Let me start by saying this is the first time I have felt so compelled to write a review. The food was, to say one positive thing," fresh". My wife and I found all aspects of the meal from start to finish to be far below Apulia standards. "Absolutely poorly prepared and poorly presented in every way." We were expecting... More

Welcoming host and family present traditional dishes in a centrally located trattoria. Delicious variety of local food and wines. Perfectly situated in the heart of the city. Walked to dinner through the picturesque streets of Altamura. Loved this place.

A locally sourced, wonderful restaurant. Not the best food I have tasted, but certainly the best wine (the proprietor proudly informed me that HE made it!) and the best meal I have had for a long time. A meal for two with an excellent mixed meat starter, very nice seconds, a wonderful home-made ice cream (lemon flavour with strawberry coulis)... More

Living abroad in the Netherlands, with my roots in via Leopoldo Laudati, Altamura, this was an experience never to forget. Coming home. You eat at Cenzino like at your family's house. Peppino, a true chef, picks your dinner. He is proud of every dish, and he wants to know what you think. And every dish, from starters like almond stuffed... More

For our second last evening in Altamura we choose this trattoria. We entered and had to leave the second door open. No jackets on the chairs. The waiter explained us that we could not choose to order. The choice is made by the house. Everything would be fresh and well prepared but no menu option. The wine was a home... More

This place offers genuine food at a good price. All freshly cut meats are provided by the proud owner 's mum from the butcher shop just round the corner. No need to have a look at the menus since various Italian anti pasti are served. A big thanks goes to the owner for his hospitality.

Absolutely delicious, authentic food from the city of Altamura. Our waiter was the actual owner of Cenzino's and his service was impeccable. We tasted a variety of dishes, our favourites being the Brasciole, the Sausage with Oranges, and the Gnumaridd. Altamura is a beautiful city with an incredibly rich culture, pride and passion for food. Cenzino's captures these qualities entirely.... More
