First, thanks to all of you who have commented on my other listings for me Feb. trip!

I will be in Trani, Apulia, another place that seems to be a bit off the Chowhound well-trodden path. I tried to do my homework and didn't find much. I plan to see the Cathedral in the morning, and then spend a leisurely long lunch (“dinner” to us Southerners), especially with local cuisine. Give me you judgements on the following and then give me any other recommendations:

FRED PLOTKIN’S Italy for the Gourmet Traveler recommends:
Antica Osteria del Teatro, Via Statui Marittimi 60 0883/41210

MICHELIN ITALIA 2010 recommends:
Il Melograno, via Bovio 189

CHOWHOUNDS recommend
La Nicchia
Torrente Antico

Thanks beforehand.

  1. Well, Gambero Rosso recommends CorteinFiore, very highly.
    also a lot of favorable online reviews linked on their Google place page.

    fwiw here is a page from a a local discussion/review forum in Puglia with reviews on trani restaurants google translate makes the reviews easily accessible.

    Our restaurant page includes other restaurants in Andria and other nearby towns.

      Trani is a stunningly beautiful town and I hope you enjoy it. I had lunch at Corteinfiore in September and I can highly recommend it. Just one warning, the menu then was entirely seafood - exquisitely prepared - but no meat. Very interesting list of local wines,too.

    2. ps I searched for the address for Antica Osteria del Teatro - it looks like there might be a pizzeria at that address now.

      it seems like there is clearly some kind of eating establishment oer the google street view - there are tables out front

      1. Sid: Just wondering how you fared on your February trip. I am planning to visit the Trani area this spring and would love to have some ideas, especially for the day or arrival, a Sunday, which is always problematic.
