We managed two dinners here during our holiday. The service was good, the meats of good quality and the cooking of them excellent. We'd only walked from town but an Italian young couple at the next table had travelled from Oria. Not an easy journey but it shows commitment to quality. Jug wine as always in Martina is very acceptable but for 16€ some quite special Primativo is available. SPECIAL mention must go to the bombette with asparagus and grana. Sublime and worth the journey on its own.

Locals go here. pics your meet from the counter, they cook it up, eat it in their restaurant. super prices. great house wine, super fries, and antipastas for basically no cover charge, or very little. has all the local meat specialties, and they are great. wish i could have eaten there more often!!! about a 10 minute easy walk from old town center,and WAY less expensive and real than the tourist trap restaurants on the town square, like restaurant garibaldi. you eat here fore 1/3 the price for better food!!!!! really enjoyed our experience at la locanda

Martina Franca is known in the area for its meat and restaurants, so competition is high. The choice of food was good, service a bit slow at times, but not unusual for the area. Everyone was well fed and the Angus steak went down very well. The seating acceptable for the price you pay and would return again. I would add that for a better ambience there is another restaurtant 3 mintues drive from here run by the same family in Via Massafra, but I guess the price will be slightly higher. You wouldn't really come here for a romantic meal whereas in Via Massafra it's possible.

Dining here was a great experience. We were the only travelers; all others were local. In a large clean glass display there are several meats to select from- beef, lamb, pork, chicken. Some are cutlets, some sausage, we selected the 'bombette' which were made from pork rolled and stuffed with various offerings: cheese, asparagus, eggplant, mushrooms. After making your selection you are seated. We ordered water and wine. We also ordered the salad and potatoes to accompany the grilled meat. Then we were served a plate of bruschetta and carrots and fennel as appetizers (no charge). The grilled bombette were served with delicious oven roasted potatoes and a large bowl of salad- easily enough for 4 for the 2 of us. It was impossible to leave those potatoes unfinished! The skins were crispy and the insides were creamy. All that including 4 bombette was 20 euro - an extremely satisfying experience. We stayed at the Savito B&B right down the street- also a great experience.
