My husband and I had an amazing dinner at Retro. We were greated by a very friendly waitress and then joined by the owner who was very attentive and explained to us about the dishes.
The ambience is very characteristic and the food is homemade at its best. The prices are very good.
We will certainly come back again when on holiday in the area.

We stumbled on this place by chance - basically old stables converted into a restaurant. Salvatore welcomed us as if he was welcoming us into his home. That night we had the meal of a lifetime. He kept bringing us local Puglian food to try as we hadn't had a lot of it. The wine was perfectly paired and everything sent us to heaven. We loved it so much we came back 2 more times after that. An absolute golden find. If we were rich we'd fly back just to eat at his restaurant again. It is THAT good. One of the most incredible highlights of our time in Italy.

While on vacation in Pescoluse we were recommended this restaurant by the owner of the beach establishment we frequented...he told us to make sure to mention to the owners of that restaurant that he sent us...when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised with the character and charm of the place...when we told the "bitter" waitress who had sent us she stated that it made no difference to her regardless...NICE!!!! Needless to say...she didn't crack a smile the entire time nor was she friendly as a waitress should be...thankfully, she didn't impact the quality nor taste of the food as it was great and the price was fair as well....this is definitely a place to eat as a tourist if in the Leuca area provided u don't mind snotty, snobby, waitresses.

2 things are really excellent in this restaurant:
- Of course the food, really following the traditions of Salento and offering typical dishes cooked in a very good way
- The place: you are going to eat in a very quiet and picturesque courtyard, with pleasant French retro musique as a background.

Great experience!
