Description: The gastronomic restaurant of the Palazzo Papaleo can be summarized in a short but significant sentence of the great Eduardo De Filippo: "Only after studying, thorough and respected tradition, you have the right to set it aside, but always with the awareness that we owe, at least, he had helped to clarify things. Of course, if it remains anchored the past, the continuing life becomes life that stops but, if we use tradition as a springboard for it is obvious that we will jump much higher. " The constant desire to improve, the search for new flavors that blend well with the local tradition and the special attention paid to guests, are the foundations of our way of looking at work. This continuous search of taste and excellence, joins the quality of products used to give guests an unforgettable moment of culinary emotions. Always open to new trends, but respectful of tradition, we prepare dishes from land and sea unique. A staff room and kitchen, made up of young and motivated lovers of his work, has allowed in recent years at the Restaurant of Palazzo Papaleo to become part of a quality market. Their way of making sparkling and cheerful, yet courteous and professional, will accompany your every evening giving you an experience to remember. In the period of spring-autumn we will welcome you in the inner rooms by the beautiful vaulted ceilings and charming fireplaces; Summer in the terrace inside the courtyard where intense scents of the sea and countryside are mixed. The cozy dining rooms and the outdoor restaurant in the courtyard lend themselves to be reserved for small celebrations or business lunches and dinners.

Excellent food, seafood as well as "landfood". Try the Bandino antipasti plate. Service very good and friendly, although sometimes it helps to speak a bit of Italian.

Fantastic food and service. The risotto was one of the best ever and also the chocolate mousse and amuse (a creamy asparagous soup). Zucchinipasta with pesto was the only minor disappointment. Only indoor seating.
Good playground for kids

Off the main road, through a farm past goat herders you arrive at tranquility. Beautiful rooms, pool, terrace and restaurant, excellent wine, food and people. Must visit when in Puglia!

We have had a mixed bag of restaurants on our trip to Puglia, and this was our last night out together, as a group of 8.
4 out of the group started with the degustation, which ended up being a 4 course starter. Feedback was very positive with 2 courses stated as outstanding. Perhaps in hindsight as little too much to start with, but overall good.
The fish was incredibly fresh, and was brought out to us at the beginning to show us.
2 non fish eaters in our group, which I think shocked the owner, but he was incredibly accommodating.
The service was excellent, a nice ambience, and overall a positive experience.
I think I picked badly, I got tuna and it was quite average but overall, everyone was very happy, and a very fairly priced meal, which included plenty of wine!
