Some traditional Salento dishes well-prepared:
Pepata di Cozze (Peppered Mussels) fresh and tasty but maybe a bit more pepper would have suited my own taste.
Grilled tuna alla Salentina, exceptional. This really is a dish to be tasted and on its own makes the trip here worthwhile.
Orecchiette alle cima di rapa (ear-shaped pasta with turnip tops). This typical local dish here in Puglia, even more so in Salento (the very tip of the “heel” of Italy below which the Adriatic and Ionian seas meet), was excellent with all the succulence of the greens maintained.
Wine very good (Negroamaro Piromàfor 2011 Cantina Valle dell'Asso) not cheap but well worth the money.
The place is somewhat “rough and ready” but frequented by locals as well as tourists, which is usually a good sign.
