I've been to this restaurant a few times now...the challenge is always to get a table as it is very busy in the summer months (which includes September, much to my surprise, as I thought it gets less busy once August is over). We usually share a few primi (always have the anchovies and sea urchins) and the have pasta.... More

This restaurant will spoil you for all the others if you are looking for great authentic seafood with no fuss service. We had this place recommendeded by our airbnb host. We arrived with no reservation to a mostly empty restaurant and it seemed that we were not gonna get a table. This came as a surprise because there were so... More

We went to this place with high expectations as it was recommended by locals. Unfortunately, the food and service didn't match our expectations. Food was bland. For instance, the sea food risotto lacked the depth of a good fish broth. The grilled fish wasn't good either. The scales weren't removed which made the skin unedible, and again, it lacked seasoning.... More

Appetizers consist of very fresh and excellently prepared seafood. Pasta and main dishes are of similar standard. Portions are generous and the staff is very friendly. In total: highly recommendable

We had booked a table at 10 pm but we had to wait around 30 minutes for not even table. Staff were walking around without to know what they doing so I went to ask how much longer do we need to wait but after one of the staff screaming at me we preferred to leave. There are many nice... More

Le Fontanelle serves seafood. That's really it. Seafood, seafood, and more see food and they do a kick @$$ job of it. It's the best bang for your buck in Gallipoli for seafood. I have been going their for 2 years. You need a reservation during the summer months for sure. Do not be surprised if you have to wait... More

We got to know this restaurant during our trip to Lecce, one local guy has given us the suggestion when he heard that we would like to try crude seafood. It is not so easy to find, it is in a corner near railway station (actually the first night we did not find it until late that night we found... More
