Quite honestly, the best place to eat around Lecce. The quality is superb and the price is super reasonable. Nice location and kind staff.

We ate dinner at this restaurant. Pasta primi, then Tagliata di Manzo and Tagliata al tunno for secondi, mixed salad, red wine and tartufo ice cream desert. The restaurant was very busy with large group of diners and the waiting staff seemed to struggle and...were not attentive. However the food was good quality and tasty.More

Beautiful food. Great service given by a young lady called Paula who helped us with our translation into English. The chef at this restaurant was very accommodating, especially for someone who dosent eat fish. Despite specialising in fish.

I have traveled a lot and met so many places; the culinary experience made at Corte Celestini was unique in its kind. I rarely remember the contents of a meal, but in the case of Corte Celestini, with the dears Renato and Antonella, it was...a dip in refinement and willingness to offer the best of the land and the sea. I hope that many can achieve a similar experience. Ad maiora semper even if it is difficult in this case. Greetings to all the staff.More

It's the second time we've been there (Once per summer) We enjoy it because it is situated in a very small village but with great food, amazing place and very cheap.

Very generous servings and really good local food. The restaurant was quiet when we arrived at 8.30pm but was packed within no time by locals, so a great atmosphere. We were given free taster deserts to share and liqueur bottles left for us to help...ourselves!!More

There is a large fireplace that is very enjoyable. The food is pretty good but nothing too memorable. I will grant it is probably the best restaurant in town but I wouldn't necessarily choose to go back.

Very good restaurant. We had a delicious fresh fish, and excellent frutti di mare pasta. Desserts are all very good. Bin here twice and never disappointed! Next to that, it is not expensive. Good value for little money 👍

With unimaginable low prices for a restaurant of this level you can eat very special dishes following the culinary traditions of southern Puglia with innovative touch of modern cuisine. One of the best restaurants around Lecce.
