Just 2 min away from the touristic route we had lunch at this little marvelous restaurant. The food was excellent, house wine good and a very kind staff.

We had a delicious meal at Spessite - house white wine and antipasti. Lots and lots of antipasti: fried potatoes, grilled mushrooms & peppers, salted grilled whole chilies, mozzarella & burrata cheeses, olives, meatballs in tomato sauce, fave beans whipped & baked in a casserole, olives, boiled wheat, cappacola, crusty bread with tomato pesto. With lovely almond cookies for dessert.... More

Delicious food and the staff was amazing! Real home made cooked food as my mother used to cook! I'm pugliese and I went there with my British students! Don't miss the opportunity to go there at least once if you are in Ostuni

We had the selection menu E19 which consisted of lots of small dishes of local specialities, and was very good. Atmosphere and service were good. Well worth a vist.

Excellent food and great house wine was recommended to me and will be using again before we leave. If you like trying multiple tastes at one sitting go for it

Really nice, friendly and cosy restaurant, attended by the owners. Simply homemade local cuisine, but one of the best pasta we had in the whole trip!!!

We went to Spessite for dinner and it was a great experience. The husband cooks and the wife manages the 'front office' - we had antipasti - there were I think 10 plates of antipasti, just brilliant, orechiette. Great food all around. You get a real taste of Puglian and home atmosphere with the 'Italian Mama' experience! Heartily recommended!
