Great food but slightly stuffy atmosphere, although that may have been because we were dining quite early and so there were only about 3 tables occupied.

You should book a table in advance since the place gets really busy at least during lunch. We did not follow other reviews and tried our luck, so we had to wait and keep coming back hoping a table frees up. The food was really worth the waiting though! We tried lamb and donkey meat which both were delicious! The... More

We had dinner twice during our 4 nights in Ostuni. Both times it was excellent. The staff was both gracious and also had opinions on the meal. We shared our appetizers, pasta and a second, which allowed us to taste much more off the menu. The local wine recommendations on both nights matched our meals perfectly. A place you find... More

The food and the service was great and its not expensive has you would think. You have to get reservations in advance.

Ideal location in the heart of the old historical center of Ostuni, with a small and cosy seating area which seems to be carved straight out of the rock. The food was just excellent: we started with a burrata and eggplant/fish tempura which were both great, then had yellow tomato strasciata and walnut ravioli which were just as good, finished...

This is the most amazing restaurant in Italy. A Michelin Starred Restaurant serving fabulous food at really affordable prices. Five people ate Sunday Lunch for only €130 last Sunday! And we were walk-ins. We asked the local tourist office in Ostuni which was the best restaurant (it was our last day and we wanted a blow-out meal) and they said... More

The proprietor of our small apartment recommended this restaurant which is owned by his son-in-law. We were wary but as we were strangers to this town decided to give it a try. It was terrific: the waiter immediately understood that we two women would like to share some dishes, his recommended dishes and wine were perfect and the price was... More

Our guide recommended and this place didn't disappoint! Menu was reasonable, ambiance delightful! We shared the calamari and a pasta. Both were delicious. Staff was attentive

We had a different restaurant in mind when in Ostuni, but our hotel receptionist convinced us to try the 'Osteria del Tempo Perso'. First we had to wait outside because our table wasn't ready and we were almost ready to give up when we finally hosted inside. One look at the interior and menu and all was forgiven. A gorgeous...
