Il Poeta Contadino

Il Poeta Contadino Review

Proprietor Leonardo Marco serves creative regional cooking in this upscale country restaurant in the heart of the attractive trulli zone. 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.
