A Memorable, Spectacular Meal in Selva di Fasano

Directions: From Fasano follow the signs to Selva di Fasano. Follow signs to the hotel/restaurant.

We were introduced to Aldo and Ana at La Silvana by friends and have come to love the restaurant. Aldo is the quintessential proponent of all things Puglian and knows the best sources for local products available, and that's all he serves.

Aldo runs the front room with the help of his son Davide, and his wife Ana runs the kitchen with the help of her mother. The antipasti, a specialty in Puglia, are excellent, creative and extensive, with a focus on the seasons and the best of the region. The pasta is hand made and the meat and seafood are first rate and well prepared. The family takes great pride in the quality of the food and service and the care and attention to all aspects of the experience are apparent.

Aldo maintains an extensive wine collection, with a focus on the wines of Puglia and offers a sampling of after dinner liquore that are made at the restaurant. Put yourself in his hands and you won't regret it. We've eaten here several times over the past 2 years and have never been disappointed. This is a remarkable restaurant and well worth the drive. Cost 30 - 50 euros per person (depending on whether you go for the full antipasto, primo and secondo which is a ton of food) including copious amounts of wine and desert. I can't rate it highly enough.
