Description: Osteria Monacelle: a place that is home to the art of cooking Our Osteria is in the heart of Ostuni, close to the pre-classical civilization museum. Tradition, culture and passion for good food are mixed into our original dishes, rich of antique flavors, memories and history. We only cook local food, using original ingredients from the Apulian agriculture and cuisine, because we strongly believe in the quality and in the authenticity of our beautiful region.

Fabulous dinner on a busy, busy night. Food was excellent. Well flavoured, of excellent quality and certainly held to the Pugliese "Cucina Povera". Would absolutely recommend for a great food experience in Ostuni!

Italian food at it's real core. Went for dinner and enjoyed the complexity of taste in simplicity of fresh ingredients. Fine dining as concerns food.

Me and my partner had a great dinner on the steps next to the restaurant. The brisket was nicely cooked, and the lamb with artichokes was even better. The dessert was a perfect finisher. Only the waiter could have been a tad more friendly – we wrote it off as Italian style.

We had a pasta lunch at this place. It was shortly before closing time for lunch on a hot day and we picked it for being in the deepest shade (narrow steps side street in the core of the old town). The pasta was home made and amazingly tasty: one pappardelle-like with octopus in a tomato sauce and the other ravioli with a local ricotta cheese. We took a glass each of their table rose wine and shared a pancake type dessert. Everything was beautifully made and charmingly served. Probably the best lunch on our two week trip around Puglia.

We sat in what must have been the overflow to the main restaurant, it was brightly lit and right next to the kitchen. The acoustics weren't great and once it filled up it was very noisy. Tables for two outside looked a better bet as did the main restaurant (first door on the right)

We ate a taster starter which was really nice, huge and enjoyed by all. Mains were not so great, the slow-cooked brisket lacked flavour, although the cut was nice- and the lamb with artichoke wasn't particularly good either, very fatty (I know, it's lamb!) and grey.
