Last friday(30.09.16) we enjoyed having lunch at the Risorante Re Sole.
The restauant is beautiful and has a lovely terrace with surrounding garden.
When driving from Leuca to Gagliano del Capo it is located on the right hand side, there is a signpost.

We were the only guests, as it is off-season. The atmosphere was quiet and relaxed and we very much enjoyed the entertaining conversation with Luigi, the owner.
The food was extremely delicious. It was perfection based on the best local produce, cooked with passion and skill. Everything homemade. We can imagine how big the efforts are as we too are passionate cooks at home.
We had
Antipasti: Cozze alla marinara and Antipasti tipici della tradizione (I asked for vegetables only): Peperoni al pane saporito, Purea di Fave, Bietola con piccole olive nere, insalata di verdure e patate.
First course:Troccoli con frutti di mare and Orecchiette alle cime di rapa.
Second course: Trancio di Pesce Spada grigliato con lacrime di salmoriglio and Polpette al sugo di pomodoro.

Service was very good, very friendly and attentive.

A great thank you to our host Luigi and to his son for a wonderful and memorable lunch!
Grazie mille e arrivederci!

We ate dinner at this restaurant at our hotel owners recommendation. We had 4 different fish dishes and we were happy with their suggestion. I don't remember the name of the dishes but I'm sure all the food is very good. It is a nice atmosphere, friendly staff and good prices.

We were the only patrons for lunch on a warm September afternoon, so service was quite attentive.

We had just the mixed antipasti, which was more than sufficient for an entire meal.

A large variety of delicious typical Puglese dishes arrived, accompanied by 1/2 liter of the house white wine (also very good).

Total bill for two mixed antipasti (€15 each), 1/2L of wine, water and cover was only €40.

You will find Re Sole on the way to Leuca, very close to the see, and make sure you stop there for a great, original, local lunch or dinner. The chef and the daughter Federica are great hosts. We had dinner twice there this summer. Restaurant specialties are a massive and massively good set of appetizers - spanning from oysters to mussels, from local specialties such as Tajedda (a cake with seafood and potatoes) to raw shrimps - and home made pastas (a must is the black one with seafood sauce). The proposed fish plates are great too. Make sure also to try "sarago al cartoccio" (a white fish cooked in the hoven with a special recipe).

Together with the outstanding quality of raw materials and recipes, the ambient is chilled and very nice, with tables overlooking a garden with olive trees. We enjoyed it there so much that we went back. We spent around EUR 25 with wine, very solid value for money.
