We happened on this place when walking round the ancient centre of Lecce and decided to give it a try, obviously a family run place, we were warmly welcomed and given very good recommendations on food and wine. I was shocked when I later looked...More

In order to eat really well here you have to just go with the dish of the day, especially when it comes to fish otherwise you'll end eating frozen food.

We had a good conversation with the waiter, the food was really good. He gave us some advice on local specialties which were excellent.

Pasta was good but second dish calamari and shrimps were frozen... For a local advertising typical Italian food that was disappointing. They have an ad in the door against TripAdvisor so I guess they don't get many good reviews. Service was OK.

On a side street near the amphitheatre we stumbled across the little gem. The menu was local Salento cuisine (translated). The interior was pure Puglia (outside seating also available, but as this was Lecce festival season, a bit to bustling for our taste). The food...More

Locanda Rivoli begins with a proprietor who seems to scowl at more than some of his clients as they enter. The impression is if he doesn't know you personally, you are of lesser value to his interests. This attitude is reflected in the uninspired fare...More

Our first choice for dinner as recommended to us turned out to be the sandwich shop "Come Vuoi" on the Duomo Square, which was not what we wanted. We walked nearby and found Locanda Rivoli on via A. Imperatore. It was full with a tourist...More

We were there for dinner one evening, without reservations. The waiter was very attentive and helped us select local dishes, including a bruschetta made with a bit of ricotta made from goat's milk, not cow's milk. Very pungent but very tasty! The fish in salt...More
