The only reason why i can't give the maximum score is the short menu. However, the place it's ideal for a relaxing dinner (no hurry) in a very confortable and welcoming environment. Food and meat is very good.

3 generations of the owner family are preparing, cooking in the open kitchen and serving the menu. The broad choice of typical, regional starters and also the grilled meat were excellent ! Thank you for the nice and friendly service, I have had a great evening !

I made my way to a warm and cozy restaurant called Casa San Giacomo. Inside are curved walls made of creme stone, wooden stairs that lead to a higher loft-like seating area, a cave-like room down lower where you can watch the chef cook on the stove with a full view of all the fresh ingredients she is using. All... More

We came across this place by accident and we're attracted by the warmth as we stepped down into the restaurant. We had a front seat viewing the dinners being cooked. All had their role and worked well together. We enjoyed our meal very much but slightly disappointed that the 5 or pasta dishes were down to only two on the... More

Was in Ostuni for a week in September, and stumbled across this restaurant. A very welcoming place, friendly staff and the most amazing home cooked food by 3 generations in the kitchen. The mixed starter for 2 was the highlight!

An authentic Italian treat. The food is prepared in an open kitchen by three generations of the family. The food was delicious and the service was friendly and attentive. The tiramisu was excellent.

Had a great dinner in Ostuni at this tiny restaurant close to the cathedral. Grandmama and daughter cook in front of you and son runs the front of the house. Very good quality meal and grandmama comes to see if meal was ok! Had the cavatelli to start and lamb chops are excellent though small. The intimate inside makes you... More

Upon entering the restaurant we were led to a table that seemed like it could fit 10 people and yet there were only four of us. The distance between us (parents) and the kids on the other side of the table was huge. We were barely able to have a conversation. As we ordered drinks we were told that the... More

In this very atmospheric restaurant you will feel at home, due to its friendly staff and corny-yet-cute setting. Prices are reasonable, and one can choose from several local specialties. The food is nice, and the portions ample. Be sure to make a reservation, many people have read the excellent reviews on tripadvisor!
