This ristorante is a little jewel in a town already famed for its gastronomy. Many eateries in Puglia serve excellent food with fresh local ingredients but this place takes it up a notch in terms of imagination, creativity and flavour. The 7-dish antpasti is a must for starters, including such delights as salami, fig and cheese bruschetta drizzled with a syrupy balsamic, smoked pork topped with pickled cabbage and fruits of the forest, light and crispy eggplant balls in tomato sauce, fried chicken in sweet and sour sauce, zucchini and cheese soufflé, fava beans and bacon with crispy toast, and local ricotta with honey, nuts and figs. After that there are wonderful pasta dishes (we had the pesto pistacchio and the mushroom and truffle tagliattelli - both were superb). Unfortunately by this stage we were too full to be able to contemplate ordering more, but suffice to say the mains looked similarly tempting. Service was similarly excellent. Divine dining - a must if you're in San Michele Salentino.

Our family of five ate here for our final night of our holiday. It was a truly wonderful meal in every respect. My husband thought it was the best pasta dish he'd ever eaten. I have to say, my veal was probably up there as one of the best also. All in all, incredible value for money and one of our best meals ( if not the best ) of our holiday.

This restaurant in a quiet unassuming street just from the center is a true delight.
The Location, decor inside (with the ability to eat outside) and service from the professional team are all top notch however it is the food that really shines. We have visited for the last 2 years maybe 10 times and never had anything other than a beautiful meal, really great flavors well cooked and presented. Many restaurants you will get the antipasti to be served the same tourist tat however here it is dish after dish of great and inventive food, last years Truffle souffle was quite simply one of the best dishes I have ever had and I have dined in many Michelin 1-3 star establishments and I would rate this better than most 1 star establishments I have eaten in. Give it a try if you are in the area, you will not be disappointed.

This restaurant was a suggestion from the owner of our holiday villa. The antipasti were delightful. One even better than the other (7 in total). You can also ask for a 'uno per due'. Main courses were also first class. Top notch price-quality and very personal service with a smile!

Yes I agree with everyone here. The antipasti are really lovely, as is everything else, the wine and the service. We ate here twice in four days and thoroughly enjoyed every bite. Thank you.
