Travelling in this part of puglia I had read about this restaurant which has been taken over in recent years by the son of the family that own it. Located in a beautifully located building overlooking the water in Santa Maria al bagno it is well worth a visit. We made a late reservation and we're lucky to get a... More

The restaurant is airy, light and attractively set out. It would be pleasant to eat on the terrace but it was raining when we went and we enjoyed our meal inside. Service is friendly and efficient and the food and wine of a good standard. Recommended for a sea food meal in a smart but relaxed atmosphere.

After trying many "good" ristorante from Bari to Lecce I'm pleased to stay this is a standout. Amazing tender and tasty tagliata di tonno (trust them, have it rare) and delicious delicate ricotta ravioli. Nothing was off. We had a strong impression they would do all well. We basically came from the beach which was ok, but it would be... More

Enjoyed our meal here. The location being on the sea front is great, you can enjoy your meal and watch the world go by. Service good and excellent English spoken. Mussels were delicious and the tuna main was delicious. Recommended

Best recommendation must be that we visited Art Nouveau 3 times during our week in Puglia. Make sure to try the seafood and specially the “Crudi di Pesce” (Raw fish) antipasti or seafood pasta – excellent! Reasonable prices

Good restaurant in a good situation to eat and watch the ongoing procession of people traffic walking by. Very good service - English spoken and English menu. Traditional Italian cooking - all the favourites are on the menu. Recommend.

My husband and I went to this restaurant twice for lunch during our stay in Puglia, as we were staying at a hotel about one hour away. It was already out of the main season so the village was quiet and peaceful and we heard mostly Italian. The restaurant is located in a beautiful building reminiscent of a bygone era.... More

Art Nouveau Restaurant is located in a wonderful villa of the late Eighteenth Century, a lovely art nouveau country house which represents the symbol of Santa Maria al Bagno, a small sea front town along the Salento West coast, one of the most charming locations in Puglia.
An essential as well as priceless place, where the art of cooking merges with the beauty of nature, in a sort of appealing and surprising mixture.
