We had the 8 course menu whilst staying here and it was beautiful. The concept is that the menu is secret before you arrive, you just tell them what you don't eat beforehand. This is great and I loved the surprise. Wines were regularly topped up and food was so delicious, amazingly rich homemade tomato sauce and some of the... More

My husband and I had the pleasure to dine here for 2 nights while staying at the Masseria (separate review).. He also enjoyed breakfast each morning. Like many other restaurants in southern Italy it is small so reservations are recommended. Family run the menu is pre-set ranging from 4 to 8 courses, if you choose 8 courses come with your... More

Super elegant and very charming Masseria. We spent about five or maybe six hours having dinner their, and could have spent even more time (not that we were hungry after all those courses). The place is amazing, local food is cooked to perfection and our wine glasses were never empty. We got to try their locally produced olive oil and... More

Our evening started with a visit to the masseria and gardens with an interesting and entertaining explanation of the history of the estate from the owner. This was followed by an eight course menu of the most delicious dishes all presented beautifully and explained in finite detail. Everything that was served was produced or grown on the estate or obtained... More

Dinner at this place was magical, the venue was something out of a movie set, and the food was delicious. For what you pay, the experience plus the food, it is definitely worth a visit.

We had an evening dinner at Il Frantoio. It was beyond words. The setting is breathtaking. The tour was great, not to be missed. Our meal was spectacular, beautiful place settings, beautiful setting with flowering trees and courtyard. Food was great. And we bought olive oil and facial products on site that were great too.

My experience at Masseria Il Frantoio was magical. I was there with a large group of wine journalists. We attended a pasta making seminar then a wonderful meal. The food was authentic, typical, and absolutely delicious. Our host was charming. It was a great place to dine. The rooms also look lovely. I want to go back!

Thank Michelle W

Between different aromas and flavors, like the different seasons, Puglia’s kitchen steps forward like a lightweight dance between earth and sea. Among the white stones and an always tempered climate, its food, today as yesterday, reveals to be a real pleasure and a beauty cure. A delicate maneuvering took us years, to disclose the trick of the ancient dishes the women used to prepare for their husbands, coming home from hard days of work on the fields. The recipes are actualized according to our creative taste, but they guarantee that connection with tradition that astonishes and satisfies. A kitchen with female cooks at “0 Km” and not with chefs, because the nourishment of the body and the soul are the task that require the precision and the sensibility of a woman and of a mother..The dishes are prepared every day with the products of the farm: from the citrus grove of the 17 century we obtain the fruits for the jams; with the durum wheat in addition to the famous bread from Puglia we prepare by hand many types of pasta; along the trails of the estate, among the centuries-old olive trees and the dry-stone wall grow asparagus, tassel hyacinth, pumpkin, sprout of butcher’s broom, artichoke, legumes and “wild chicory”; from the vegetable garden behind the dining room the herbs. It won’t happen to eat the same things twice, not even if your stay lasts two weeks. Every day there is the taste of discovery with which ‘Il Frantoio’ conveys the typicalness of the harvest through the creative taste of the kitchen. Seated in the restaurant, with the stone vaults and floors, next to the fireplace, it might happen to you to get orzotto (made with pearl barley) with pumpkin and sprout of butcher’s groom, wild artichokes cooked in wine and tassel hyacinth with orange honey or laganari (type of fresh pasta) with filled tomatoes or maybe lamb with potatoes from the crock pan. All of this irrigated with excellent wines carefully selected form the best producers of Puglia. A lunch or a dinner at the “Frantoio” is concluded with one of the 35 different liqueurs prepared in the Masseria, but be careful to not miss the one flavored with olive leafs, it is unique in the whole world!During the summer months this theater of culture and gastronomy moves in the open air, in the central courtyard and as a guest said one day: “We are in a painting”*Open also for external guests
