I do not know what it is like during the week, but on weekends you MUST have reservations. This is a very popular place and once you eat here you will know why. Great food, wine and service at a very reasonable price.

We ate here on two consecutive nights of our 5 nights in Monopoli and consider it negligent that we didn't eat here every night. Do not miss the Il Guazzetto fish soup with its mussels, prawns, clams and three fish in a tomato broth that is so sweet and delicious. It is the best seafood dish either of us have ever eaten .
The fish ( sea bass) had been alive at 6pm when brought in from the port only a few hundred metres away and baked under a layer of sliced potatoes on one side and zucchini on the other side. The seafood antipasti is impressive -- cooked and raw seafood -- perfectly fresh and tasting of the sea. The service by the young owner is warm and efficient ( this place is busy even on a Monday night). With 2 main courses, a shared antipasti, mineral water, and a decent bottle of negroamaro the bill was E59.

We had been recommended here so our expectations were high but we were not disappointed. It's a pretty and charming restaurant and the food really is as good as everyone says it is. We have to get back there someday.

Il Guazzetto has it together-great food, pleasant staff and good value. The 3 of us had the mixed antipasti (perhaps more octopus than I might have preferred), shared two pastas and a whole fish (cooked and seasoned perfectly) with water and wine for about 80 euro.

Definitely one of the best fish restaurant I have ever seen. Massive portions, amazing quality and good value for money.
We had raw fish antipasti which was very very fresh and massive. We ordered two portions for four people and it was more than enough. Also the grilled fish was perfectly cooked.
We were four and the total bill was 120euros (2 antipasti, 4 mains, one bottle of wine, 4 glasses of prosecco, 4 dessert and limoncello).
