    Everything right about this restaurant. Excellent food, friendly professional service, fairly priced wine, in a pleasant atmosphere. The highlight was the seven amuse bouches which were highly creative. Definitely recommended.

    Really wonderful. Best meal we have eaten anywhere in Puglia in the last two weeks. Imaginative dishes, well-executed and served with real style. Can't recommend highly enough.

    Excellent evening, really friendly staff, with outstanding quality food, what really made the evening other than the food, was being able to watch the carrying on in the kitchen!! Many thanks for a great meal chef.

    Contemporary but calming decor with a small view of the chefs at work in the kitchen. Delicate but delicious dishes, mindful of the past but looking to the future. Excellent wine list and superb staff and sommelier. One of the best!

    We had a fabulous meal at Duo. We decided to have a la carte. The servings are small but exquisitely cooked and presented. The wait staff were very knowledgeable and friendly. The chef came and greeted us and chatted for a while. To start we were given 8 different amuse bouche, all tiny works of art. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole night.

    Fantastic meal by an amazing chef. We took a journey and enjoyed every morsel. Chef Fabiano was a gracious host and an amazing person who creates magic through food. Go!

    Peasant food and degustation do not go together. We ordered the local menu, against my better judgement- far too starchy, every dish was potato or pasta. The shining light were the tasty, interesting hors d’oevres served initially. They were excellent.. The other degustation menus were either all fish or all meat. Too much again of the same. Better to order a la carte at this restaurant

    Tijdens ons verblijf in Salento | Puglia hadden we bij DUO Ristorante in Lecce een bijzondere en luxe eetervaring. Alles klopte deze avond: de ambiance, de ontvangst en de service, de presentatie en de verfijnde smaak van de gerechten, de bijbehorende wijnen en niet te vergeten de persoonlijke benadering van chef Fabiano Viva. Proef, ervaar, leef! During our stay in Salento | Puglia we had a special and luxurious dinner experience at DUO Ristorante in Lecce. Everything fell into place this evening: the ambiance, the service, the presentation and the taste of the refined dishes, the corresponding wines, not to mention the personal approach of chef Fabiano Viva. Taste, experience, live!

    This is a truly unique, amazing restaurant! The presentation is visually stunning and the tastes fantastic. It is a true blend of exquisite Japanese taste with the traditional dishes of Puglia creating a new language of food. Definitely a must while in Lecce!
