Elegant setting, delicious and refined cooking that manages to avoid being pretentious. Very reasonable prices for the experience.

Directions: Just up from the Cathedral

Fabulous dinner here. The room is lovely, with pale colors and comfortable seats. Very small, you must make a reservation. The menu is very varied, with some unusual dishes. The owner speaks excellent English and is very helpful with the food and wines.

We began by sharing an antipasto special, eggplant stuffed with a light vegetable mousse. I've eaten a lot of eggplant, and this was one of the best eggplant dishes I've had. We then shared a primo of a rolled, baked pasta filled with veal and vegetables, also delicious and delicate. I had a secondi of grilled baby lambchops, and my husband had scallops cooked with their roe in a balsamic glaze, served over braised greens. Both excellent. We finished by sharing a torta della nona, which was outstanding, crunchy hazelnuts with dark chocolate. With a bottle of the best wine we had in Puglia, the bill was 86 euros.
