We went to this beach restaurant for a late lunch. We were told they had food, but the menu turned out to be extremely limited, so make sure you know what's available. We had some nice fresh seafood and tuna tartare that was fresh and delicious. Also had an incredible bottle of white wine. Lovely setting.

We went there to have lunch at around 13u30. We had some salads and some fish that was avarage quality. Rude service and prices are way to high for drinks and food. At these prices you have to give top quality witch they don't deliver. Nice views.

We have been there for dinner attracted from the location which actually is good because it's ON the sea but besides that all the rest was absolutely terrible: we took some pasta with prawns which was super greasy and tasteless and the grilled octopus which was gristly and tasteless as well (they brings with it some steamed vegetables which were...

If you like the food and scene in Capri and Positano, you will love Samarinda--a summer beach club in Leuca. It feels like a private social club of swells, young and old. The kitchen may offer now in 2016 some of the best seafood in Italy. Absolutely fabulous fresh fish everyday cooked the Neapolitan way, loads of fresh vegetables all... More

It took forever for the waiters to acknowledge my presence, then to offer me a table, give me a menu and take my order. They put me at a table at the back near the kitchen, despite the fact that there were plenty of nicer tables nearer to the water. That should have been my cue to leave.... I ordered... More

This is probably the worst restaurant I have visited in Italy - not because of the food itself (because it was never served, but given to locals)- they apparently hate tourists and when asked why we were treated disrespectfully they laughed in our faces and our young daughter started to cry (not just because of lack of food but also...

Never experienced such rude behavior before in Italy. The food was ok, but I was chocked by the rudeness of the staff. We will never ever return. The lifeguard chased after us after the lunch and was extremely rude.

Walked past this restaurant and, as it was busy and looked good, we gave it a try. As we were given Italian menus, I'm not sure they had an English ones but that was one thing we liked. We ordered pizza, I had the 4 cheese, and we were not disappointed. There was so much cheese on mine that it... More

First time in Santa Maria di Leuca on a warm and gorgeous evening. The location of the restaurant was great, the view amazing; the promise of a beautiful dinner ahead of us... But choosing "il Samarinda" definitely ruined our short experience of the city! First of all, we had to wait for over an hour to be served although the... More
