We celebrated my birthday here in mid October and it was a welcome change from the food sampled in many other restaurants during our month-long stay in Italy, visiting the north and then the south. Many locals just would not (and, apparently, do not) 'get'...the food at Tuna Lounge as most Italians are wedded to 'traditional' dishes, cooked by their mamas. But for Australians used to eating all kinds of cuisines, the food here was a very enjoyable surprise. It was fresh, tasty and interesting in its presentation. We wish the talented, and brave, young owner a very successful career.More

This restaurant was the highlight of 2 weeks of meals throughout Puglia. Service was exceptional, food was uniformly excellent and the value was excellent. Would have loved to make a second visit, however it will have to be another time. Best wishes to the young...owner of this establishment.More

Its a small restaurant in a small town but very nice. Good food. We were in a party of 6 adults and 3 kids and they were kind enough to open up for diner half of an hour earlier for us! Great service!

The service and atmosphere were great. The waiters very friendly specially in a big group as ours including small children. The food was great to some, average in some other cases and not good in some spot cases. Maybe some of us were unlucky. However...I believe a great restaurant is great in whatever dish your order. So I thought value for money was not optimized...More

Restaurant was noisy, crowded, and so hot that we took turns going outside to cool off. Understandable and marginally acceptable if the food was good which it wasn’t. Pretty presentation lacking in taste. I left half of my fish and went outside to get an...ice cream next door.More

What a wonderful restaurant! Absolutely delicious food and great service. Best pasta with lobster ( €20) we’ve had in a very long time- absolute perfection. The tuna plate .was perfect. Considering the quality of the food not really expensive.

I don’t understand why the reviews are not glowing enough. This was better than Tuccino at half the cost and twice the service. The seared tuna is a must, and Ricardo, the owner will take good care of you

I think you have to deal with them directly. I did not found an online reservation service there.
