From the antipasti to the digestif, each entree was unique in and of itself using local ingredients. The owner's passion for the flavors he presented and... More

My girlfriend and I recently stumbled upon this restaurant while looking for a place to eat in Bernalda and were pleasantly surprised. The dishes are incredibly well thought out, and we were surprised with two extra courses for free at the beginning and the end of the meal. An extensive wine list rounds off the experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed the lamb and veal dishes. They were just as though we were eating at the farm itself. And the restaurant was full of locals who all seemed to know the owners. Highly recommend a visit.

Luckily, the receptionist at San Teodoro Nuovo agriturismo, where we were staying, recommended that we try this place and she called to make reservations for us. One of the best meals I have ever had. The food was incredible and the service was wonderful. The two of us had the Locandiera tasting menu: a series of 6 little appetizers, two... More

FANTASTIC- Beautiful plates, innovative cuisine and lovely people. Each course was gorgeous and delicious. This small restaurant is in a lovely town called Bernalda (Francis Ford Coppola has a villa here). Very easy to find and lots of parking on main street. You ring a bell to get into the restaurant and from start to finish an unbelievable meal.

This is the place to to go to experience local cuisine and challenge your self to different and unexpected dishes. The meat, fish and vegetables are fresh and cooked to perfection. The wine selection local and otherwise is well selected. However have a recommended an local Aglianico. Reservations are a must in this mother and son establishment.
