Corato is a town and comune in Italy. It is located in the Bari province of the Apulian region, in southeastern Italy. Founded by the Normans, it became subject to Alfonso V, king of Aragon, at the end of the 15th century, and later to the Carafa family. The chief feature of the old town centre, which is surrounded by modern buildings, is the Romanesque church. It is a twin city of Grenoble, France, where many Coratini immigrated during the 20th century.

The selection of food and wine fully represents the offer of Apulia.
Five points because:
- starters are well prepared using seasonal vegetables, traditional cheeses (ricotta and pecorino) served with warm bread and best taralli
- main courses are diverse, giving the opportunity to try also traditionally made ragù or chicory served with broad bean puree
- prime meat barbecued, including excellent horse meat (traditionally grilled with pepper and spices)
- the proposed wines are selected among the best labels offered by wineries from Apulia and surrounding regions
- fair price

We went on the recommendation of our hotel on a wet Wednesday evening in September. The map on TripAdvisor was wrong, and once we found it you have to ring the doorbell as the door is locked.
The restaurant is in a series of small beautifully restored rooms, and there is no menu, so a good understanding of restaurant Italian is vital, especially if you have any dietary requirements.
The food is mainly fish but you can ask for meat, and is made up of local dishes.
The house wine was delicious, and we had 4 small but excellent courses - we couldn't make dessert!
Including 2 quarter litres of wine and coffee the bill was only 60 euros!! We speculated on 100+ before the bill arrived.
Thoroughly recommended if you're in Corato.

The location of restaurant is perfect very near to historical building Castel del Monte which you can see on 2 cent coin. It is in the middle of olive and other kind of trees The foods are delicious and presentation like from a Michlen star chef. Do not think it is only a meat restaurant surprsingly we ate most delicious seafood we have ever eaten in Puglia region. I strongly suggest everyone to go there...You will not regret.

"La Pace dei Sensi" is a Hash House in the historic center of Corato, since November 2000 we offer traditional cuisine 'Made in Corato' and meat dishes cooked on the grill.
This place is just great. Good value lunch with amazing flavours. We didn't have a menu, just received loads of vegetarian anti-pasti and good local wine. The owner and waiter are very friendly guys and give the best of service...top notch value. Highly recommended if you're in this part of the world.

I have been really happy with the dinner I have had at this restaurant.
I am from puglia and I was in Puglia for a week with an irish friend. We have tried many restaurants in this week, most of them good enough but but not yet as good as some of the best restaurants in puglia can be some times.
Luckily we then decided to visit Il povero pesce, after having seen some good reviews on tripadvisor.
We have had first the appetizers, which were:
bruschette, pepata di cozze (mussels), prawns cocktail, parmigiana with pesto, graten anchovies, a small cake made of cheese, and 4 mantis prawns.
We then chose to have one sea bass each, grilled. They were very big.
And at the end we had cake, I had a cheesecake and my friend had a ricotta cake.
Absolutely everything we have had was of superb quality. This food, plus bread, half a litre of wine, mineral water and limoncello came as 40 euros (20 euros each!).
We decided to leave a generous tip because the price was absolutely ridiculous given the quantity and quality of the food we have eaten.
The restaurant is also quite nice, we were Seating in a small piazza in the old town centre. The waiters were very friendly and also, seen that my friend didn't speak any italian, they explained all the dishes in perfect english, which was really helpful.

Having gone here for years, I felt it was worth writing a review about.
The menu is varied and has something for everyone!
The owner knew us and have is free starters and found us a table in an already crowded restaurant.
We had the focaccia free then we also had rolls of melted mozzarella and speck along with oven baked rosemary potatoes (really yummy).
Next we had a pizza each;
Al crudo-tomato base with mozzarella and procutto crudo
Al pesto-a White pizza with pesto and mozzarella
La Contessa-a White pizza base with shredded mozzarella in cream with sun dried tomatoes and fresh tomatoes
They were light, thin and packed full of toppings- perfect!
I definitely recommend coming here as it's very good service and the food is brought out quickly!

The food is good, yet not excellent. My friend and I had meat and it was really good, nothing to say about the meat. We also had rolls of speck and mozzarella (nothing special about them) and platter of mixed cheese and salami. The salami, in my opinion was not of a very good quality, unfortunately. Now, the thing is that we had to wait a really long time before we had any food or drinks as a matter of facts. With the cheese platter you get 2 glasses of wine and plus we ordered a beer to drink it with the meat. The problem is, when food finally arrived, it arrived all in the same time so we couldn't eat appetizer first and then main dish, but we had to eat all in the same time in order to eat it while it is still warm. The waitress also brought all the drinks together, even though we specified otherwise. The service is to be revised, the waiters and the waitresses seemed inexperienced and we were witnesses of a very basic mistakes during serving, I know because I also work in hospitality and food industry. I hope they will consider this review as a constructive criticism.
