We enjoyed an excellent meal in this cosy restaurant. The service was attentive but unobtrusive. The menu was interesting and the food was cooked to perfection.

We love this restaurant with its fantastic ambience! The highlight of our meal was my ravioli filled with burrata with black truffles. Our starter with fresh burrata was also very good! Have a look at my photos. Would love to go again!

Hidden gem in the middle of the narrow streets in Osturni. Very close to the Osturni Cathedral. This restaurant is well known for being located in a cave, and for (of course) great pugliese cuisine. It’s also Michelin recommended, so we decided to check it...More
