We went in the restaurant the 2th April. We waited long time to someone got the order and we waited the same time for the food! Pasta without any flavours or salt. Expensive and really poor .

Fantastic seafood and great service. Great view of the castle too. The raw seafood wasn't the best but the rest was great.

We ate at this restaurant two times. The first time we were wondering the streets of Otranto and decided to stop here for dinner. The service was great(although only one waiter knew english and the menu was in italian). The food(pepata di cozze) impressed us...More

In the middle of the historic center of Otranto, a few steps from the characteristic Bastioni, the restaurant "C'era una volta" provides the tipical food of Salento cuisine, allowing you to taste the flavors of the past immersed in a frame that only Otranto can offer. You can taste our food either outdoors or in an inner room with air conditioning.
