Here are some shots from my dinner with Chiara from In Chiara Veritas, enjoying our Japanese tasting accompanied by an excellent bottle of wine from the Valle del Maipo in Chile!

Wines of Puglia, discovering the Susumaniello wine

2017-11-27T05:35:16+00:00November 27, 2017|Food & Wine, Puglia|0 Comments

Among the wines of Puglia there is one that is less known than the others: the Susumaniello. This post was written by my cousin the sommelier Cosimo Ricciato. In the last two-three years I was very pleased to find that Puglia, a region I know well also because I was born there (Salento) is also beginning to use pure autochthonous (1 - see at the end of this post) vines for the production of particularly [...]

Beautiful beaches in Salento, Puglia: Torre Mozza in Ugento

2017-11-13T05:37:22+00:00November 13, 2017|Puglia, What to see|0 Comments

The beach of Torre Mozza is in Ugento, in Salento, between Torre San Giovanni and Lido Marini and Torre Pali beaches. It is a beautiful beach that joins up with the white beach of Torre San Giovanni to the north, creating a continuous line of sand kilometres long. Torre Mozza is in itself a very small centre inhabited by a few dozen people that increase in numbers during the summer due to the amount of [...]

I went to Castro for the nth timealong the Otranto - Santa Maria di Leuca coastal road in Salento, one of the most beautiful ones in Italy. The serene and sunny day urged me to take various photos and write this mini guide at Castro that you may find useful in case you find yourselves on holiday in Salento. The first thing you will notice about Castro is its position on a small bay dominated [...]

We were contacted by Ville & Casali, in the month of June, for a short interview with Carlos Solito, about the real estate market in Salento, Puglia. The magazine published a reportage on our area in Puglia in which it signaled out many places to visit and local traditions to discover. "Colpo di Tacco". A voyaje to the other Salento, the inner one that is behind the famous locations of Otranto and Gallipoli. A slow [...]

Bacino Grande restaurant in Torre Lapillo beach

2017-08-06T18:29:32+00:00August 6, 2017|Puglia, Where to eat|0 Comments

A restaurant that I warmly suggest between Torre Lapillo and Porto Cesareo in Salento is without a doubt the Bacino Grande restaurant. I go there now and again, above all at the beginning of the summer before the height of the proper working season begins. Good cuisine and fantastic location. I usually choose fish but you can also order meat or vegetable based dishes, all rigorously typical gastronomical specialities. The hall has a marvellous, and [...]

2017-06-26T05:02:07+00:00June 26, 2017|Food & Wine, Puglia|0 Comments

The Pignata Octopus (Purpu a Pignata in local dialect) is a typical recipe in Puglia. The pignata is the terracotta container used for cooking it. Once it was done on the fire, today we have modern cookers and we do it in saucepans. But nothing prohibits you from cooking it old style if you have a terracotta container at home. Here's the recipe. Ingredients 1 Octopus | Cherry tomatoes | Parsley, Celery, Oregano, Extra virgin olive [...]

How to avoid the traffic on the Ionian Salento coastal road in summer

2017-06-12T05:04:53+00:00June 12, 2017|Puglia, Travel tips|0 Comments

Today's question was asked by Guido and it's relative to movements towards the sea in Salento in August: how do I move about? Will I find traffic? Here's my answer, but before I must explain the opening photo. It's a photo I took from my mobile phone while I was going to my sea, yes: it can happen that a flock of sheep interrupts your trip. They are the rhythms of Salento. "hello fabio, I [...]

2017-05-23T08:40:16+00:00May 23, 2017|Puglia, What to see|2 Comments

It gives you a pleasant feeling when the most important newspapers and magazines in the world write that your beach is among the most beautiful ones ... in the world! It had already happened with the beach where I was born in Torre Lapillo, when The Guardian listed it among the 10 most beautiful little-known beaches in the world. Now its the nearby beach of Punta Prosciutto's turn: this time it's The Telegraph that mentioned [...]
