It's only about 3 minutes from the heart of town and definitely worth it. I had a fish carpaccio starter--tuna, salmon, and swordfish--that was beyond generous in portion and exactly as it should be, with mixed greens and a condensed balsamic on the side. The...More

We picked this restaurant for its awards and to celebrate Donald Trump's election. Everything was outstanding. The service was incredible and the food delicious. Many items are local delicacies.

In the center of Lecce, Osteria Spirits welcomes you with a pleasant atmosphere warm and cozy. An oasis of good food thanks to a kitchen that gives great satisfaction from a raw material of excellent quality, which makes it possible to prepare the tasty appetizers of vegetables in traditional dishes from Salento, and various homemade sweets. Excellent wine list and spirits.
