RISTORANTE VICO LOPEZ - OTRANTO

di Massimo Panareo

BACK TO PUGLIA RESTAURANTS AND HOTELS

 

 

Well, after all the excitement of the Otranto Cattedrale and its mosaic floor,  a good slow seafood lunch seemed the right thing to do, and close to the Cattedrale (just wander up the Via Cenobio Basiliano and hang a right onto the via Laggetto) we found Massimo Panareo's Ristorante Vico Lopez (Tel 0836 804632).  Helped by his mum Rita and the complete lack of other pranzo takers, the event started with local prawns cooked in a lemon sauce and proceeded through six further plates of fish and shellfish amidst a lot of Italian exchanges about ingredients and the state of the world and the tourists who came to Otranto, and ending with almond stuffed semi dried figs accompanied by a glass (or two) of Moscato riserva (a liquid form of sunshine or heaven depending on your value system).  Here are some of the offerings.

 

This is spada (swordfish)

Figs stuffed with an almond, enjoyed with a glass or two of Moscato, and it was sadly time to head back to Lecce
