Dinner in a Sea Cave. Live Your Italian Dream.

Dinner in a sea cave; no windows or ceiling; the ocean breeze wafting about as you listen to the waves crash on the rocks. This is the seaside town of Polignano a Mare in Puglia. The restaurant Grotta Palazzese is definitely a tourist attraction with over priced food – but it is well worth the price for the experience. We dined a bit early by Italian standards and were treated to the most prized table located on the edge of the cave, overlooking the ocean. For accommodations, we did not stay in the hotel associated with restaurant but rather in the neighboring town of Monopoli – a short 10 minute car ride from Polignano a Mare.  I had seen this restaurant in a Facebook post of all places and just decided to make it a priority on our trip last October.  I’m glad I did.

  1. I’ve been to Grotta Palazzese, and yes, it is one of the most incredible places to go in Italy, without a doubt. The price of the restaurant is worth it for this memorable experience.
