If the chairs could give a signal, here they do !!!!! All green , basilgreen to be precise ! And so is the food , the wine, the service ! After all the information you get about what to eat, how it is made, why selected, refined and still typical , simple and rich ! It's a place where you can bring persons not knowing local kitchen in a very designy athmosphere......fresh like a basil leaf !

In the centre of Lecce there's such an abondance of restaurants, you'll find yourself pondering and wondering where to go.

A bad choice is quickly made ...

This one is a good choice; classical Salentino ingredients brought in a refreshing way. Good quality, reasonable priced and above all good service by a knowledgeable and friendly waiter (my guess he's a co-owner).

I had mussels (cozze) which are in season know and gnocchi's with gorgonzola and pear ... very tastefull.

The wine (per glas) came out a freshly opened bottle of good quality ... which is rather rare, since restaurants tend to offer cheap land-wines if you take by the glass or 1/4 liter.

Next doors, there's a wine and beer-bar of the same owners, we didn't visit it, but it has the same refreshing interior ... so next time when we have time for an appertive, definitly will drop in.

Very welcoming staff, fresh new interior, quick service. With every course the food was superb! Lovely background music, not too loud. We enjoyed our stay there every bit.

This is a very modern restaurant unlike many more traditionally decorated eateries in Lecce. The food was of a very high quality and quite delicious. Wine by the glass was also very cheap and good.

This is one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. It's small, quiet, and the service is extraordinary. The food was excellent, a fine example of typical salentine cuisine, and the waiter was always there with some of the best suggestions regarding wine and dishes. The location of the restaurant is also brilliant, just off the main tourist section yet still only a minute from the centre of town.
