Agriturismo La Contessa

Reviewed By Nicco_FI

Excellent dinner in a charming "masseria", 10 minutes from the center of Lecce. The menu features few local, fresh and home-made dishes. We had mixed antipasti, a duo of primi and a very tasty secondo. Everything for 20E, including coffee and wine. We'll definitely be back.

Malcandrino

Reviewed By 876cherylg

It was once an underground quarry which was later used to store wine (the enormous, old barrels are still there). The food was delicious, service impeccable (very professional staff) and when we had finished, the chef came out to see if we were satisfied with our meal. They even bake their own bread. Everything was accompanied by the wonderful wines from the nearby Apollonio Winery which we had visited earlier in the evening. All in all, a fantastic experience and we will definitely be going back again.

Ristorante Pastificio "In Via Roma"

Reviewed By Jessica F

We were lucky enough to visit this delightful restaurant for a full pasta making experience. We were taken through the making of many varieties of pasta and it was clear they are absolute experts in pasta and appropriate accompaniments. Our lunch was absolutely delicious and we were lucky enough to sample some of the fresh pasta we had created.If you are even remotely close to this wonderful restaurant we would highly recommend a visit if not for the pasta making experience, then definitely for lunch or dinner. A truly unique and personalized experience!

La Bottega del Corso

All fans of Salento have to taste our products. Here you can taste cold cuts, chopping board with "capocollo" and a lot of cheese, bruschetta, puccia, good Apulian wine and much more...

Reviewed By BeeforSalmon1

If you enjoy trying local produce this small bottega is the place to visit in Lecce. They stock a huge range of local wines and beers which can be bought by the glass as well as the bottle. The have a small deli and make a great selection of sandwiches using only local cheeses and meats which work really well with the wines. They also stock local biscuits,pasta, spreads and pottery that are ideal as gifts. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Tabisca Il Vico dei Tagliati

Reviewed By DamienB690

Rather intimidating amount of staff meet you, but they were very friendly and helpful. Meat and fish is charged per kilo, slightly confusing menu, which needed explaining. Exceptionally good steak on a hot slate, papaer thin veal wrapped around pine nuts, raisins and cheese delicious. We returned here twice, great desert, and good seating outside. Very nice wine and beer selection.

We just spent 3 weeks in Italy and dined at a number of mid and high range restaurants each night and most days for lunch. My husband and I rate this restaurant as our number one choice for a number of reasons:- the host/waiter's (Giovanni) service was impeccable, the bread was all freshly made and delicious. We opted for the a la carte menu and each dish was fantastic. The price was very, very reasonable. We also had a great Puglian red Primitivo wine, very good and very reasonably price. Only 6 tables. You can see the creativity and care that goes into the food. We highly recommend this restaurant.

In Lecce for business for 2 days. Invited to this restaurant with a party of 8 from mixed nationalities. I have been numerous times in Italy and have been taken to many good places but this was by far my best experience. We started with a vast choice of dishes with cooked, smoked, grilled and raw fish. Our main was Sea-bass in salt crust and had again a vast choice of deserts. Divine...I would go back any time!!

Small -  Cucina And More

Reviewed By BonTerroirTrekker

We entered the restaurant, starving, about half an hour before they were scheduled to open. Instead of telling us to wait for normal business hours, the owner welcomed us, seated us and gave us free appetizers to tide us over until the staff arrived! What hospitality! The food was all wonderful! We had scampi, two ways, seafood pasta and antipasti.

Li Risi

Reviewed By Romana79

È una novità per Lecce, il risotto è tipico del nord :-) è una scelta coraggiosa, solo per questo va premiata. La zona non è delle migliori. I tavoli all’aperto hanno molto da migliorare: prima di tutto c’è troppo buio, e le sedie in plastica sono brutte e scomode. Inoltre sei proprio sulla strada e ti prendi tutta la rumorosità delle macchine. Delle belle poltroncine comode e sicuramente più luce per vedere i piatti ti fanno certamente dimenticare della strada. È sempre una questione di percezione. L’interno è minimal, intimo, molto luminoso con una bella cucina a vista sinonimo di pulizia e trasparenza. Mi piace. Buono il crudo di mare. Molto Buono il risotto al lime e tartare di gamberi. L’avrei gradito un tantino più al dente, ma era ben mantecato e la porzione abbondante. Servito ben caldo e questo è importante. Sarebbe carino associare al nome ‘Li Risi’ che in dialetto salentino significa ‘ridere’,,un personale più sorridente e aperto. Per esempio ci siamo seduti e solo dopo più di cinque minuti di attesa qualcuno ci ha salutati...impossibile non vederci data la dimensione del locale. Chi serve ai tavoli deve essere sicuro di se, accogliente e sorridente. Forse i ragazzi sono alle prime armi. Lo chef molto cordiale, è venuto a conoscervi ed è stata una piacevole chiacchierata. Sicuramente un locale dalle grandi potenzialità. Ci tornerò perché il menu dei risotti cambia ogni 15 giorni, sono curiosa di assaporare le novità. Buono il rapporto qualità-prezzo.
