Our first night in Puglia and we were fortunate to eat at this local trattoria. Good food and wine and an atmosphere like having dinner with a large Italian family. It was a wonderful start to our 10 days in Puglia.

You get in at 8pm it is empty, you get out at 10pm, it is full. People are very nice, the food is good and really not exepensive compare to Lecce. You can eat for 2 for 25€!!!

In all my time in Italy this is definitely the best food I have eaten. Francesco is a wonderful host and made me feel very welcome even with my very limited Italian. I have visited twice already and will visit again. Buon appetito.

Came here with my partners family. We all had pizza and they were all excellent. The only small complaint was the mistakes which were rectified immediately and apologised for. All in all a great yet simple place for an excellent pizza. Highly recommended!

Simple restaurant with great food and service. The owner is fantastic and made us feel very welcome. We were lucky to be accompanied with an Italian family of four generations celebrating a Birthday. Over 25 people, grandparents and cousins. Food was great!

The name says it all. "Li Spilusi" in Salento dialect are the ones who always want to satisfy "lu spilu" (the whim). A welcoming and modern aesthetics, but in the old kitchen where you work to keep alive the culinary traditions of Salento (Puglia).
