We were in search of this spot on the suggestion of a friend. What a relief to locate it on a damp Sunday evening just as the clouds unleashed the rain! We were nicely greeted by the young man at the door; the somewhat grumpy...More

Sadly, many towns and restaurants in this area have become touristy, but Le Chicche is a wonderful find, beautifully situated, serving many local specialities, and was a wonderful experience. So good in fact we went back there two days later! Cisternino (the town) was our...More

Mimmo immediately made us feel at home in his cozy restaurant, we utterly enjoyed our lunch, especially the orecchiette with the Paulina meat and tomato sauce. Absolutely worth the visit!

A real treat, right in the centre of Cisternino. Great local tastes (better than most we tasted in the area), excellent wine suggestions and a really friendly service from the patron. Very good value too.

This is a cosy little restaurant with small tables spilling out into the lane outside. We enjoyed the atmosphere of an outside table. The service was a bit patchy and so was the food. Some of the meat was lovely, some a bit rough.
