    Came for a lunch late in the season (October 17), Restaurant was quiet and indoor dining only. The food was excellent. We both had the seared tuna then the ravioli. When we finished we decided to order another serving of the seared tuna. Did I mention the seared tuna was excellent? Good wine list too! Will return! Thank you! Grazie!

    Well, it is nice to find a place where the service is attentive towards the customer. Me and my partner loved the polpo starter and the homemade pasta. Wine was of good quality from local producers. We will definitely be back and I really hope that they will carry on with these standards. Truly recommended.

    We had the chefs four course menu and it was very simple, elegant and was a good and flavor first offering with fresh and subtly prepared seafood. The service was affable, attentive and helpful. Languages got sorted and we settled on French and was told of the owners training in Switzerland which was so evident in the sensibility and approach to hospitality and attention to detail wonderfully coupled with Italian and local gusto and love of food.. The outdoor tables were n a very busy street near a highly frequented entrance to the Centro Storico and the frenzy and fumes of cars dropping off and picking up and double parking in front of the table, idling motors and bustling people in and out really was the defining experience of the evening. The execelllent local white wine and solidarity mole elegance of the food was no match for the street theatre engulfing us. Maybe a quiet table inside would have allowed the chefs approach to triumph.

    Food was good. We particularly liked the tuna and the carpaccio. However, we waited long time for the pasta and at the end it was cold. Despite that it was still good.

    This was the best meal we had since we have travelled through Puglia. My husband and i had the surprise menu and it was a joy to our palate. Our kids are travelling with us and the restaurant succeeded in preparing something more adeguate for them. My son said he had the best orrechiette ever. For who likes tiramisu be sure to try theirs. It is just amazing! Unfortunately we are only travelling by because if this place was near home you can be sure we would be visiting it regularly. A big Thanks to Massimo one of the owners together with the cook whose name I missed; we had a great evening.

    We arrived promptly for our reservation to be graciously greeted and quickly seated. Outdoor seating was on the street side of the restaurant, which was quite busy and noisy, detracting a bit from the experience. I would suggest sitting inside. The food was interesting and tasty, as was the wine. Service was generally attentive, but food service was a bit slow for what we had. I would recommend this restaurant for dinner.

    My wife and I met Massimo years ago at Il Salento in Geneva, Switzerland (his brother is also a very gifted chef). Once we’d heard that Massimo was the chef at Metæ, we knew we had to go. The cuisine was exquisite! We had the Tonno con mango & guacamole, the Polpo su salsa di datterino giallo, Ravioli con tartare di scampo fresco, and Ombrina con spinacio e burrata. Every dish was well conceived and executed. I actually ordered a second portion of the Ravioli since it was so good! Pure pleasure! From now on, no trip to Puglia will be complete without eating at Metæ.

    The staff was kind and the food was excellent. Sadly a lot of cars pass by the street next to the tables, but you should definitly visit this one if you are in Monopoli.
