This will be my last request -- at least for Italy -- for a while. You folks at Chowhound have been and now are a great help. THANKS!
I’ll be in Lecce next month for two days, and I’d welcome Chowhounds' judgement of the restaurants below – taken from Michelin, Fred Plotkin, and posts on Chowhound. I’d welcome also any further suggestions. I'm looking for fine dining and/or local cuisine.
These three restaurants are most frequently mentioned:
-- Alle Due Corti
-- Osteria Degli Spiriti
-- Cusina Casereccia, which seems very small. Would the proprietor welcome someone who came solo?
Also mentioned from various and sundry sources are:
-- Mamma Lupa
-- Borgo Antico
-- Da Guido & Figli
-- Alvino bar and caffe
-- Gelateria Natale
-- Avio for coffee
I also need recommendations for a good bakery in Lecce to buy a loaf to eat on the ferry to Greece.
As always, thanks.
