Osteria Piazzetta Cattedrale

Ostuni – Still in Ostuni we also needed somewhere to have dinner. A very good friend of mine recommended this cosy and elegant restaurant, just opposite the Cathedral of Ostuni.

I had a beautiful starter made of zuchhini and presented in a flan with different herbs. As main course I chose the delicious tagliata di manzo with salad. As they had also fresh fish that the waiter presented on a plate, some of us were not dissapointed with their choice.

The dessert was a pear pie, extraordinary good – no wonder they are also in the guide of Gault Millau.

Taverna della Gelosia

Ostuni – During our holiday in Puglia, south Italy we spent one night in Ostuni, the white city. For lunch we found a beautiful restaurant that had tables outside on different levels as the city is built on a hill with thousands of steps. The tables are under one huge fig tree and surrounded by many beautiful plants. In the distance you can even see a little bit of the sea.

For starters we ordered a variety of tipical antipasti from the region. Many of the recipies stem from the middle age. We had cod fish in black crispy dough, broccoli flan, a special fresh cheese with a topping of apple, pear and some spices and much more.. I cannot really remember. Actually, we were already full but ordered before three different pasta to taste. The first was a green pasta with different herbs, spinach and vegetables, the second a black pasta (orecchiette) with a vegetable sauce and the third thick fettucine with tomatoe and cinghiale (wild boar). It was all just fantastic food and I really recommend to go.
