“Our favorite place in Polignano”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

We stayed in Polignano for 9 days, tried lots of little restaurants and found that one was the greatest. It's located on a big place and the terrasse of the restaurant has the best view to look at people or to see the animations in Polignano (concerts, animations in August). The staff was GREAT, super cool and super kind with us. And the food: very very good. Especially the primi piatti (pasta) cooked perfectly. We had a very good time at the Infermento. This is really a place to know, not touristic just simple and great.

“Great value, staff and food”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

The staff was very accommodating. The outdoor seating area was full, but they discussed the situation among themselves, then quickly rearranged a few tables and added one for me. One of the waiter's spoke English and explained the entire menu to me (way beyond the call of duty!), and then made several wonderful recommendations when I asked what was typical for the region. He even suggested wine pairings. He was so patient and kind; he even comped me for the wine.

I can't recommend Intermento highly enough. Professional, good quality food at reasonable prices.

“Do not let the modest looks fool you”
Reviewed 14 June 2012

A wonderful experience: Tasty local food with modern twist. Excellent wines of good value to match the food. If you are interested, you will get to know everything you need about Puglian wines in a nutshell. Try the local beers as well. Very kind service - in English, too. We warmly recommend.

“Great food, great wine, well-informed owner”
Reviewed 27 May 2012

I'll write this in English, as so far an English-language review seems to be missing. I had heard about the place through the Association (Infermento's owner and I are both nationaly-trained sommeliers). My only regret wasn't that I hadn't gone sooner. Three dinners in three nights, and each was excellent. Further, with Giuseppe's wine training, he really knows pugliese wine, especially those based on nero di Troy (I had to translate the name of the grape, as, oddily the name sets off the obscenity detector), the local red (he recommends those from elevated fields, which give better perfume). The kitchen didn't miss a note either, getting it just right, a mix of local ingredients, spun in a way that makes them seem new again.
That the owners are a husband and wife team is also especially nice. You feel welcome right away.
Highly recommend it.

“Thank you Guiseppe... More a wine bar...”
Reviewed 11 May 2010

Thank you Guiseppe...

More a wine bar than a restaurant, and with the owner's help we had a lovely bottle of local red.

The food was good - portions a little small - but very tasty.

Overall, good value.
