That was our first time in this kind of restaurant and it was really nice. It is really nice to order your food at the butcher and then a chef put it in a big oven with fire wood. Meat was so juicy and tasty!...More

This is my favorite place to eat in Cisternino. I love the idea of being able to look at meat first in order to select it. Don't over-order though. The sausages are good, but I enjoyed the neck of pork the best - a bit...More

I have been here on 3 occasions. On all occasions the food has been delicious. The bombetti are so good, and the baked potatoes are the best I've ever had! The house wine is also very nice. Everything is also extremely affordable and reasonably priced....More

Great place for meat dishes. As you walk in you select the meals you desire and pay by weight and define how you want cooked. Meats will be served at table with selected additional items. Place is very very crowded. Reservations a must.

This place is a must try when in Puglia. It is a restaurant and a butcher shop at the same time. So you go in, choose your meat cut, or selection of tasters/platter like selections such as sausages and liver dishes, and they cook it...More

You visit the butcher to select your meat choices which are then baked in a wood fired oven. FYI-the meat tends to be on the rare side. The food and the service were very good. These were the best baked potatoes we have ever eaten....More
