Cisternino

Tranquil Cisternino is a beautiful hilltop town surrounded by vast plains of beautiful olive groves. The picturesque town centre itself is full of historic buildings and closed off to all traffic, making it perfect for exploring. The town features a choice of bars and restaurants in which to spend a warm evening eating and chatting. Try out one of the town’s Osterias – traditional restaurants where you can sample the local speciality of delicious grilled steak – and then walk it off by joining the locals for the traditional evening stroll around the town.

Cisternino - Food & Dining

Cisternino is quite famous for it's Macellerias (Butcher's shops) which are different to those you find in the UK. Here you can select your meat and how you would like it cooked then sit outside or sometimes in a small restaurant across the street and enjoy freshly cooked local meat with a bottle of local wine. A fun and often inexpensive way to eat out!
