I was there for a business dinner. The food was good but not unforgettable and the quantity was a joke. I prefer places where the cook doesn't use the electronic scale and the microscope to prepare the courses. Is this a restaurant or a jewelry? When we left, we weighed less than when we got in because our money weighed... More

Beautifully presented food. Portions generally small. Octopus as a starter was good but have tasted better. Red risotto, interesting and very tasty, but a little too al dente for my liking. Wine chosen by the hostess was excellent and dessert really yummy! Place needs better heating though - the room is large and very draughty!

We tried twice to eat there: 4 weeks ago, a Saturday around 8.30pm, we rang many times (yes you have to ring!!!!). I looked through the narrow window next to the door: there was nobody in the first room, but people were standing behind, in what I suppose to be the second room or a garden. After a while, nobody...

Nothing wrong with this one! Just ring the bell, be welcome inside by the friendly staff, and enjoy the gourmet ride.

What an incredible restaurant and an amazing experience. We were accommodated with warm hospitality in spite of failing to make a reservation in advance. The service was exceptional, the food and wine were equivalent. There is no better restaurant in Bari. Highly recommended.

I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and can only confirm what others have already written. The food was fabulous! While we were there the electricity went out twice in that section of Bari. They brought over some candles and carried on, which added to the experience. The restaurant is just a half black from the Palace Hotel. You can... More
