Ferus the Pub

Saturday night we went out for a pizza with friends in Bisceglie (the next town up the Adriatic coast) at "Ferus the Pub." This pizzeria/restaurant/pub is located in a 16th century stone structure that is attached to the Aragonese walls of the local castle. The interior decor is modelled on a medieval look, complete with a suit of armor, crossed lances and bronze shields, phony torches and tapestries on the wall.

I found it strange to be in the sort of imitation historical setting that I would expect to find at...Disneyland let's say. Like, here we are in Italy, pretending to be in...Italy. Hmmm.

In any case, the beer (German) and the grilled meat were very good, but the pizza was only so-so.
