Visited restaurant as read great reviews on TA. Not disappointed, had the 'Easy" menu... Not easy, waiter told us he would bring many courses and we were to eat what we liked, problem was, everything was amazing including the free Limoncello! Fantastic hospitality- can highly recommend a visit. Thank you Gianni for a wonderful evening

After reviewing the feedbacks on Tripadvisor, we were really curious about this restaurant. There are 3 menus to experiment the Chef specialties and we choose the simplest one...it was absolutely delightful! Everything or so is made with fish and/or sea food and is very fresh. From the moment we arrived until we left, the staff (including the manager himself) was... More

Greeted and seated with a warm and friendly smile from the helpful staff. This restaurant ouzes class and sophistication with it's beautiful modern decor, opulent lighting and candle lit tables. Even little handbag clips for the table .. Very special little touch. Really makes you feel chilled and relaxed especially when your served up a complimentary glass of bubbles whilst... More

My family and I were really disappointed by this restaurant. We were expecting good quality food and friendly atmosphere but it was rather pretentious with a failed attempt to showcase good and well prepared seafood. Hope it gets better, it has potential.

Personally greeted and provided with champagne to sip while looking a the menu. The decor is simple, spacious and inviting. Exceptional service and melt in your mouth dishes. We enjoyed it so much that we spent two evenings at the Regina Elena during a week's business trip. For sure, the best that Pescara has to offer!

It is very unusual for me to return from a dinner around midnight feeling the urge to write a review on Tripadvisor but Regina Elena deserves a 5 star compliment like no other!

I had the tasting menu and while the first few dishes were all wonderful, once the primo piatti began, the chef fell short of what preceeding plates had promised. Gnocchi left something to be desired - they were not the melt in the mouth variety found in other upscale restaurants in Italy, while the branzino was just plain dry and... More
