Osteria del Tempo Perso

47 Via Vitale Tanzarella
Ostuni , Italy
39 831 304-819

The Osteria del Tempo Perso ("Inn of Lost Time") is squirreled into cavelike rooms off one of the many narrow alleys in Ostuni, a hilltop cluster of whitewashed buildings nicknamed The White City. Beneath walls adorned with farm tools, you can dig into such Pugliese specialties as orecchiette ("little ears" pasta) with wilted turnip greens ($13), the tegamino di funghi cardoncelli (a mushroom stew backed under a puffy cap of bread ($9), or a spigola (sea bass) cooked in parchment with clams ($24).
