Since many years I wished to have a dinner in this Historic trattoria in Gioia del Colle but for some reasons I never had a chance to do it. At the end this moment arrived and I was so sorry that I waited so long . This is a tiny nice place close to the Castello in the old part... More

Charming restaurant with great pasta and cheeses selections. The smoked burrata is a must. Their seasonal specialties were wonderful. The owner Vittoria is such a delight. We enjoyed it so much that we did a return visit.

Our party of 5 had a fantastic experience tasting 7 or 8 different antipasti. The smoked burrata with the fig sauce was excellent along with the eggplant parmigiana and a cabbage flan all made a return trip a must not to mention the stuffed zucchini flowers. We also enjoyed two types of pasta with so unique flavor profiles and all... More

We were looking for a real Gioia del Colle mozzarella and burrata to let our international friends to taste it. What Ristorante Pugliese offered was perfect, a huge and exquisite sequence of apetizers, including fresh cow mozzarella, burrata, smoked burrata, truffle burrata, local salami and pancetta, etc. We were looking for a light lunch and it ended up into a...

This trattoria fully deserves its high ratings. The food is deliciously authentic - the mixed antipasto a delight. As was the mixed grill. We were recommended a Gioia del Colle primitivo wine which was also a joy. All unpretentious and served and presented with care and attention.

My wife and I dined here the first night of our trip. What a great experience. The husband is the chef and the wife (who speaks excellent English) is the hostess and waitress. The food and service were great. I highly recommend this restaurant if you are in the area.

Luckily this trattoria was recommended by our tour guide, Angelo, from experiencepuglia.com. It was wonderful as promised. Vittoria, the owner and wife of the chef, spoke English fluently and suggested that we let her pick the antipasti..... every morsel of food was fresh, local and deliciously prepared. We lost count of courses after the 6th one but remember wonderful flavors... More

We were on a cycling trip and just passing through Gioia, it happened to be lunch and we had the good fortune of asking a local where we should eat. He led us through a literal maze to Trattoria Pugliese and we thank the gods of good fortune for this serendipity. This was hands down the VERY BEST meal we... More
