Great selection of pasta dishes and plenty of locally sourced specialities. An impressive wine list, I wanted a half bottle and they let me have it from a full one. Nice service too

A very nice restaurant, not so big, but warm and charming. Speciality on local cuisine. The chef antipasti is a must try!

I stopped in here for lunch one day while in Lecce and exploring the historical center. The service was fast but unobtrusive and the food was delectable! Traditional Puglian orecchiette pasta al grano arso (now it is a delicacy, but in medieval times, this was left to the poorest of the poor) - the burned grains of wheat after the... More

We picked this restaurant for its awards and to celebrate Donald Trump's election. Everything was outstanding. The service was incredible and the food delicious. Many items are local delicacies.

Visiting Lecce you need a recommendation to go for Dinner. Our Masseria recommended this place and we are not disappointed. As after season tourists we were not dressed that appropriate, but we were allowed access , thanks. The place has a very nice ambiance and we thought that this would be our most expensive evening out during our holiday. What... More

We went to this restaurant with about 10 people for dinner. The restaurant didn't seem that busy when we went in. We ordered on arrival and waited and waited and waited for our entre to come out. After around 1.5 hours it arrived and not that good to speak off. We then waited a further 1.5 hours for our main... More

Recommended by hotel this restaurant has no outside tables but the interior is well decorated and inviting but split into 2 dining rooms. Menu has many local specialities as antipasto which we didn't have but many of the (mostly italian) other diners did they looked very good. Food good quality but not outstanding. probably one of the more expensive restaurants... More

In past years, until last year, we've enjoyed eating at this restaurant when taking annual trips to our second home in Lecce. Last year we were struck by how molasses slow their service had become. This year, and only because it was a place I could limp to with my bad back, we decided to give it one more shot.... More

Went with a group of 23 for dinner, and they succeeded in serving us up a delightful pre-agreed meal with matching wines without any of the problems you often get with serving hat many altogether. They also coped well with the few variations needed for allergies etc.

We went to this restaurant based on the guide book recommendation and it was our first disappointment in Puglia's restaurants. Service is the weakest part of the restaurant, when we went there table next to us was not cleaned after the guests and when we left - it still stayed not clean with dirty glasses.

In the center of Lecce, Osteria Spirits welcomes you with a pleasant atmosphere warm and cozy. An oasis of good food thanks to a kitchen that gives great satisfaction from a raw material of excellent quality, which makes it possible to prepare the tasty appetizers of vegetables in traditional dishes from Salento, and various homemade sweets. Excellent wine list and spirits.
