Description: La claque is exactly what we have been looking for. A few tables, a fresh, new environment, in which you can feel truly at home, be lured from our little attention, and be happy:Food is happiness, happiness to discover the value and taste of our products best treated by the care and knowledge of the chef Beppe Ciavarelli, born in Bari "adopted" from Molfetta.

Dissapointing - I went there to have a great dinner and got out having ONE mushroom and a glass of wine.
Went there three people - nice dining room, good service.
Being vegetarian I tried to order something, but they didn't have canoli and "all fungus", so the only option was spaghetti (which I don't like). I insisted to get the risotto without the ragu or to make for me another type of risotto - it wasn't possible. The lady returned and said that they could make the mushrooms for me (the "all fungus' which initially was not available). I said ok and I got an only one big mushroom (!!!) which seemed to be a bit fried - nothing special! my friends ordered fish - nothing to be mentioned, nothing extraordinary, we had much better ones. When we tried to order the desert they didn't have pannacotta and had an only one tortino (a kind of lava cake) which was very strange as I understood they prepared it on the spot )not enough ingredients in the kitchen?), We were offered ice cream which we refused.
The waitress apologized saying that usually people ask for the tasting menu, but unfortunately they didn't have one for vegetarians. Also she said that the menu would be changed and that was the reason why some of the dishes were "out of stock".
No opportunity to order wine by glass - we ordered the one recommended by the waitress, a bio negroamaro which was average.
Not worth the visit, Sorry! The chef was there but didn't bother to come and offer us an alternative dish as he couldn't deliver what we ordered from the menu. Arrogant, Pretentious, but very thin delivery!

2nd time i have been here together with my close friend (look alike of mr Andrea Barton :-) who is the local "Boss" of Molfetta :-) very passionate people with cool refreshing flavors. Making traditional food exceptional! If you are in the Puglia area its worth visting these friendly people. High cuisine, affordable in a very nice environment where they care for detail! Yes you can order from the menu, or just ask the chef to suprize you with primi, secondi and dessert! Fabulous.

Clean and fresh dining room.
We ordered a five course menu.
No oppurtunity to order wine by glass. That's bad. One wine with five courses? Is this the stone age?
The starter with octopus was bad. Way to oily. The ink flavour was off and tasted dirty.
The wine was fine as such and worked fine with scallops. A fine dish.
Nice bread.
Salmon sashimi was fine and fresh. Even though the wasabi tasted like a powder version.. Would have loved a Riesling to go..
Primi piatti was pappardelle with local mini crabs. Underwhelming. Meat was dirty. Wold have loved a chardonnay, a verdicchio or a rosé..
Secondi was perfectly cooked white fish and padrones.. nothing else. Just white fish meat without seasoning and bitter padrones. Strange combo. Don't mention the wine situation.
Regarding service, the waitress said no more than yes. Well..
Dessert was ok.
Not worth the money. Sorry. Pretentious ( wich is good ) intentions but thin delivery on every front.

Went there for a dinner out with friends, the staff is friendly and knowledge, the quality of the food is second to none due to skilled chefs and local sources. They try to match flavours that you wouldn't think of (see cheese with seafood ect) but not always making it right. The buzz would be better with dimmed lights and candles on the tables, bit disappointed when we asked for the bill and the waitress cleared the whole table including water glasses and water, we had to ask for them to be brought back to the table, chop sticks are also not available and having sushi without them was a bit odd. Overall a good experience and something that Molfetta was missing big time due to the cuisine this restaurant offers

Nice restaurant in the historic district. If you are looking for fancy, this is your place in Molfetta. Not bad prices. Food was good, but very small portions. Waitstaff was very good.
