We had a cold cuts combo between us for starters and a pasta dish each for main. All delicious. Also the best waiter in Lecce. Helpful, friendly and full of knowledge. Highly recommended.

Excellent food in this popular restaurant. Great wine list. Our only criticism is that the service was a little slow even by Lecce standards
