Tormaresca Vino & Cucina is a casual, social dine-in experience featuring Italian comfort staples native to the region. The menu showcases simple, delicious dishes made exclusively with local ingredients -including a fresh selection of fish and mussels - as well as an assortment of seasonal vegetables and traditional Apulian bread. The interior of the restaurant was inspired by his surroundings to create an authentic Lecce aesthetic with Pietra Leccese and Majolica earthenware.
