Eat Ostuni | Our Ostuni Restaurant and Bar Recommendations

Eat Ostuni | our recommendations

Sophisticated and stylish, poetic and timeless. Ostuni rises up from the rolling olive groves that surround it, a gleaming white oasis, framed by Puglia’s endless blue sky.

The choice of dining experiences in Ostuni during the summer season seems endless. Excellent restaurants and chic bars are tucked away in the maze of medieval alleys, arches and stairwells of the old town that shoot out from via Cattedrale and wind around the duomo and the old town walls.

While bad food is hard to find some restaurants offer better value than others. Restaurants regularly recommended on travel forums may not be included here. The food and dining experience may be good, but if it is comparatively overpriced without any added value, we haven’t included it.

We pay for all our meals and review anonymously.

Ostuni Bistrot

Restaurant - traditional local dishes. Good value, good food and friendly service. Great for lunch. Orecchiette in a traditional tomato sauce and the parmigiana offer great value at 8€ but their orecchiette with polpette and braciole (maritato piatto unico) 15€ blew us away.

Starters 5€ - 10€
Primi 8€ - 15€
Secondi 12€ -15€
Dolci 5€
House wine 4€ | 18€)

Ristobar New Life (Caffè Fanelli)

Bar, coffee and drinks. Our favourite spot for people watching, morning and evening.

Piazza della Libertà, 72017 Ostuni BR (2 Corso Cavour).

Asso di Spade

Take away panzerotti. In Ostuni we don’t do kebab on the way home. We go for panzerotti and Asso di Spade has some class specials including nduja, gorgonzola and guanciale as well as bog standard tomato and mozzarella. Hits the spot!

Via Benedetto Cairoli, 1, 72017 Ostuni BR.
