We went for dinner with friends. The tall waiter was quite rude during service and when my husband went to pay, after repeating his request teice to divide the bill by half, the charged him the whole bill. He got annoyed and expressed it verbally....The waiter lost his marbles and started yelling at him, threating to hit him. Not only did the supervisor not intervene to calm him but he also started yelling and telling us to leave making an absolute scene. Absolutely unprofessional especially after having paid Eu 170. The food was ok but way too expensive for what you get. Would not recommend it to anyone!More
One Of Italy’s finest restaurants with two brothers and Mom driving exquisite fresh plates regardless of what you order. Spotless everything finest linens at very reasonable local pricing so it’s always busy with locals for dinner so be sure to make reservations. We had lunch...and dinner here on more than one day out of a 4 day stay. Also enjoyed it last Year and they have continued exactly as they did the. Extraordinary service and quality plus all wine served at very little mark up and at correct temperature EVERY time.More
Believe it or not it does rain in Castro! We had walked past Ristorante Underground several times when the weather was hot and dry and outdoors dining appealed. Today started and continued with rain, thunder, lightning and onshore winds - not too enticing for a...dining experience. We spoke to a local neighbour who highly recommended Underground for lunch - why not! What a great turn of fate🤗.
The entryway is not at all enticing - down some darkened stairs and through a glass doorway. However the immediate greeting from staff at this local institution were friendly and most helpful - promptly seating us without fuss and then sorted English menus at their suggestion. From then on nothing was too hard to assist us with any questions we had. The premises have a relaxed family atmosphere, and we shared the premises with singles, other couples, some local workers and us tourists all chilling with great food (local seafood for us), wine and a relaxed vibe.
Menu prices were in the moderate range, food quality was excellent, service also excellent. Do yourself a favour - take the steps down and have a special dining experience 😀More
Amazing seafood - fresh and tasty, with quality service from the staff. Recommended by locals, this restaurant has a large menu choice. Portions are big as well, so don't go for the extra mile if not 100% you'll finish everything in your plate! :)
I've...seen a review saying waiters run - well, that's the thing I've loved the most! Excellent food and fast service. A DREAM! :)
Keep going guys, nice job.More
We visited Castro Marina for the first time tonight. Fantastic staff and we had such a delicious meal with fabulous Puglia wine. Highly recommend. We then had a walk round the port which was extremely lively on a Sunday evening. Very memorable evening.
We have been there for 3 meals in a row, great food, great wines. But food is not the best part: my wife has specific food requirements, and they went above and beyond in meeting her needs. It is definitely worth going there!!! Bravo!
Had a wonderful meal at Underground. The gluten free pasta and gluten free fried calamari were a huge hit. The orecchiette with tomatoes and burrata were delicious as was the tuna tartare. Good bread and homemade taralli. We will be back again for dinner before...leaving Castro. Prices very reasonable.More
Staff very polite and helpful. Food was excellent. I was impressed by what the English call crisps which were home made. I liked the dining room with the vaulted ceiling. Menu is a bit limited like most menus in Castro Marina if you don't like...shellfish, octopus or fish there are few meat alternatives.More
We went here twice while staying in Castro. Friendly and accommodating family run restaurant. The food is superb. Would highly recommend the orecchiette with tomato sauce and mixed fried fish, but all the dishes were wonderful.
