We wandered into the restaurant by chance, and it paid off. The service is only OK but most dishes are excellent (besides maybe the overdone chicken schnitzel). The salads are fresh, pasta as good as anywhere else, fish tasty, and the best tomato bruscatta we've ever had. Well recommended!

It was raining and we needed to find a place to eat. We stumbled upon l'antica. The food was okay. Better than most of the reviews. It was very reasonable. If you want an inexpensive meal than this is the place.

We had read the reviews for this restaurant and we're not planning to eat here over our 5 night stay in Ostuni but found ourselves needing a quick lunch in-between morning and afternoon TodoModo tours. Nothing appeared to be open on a Wednesday so we popped in to L'Antica Locanda. We found the couple of pasta dishes good, as was... More

Pleasant restaurant just off main piazza. Local dishes cooked fresh, with good local wines. Air conditioning huge plus in summer. Staff friendly and helpful.

We came here on our first night, we were starving. Pizza was ok not the best, but the price was very, very reasonable. Great place for a beer and a pizza on a budget

We had an acceptable meal here, but despite it being recommended by a local felt we could have done better. Pizza base was excellent, toppings only average.

We were recommended this restaurant by some local expats we met in a bar near the main piazza of Ostuni, and were very pleased they sent us here! We had a buffalo mozzarella caprese which was simple and divine, and steak with balsamic, lemon and olive oil which was really delicious. Great value for money. The pizzas also looked yummy... More

Arrogant owners, no concept of how to make visitors welcome, the Italians are served first and tourists last! Even though your there first.

I went into this restaurant after being refused service in the nearby Gatto Rosso. We both had Pizzas and although the restaurant was full everyone was working hard to keepnthe service flowing. The pizzas were excellent with that lovely stone baked base. Overall 2 Pizzas a half litre of local wine and a large Peroni cost €22 It was excellent... More

I do not understand a lot of these negative reviews. Maybe because I speak Italian pretty well I was treated really well and the food was quite good. The house wine was excellent. We were in 7, they gave us a good table, the waiter was a good waiter willing to discuss the dishes on the menu and waited patiently... More
