Fantastico, autentico, delizioso, semplice, originale…. Mancano le parole…. Perfetto! Servizio meraviglioso, posto bellissimo…

We were in Minervino for 4 nights on a wine and foodie tour in September 2020. Manna dei Re impressed us so much that we ate there twice. It was indeed food fit for a king. 1. Both inside and out the dining area is...compact and pleasant. 2. The menu was also compact, but with really interesting choices, at extremely good value. 3. Service was friendly and well-paced, with good explanations for all our questions. 4. All in all, it was a superb dining experience, recommended to all future travellers in the area.More

A tiny place within a quiet town but really exceptional in terms of the food. Take their recommendations - we didn’t regret it. Spaghetti Lobster and the Cod was superb. As was the burrata. Our friends took the sea bass which was served fresh and...looks very very good. Enjoy!More

The restaurant has a an old with a modern feel architecture with beautiful arches which give a peaceful and calm environment. The staff is very helpful an available at any time; the food comes fairly quickly and with decent plaiting. I fairly recommend to everyone...who is by Minervino di Lecce to try this restaurant, it is definitely worth it for its price.More

We went here when the more highly rated nearby restaurant was u able to find a seat for two. A very good turn of fate. The greet and service throughout was excellent, attentive but not intrusive. Beautiful food and a nice wine list. Good value...also for a nice dinner out. It is also a very beautiful room to dine in.More

Went to this very excellent new restaurant in the small town of Minervino di Lecce. You can’t go wrong ordering anything on the menu here. Worth the trip if you are staying in Otranto or anywhere near. All the fish we ordered was fresh and...cooked just right: the tuna, the snapper, and salted cod. Everything was presented in a very picturesque way and tasted amazing all the way to the deconstructed tiramisu for dessert. Nice ambience and the a/c didn’t hurt either. Lots of special touches, don’t miss this restaurant. Bon Appetito!More
