    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.

    Absolutely fabulous food. Best restaurant in Monopoli. We dined there last year and returned this year, eating several times during our 2 week stay. Don't miss this retaurant!!!

    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.

    Good food and excellent wine. Very nice service and pleasant atmosphere. The Tuna was beautifull and very fresh. We had the chefs menu and is was excellent. If you want to eat seafood this is the place to be.

    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.

    The service was excellent and the food was absolutely amazing, we loved the whole experience, perfect. The only very tiny thing we would change is the lighting, perhaps a little too bright, slightly dimmer would improve the ambience.
