"Il Castello di Momo" is a tipical restaurant in the heart of Salento, an amazing experience to enjoy. Our restaurant is located in Capece family's baronial court (1400) where you can breathe the magic atmosphere of history. Our food is a mix of genuine apulian tastes and original flavours from around the globe. We are a family crew: Peppe is the manager and his father Franco is the chef. We've always had a passion for cooking because we think it means innovation and creativity. Our costumers is a second family and we like to delight them with our specialties and our welcoming manners. "Il Castello di Momo"is a place suspended in time: you just sit down, enjoy the colours and flavours of our dishes, drink a good glass of wine and dedicated to yourself a few hours of relax.
