There were a few food items in Lecce that I had not previously seen in Southern Italy- Pasticcioto, pasta with chickpeas and fried dough, coffee with almond milk, and different types of hard rolls. They were all wonderful!

At Arcu Te Pratu on Piazzetta Arco di Prato 9. We passed by one evening and a girl with guitar was playing in the outdoor dining. Since we had dinner already, we decided to return the next evening. We were caught in surprise when the owner/waiter started to sing out to us. It got many guests getting out of their dinner for a dance. It was entertaining. Simply great! And food was excellent and fairly priced too.

Lots of Wine bars with excellent selections of wines from Pulgia. Try the white Chardonnays.... as everyone drinks RED wine, and some of the whites are truly amazing.
