Seafood is a great source of inspiration in Apulian cuisine
Apulia is one of my regular destinations when I go back to Italy, so these are also good opportunities to enjoy local cuisine and great dishes of the Apulian cooking tradition in the restaurants I like. Here are my reviews of my favourite restaurants, normally specialising in seafood, in the towns I visit regularly:
Elegant and sophisticated both in the ambience and the cuisine, Jamantè is a new and very promising gourmet restaurant in Polignano. Surely something to watch out for future developments.
Chez nous, Bitonto
Another new restaurant, this time in Bitonto. Chez nous is a real treat with dishes prepared and presented with great care with carefully selected local ingredients. We need more restaurants like this one!
Trattoria della nonna, Polignano
Great care in the choice of ingredients, excellent customer care and a focus on fresh high quality seafood make of Trattoria della nonna in old Polignano a hidden gem. Very strongly recommended!
Black & White, Bari
Saint Peter’s Fish Fillet braised with Potatoes, Olives, Cherry Tomatoes and a Red Cabbage Sauce created by chef Daniele Caldarulo at Black & White Restaurant, one of the best seafood restaurants in Bari for quality of food and service.
Trattoria Porta Picc, Polignano
Great seafood menu and attentive service at the restaurant Porta Picc in old Polignano, within the good tradition of Apulian cuisine.
