Il Poeta Contadino

Il Poeta Contadino Review

Recently, this restaurant split into two establishments standing side by side on the main road leading into Alberobello from the SS172. The more upmarket Poeta Contadino continues to serve creative regional cooking, while the Osteria del Poeta offers a budget menu. The refined, understated dining room features candles casting shadows on the ancient stone walls. Dishes might include triglie con vinaigrette alla menta (red mullet with a mint vinaigrette) or filetto di maiale in crosta di erbe con salsa agrodolce (herb-crusted pork fillet with a sweet-and-sour sauce). In season, try anything with white truffles.
