Originally went here to get out of a freak thunderstorm. Staff were very friendly and the seafood was of an average standard. caters for the tourist.

very average tourist restaurant, and we were tricked into ordering the grilled red prawns which gave us a nasty surprise when the bill appeared. Best avoided.

Looked fine for Sunday lunch with lots of locals. Linguini with clams was greasy and horrible, with four nasty tasting clams. Best avoided. Swordfish passable.

Food is not too bad but way overpriced. Problem is you get tricked: "sir we have excellent sarago and it is small only 300 gr." No price given. Then you find yourself to pay €24 (4×€6) for a fish the size of a stamp and certainly not 400 gr. Prove it... Couvert, drinks; all much more expensive than the others... More

First of all, the menu was extremely limited - basically there was only three types of fish to choose from and the seafood itself was not fresh and smelled very bad. Secondly, the service was really slow and the staff were completely unable to manage what is such a small restaurant with a small menu. But worst of all... The... More

We were grateful that we hadn't seen the many poor reviews entered close together in August on tripadvisor by Italian reviewers, otherwise we might not have given this restaurant a try. Perhaps the restaurant had been struggling with peak summer demand. We on the other hand had a most enjoyable meal from the mainly fish menu. The spaghetti with vongole... More

This restaurant has a lovely position on the front in Otranto with scenic views over town and the sea. We ate lunch of melon and prosciotto followed by scampi spaghetti. All was absolutely delicious washed down with local wine. Service was good and this is a good value choice in central Otranto.

A nice location, there wre three in our party. We each ordered a different pasta, the waiter told 2 of us to order the same thing as there were only 2 pans for the chef to cook with and if we ordered three things, they would not all be ready at the same time! The food was O.K., nothing special.

Restaurant with excellent view on the harbour, but secluded to be protected from the wind. Diner itself was OK but nothing special.
