From our arrival, to our dessert...everything was perfect. There were 12 of us and we had so many dishes to pass that we were too full to order a main course. The staff was so gracious and the food to die for...thanks.

We needed to fly all the way down to Puglia, in the deep south of Italy. To be more precise: roughly between Bari and Lecce. Here Maria Pia runs her fantastic ristorante I Templari. In a beautiful restored cellar. Restored with her own hands. The atmosphere in the restaurant is loose. Maria Pia is a great host, speaks well English... More

We visited in October on a chilly evening. However, the restaurant, the food and the welcome from everybody here was just fabulous. We enjoyed the famous antipasti - one between the two of us which was extensive and very tasty- and then had a three small plate pasta selection to follow which allowed us the opportunity to taste three different...

This was the gastronomic highlight of our holiday in Puglia.Lovely old stone ambiance, with the friendly charming service of the lady owner and super, super fiord provided by her chef-husband. The antipasti were marvellous -- some 12 dishes - and they just kept coming.The owner-managers are passionate about high quality food and the passion shows. Make sure to go --... More

I Templari, on the edge of lovely Martina Franca's Centro Storico is a bit of a find. Apparently run entirely by friendly women, it serves above average quality food at reasonable prices. Beware the Antipasti as it looks very generous ... we opted for a sharing pasta dish (absolutely delicious) followed by the swordfish steak (generous and succulent). We were... More

A nice place to be and the service is professional and kind. You have to try the variety of anti pasti but be careful not to take a lot afterwards as 16 courses A great wine selection as well

If you come to Martina Franca seek out this excellent restaurant. It's a little way from the main centre of the town but all the better for that. You may even be able to park virtually outside! The antipasti is exceptional and certainly a meal in itself. The staff are excellent and time the arrival of the multitude of dishes... More

The menu is explained in detail, the waiter is always available, very friendly Free courses were brought very nicely before our main course (we didn't have antipasti ) The food is fine, not excellent. Don't take a table in the garden opposite the entrance, it was a bit smelly.

This is a wonderful restaurant. The service impeccable, every dish excellent. Everything feels fresh including delicious pastas made from locally sourced ingredients. The complimentary starters were delicious. The swordfish was perfectly grilled and the filet steak excellent too. Finishing off with Panna cotta with fresh berries. The only downside was drain smell from outside from next door. Worth making an... More
