Expected a better restaurant after reading reviews. Not special. The meats were not very tasty as they were tough. Pasta was not special

We went to this restaurant twice during our stay. The first time was our first day when we had just arrived in the town from the airport during the middle of a massive rainstorm. It was so welcoming and sitting sharing wonderful pasta vongole, fritto misto and orchettite . Given the rain we were in no rush so followed it... More

Excellent family friendly restaurant with expansive menu, very good quality cooking and welcoming atmosphere. We came here at 2.30pm on both a weekend and weekday without issue. Very well recommended.

Tried many restaurants in Cisternino, and if you want to stay away from the meat - fornello pronto restaurants, Osteria La Valle is probably your choice. Great selection of local specialties, you can start with the mixed appetisers, which is a selection of local fish and non-fish starters, including local ricotta - fantastic. As a main course you can try... More

We have eaten in many excellent restaurants in Cisternino, Locorotondo and around (we have had a holiday home in the area for 10 years) and "Osteria la Valle" has now nudged into first place in my preferred eateries. The food is always freshly prepared, as you would expect, but somehow the flavours here are more vibrant and the dishes are... More

We had a lunch party for 14 people to celebrate completing a small project locally. Great service, lovely anti pasti and fabulous main course of pasta washed down with about 15 gallons of wine. Great place! Great service! Great value! Wish we had somewhere like this at.home!

Another great find in Cisternino; we ate here twice the food was so good. The deep fried baby octopus starter was truly outstanding, and the swordfish carpaccio with orange and pink grapefruit was amongst the best raw seafood we've tasted anywhere. The steaks are well above average; the Brazilian cut of beef known as Picanha (sp?) was new to us... More

Restaurant is back on form. Excellent antipasti, primi of fat pasta with crab, the daily special, was mouth watering. Terrific wine list, and water on draught. Really good dinner in lovely surroundings.

These two friends have created something very special. Organic beautifully prepared food in a relaxed atmosphere with an awesome list of traditionally made wines. After stumbling on this great find my girlfriend chose it for a very important birthday. Did not disappoint!! Two hipsters doing the artisanal thing. Not to be missed
