It didn’t take long to conquer the people of Lecce, and the growth doesn’t stop. Small and well-kept, the place proposes seasonal market cuisine whose focus is bringing attention to the local ingredients. Its author, Maurizio Raselli, chooses to call himself “artisan cook”. And he is precisely that in the skill with which he values resources and in his choice of suppliers, all trustworthy. Also on the menu is his “orange carrot octopus”, which is excellent; the “lingua prezzemolo spunzali” is representative, served with a Piedmontese salsa verde affirming the chef’s Alessandria origins. Light prices and natural-oriented wine list. Polite and attentive service. Reservations necessary.
