Went mid week so it was not too busy, fortunate as we hadn't booked a table. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff who were happy to join in with a little cheeky humour of their own. We picked from the set menu as it was good value. To begin they gave all of us a free mini starter of marinated bread... More

Dal 1980 tradizione, ricerca e mattita' The food is excellent. The service is prompt. I highly recommend the Fellata of Abruzzo. The website details the food and has some great recipes. The family we visited that traveled with us loved the food. That's a great sign.

However i went back with my visiting parents for a birthday meal, and they decided to have the tasting menu. It was truly incredible.... More

The reviews of this restaurant and the recommendations from our hotel concierge meant that we thought we were onto a winner. Unfortunately the service and the food were both average, at best. I ordered the barley risotto with seasonal greens and pesto, whilst my husband ordered the lasagne with meat sauce. The barley risotto was tasty, but the lasagne came... More

The Abbruzo region is famous for it's food. It's a family run business and they're proud of their food and the ambiance is comfortable and welcoming. It's in the old town; outside they have a display of some of the finds from an archaeological dig a few years back. The original barrel ceilings downstairs are impressive, The platter for two...

A fantastic restaurant in the old part of Pescara. It serves traditional regional food with excellent quality ingredients. The star of the show, however, is the antipasti selection, which is absolutely not to be missed. My only complaint would be that they overcook the meat in the second course, but in Abruzzo all meat is served well-done, and trying to... More

Went here on a recommendation from our hotel and after checking reviews on TA, the starter - Antipasti for two, was HUGE and great... We asked the leftovers to be packed to travel and the owner/manager went out of his way. The house wine was great and the price was right as well. I'd do it all over tomorrow if... More

Taverna 58 is located n the beautiful Old Town section of Pescara. This is old world service that you do not experience in North America except perhaps at very expensive restaurants. A wonderful atmosphere, beautifully served by a friendly and warm staff. Some of the dishes are preprepared at your table by the very congenial owner. My wife and I... More

This restaurant is set in the old historical heart of Pescara. I will always remember an amazing dish of fresh tagliatelle pasta with truffle and porcini mushrooms and a salad where I could taste all the different herbs from the field and a chocolate dessert to die for. This was one of the best dining experiences of our month stay... More

But as you could imagine, it comes with a high price tag! good food, nice experience elengant ambience, worth it! Very famous and big place but with a cozy feeling, the ilumination is perfect and the wine form the Abruzzio region can be a little expensive with no reason since there is a ton of local wineries around. The plate... More
