Nice local Italian food, fresh fish as it is everywhere in Monopoli. You can try raw fish products here, they have special technology how to produce it safe. It is very local. Nice wine. Quite busy with locals.

This restaurant was rate high on TA, however, while the antipasto was very good as was the wine, the pastas offered were average. They were combined with fish or shrimp or clams which did not help the pasta.

Casual, loud, small restaurant near the port where the locals go (my relatives insist on taking me here year after year). Huge and diverse antipasti featuring everything from octopus to fried veggies. Pastas with seafood combinations are consistently good. Usually an excellent selection of fresh...More
