Our third year of visiting this village and we ate twice here last week. Tbe quality of the meat is exceptional and cooked to perfection. We had fantastic steaks, pork, chicken and sausages, lovely salad and crispy fries, good wine, water and all for under €40 for two! Why has this concept not been started in the Uk?!

When we are at our house near Ostuni we eat at this Braceria by choice. It is an interesting concept to us Brits as you choose your meat - made in different ways. They then cook it to your taste and bring it to the table with whatever side dishes you order. A litre carafe of white or red is... More

An interesting experience, you choose your meats, plain or prepared. They cook that meat and present it at the table with salad and chips. The meat is excellent and cooked well and cannot be faulted. Wine, however, is just about OK - shame. Will return often.

As a family we really enjoyed our visit to this no menu restaurant. The entertainment started for us with who my children named "Mario" the car parking attendant who blows his whistle and waves his arms and torch around to make sure we parked in exactly the right spot ! It was very busy but there are lots of tables... More

The location is quite unique and it´s practically only meat you get too eat. We found the local variations with pork quite greasy. Order very little, you can always add more as the meat is quite heavy.

I got here with my family upon some friends advice and all of us where super satisfied. The place is very simple, you choose the meet at the counter, sit at a table and it's done! Meat quality is super and was cooked perfectly, we enjoyed our pork steak (capocollo), bombette e gnumareddi until we could literally eat no more.... More
