Osteria Perricci, Monopoli

1 Via Orazio Comes
Tel: 39 080 937 2208's insider take:

A local institution, Osteria Perricci is one of those great Italian trattorias that leave you sated, smiling, and not much poorer. In a narrow lane of the rough-edged but heart-of-gold fishing port of Monopoli, the Osteria looks like it's been there forever—and, of course, it has. Under whirring ceiling fans, tuck into an array of antipasti served by three generations of the Perricci family (the youngest waiter can't be a day over 14). These might include tiny Minnella olives, a variety that is at its best when lightly fried, as they are here; raw cuttlefish marinated in lemon; or delicate, crisp-fried Lecce seaweed. Then it's the turn of the unmissable house specialty: cavatelli ai frutti di mare—little pasta shells swimming in a sapid tomato and seafood sauce, topped with baby octopus, clams, shrimp, and whatever else the boat brought in that day. Even if you're starving, you'll be hard put to spend much more than 20 euros a head with a flask of house wine.

Open Thursdays through Tuesdays.
