Bari for a week, HELP!-

TomProulx Feb 12, 2012 10:45 AM

M wife and i are staying at a hotel in Bari for a week at the end of March.We are at the mercy of public transportation.
We have never been to this part of italy before. Couldn't find much on the boards about Bari, any restaurant recommendations would be much appreciated.

    Bari for a week? Which hotel are you staying in? There are tons of cute small places in Bari Vecchia, to have aperitivi at.

    Here's some places:

    Terranima for sure. One of the best places in town.

    Il Tavolaccio
    (di Minguccio Perucci Via Giancomenico Petroni 53 080 558 8636
    Extremely simple, local place, about a block away from the lungomare.

    Al Sorso Preferitto - great old fashioned fish restaurant. Ask for the antipasti, and they bring small plates.

    Il Focacciaro Via Salvatore Cognetti 43 Best focaccia in town. Also, don't miss their panzarotti and sublime onion rustic tart

    Definitely stop by the Lungomare, across from Piazza Eroi de Mare, where the fish sellers set up in the morning and get a plate of fresh, raw sea urchins.

    Have a great time (and keep an eye on your purse and wallet)

        Dear erica,
        This is great. As always, Hounders come through. Thank you once again. I'm feeling much more confident about my eating prospects.

            I've only been to the airport so am no real help to you. However, there are 2 restaurants in Bari city in my SlowFood Osterie guide; the guide is the English edition so there might well be additional listings in the newer Italian guides:



            Both are closed on Mondays, according to the guide.
