Perfectly pleasant little restaurant tucked away in Lecce. Food very good, staff courteous and attentive without being "in your face". The décor is, I would say, plain and unobtrusive - just right for this type of restaurant. It's not opulent and plush but that would detract focus from the food which is, after all, the main star of the show.

We loved our meal here! It is different, in the best way. The food and the service were absolutely top. We live in Rome and it's hard to find anything equal.

Ate here at the suggestion of our hotel who made a booking for us (probably essential). The food was simply superb - quality ingredients allowed to speak for themselves with sympathetic preparation and cooking. A local white wine was also recommended which was excellent value for money and really enjoyable. My husband and I both had a special of the... More

WE were extremely happy with this dinner. Excellent in everyway....pasta, antipasto, bread, fish etc. All the dishes were authentic pugliese dishes and freshly prepared. A little hard to find but worth it. In center but down an alley. Nice selection of wines and not overpriced at all.

this small restaurant in a tiny piazza near the main square in lecce is great place to have real italian food and wine. it has an exceptional wine selection but you can also do well with their very good inexpensive house wine. the food is genuine local based italian food, creatively prepared, such as the spaghetti with black olive puree...

Let's start with the location, a romantic little piazza in the center of historic Lecce, where a very sympathetic and competent young woman speaking well french and english guided us through the menu. We were more than happy with the food and wine, the cooking was by far the best we had in Lecce and its surroundings where dishes can... More

Great recommendation by our hotel, this restaurant serves quality food simply prepared in a small square. Most tables are outside in the square only serves dinner and booking recommended (several diners potential diners were turned ways it was full). Great value for money thoroughly recommened.

Lovely to sit outside on our last evening in Lecce. Excellent service, a much better wine list than most places in town and tasty food. Make sure you ask for a table in the main square not at the back which is dull.
