Whilst Bari offers the perfect background, La Cecchina brings you the most delicious dinner for an unforgettable evening! The service is kind and swift, and the landlady is absolutely amazing! The dishes offer a taste of Apulia with a twist. Definitely try out the antipasti...More

The food is great, the hospitality is warm and the ambience is real Italian. The view is impressive and the people have passion for service. It's a place to re-visit.

The location is touristy, but don’t let that stop you. Everything we had was well prepared, the staff were helpful, and the wine (if you haven’t tried Fiano, it may make you rethink Italian whites) was delightful.

Great location right on Piazza Mercantile. Great food and wine. Not very expensive and very very good. I highly recommend the Orecchiette

First of all the location in the historic Old Town is stunning. La Cecchina is a short walk from Bari's two cathedrals and its Norman castle. Secondly the food and service were excellent. I may go again!

Nice staff, nice place, delicious foods. The size of the pasta foods should be a little bit bigger if you eat only one course but if you eat a starter, a main course and a dessert, than it is OK. We loved the place! :)
