Well, this restaurant #grottapalazzese has been booked since February and I really want to gush about how bloomin fabulous it was....I’m so disappointed that I can’t! Be prepared for the longest post I’ve ever done!!!!! (And I’m keeping it brief!) The setting is breathtaking...what an amazing place to sit and have a meal with your loved one, but, the food was extremely underwhelming, anyone that knows me will know my spare time is spent eating out, and I will happily pay the price for an amazing meal, this was minimum of €140 euros per person for 2 courses, I knew this when we booked, not an issue as you expect it to be worth every penny! @discflipper had scallops to start, 5 HUGE scallops which were bland and far too many on his plate, I had carpaccio and burrata, enough to feed 3! Far too much rich food on a plate. Main course I went with truffle tagliatelle, lovely, but never have I ever had SO much truffle on a plate, not even shavings massive chunks of it! Big man had pasta with local #caciocavallo and shrimp, I think the chef thinks put €140 worth of indulgent food and they’ll be happy... not me! They know you are there for the setting and really don’t expect you to return.
Ambience 10/10 (truly a beautiful place)
Service 2/10 (they are rude, ignorant and literally there to serve food as quick as possible to turn the tables round)
food 1/10....what a pity!!! you are here to join the crowds of people posting on social media....It really is a very romantic, stunning setting, but sadly that’s where it ends..... #dinasbeen 😏

As sad as it was to say goodbye to Ma & Papi this morning, I was super excited to be heading to #poglinanoamare, the minuite we got our invite for the wedding we booked the restaurant we are going for dinner tonight, which in turn led us to find this place.....Wowzer!!! @mazzarelli_creative_resort is a stunning hotel! Home for the next couple of nights... @discflipper#italia2018 🇮🇹💞
Borgobianco Resort & Spa is truly one of Puglia, Italy’s best hotels. Based in the heart of the countryside, just a few miles from the beautiful seaside town of Polignano a Mare, Borgobianco is the perfect choice for a wedding, honeymoon or holiday. It’s even a great base to explore the other towns of Puglia.
The hotel resembles a country villa with 48 rooms including 27 suites with views of both the sea or the countryside. There’s a restaurant which serves Mediterranean and local cuisine. There’s a lobby bar, lounge and a Spa which features a sauna, hammam, gym and indoor heated pool. There is also an outdoor swimming pool and 2 meeting rooms. #puglia#poglinanoamare#borgobiancoresort#honeymoon#honeymoondestination#weddingvenue#weddingvenues
