Description: This is a small osteria located in a small unnamed street off Via Orto Nannavecchia. Placed in a semi-cellar buildt in stone with vaulted ceilings. The food is local produced and homemade. The antipasti is tasty and come in great numbers. And the bill is small for such a good food. This is the place to come again and again, being met with a handshake and a smile.

What a gem. Always packed out with the locals. That was the reason we ate here on the 7th June. Excellent service and the House Special was really good it just kept coming and coming. Main course we had a platter of local meats and the fish platter was exceptional. Three beers, two bottles of water and a jug of house wine plus the food €39 for 2. Really cheerful place would highly recommend.

This is the sort of place all the locals eat... it’s such good food and very reasonably priced... on our first visit it was totally booked out so we booked for the next day... thank goodness we did! The starters just kept coming and coming and everything was so tasty! Great house red wine too! You can’t go wrong if you choose to eat here...

I’ve reviewed this place before as it has a special place in my heart and was a real find when I first stumbled on it years ago.

This time was the first time with kids. Despite turning up on a Sunday Lunchtime without a reservation and a big celebration party due in an hour, a table was quickly found.

Food is essential Puglia, simple and fresh. Great antipasti, fresh orecchiette, good sausages and potatoes, local wine.

Full of locals.

Go!

As a local in Ceglie Messapica we often have a visit to this small family run Osteria.
Good old fashioned service and food always fresh and plentiful. Really need to book most times.

We drove to Ceggli Messapica just for this restaurant. I was worried as we walked through the quiet town that we would find that the restaurant was closed, but as we approached we heard the clinking of dishes. We entered only to be told they were full. Since it was 20 minutes before they closed on a Sunday afternoon, we assumed this meant "go away tourists" since it was clearly only locals inside. Luckily, we stuck around as another man talked with his coworker and then informed us we could wait 10 minutes. Thank you sir! We thoroughly enjoyed every part of this meal - the house special antipasta, the pastas of the day, the grilled meat, and the cafe served with cookies. Our twin four year olds also enjoyed the food - it was a family friendly environment. The service was also outstanding!
