Makani is also a lounge bar offering a huge selection of cocktails and fine spirits. Good not only for lunch and dinner, but also for aperitifs and after-dinners. It’s near the fantastic setting of the historical center of Lecce, a few steps away from the ancient walls and the Castle of Carlo V. This elegant and welcoming place offers a modern design with a warm play of lights and a comfortable space outside. Passion for the ingredients quality and care in the presentation of dishes; Taste and creativity in Italian cuisine and many specialties of the sushi universe for all kinds of palates, from connoisseurs to the less demanding and experienced ones. The Italian cuisine we intend to offer is based on the original inspiration of traditional dishes blended with fusion cuisine, giving new life to the flavors representing our culinary experience. Sushi, our flagship specialty for years, is a light, healthy and genuine cuisine with innumerable nutritional properties and it respects freshness, flavor, color and consistency of each food, with particular attention to presentation. Everything is prepared with wisdom and creativity, according to the most restrictive techniques and health rules and with the experience and creativity of our chefs. The clientele therefore has a wide choice of first and second dishes of seafood as well as meat and vegetables, soups, carpaccios, nigiri / hosomaki / uramaki of raw and cooked fish and delicious mixed sushi dishes, which offer the possibility of sampling every type of specialties, from classic flavors to dishes and special recipes specially created by the staff. The staff always care about hospitality, friendliness and professionalism for their customers: families ready to enjoy new specialties, couples who can appreciate the intimate and comfortable atmosphere, groups of friends who share the fun of trying ethnic and imaginative food , or those who want to have a work lunch or dinner in the most suitable frame.

“Wonderful owner”
Reviewed 14 February 2013

I have been eating hear occasionally for a few months now, and the wonderful owner remembers me every time I come. He is always warm, welcoming, attentive and a gentleman. Sushisalento is the best tasting and best priced out of the three sushi restaurants I have tried in Lecce. I always enjoy my meal here and I really like the new, fried additions to the menu! I'd recommend this to anybody who is looking for a good sushi meal without the fuss of a snooty sushi bar.

“Rudely served up super noodles”
Reviewed 12 October 2012

After over 5 weeks in Lecce having almost reached boredom point with Italian food, thought I would give this place a try. Big mistake. The place had an overwhelming smell of stale fish not ideal in a sushi place. The surly waitress seemed to take great offence at my all be it not fantastic Italian.I ordered the curry udon, what was then served up senza smile was not dissimilar to a packet of curry sober noodles in a plastic bowl with the price tag of 9€. The over heated saki was served in a cracked and chipped flask, this I didn't point out in my stumbling Italian for fear of incurring more wrath from the less than welcoming hostess. The experience was so bad that I failed to leave a tip and for that to happen the service has to be truley faulty towers. Wagamma this is not
