In the ancient centro storico, in the shadow of the 12th-century cathedral with its marvellous mosaic floor, Otranto is already temptating enough to visit.
The smart, contempotary trattoria Laltro Baffo seals the deal. Chef Cristina Conte creates seafood dishes, inspired by classic Salentine cuisune, but with a twist. Her creative way with fish is evident in dishes such as delicate sea bream and scampi balls in a smoky broth with hints of lemongrass. And for Otranto, it’s not even that expensive. Book well in advance.
