Summer Cave Restaurant in Italy is One of The Most Romantic Restaurants in The World

Are you are looking for a meal that you will remember forever? If you go to southern Italy and don’t try this cave restaurant, you will not forgive yourself for the rest of your life!

In the town of Polignano a Mare in southern Italy, lies a most exceptional dining experience at the Grotta Palazzese. Set in a vaulted limestone cave, the restaurant sits just below the Grotta Palazzese hotel and  is open only during summer.

Inhabited since the Neolithic, The location was once a Greek colony. Noblemen and women have sought out the tranquility of this natural limestone grotto in Southern Italy for hundreds of years. The restaurant itself might have been in use since 1700 until it was finally transformed into an exclusive Italian cave restaurant called The Grotta Palazzese Restaurant.

The clifftop Grotta Palazzese has 20 rooms overlooking the Adriatic Sea and the old town of Polignano a Mare. Dimly lit and covered with furnishings made simply from natural materials in order to fit in perfectly with its unique surroundings, the restaurant boasts magnificent views.

You will not only have the utterly unique experience of dining in a cave, but also can enjoy the sublime beauty of the outlook over the Adriatic Sea and its spectacular sea cliffs.
