RESTAURANTS AND SUMMER CLIMATE
The town has nothing to offer other than its simplicity and honest hospitality and, for those lucky enough to be a private guest, also to be able to appreciate the ancient local cuisine, the precious virgin olive oil and the full-bodied primitivo wine. .
Nevertheless, in the historic center, adjacent to the town square, the presence of two pizzerias (strictly "wood-fired" oven) allows you to taste the genuine local raw materials perhaps in a solemn and serene summer breeze envied by all the nearby territory ( Photo nos. 30- 31- 32-33-34-35).

Still, just behind the aforementioned church of San Nicola - on the continuation of the plateau of the Monte -, in via E. Fermi, Monte della Croce public park, is the restaurant "Settimo Cielo" where in addition to courtesy, professionalism and culinary genuineness is It is possible to enjoy, from a suggestive terrace, a romantic night-time panoramic view that stretches from the cubic block of Faggiano below to the whole Taranto plain (Photo nr. 36).
Finally, do not miss the tastings offered by the rotisserie "L'artista della Carne", in via Dante Alighieri, an enterprising butcher-grill where you can comfortably order directly at the meat counter and be immediately served at the outdoor table with a roast luculliano as part of the most typical local barbecue tradition; you just have to ask.
So, enjoy your meal on a starry summer evening in Roccaforzata in the province of Taranto.
