We dined here on the last night of our 10-day Puglian holiday and were very impressed. Firstly, it's an easy walk from the historic centre, following the ramparts of the castle.
On first impression, the place delivered on every level: cool decor, good ambient lighting, comfortable chairs, friendly yet professional service.
The food was easily the best we had on our holiday; local ingredients treated with pride and imagination to conjure up some excellent dishes that were still recognisably Puglian but not the same tired dishes you'd get everywhere else.
My boyfriend is vegetarian and was very well catered for - no pasta with tomato sauce in sight! Everything tasted fresh and of very high quality. The chef clearly cares about his work and his customers and popped out of the kitchen every now and again for a chat, which was very nice.
All in all, a great experience and very much recommended!

as they say, "Natura, tradizione e innovazione, esprimono la filosofia di RADICI."

there is a freshness that is apparent in every dish. traditional yet different. simple, elegant and delicious.

hard to decide which is more exciting, the pan seared octopus or saffron butter scampi ravioli. the entrecôte is beautifully grilled. the sgroppino, whilst not hand-made, is perfectly fine.

in a sea of very good restaurants, Radici is truly excellent.

warm and inviting dining room, lovely service. this is by no means whatsoever a tourist hangout. this is local !

We went to Radici a couple of times in the 2 weeks we spent in Puglia. It serves delicious, fresh dishes, in a cool setting. Staff are nice too. Bit punchy price wise, but worth it. You probably need to book for dinner.

We were a group of 7 girlfreinds on a dinner.
The food was excellent. The presentation eas beautiful. The chef got out of the kitchen to speak with us and to fulfil all our requests.
Very recommended.
