The town of Polignano a Mare in Bari, southern Italy, offers a unique dining experience at the Grotta Palazzese. Open only during the summer months, a restaurant is created inside a vaulted limestone cave, looking outwards toward the sea. The restaurant is part of the Grotta Palazzese hotel located above.

Imagine the sound of water crashing against the shore as a gentle sea breeze hits your face. Wine in hand, Italian food en route and good company…

If I’m ever fortunate enough to make pilgrimage to St Nicholas in Bari, I know where I’m stopping for dinner!
