I'm in the midst of planning a trip to a part of Italy I've never visited, Puglia. The trip would be in late October through first week in November.

More specifically, after about a week in Rome, I plan to drive down to Matera (Basilicata) and spend a couple of nights, then spend a week based in the city of Lecce (the Salento peninsula).

No recent recommendations here. Any ideas for great vegetarian meals? (Fish to, but not seafood.) I may head to Gallipoli, etc.

I'm about to go to Puglia for a couple of weeks, specifically near Ostuni and then near Specchia and I wondered if anyone had any recent food recommendations, I guess either restaurants with an emphasis on more traditional food or good bakeries, things like that. I've had a look through the various Puglia food / restaurant threads, but the restaurant threads in particular are 10 years old and I just thought I'd see if anyone had any recent good experiences.
