Born in 2013 from the amazing intuition of Diego Melorio and Andrea Carlucci in the middle of Lecce town centre, Quantobasta is the first real street cocktail bar of the city.

It climbed the most coveted national rankings, becoming a point of reference for mixing all over Italy in no time. It is attended for its casual cordiality, recommended for its quick and brilliant service, loved for its always up-to-date drinklist. 

Quantobasta is characterised by a street urban dimension that goes beyond the 37 sqm of the bar, spreading and adapting perfectly to the surrounding historical setting. Throughout 10 years, Quantobasta has created a real way of understanding the pleasure of meeting, enjoyment and fine drinking, becoming locals' favourite place as well as an unmissable destination for all those cool tourists who come and visit Puglia and Salento looking for a famous and quality experience.

Among the many important awards, some stand out more than others: the place into the Top 500 Bars, the Best cocktail bar of the year award (2015) and the several Bargiornale awards for the Best Bar Team of the year (in 2019 and in 2022) that confirm the exceptional harmony of the work team now composed of 14 young members, each one characterised by a human and professional approach that can captivate and retain customers because of their training and friendliness.


45 years old, distinctive style and overwhelming passion. He is Quantobasta founding member (together with Andrea Carlucci) who has transformed the bar in a real quality and conviviality label over the years. The desire to experiment and suggest always new combinations does not abandon him since the first day he ever set foot behind a counter.

He will perform together with Mario Lorusso.
