We had a preset menu. It was expensive but food exceeded our expectations. Menu was in Italian only but chef promised what we wouldn't be disappointed and we were not. Two of the courses had wild mushrooms in it on our request. Pork cheeks were very tender and tasty. Restaurant located not on a main street and not easy to... More

Monte Sant'Angelo is a transit and very small town. Most of the people visit it for just one hour, which is more than enough to see all its sights. Hence all the restaurants here are focused on fast food - pizza, sipmle pasta etc. Even the Medioevo, which is cited in red Michelin guide. Li Jalantuumene (it's not a Finnish... More

A delightful meal had here and we were so sorry we hadn't booked to stay in one of the beautifully appointed bedrooms. We were beautifully entertained by our chef Gege. We will return.

We stayed at the B&B 3 nights at the beginning of January and had a lunch and 2 dinners here. We arrived just before 2pm and Gege offers us to have a lunch after checking into the rooms. As he felt lazy this day he made us a vegetable antipasto and a light pasta. Awesome, simple, full of flavors, to... More

Li Jalantuumene was recommended to us by the owner of our B&B in nearby Peschici. We went there for lunch and were greeted by chef/owner Gegé, a seemingly charming guy that is pretty much a one man show in the restaurant. He recommended a tasting menu which included a pasta course, meat course, and dessert. Every plate was perfectly prepared... More

We ate very well. Discovered the restaurant through citizens of Monte Sant Angelo. We were very happy and booked also for the next day. Two positive experiences. Good menu at atractive price. The restaurant is rather small but cosy. The funny chef Jayjay is very present during the whole meal. As we came two days , he created a different... More

The meals were expensive in relation to our other gourmet adventures. Perhaps JJ tries too hard! However we had a good time

We stayed at the b&b and had dinner here one night. Gege the chef and owner explained the menu to us and when we asked what he recommends he said he'd create something for us. We had two antipasti, two pastas, a meat course and a dessert. Some were created off menu just for us! All were exceptional, as was... More

After recommendation of the hotel we had high expectations. Terrace is nicely located on a square. Staff was welcoming when entering the restaurant. Dishes are mainly typical regional which typical ingredients from the region. Menu is only available in Italian but servant was kind enough to translate the options. Quality of food was good but not better then much of... More

This restaurant in Monte'SanAngelo is not what it seems. A modern well designed interior and a "chef dressed for the role", camoflage minute portions of bland uninteresting food at exorbitant prices for what is served. It's not "slow food" as claimed by the proprietor, but just "no food". For a splash of thick bland salty soup and 2 miniscule (yes... More
