“Excellent food and atmosphere”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

A really good, honest and enjoyable restaurant. The degustazione of antipasti was excellent and interesting. Four of our party had beef, which they presented as a generous tagliata on a hot metal plate in the centre of the table - quite a spectacle and absolutely delicious. Strongly recommended.

“Wide choice of local dishes plus Pizzas and excellent wine list.”
Reviewed 11 September 2012

A long established restaurant situated in a vaulted roof cellar, serving both traditional local food and excellent Pizzas.

Finally I found a Restaurant in the area with an excellent wine list of both local and Italian wines from all regions. Among the local reds there are some great wines from Negroamaro and Nero di Troia, and Primitivo grapes, but try and find one of the older vintages where the tanins may be more balanced.

I recommend the "Pizza de la casa" and the anti pastas contained a wide selection of the local favourites, both hot and cold.

Prices were fair value, both for the food and the wine.

The Restaurant was open on a Monday evening when most in the region were closed, which is why we chose it although we had to travel further to get there, but we were not disapointed by our selection.

“a great place to eat”
Reviewed 10 July 2012

This is a hidden treasure of a place, with a wonderful cavernous feeling in its underground, vaulted ceiling setting. Wonderful local foods and wines, wellprepared at low prices. No flaws we could see.

“Great basic trattoria”
Reviewed 9 June 2012 via mobile

This is an underground trattoria in the underwhelming town of fasano. We travelled here from borgo egnazia in search of some real Italian food without the price tag of the hotel.
Our family of 5 ate for 80 euros. The pizzas were great. The mixed antipasti were nice but with a lot of emphasis on cheese. Parma ham and melon were superb. The spiedino and salad were excellent. The kids ordered mussels which were good. We felt the locals had a little more choice of food than we did but when we asked for the mussels which we saw others eating it was not a problem. In
Summary an excellent little trattoria with some great food. Good value too.
