    The chef at Duo was amazing! He was very personable, treated us at our table and explained Apulian cuisine and the various. dishes. His "welcome dish" from the chef consisted of five wonderful little starters or 'amuse bouche' as they are often called. Just amazing! The two pastas we had were just on point, and our seafood plate after was perfectly prepared. Duo's menu is very creative but honors the flavors of Apulian. It was a wonderful meal.

    The atmosphere was inviting the moment i stepped into Duo. I was greeting with warmth and caring. The Chef came out to chat to each table and he was engaging and delightful. The food was superb!! Some of the best food i have had on my travels in Italy. I will be back for sure.

    Not the cheapest but quality was very good. We had the 6 course taster menu with paired wines. I loved every dish, but my wife wasn’t keen on two of the starters. Standard was fantastic but these 2 weren’t to her taste. We had a chat with the chef which we both really enjoyed. If you can afford it I recommend, if you’re on a budget it’s not for you.

    This restaurant is a wonderful discovery, where the chefs' love of their cuisine « in Duo » appears on your plate as if by magic. The quality of the well-presented local wines makes you travel throughout the region. A must for a gastronomic journey.

    Great restaurant and friendly helpful start. Chef spent time at every table making them feel welcomed. The food is delicious and of high quality. The chef’s starts was impressed with unexpected flavours, which can be described as multi-sensory cooking. Would highly recommend. A Michelin star is surely on it way to the restaurant thanks to the chef and its staff.

    Small restaurant with a great service team and interesting menu (degustiazione)! Nice combination of traditional resources and new and creative styles of presentation. Calm and beautiful dining room. The chef and the team are dedicated to create an amazing evening for everyone. After our menu the chef stayed over 30 minutes on our table and we had a great conversation about European cuisines and the characteristics of the Apulian one!

    This restaurant was excellent. The food, the service, the ambience- all excellent. Also really enjoyed having the chef come out and speak to us.

    We made a real effort getting here and found the Spring tasting menu generally imaginative and well prepared but got turned off by the chef who appeared to berate the staff at every chance and has rude table side manner, ignoring half the table, the half who made the occasion occur. Must recognize a patron who is there to be engaged, not ignored. I will not be going back or recommending this restaurant.

    I dined solo at this amazing restaurant. The chef himself came out and introduced himself. He described his creative approach to the Pugliese cuisine. The orecchiette were excellent, the fish was impeccable, but the dessert was a different level. I had a lemon mouse with a cap of capers/lemon/basil meringue. The whole experience was outstanding. Hats off!

    Just a really pleasant and enjoyable dinner/lunch. Great service! The oyster icecream is creative and tasteful. Some delicious White Wine were served.

    Duo Restaurant is extraordinary. Anyone visiting Lecce, or even somewhere near Lecce, owes it to themselves to visit. The presentation is remarkable and level of imagination is almost without equal. From the many-course amuse bouche to the wonderful oyster ice cream with caviar to the many-course dessert, the dinner could not have been better. Duo vies with, and in some case exceeds, many three-star Michelin establishments, and at a much better price. Congratulations to Fabbiano and his very attentive staff!

    We had a lovely lunch on Sunday and throughly enjoyed the tasting menu. The Cheff came and greeted us personally and explained what he had in store for us. The food was a delight for the palate as well as the eyes. Highly recommend a meal here.

    Where to begin? From the welcoming service to the ornery chef to the excellent food Duo did not disappoint. We chose the classic tasting menu with wine pairings and had the opportunity to experience the best interpretations of local foods. We both enjoyed each course and the passion behind the descriptions. The evening was full and well worth the price.

    Staff explained every thing. Wine pairing was excellent. Generous pours. Chef is charming. A sweeter dessert would be better. Small complaint on outstanding meal.

  • Mike S.1 review

    June 9, 2022


    The focus to detail and ingredients from the local area were spot on. We had the wine pairing and they were a great compliments to each of the 7 courses The chef visited us twice and the entire staff was there every step of our 4 hour meal. One of the best meals we have had. Love this place. Too bad it’s 4500 miles from home. We will be back however!

    Creative and substantial additions to what many diners think is classic Pugliese. Chef Fabbiano knocks it out of the culinary pitch with reductions and aromatics that fortify lamb, squid, cappelletti and foams; and his breads and dolce are singular. Special. An original and reasonably priced Michelin 1 star on its way to 2. Service sublime. Really.

    We had a beautiful dinner. The host greeted us as soon as we walked in and made us feel welcomed. There were different menus available but we preferred to order a la carte. The menus were appealing but there is a restriction to order the same courses for the whole table. A la carte, instead, we had the freedom to order what we wanted and we frankly preferred. The benvenuti courses were amazing: it was a tour of flavours from the land and sea of Salento, the chefs did a really good job to entertain us with this food journey. I had a brilliant polpo as a starter and my girlfriend had a meat based dish which I do not remember what it was but I still remember the flavours, lovely! We were impressed by the after dinner drinks, a very special vermouth for my girlfriend and a sort of herbal amaro for me which had great texture of bitterness and pungy after taste. The staff was very charming and cheerful: thanks to the knowledgeable sommelier, the 'newyorkese' guy and the host. We had a great evening and will definitely be back when around in the elegant town of Lecce. Grazie mille!

    While the food is absolutely impeccable, the service is too rushed and with lack of attention to detail. We were given a QR menu and asked to order immediately. The sommelier did not allow us time enjoy our meal, she kept on interrupting, too often!
