We’ve done a lot of our own cooking at our Airbnb apartments but sometimes, of course, we go out for meals; trying to avoid tourist restaurants and eat where the locals go.
Tonight we are in a non-touristy town called Corato, on the south eastern coast of Italy in Puglia and our Airbnb hostess Lara recommended that we eat at “Le Stageoni de Puglia”. And no wonder it’s the number 1 (of 88) restaurants here on TripAdvisor. It’s a small family-run restaurant and our hosts include two sisters aged 15 and 16 who are practising their English.
We’ve had a lovely antipasti with local mushrooms, cheeses and local sweet olives followed by a seafood risotto for Roger and mushroom and asparagus pasta for Hilary. We tried to avoid puddings but were persuaded to try their local cakes: lemon and cheesecake.
A lovely experience.
