We ended up in this restaurant by coincidence, looking for something to eat for lunch on our trip through Polignano a Mare. On the first glance this place doesn't look like a master cheff's hideaway. Fortunately we were there by noon, so not many guests were there and had a prevelige to chose our sitting. We sat by the table... More

San Vito promises quite a lot but fails to deliver! On first glimpse you are tempted to stop and La Veranda seems the obvious place located as it is overlooking the little bay. But that's where the pleasure ends - with a very limited menu featuring standard fodder and not very exciting wines. In fairness, the place is more of... More

We had an absolutely superb lunch here - cannot recommend this place highly enough. Definitely worth venturing out of the main town of Polignano a Mare just to visit this restaurant. Really friendly and food was the best we've had. Fresh seafood and pasta cooked perfectly, with a beautiful view to match. We will definitely be coming back!

Stopped here by chance on the way to the airport from Polignano - had a lovely vegetarian ravioli and perfect orange juice. We loved it and would recommend!

The location looking out over the cove of San Vito is fantastic. They offer restaurant, cafe and take-away services. Their pastries are delicious so also recommend dropping by to pick up a few. We had dinner in the restaurant a couple of times and enjoyed both occasions. The service was good, wines reasonable and food varied. As with most restaurants... More

We have been to this restaurant before and had a good meal, maybe we were just unlucky this time, but it was a disappointing experience. We were given at a small cramped table to sit at and no menu to look through, just offered a choice of mussels and spaghetti and mixed sea food and spaghetti. We were given no... More

Enjoyed a lovely meal here upon our hotels recommendation. Great for seafood and fish, although we also had very tasty antipasti and pasta before. The desserts were excellent but many were already finished quite early on a Saturday night. The wines were good and typically priced for the area at 9-18€ a bottle. Friendly service with help in English when... More

There is no shortage of seafood restaurants on the coast near Polignano but this one has good food and a great view in the very pretty little cove at San Vito, where our best friend keeps his little fishing boat for his daily trips into the Adriatic to catch octopus. We'd eaten in a few places nearby, but found La... More

Located a little to the north of the picturesque Pontignano, this restaurant, warmly recommended by a number of people, actually exceeded my expectations - excellent fresh seafood starters, spaghetti alle vongole al dente (or rather, dentissimo, maybe just a teensy bit too hard for the non Italian palate) accompanied by a selection of the day's specials such as melanzane marinate,...

Lovely location, with views over the sea and the marina, just outside Polignano. Fresh seafood, friendly service.
