One of the best row fish plates of My Life. Waiters were polite and friendly, amazing view, even from the the main room. I guess the upstairs terrace was even better. We had pasta as a main course and it was perfect, I would definitely...recommend it. Honest price, and super fast service.More

The service is very slow, even in a Monday evening. We had fish & seafood for starters, primo & secondo and they were not even close to average, I don't understand the good reviews it has on TA.

We dines in this restaurant three times on our visit to Puerto Cesareo. It is mostly testament to the quality of other establishments in the area. Having said that, Grecale is good for what it is, a reasonably prices seafood restaurant. Seafood is fresh, there...is good variety of dishes and it is children friendly. All in all a nice place.More

Lovely place for a civilized Sunday lunch. This dining room is a clean modern space with a touch of retro, bright & clean with a big slab of glass looking out to the port where little boats rock in the silvery sea. A fresh fish...cart is deployed to the table, replete with several local varieties and a huge king crab. The elegant elderly ladies next to us ordered up the crab, drank a bottle of white and finished it off gelato affogato al cafe. Go ladies! What we ate: a lovely homemade ravioli "da Grecale" stuffed with shrimp and salmon, a nice fresh mixed salad, simple mussels which were the large type, plumb, soft, juicy and flavorful. We washed it down with a nice crisp white wine followed by sorbetto al limone and cafe, both a cut above the norm. We lingered and watched all the wonderful food exiting the kitchen including a very dramatic affair of puff pastry, "stuffed" with a tagliolini of mussels, tiny shrimp and large shrimp, buried underneath the large lasagne sized presentation: the waiter cut off the corners of this dish and plated it, then took the entire center part of the pastry and rolled it back off to the side. The tagliolini were revealed with all the juicy seafood and was added to the puff pastry corners. Stunning! Next time. Also looking good what a fully salt crusted whole fish that when broken open, waived our way. Service was pleasant, semi formal and laid back. Loved it here.More

Our local tour guide introduced us to this restaurant - he went to university with the owner. We are so thankful that we found Grecale. After a month's stay in Lecce we visited many seafood restaurants, however Grecale has got to be one of the...best! Be sure to have them show you the fresh catch of the day. They have an inspired menu that prepares the fresh fish in a variety of interesting and delicious ways. Great wine list too. And don't forget the wonderful deserts. Highly recommend this place!More
