Pasqua Lapaccio Primitivo del Salento 2005 A young wine with a deep red color and intense cherry and black fruit aromas. Slightly woody and alcoholic. Perfect for grilled meats and strong cheeses.
The first thing you notice when you see the restaurant are the Madonnas displayed high above the entrance; once you enter you'll be awed by the majestic tower fountain guarding the entrance. The restaurant almost resembles a wine cellar, with its sandpapered walls and giant wine bottles covered with multicolored wax. A wood oven serves as centerpiece. Service isn't quite up to standard. The restaurant had run out of several of the wines I ordered and the waiter was utterly clueless of the proper procedure for serving wine. Fortunately after sensing my superior demeanor and upbringing the Maître d' assigned a new waiter to our to table who was acceptable, though of course not perfect. The restaurant serves Italian cooking and I would encourage you to order a something from the oven. Everything I ate was excellent. If you can, try to sit in the Terrace, it's prettier and gets more light. It's located in San Jeronimo next to Pasta e Vino What I had:
