Restaurant Al Raffaello

A clever blend of classic and modern interior design, glowing with warm soft lighting, gives the place the romantic and refined atmosphere that blends so well with the quality of additional home cooking offered to customers in our lovely restaurant. The v

Five of us met for lunch. Four kinds of pasta with seafood, all superb. One had dried tomato pasta with shrimp and zuchinni. Ere are many different pasta dishes, plus meat and fish main courses. Drank a frizzante chardonnay made locally. The owner was very friendly and helpful. I recommed this strongly, but it is our only Bari dining experience, so I cannot make comparisons. Molto gentili nell'aver tradotto in recensione quello che avete gustato al mio ristorante. Alla vostra simpatia. Grazie mille

The location in the old town square is superb.... it's busy/lively...... excellent and fairly priced menu and wine list.... friendly attentive and not rushed service...... we ate in 20 odd places on our Puglia trip and this was probably one of the two best.

We followed the reviews and were not dissapointed. Slightly off the beaten track but very near to Piaza Mercentille.A simple restaurant serving delicious, fresh and unpretentious food. Very relaxed and friendly. Not expensive and very good value for money. We had seafood pasta and orchetti with courgette cream. Both delicious. A good, honest restaurant that was a pleasure to visit. Thanks for our lazy lunch. Recommend.

Ristorante Giannino

Reviewed By joeg870

13 spectacular courses Tucked away in the small streets of Torre a Mare this place was a great find. We spent New Years Eve here and glad we did. Food was excellent - staff was friendly and accommodating, prices were reasonable. We were a little concerned when making out reservation - they were slow to respond to emails and when we finally called we weren't sure we communicated well in English so we weren't sure our reservation was confirmed but when we arrived they welcomed us by name and all was good. Assuming the everyday menu is as good as NYE we highly recommend. Buon Apetito!

La Tana Del Polpo

Reviewed By FastFax

This place is coasting on it's reputation, which is overblown because of the overrated reviews of tourists.After making a reservation months in advance, we were greeted at the door with a scowl and told to wait in the narrow alleyway with others who did and did not have reservations, The place was open but it was not exactly 7 pm, but why make us wait like beggars in the street?They stood 2 abreast blocking the open doorway, letting people in as if they were doing them a favor.The place itself is small with tables crammed against one another. Other than a big octopus on the ceiling no charm or ambiance.They do serve a massive cold raw bar assortment in a hollow shell. The fresh fish is brought to the table to pick your victim, but this too is unpleasant when they are lugging the tray around the room, shoving it in people's faces, over others at adjoining tables.The food is good, but unsophisticated. In some instances it needs pepper or any other condiment to make it seem more than bland.Nothing to write home about or travel to Bari. There are so many fine fish places in town, don't be swayed by positive reviews, read the negative ones too.Lastly, we were victim to the same SCAM about the credit cards [their website states that they accept card] We were told the service was out and we should pay cash we refused, called over a manager and demanded that he resolve the issue...PRESTO, card taken and processed with no issue or delay at all.AS IS ALWAYS THE CASE, BE CERTAIN THAT ALL CHARGES ARE MADE IN THE LOCAL CURRENCY [HERE EURO] WHEN USING YOUR CHARGE CARD

Reviewed By elinfrid

This 4-/5 restaurant is one of the better ones we have tried in Puglia. Pros: Good fusion thinking and nice food and dessert. Nice ambience. Very nice and service minded staff, good wine recommendations and cool interior design (chairs made of carboard, not super comfy but cool, nice lightning and decor). Cons: Food just barely live up to standards of (what in my mind is) a 4/5 restaurant; mix of starters, where some are really good and some less, and the combination of all of them together does not work, sirloin is nicely cooked but not as tender as it could be and potatoes are boring, burger is nice but not top notch, should be medium rare and maybe with some salad or other ingredient.

Reviewed By PhilipD606

Despite most of the waiters speak little English and the menu is in Italian, you will find a way to order your choice of food and drinks. The beerlist and winelist are very impressive. We had the Gulp beer, local white and one of the Bulghieri red wines. We had deer carpaccio, pasta carbonara, mixed platter and another pasta as starters: delicious. The steak, burger and pork as main were as least as good.Definitely book in advance.They officially open at 2030, but they don't mind if you arrive five minutes early.Thanks a looooooooooooot!
