The place was recommended by our shuttle driver as the best seafood restaurant in Bari. As we landed late in the evening and the restaurant was very close to the place we were staying in, we decided to try it. They seated us even though we arrived later than 10.30 PM. Impeccable service and great food! Worth visiting it.

Such a treat! The antipasti were delicious, the fish so fresh and perfectly cooked and the cannolo with ricotta cheese a poetry!

Oh my, where do I start... I came here with my husband and started with the raw sea food appatizer. 20Eur for a plate of antipasti might seem a lot but once you taste this barese goodness... Ach. Sea urchins, oysters, mussels, calamari, shrimp - all of them straight from the sea and as God has created them - dressed... More

I came very late for lunch and they prepared me pasta with shrimps. It was delicious and good price. I was so happy that I reserved table for dinner again. Everything was fresh and delicious. Totally recommendable.

Cannot complain much about the food, but it looks like they are more concerned about sitting as many people as possible, then providing them with a good time / experience. Service is quite slow and not particularly friendly: while you ask for advice, they may look somewhere else and / or talk to their colleagues; I got the wrong dessert;... More

Got there & were dumped off at a table with little acknowledgment. My husband ordered a bottle of wine from the list that they didn't have & the waiter told us the wine prices were more expensive than actually listed. How can a place like this not have the current prices on their wine menu? The food was OK but... More

Splendid location next to the historic centre, excellent service (with a smile) and food that can only be described as heavenly, from the antipasti to the dessert (and however difficult it may be, leave space for the dessert .. the cannoli, the ricotta cake with black forect berries, are both out of this world).

We had dinner in Al Pescatore. It turned out a bad experience. The waiters are not very welcoming. The starter, grilled verdure, was only half burned paprika. The main course was pesce spada. It had a "fishy" bad taste. We didnot eat it and left the place. A disappointing experience.
