We had a delicious dinner here. The place is tucked away on a random street. The red prawns from Gallipoli were superb! As was the risotto. The staff were very nice. We thought the chef was a genius!

Tucked away on a back street in the rather scruffy town of Veglie, we came across this restaurant. Don't be daunted by the screeching of parrots across the road (although this was rather annoying after 10 minutes) as the food and service here are great. We can only speak for the pizzas but these were fast, hot and tasty.

In this restaurant , hidden somewhere in the town of Veglie ( not easy to found even with navigation) , two brothers are , now for oer 20 years , exploiting and expressing their love for great ingredients , so be ready for it in whatever you might order
Fish and seashells of good quality, amazing bread , and one of the best pizza I had in my life, perfectly cooked and super delicious . Wine list that needs some updates , the first two wines I picked up , they were sold out ...but is quite wide and covering main italian regions plus some good champagnes
Lovely dessert , again home made
The waitress in the room could be friendlier and more welcoming in approach as she gives the impression that she is the one that decides and that "pushy" sensation is not always making feel people at ease .
Service in our case was so quick that in 45 minutes we got served five dishes ...and that is too faast to enjoy a dinner , at least for me
Prices on the mid high range .
The pizza alone is worth the trip

This restaurant is hard to find if you do not have a map or GPS, so check before you go. Even if the waitresses hardly spoke any English they do their best to try to understand you. The restaurant has a very nice decently priced wine list with wines from Puglia and other parts of Italy. We had risotto (nice), the classic caprese salad (ok), fish (ok). We were not as happy with the food as we thought we would be. It was not bad, more like average, and we missed the little extra, the things that make you return to a restaurant.
