Fodor's Expert Review Ristorante al Pescatore

$$$ Bari Seafood

In the lively heart of the old town, opposite the castle, stands one of Bari's best seafood restaurants. Try the house specialty, crudo di mare (a platter of mixed local seafood), accompanied by a crisp salad and a carafe of uplifting Pugliese wine. The interior is rather bare, with whitewashed walls and a vaulted ceiling, and the dining room can be crowded and noisy, but during the summer you can sit on the quieter outdoor veranda. Reservations are essential in July and August. Note that the restaurant also has six contemporary B&B rooms.
