Fodor's Review

Amid the vaulted stone archways of this simple but highy acclaimed osteria (tavernlike restaurant) in the old city sit rows of bottles and books devoted to the worship of food and wine. It's no wonder, then, that the food is so good: after an antipasto del territorio (sampling of local meats, cheeses, and other delights) you could try stuffed eggplant or a selection of roast meats. To finish off, there are some unusual desserts. Ask owner Angelo Silibello to show you his impressive cheese larder carved out of the stone walls, where he personally controls the maturing process, or his wine cellar, stocked with the best of Pugliese and Italian wines.
