Went here on TripAdvisor recommendations and round the corner from where we were staying. Off season so restaurant was empty, but service was friendly. Pizza was delicious and good value at only €5 and bottle of wine very reasonably priced.

A bit off the path of the usual roads crowded with tourists and full of noise, this restaurant offers a nice retreat for the people who like to have a dinner in the relaxed atmosphere of a garden.

It's definitely a good choice if you're visiting Lecce. The place itself is beautiful and quaint. There were 6 of us, 4 of which order Pizza, myself and a friend fish.

Very lost and raining hard we pulled over to put a different address in the GPS and looked up and here was this restaurant. It was very busy, but they fit us in. So happy as the food was fantastic. The seafood appetizer to start was unbelievable. The stuffed swordfish was great along with the whole roasted fish. Need to... More
