In the town of Polignano a Mare in southern Italy (province of Bari, Apulia), lies a most 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.
Naturally lit by the aqua marine reflection from the waters, the summer cavern has been the scene of many a romantic moment since local nobility held banquets there in the 1700s.
The summer cave is open from May to October.
