A sophisticated Michelin-starred restaurant crowning Ostuni’s maze of whitewashed lanes.

A sophisticated Michelin-starred restaurant crowning Ostuni’s maze of whitewashed lanes.

Chef Andrea Cannalire takes inspiration from childhood memories to create imaginative, theatrically presented dishes – think savoury cannoli filled with herby goats’ cheese, lamb with sea-urchin sauce and a chocolate-coated crema catalana disguised as an egg and flour. His menus have won him a well-deserved Michelin star, but they’re not the only attraction of this refined restaurant, which forms part of hotel Relais La Sommità – there’s also an excellent wine list and a vaulted dining room dressed in elegant neutrals. On balmy summer evenings, feast among olive trees in the walled garden outside.
