 I pesci del mare son destinati a chi se l’ha da mangiare
Giovanni Verga, I Malavoglia

On summer evenings, when the sea breeze has caressed your skin all day long, the summer heat is felt, there’s nothing better than a hillside getaway to enjoy fresh fish or prime meat.
The ingredients are simple and fresh, the raw materials are of the highest quality and selected, like our extra virgin olive oil used for cooking all dishes. Or vegetables to garnish and accompany fish and meat. And the inevitable hand-cut potatoes, a tasty and tasty side dish.
On customers’ tables, among olive trees and Byzantine stones, the colours take shape: local crustaceans (the purple shrimps of Gallipoli and the scampi caught by our seas), from fried fresh fish to local lamb ribs, from beef fillet to breaded and grilled monkfish.
The secret is always the same and Antonella has understood it well: surprising her customers every day, more and more, for twenty years, a challenge that fills her with pride: “my products are not frozen, I choose to invest my time, it’s tiring but to see the satisfied and satisfied expression of a customer in front of a plate, it’s priceless… the policy of our restaurant is far from discount stores or low prices, we choose the best ingredients, because I am convinced that the quality of a dish depends on the freshness and goodness of the raw materials”. Salento is a land of genuine flavours, ancient traditions and perfumes, the best vegetables, the sea on the table, the most beautiful colours and flavours are there, in Antonella’s pantry, ready to come to life and satisfy even the most demanding palates.
