A project of creative cuisine, inspired by today’s world, takes off in via Giuseppe Bozzi 73, at the heart of the city’s zona umbertina. It is at this site that an art gallery has been hosted for many years.


The restaurant’s idea of cuisine draws on the knowledge and the fusion of southern Italian and Japanese culture. The geographic features gradually give way to allow the technique and inspiration to take precedence, which can be traced back to the experience acquired internationally by the creative minds in the kitchen.


Mr Nicola Ricci, chef and proprietor, was born in Bari and made his debut in professional kitchens alongside Japanese sushi master chefs who, from the outset, aroused his enthusiasm and instilled in him the discipline that is typical of Asian cuisine. His gastronomic interests include, in particular, experimenting with ingredients, which are enriched and transformed. However, he always respects the traditional technique without ever distorting or misinterpreting it.
Although Italy and Japan are geographically distant, in culinary terms they are surprisingly close, and the concept of fusion can be appreciated in all courses.


Vettor, whose name is associated with the memory of Vettor Pisani (artist and architect, Bari 1935 - Rome 2011), prides itself on being a place of culture. A masterpiece created on paper, emerging from his most intimate production, is on permanent display in the central room.
The restrooms have been designed as a neutral and timeless space, characterised by the ceramic artwork of FACON-FACON, a project created by French artists Sarah Jerome and Gael Davrinche, whose visual art experience has resulted in self-produced design.
The restaurant’s bar regularly hosts large-format masterpieces created by artists invited to exhibit a significant piece from their collections.
The project, curated by Michele Spinelli, collector and former art gallery manager, can be appreciated also from its external appearance and creates a bridge between interior spaces and the city’s architecture.
Born in Boston and brought up in New York, Jamie Sneider has been asked to start the project. Now Apulian by adoption, she has recently opened a gallery/home for artists at the heartof Lecce.


The architectural and interior design is the fruit of the work of Simone Esposito, an architect who, after gaining experience in France and South America, now works primarily in Apulia.
