Corteinfiore specializes in seafood. It's fresh, fresh, fresh and creatively prepared. They have many different appetizers and you could almost make a meal of them. Extensive crudo menu--the one we tried was carpaccio of red shrimp that had been pounded flat with a preserved lemon sauce. They also have a warm appetizer platter that is their signature dish of several different fish--a baccala croquette, fried shrimp, grilled octopus, etc. We had a pasta with clams for our main but after the antipasti it was really too much. The restaurant is like a garden with citrus and fruit trees around the perimeter and adding to the garden atmosphere the tables and chairs were metal outdoor furniture. It's on a street parallel to the seaside Promenade. You won't have a water view but the food is better than the tourist spots on the water and the atmosphere inside is like an oasis on a hot day. You can easily walk here from the Trani Cathedral, the main tourist site.

Well-made dishes, rich aromas and flavors. Serving the sea and the land of national and international gastronomic delights to choose from at any time of the year.

Judging by other English-language reviews we read here, the management of Le Lampare al Fortino must entrust its English-speaking guests to waiter Gaetano Tassiello, who has done English-immersion working in London restaurants but whose heart is in warm and sun-drenched Puglia. His welcome was warm,...MoreDear guest, many thanks for your kind words and positive feedback. Looking forward to have you back again. Best regards from all the staff.

Gallo Restaurant is the art of eating for those enjoying life! Overlooking the elegant harbourage of Trani, Gallo is renowned for being one of the best seafood restaurants in the whole land of Puglia. The seafood specialties prepared with fresh fish, desserts, a wide variety of wines available (with more than 50 large Apulian wines) are just some of the features of the room. The staff, led expertly by Mr. Gallo, a business man with twenty years of experience in catering, is formed to hold your hand and guide the client in an authentic culinary journey to find the perfect balance between tradition and creativity, under the banner of kilometer zero.
When some of my friends in Manhattan talked about this restaurant few miles away from my hometown, I thought I have absolutely to dine in. I did it, and I'd do again if I were living there. The restaurant is on the Promenade of the seaport in Trani, which means that you can enjoy a delightful view of the old town. Since I'm from the area but I live in Manhattan I can definitely tell you it deserves the money and a trip (if you are in Salento, take a car and come here just for them). Alessandro, the owner, has fantastic taste and suggested us a great wine. The raw seafood was absolutely amazing as well as the primo and the dessert (we had no secondo). I suggest to visit it very often, since the menu is seasonal (as Gramercy Tavern in NYC).

After a short trip around the streets close to our b&b to select somewhere interesting to have our last dinner in Trani we selected Osteria Frangipane. We had the tasting menu. Every course was great. Excellent ingredients were beautifully cooked and presented in an innovative way. Service was also great with explanation of each course by the staff. Our waitress was absolutely wonderful and we found the sommelier charming and happy to recommend a bottle that matched our meals.

We ate one of the great meal that we have ever had. The food (mainly based on the sea) was great. Generous dishes with tasty food and the price is reasonable compared to what you get. Highly recommended!!

Warm and welcoming. My 7 year old was fed immediately and warmly accommodated in the outside garden. The location is slightly removed from the hubbub of the port and benefits from this.
The food is freshly made and the service is exemplary. The chocolate soufflé is to die for. Great wine and a wonderful selection of whiskeys.

A contemporary Mediterranean cuisine with roots on Puglia, tasty and light, affordable and understandable, made of elegance and concentration of flavors, always emphasizing simplicity and aiming to preserve the identity of each ingredient not to confuse it.
Quintessenza is a small restaurant with simple contemporary decor located in the charming city of Trani. Much like the decor, the menu features pared back dishes that use relatively few ingredients and instead focus on the produce itself, ensuring that its flavours shine through.
Out of the dishes that we ate, of particular note was a straightforward sounding salad of white and french beans; the dish itself had an incredible depth of flavour achieved by different treatments of the beans from grilling to steaming and everything was bought together with a very well balanced dressing; the whole dish just tasted of summer (my description does not begin to do it justice). A couple of pasta dishes were well executed. A fish course of cod served with a tomato and bread paste and a basil and mozzarella water sauce sounds odd on paper but tasted delicious bringing together classic flavours in a new way. Desserts were good too ranging from a twist on classic flavours of peach to a coconut and lime creation.
Service throughout was attentive and the bill confirmed that it was excellent value for money; highly recommended and I will definitely return when I am next in the region.

A la carte restaurant, located in the historic center of Trani, a short walk from the Castle and the Cathedral and surrounded by a sea smell. A small elegantly understated location that creates an intimate and magical to be lulled by the emotions of the culinary creations on the sweet notes of jazz music. The environment is minimal, framed by an old structure turned around in local , where to catch the essence of Mediterranean cuisine with a modern twist according to an interpretation of the chef. The love of tradition and curiosity for innovation blend the passion and creativity of Chef Patron Michele Elia. Always attentive to marry with fantasy and care the traditional flavors of Apulian cuisine with the most modern cooking techniques and sophisticated combinations, implementing an original and genuine product. His philosophy is to transmit emotions with food for a trace or evoke memories of genuine flavors, so behind every dish there is a curated search for balance between the selected products and local flavors to enhance the freshness and enhancing the area. Even the wine list is a curated selection of Apulian wines and more. The menu is seasonal , in harmony with the rhythms of nature to provide healthy food and quality in terms of taste and smell.
My best meal in Puglia. An exceptional combination of traditional and gourmet cooking.
Each course was made with fresh fish and produce. The appetizers were varied and unique. Tuna Tartare with cucumber and melon,
délicate carpaccio of spiegola, octopus in
light cream sauce, aubergine stuffed with moist fish. Main course of FRESH sea urchins with
home made spaghetti. Then sea bream with light sauce of almonds, mint and ricotta. Dessert was 6 individual and unique petits-fours. Each one was a unique sweet taste with
a hint of something savory and an airy froth.
All accompanied by a light house vino bianco.
Bravo il cuoco and our guide Paola who made this last evening in Puglia an exceptional one.
