Absolutely exquisite food! Also our waiter was a lovely young man who would translate from Italian to English (I'm stupid & can't speak Italian & my boyfriend is Italian), so the waiter would explain all the details of the food & wine in both languages and his knowledge was outstanding! I was blown away by the service!

This is a rather small place with a small but excellent menu. The prawns are excellent in flavor and cooking, as are the small lobsters. The salted fish of the day is superb, not caked in salt but heavily seasoned. the result is a great test. We were there for lunch and sat and enjoyed the passer bus and pleasantness... More

This restaurant offers a great variety of seafood, fresh and elaborate in preparation and taste. We had one of the best antipasti I've ever eaten in this restaurant, a set of "acciugas" - try and experience how fresh anchovies could taste!

We had lunch here on a day still remarkably hot and sunny for October, thankful for the canopy outside the restaurant. Beautifully presented and delicious food - the anchovies with marmalade stood out. Service excellent and the Miles Davis backing music much appreciated.

We came here on the recommendations of Trip Advisor. It is up there as one of the memorable meals on our 2 month holiday through Europe. The food was traditional but inventive. I liked the conviction of their menu by stating up front that they would not change anything or make substitutions. Good for them! I had the raw fish... More

In the touristic Centre of Otranto. Found it in the guide Michelin. Very unusual as very crossover / fusion cuisine - ambitious, lacking a bit of Raffinesse here and there but bottomline : almost there. Good wine menu, nice decor, sure they will get there. Go !

We had a delicious lunch at L'altro Baffo last week on our final day in Italy. We enjoyed the crudo to start, followed by salt-roasted sea bream and finally a cheese plate. We washed it all down with a local rose. The bill came to about $120 USD. The crudo was beautifully plated, fresh, and sweet. We particularly enjoyed the... More

Small but perfectly formed fine dining restaurant close to the castle in Otranto Fantastic food, excellent staff (especially the Maitre D), small but decent and reasonably priced wine list Cannot recommend this place enough The panna cotta and mojito sorbet (not together) were to die for!
