This is located in a gorgeous bay. The balcony. Looks onto a partial sea view. You can choose your fish at the door and they will cook it for you. 2 of the family members were not in the mood for fish. Bad move, the melanzane was average and the steak was overcooked. All in all good meal and we could have chosen better. Stick to the fish. Prices are fair.

We stopped by at lunch time and sat outside, we had a very good surprise as everything was delicious and fresh. We had insalata di mare, grilled swordfish, paccheri ai frutti di mare and mixed salads. The dishes were cooked simply but with quality ingredients, olive oil and perfect service. Real value for money.

This place is an invaluable discovery... A family business preserving the culinary secrets of this far end of Italy... and serving the finest seafood for very affordable prices. Not to miss!

We are two weeks into a holiday in the Salento, and are regularly drawn to Castro and Castro Marina. We enjoyed a leisurely lunch after noticing that there was a table available outside. The locals eat in air-conditioned comfort inside, but we were very happy sitting adjacent to the road, with a glimpse of the sea. The service was very attentive. As a party of eight we each had something different and each of us praised their own choice, something that had not happened before and led us to vote Ristorante Underground as our best dining experience of the holiday.

We ha d really good lunch there, a huge dish of mussels and clams in a tomato sauce between us for a starter (Saute di cozze e vongole), followed by a really good pasta dish and a generous plate of fried fish and seafood, all for €40 in total, without wine (just water), although they had a house wine for €7 per litre as well. Recommended.
