We have eaten here several times now and each time the food has been delicious. The fish is simply cooked and served and the flavours speak for themselves. The catch of the day is presented on a plate to choose from, a pasta suggested and a price agreed, before the meal is freshly prepared.
We have found the staff to be very friendly and helpful, although frequently rushed off their feet;it is always busy. We had our hotel call ahead a few days for us to secure a table.
This a traditional, family run trattoria at its best.

We had an absolutely fantastic lunch at this restaurant. The staff were very welcoming and provided us with a highchair for our baby. All the seafood was fresh and perfectly cooked. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend visiting if you can get a table.

DON'T pay for rude and disrespectful restaurant! I should read bad reviews too. I saw thousands reviews and trusted average 4.4 starts.BUT I rather recommend to go La bul, or Biancofiore in Bari (reservation necessary).
Some restaurants in Italy do not have good attitude but this is worst. We had a dinner here but there was some accident by the staff. He dropped soy sauce to my hubby’s white pants and T-shirt. But we did not angry with him. The owner said if we take off the clothes which is impossible, then he will take it to laundry so we told him to come back tomorrow. We made a reservation the day after tomorrow at 8 pm for 4 people and went there. Unfortunately, my sister and mom were not in good condition so just two of us went there at 7.50 pm.
But the restaurant REJECTED us! They said we booked 4 people and we came only 2 people. We explained the situation to the owner or manager but he pretended he could not understand in English (Even we communicated in English before) and the staff kept repeating “IMPOSSIBLE”. What is impossible? So, you mean It’s impossible to take our reservation since we are not 4. But they took walk-in 2 customers instead??? WOW.
Seriously, it does not make sense. I really think they DO NOT WANT laundry fee. They did not even mention any single comment about our laundry.

This restaurant staff and owner act like Chinese. I did not even have any horrible experience in China. Shame on you.
When I read bad reviews, I was surprised that the restaurant manager replied "stay your home and do not bother our restaurant" to one of the reviews. Amazing!

When I read bad reviews, I can tell this restaurant is like this
1. If you do not order what they expect, they treat you horribly
2. If your number of people are small, they consider you do not give enough sales
3. If you are tourists, they try to cheat menu and price
4. If they are in trouble, they pretend not to understand English all of sudden

We love Pulpo (octopus)! And where better to eat Pulpo than in Puglia?! We are big food lovers and have been to many restaurants in Puglia & Rome and always ordered the Pulpo if it's on the menu. So when we discovered this little authentic family restaurant in the old town we had to go here. We went for lunch and where served by the owner and his son. They where so passionate about all their food! They spoke good english and advised us on the menu. We ended up with ordering this amazing fresh fish with pasta and off-course the Pulpo! Both where fantastic and their Pulpo was absolute our favorite dish from our holiday.

We bumped into this restaurant by chance. There was a long queue, mainly locals. It looked so nice that we decided to wait. And it was definitely worth it. The octopus salad was excellent and the fresh scorpion fish pasta was superb.
Great atmosphere, our waiter was so nice and Michele, the owner, a real character, so friendly. What a great dinner in Bari.
