Spongano is a lovely town and this place is right in the centre with tables in the main square. We ate here three times because it was very close to our accommodation. The menu is limited but the food was always good and it was also very good value. Friendly waiters and just a really nice atmosphere.

We sat in this small square on a quiet Friday night - and ate delightful regional food. The staff were very accommodating (of our fussy kids) and suggested dishes. Also worth noting that they speak reasonable English - however, this place doesn't feel at all like a tourist trap

Only negative - their house rose wine would have been better used as a salad dressing

We arrived in 'downtown Spongano' at lunchtime on a Sunday, fresh off the plane and eager to eat. Not many signs of life but the boys in the bar in the piazza called the owner and he opened just for us (8). His own wine, rustic but good and delicious antipasti (stewed peppers two ways, killer zucchini fritti...), followed by classic orecchiette with cimi di rape, made us very happy. Great start to a holiday, so we went back, to try antipasti (mostly vegetarian and more-ish) we didn't have the first time.

Very special opportunity to taste local specialities whilst sitting on the main square as night falls and watch as the village really comes to life! Wonderful.
