Everything about this restaurant was charming! The owner Maria was delightful from begining to end, kind, helpful and very friendly! The food equally matched the atmosphere and feel of the restaurant... which was amazing! Beautifuly presented on the plate each dish had a delicate, moorish exquisite taste sensation. The evening was perfect, and so was our meals and home made puddings! Coffee to end our meal was utter perfection. Thankyou Maria, we will return next year!xxx

We visited this restaurant in May 2017, The staff were very friendly and helpful, however the meal was overpriced. We both had the meat option and when it arrived the accompanying vegetables (a few over roasted mushrooms) you could have got on one spoon. We paid 40 euros per head. We did not consume any alcohol and only had a very small pudding.

A very cold wind welcomed us in Otranto, we needed a place where to get lunch and some warmth. Most restaurants in the old city are for summer tourists, this one has a nice room, and a local menu

Durante ogni visita nel Salento si torna a La Bella Otranto. Oggi, primo giorno di riapertura per la stagione primavera/estate, abbiamo provato una selezione di deliziosi antipasti ed i miei amatissimi tagliolini ai frutti di mare.
Il servizio è stato ottimo come sempre, Manuela, Maria e Simone sono stati gentili e molto attenti ad ogni esigenza.
La cucina ha servito i piatti in tempi ottimi.
So già che tornerò!

During each visit in the beautiful Salento I always go back to the restaurant La Bella Otranto (in Otranto as for the restaurant name). Today was the opening day for the Spring/Summer season and we tried a selection of appetisers. Each of them was delicious.
We also had Tagliolini ai frutti di mare which is long fresh pasta with sea food: my absolute favourite!
The staff, Manuela, Maria and Simone, are kind and helpful. The kitchen was fast in cooking the food so we didn't have to wait long to eat what we ordered.
I know that I will be back again during my next visit.

Food quality on the mediocre side. To be fair a dish which was not as expected was replaced without quibble.The lady serving us had a bit of a take it or leave it attitude but the gentleman who was serving and who spoke English well was keen to repair the situation as best he could and was helpful. Overall just about acceptable but I see other diners had some excellent experiences but we did not.
