever shows... More

Located in a port-side Palazzo in a vaulted room with an incredibly high ceiling, walls lined with old photographs of Trani and linen covered tables and linen serviettes, this is a stylish restaurant offering food of unexpected quality, impeccably served. Our lunchtime menu was characterized by dishes of an exceptional freshness and taste: the prawns that came with the primo... More
