A true taste of rustic dining from the south of Italy, Apulia is a charming, rustic trattoria that's just moments from Smithfield Market. Specialising in Puglian cuisine, this is an intimate little spot with quirky design touches like vintage bicycles on the wall and weathered white wooden furniture.
Classic Puglian family recipes made with authentic ingredients using traditional methods are the focus on the Apulia menu, starting off with rustic appetisers like marinated beef tartare with fennel and sun-dried tomatoes, and oven-baked caciocavallo cheese with braised apple, raisins and honey. Freshly made pasta delicacies feature options like slow-cooked duck ragu, and spaghetti with sea urchin pulp, fresh tomatoes and coffee powder. Perfectly fired pizzas are made with a carefully guarded dough recipe, and topped with imported meats and other Italian treats.
All desserts at Apulia in Barbican are homemade, and include baked dough ball filled with custard cream and sour cherry, and the gluten-free almond and chocolate cake. The wine list offers up celebrated Italian vintages, and there are a selection of irresistible homemade breads served also.
A truly authentic trattoria in London, Apulia is seconds from historic attractions like the William Wallace Memorial, and only a 3-minute walk from Barbican Tube Station.

Excellent food, very nice interior.

Great meal, we were five persons trying both menu and a la carte: starters, salads, fish, pizzas, meat and deserts with nice wines, and everything was high quality. This nice little restaurant is highly recommended and can be easily reached from Farringdon, Barbican and St Pauls stations.

Really nice friendly restaurant in a relaxing decor style. I don't often have a 3 course but food was so good I pushed myself. The restaurant was very busy and the service a little slow but that's my only criticism. I would certainly visit again and recommend.

Have only been once but first impressions were very positive. Good service, great food and the lunch menu of two courses was extremely good value. I asked for a quiet table and was given one. Restaurant is close to the City, but in a less frenetic environment.
