Food was prepared with great care and attention. Service was also very attentive. Not many tables so booking is essential.

Please book - while we enjoyed our lunch we saw many people turned away for failing to book.

Francesco takes enormous amounts of pleasure in creating a wonderful delicious meal for each table.

Both my wife and I enjoy d each of the plates he prepared for us. We could not identify any of the red wine varieties so we put ourselves in his hands. Our stipulation that we love wines with a fruity flavour.

Our entir dining experience was rounded off with a tiramisu (I plead d with him to bring the smallest serve). Oh I was so glad we finished with a small piece! It was indescribably scrumptious - considering I normally avoid tiramisu.......

Cheers,
Greg

The best meal we had during our holiday in Puglia. We were a group of 10 and we all left the restaurant happy and satisfied with the experience. Excellent food and service. Book ahead to avoid disappointment.

Maybe not the best place for non-Italian speakers as the waitors were not able to tell us who's food it was coming out so the starters were all mixed up and those who ordered the Cantina special antipasto plate had about 10 dishes spread all over the table for 6. Mixed bread starter very heavy and a bit stodgy although 2 out of 3 tasty. Mains for us was breaded pork - very tough & veal rolls in tomato very tender but no different to a nice tomato beef caserole I make at home. Salad just OK and chips seemed to be packet crisps warmed - oily & soggy. House wine was OK. The noise from tbe VERY close kitchen was loud & when the dishwaser was being filled & emptird (often) it was deafening. Sadly after much hype we left quite disappointed & E50 poorer.

Lovely small restaurant run by family. Definitely need to book. Kitchen open to view. We shared a very tasty Antipasto plate. Very interesting menu if you can manage more !
