We've been for the second time in this restaurant. The food is very good and the atmosphere very nice! We paid 55€ for antipasti fritti plate, tagliatta di manzo, pizza, a bottle of a great red wine, water, amaro and panna cotta.

The small village of Felline, in the heart of the Salento region (Puglia, Italia), is not quite the first place that comes to mind when looking for a good place to eat a pizza or to try local Salento specialities. I mean, you need a map to find it, though it's just 3km off the main highway 274. The 'Ancient... More

The portion sizes were much smaller than before and the service felt very rushed and almost like they were trying to get my self and family out the restaurant as... More

L’Antica Monastario Has nice location by the Monastery. Dining room is very nice. We had ravioli, the mixed grill of meat, water and ¼ litre of wine for 30E. This included a 3E cover charge. Our third time here, but each time it seems to be not as good as the previous times.

My family leaves nearby and we have been here before during the autumn/winter seasons. Last time I was astonished by the food. We had a huge variety of antipasti. Delicious small plates of high cuisine meeting tradition and their home made pasta was to die for. We came back in July to celebrate my last day of holidays in Salento.... More

They are a lot of years that I spent my dinner there, and every year I notice improvement in everything. In food, in wine availability, in professionalism and kindness of staffing, in beauty of location. I’ll return every summer there and I’ll continue to suggest this place to all my friends.
