Tàranto: Unnamed Trattoria

Largo S Nicola

Reviewed by: Jonathan from UK, review #1162

When: 2004

Brilliant value, very informal, full of locals.

Directions: Next door to FIDAS, the federation of blood donors, and just around the corner from the fish market in the centro storico. See photo!

Just round the corner from the fish market: encouragingly full of locals, with an astoundingly cheap menu. Very simple: plastic tables – and very welcoming. Antipasti were all €3, as were the primi. I had cozze alla marinara (small but v tasty mussels; the marinara a good mix of excellent oil, salty water, garlic & parsley). P had tubettini fagioli e cozze (basically a pasta & fagioli with a few mussels thrown in). Secondi were all €5: we both had frittura mista. Wonderfully light and ungreasy (though still nicely oily): really just calamari rings & tentacles and gamberini, but utterly fresh and delicious. Water, a litre of house white (€2!), and a limoncello. No bill: one of the cheerful waiters came up at the end, looked thoughtfully at the table, and pronounced ‘Venti’. So: €20.
