About Us

Trattoria Pugliese is located in one of the oldest areas of the historical centre, on an alley close to The Norman-Swabian castle.

It was born in 1888 thanks to Mistress Crescenza Pugliese, the widow of Mister Pugliese.

The place was composed of three rooms: the kitchen, the hall and the cellar that held the wine barrels. Afterwards, her son Vito took the reigns of the place. When Vito passed away, his wife Maria Favale took control. Until 1946 their daughter Dorotea (called Dora) and her husband Amleto assisted in the operations of the place. In August 2013, chef Pepè and his wife Vittoria, took the helm. Every citizen still keeps in their hearts a dear memory of all the owners, their dishes and the place.

The kitchen

To tell their land and their history

Many anecdotes and tales intertwine with the story of this place. One tale tells of Gabriele D’Annunzio, who was visiting a local noble family and came to eat in the Trattoria. Being tired after the great feast, he took a nap in the owners’ house.

Numerous famous people have left a memory in this unforgettable place. These people include Tito Schipa, Pasolini, Daniel Pennac, Erri De Luca, Monica Guerritore, Lee Ranaldo just to name a few.

We had a dinner in Trattoria on a first day in Giola del Colle - how lucky ! Between 4 of us we shared antipasti and than each person had a main dish . All superb , ambience and hospitality to match . We all agreed to come again !


I had lunch at this restaurant and it was really amaizing! It started from the tastiest focaccia and olive oil and finished with yummy fish and pasta! I highly recommend to visit this restaurant


This is by far one of the best places I have ever eaten at! The staff knows how to take care of guests and the chef is amazing! If you ever get a chance to visit go!!! So worth any drive and detour I promise!
