The restaurant was booked until after 10pm when we wanted to book a table, so I would advise calling some days before you want to go in the high season. The menu had a good variation and the restaurant had a nice atmosphere. The food...More

Always a favourite when coming to Specchia. Attentive service, delicious food, fresh and well presented, all in the beautiful surroundings of Specchia's countryside. A must.

This is definitely one of best restaurant in the area. Food is well prepared and nicely served and you can taste the typical things and flavours of Puglia in a slightly more sofisticated way of cooking. Service was good and polite and we didn't have...More
