Our B&B host recommended that Osteria and we followed the advice. And while we can't complain about the food, we don't have many good words about the service. First we waited 10 minutes until someone cleaned the table we were seated at. Then it took some time for the food to arrive. My ravioli with pear and cheese were very... More

We were recommended this place by our hotel. The restaurant is a cosy underground cave. We were greeted by an unfriendly waitress and given 2 different menu's. Every question we asked was just too much. Another waitress came to take our order. Unfortunately she was even grumpier than the first one and completely uninterested. The food however was absolutely delicious.... More

we were also with a Riviera Group so in fairness it was a large group to cater for and I hadn't picked from the menu. Antipasti was ok, Pasta ok, the fish main course really good and the dessert unmemorable. Service was quick (in a good way) but the waitress was really grumpy throughout!

We were recommended to go to this restuarant by Filippo, our host at Centro Storrico, and enjoyed the experience so much that we returned on another two evenings. The restuarant spreads through 3 rooms, and serves local specialities. The food is delicious. We especially enjoyed the shared antipasto platter, almost a meal in itself, the spaghetti with oil, chilli and... More

Stumbled on this restaurant while walking and came back later and got in no problems. Our experience was excellent. Had a choice of tables and even though there was very large party the service was efficient. Then of course the food was excellent as well. We were very impressed and would recommend to anyone to visit for an enjoyable meal.... More

It was our lucky day when we chanced upon this excellent restaurant. The staff was very welcoming and gracious. Our meals were beautifully prepared. In fact, my husband's seafood risotto was one of the most generous he's ever had. My traditional fare was equally as good. My only suggestion to the staff: Someone needs to be keeping a keener eye...

This is a very friendly place, we were a large group and the staff coped so well. The choice of wines were good and the food excellent. Good atmosphere, I witnessed other people being advised to return later for a table and when they did they were soon accommodated.

A hotel recommendation that worked out well, very close to Patria Palace. A smallish menu, mostly traditional Puglian dishes. After we walked in, a group of maybe 25 locals came in, so the waitress was eager to get our order in. The food was good, a mixed salad, nicer than most places as it has fresh boccacini, a pasta and... More
