Excellent food, hosts, location and atmosphere. Highly recommend. Locally sourced produce. Superbly cooked. Every course was fabulous. Owners are very welcoming, informative about the food and an excellent chef (and artist) too.

Thanks to friends who brought us here, Rinascimento was clearly the best restaurant meal we had in our 10 day trip to this region. This family owned and operated restaurant is situated overlooking the beautiful hills of Abruzzo. The chef Leonardo and his wife Jaynie pointed out their farm in the distance where they grow all of the produce they... More

This must be our 4th or 5th visit and the welcome we received yet again was like meeting close friends. Once more, wonderfully presented home grown and locally supplied organic produce, a lot of which you can see from the dining terrace growing in their vegetable garden! Each dish beautifully presented and a level of service rare to find. Jaynie... More

Friends highly recommended Rinascimento and booked us in for Sunday lunch as we travelled back to Fiumicino airport. We chose a table on the balcony - and were blown away by the stunning panorama in front of us. We basked, ate and chatted in the afternoon sun, lulled by the tranquility of the setting and the scent of jasmine from... More

We made a return visit to this outstanding restaurant with friends from Nocciano and are delighted to say that it is even better than it was a year ago. Leonardo continues to create sublime food and Jaynie continues to be the perfect hostess. Yet again we left the choice of food to Leonardo and yet again we were treated to... More

We were taken to this restaurant by friends who live nearby. It turned out to be an absolutely fantastic eating experience. The owners are a Canadian lady called Jaynie and an Italian man called Leonardo - A married couple. We ended up spending four hours in the restaurant. At one point we were joined at the table by both Jaynie... More

My Grandfather was from San Demetrio. We went for a visit to see his home town. My wife and I stopped in for a lunch and ended up staying for a while. An experience we will remember for a life time or until we hopefully return :-) I have not had a home made meal like this since my Grandmother... More

Our friends (who are regulars) from Nocciana, Nr Pescara took us for lunch in this lovely restaurant and we found the experience excellent. Owners Leonardo & Jaynie made the experience much more pleasurable with their friendliness and passion for what they were serving. Everything is sourced locally and the views were stunning.
