Local place on the boulevard where the locals come. Specialized in seafood, which was very good. Fresh and high quality. Modest prices.

Suggested by a local, I have tried this restaurant for lunch during a business trip. Place is not really inspiring but close to the port, the beach and the city center. Ordered pasta with shrimps which was served after 25 minutes. Pasta was overcooked with … invisible shrimps. Worst of all it was very oily. I can say that at... More

If you want the freshest fish or seafood in Pescara, go to this unpretentious trattoria on Lungomare also patronized by locals.. We had the best seafood meal in a long time, at incredible cheap prices. The management owns 2 fishing boats thus guaranteing that what you eat is right out of the ocean. Plus the service is so nice. I... More

I recently went to Murena when I was in Pescara on a business trip. We were fortunately with a local resident who clearly knew the owner and so we had the most wonderful service and food. We didn't see any menus, we essentially got what I would describe as a 'tasting menu' of seafood - dishes just kept coming: prawns,... More

We have been to this local fish restaurant some five to ten times. It's very genuine, good fish, always full of people. Be aware that the service can be viewed as maybe nonchalant. But don't care to much it's just how the style is.

I always enjoy this restaurant which offers fresh seafood anytime i go. I like to take complete appetizers and normally a risotto or some pasta specials. The owner is the same from thirty years,that's a guarantee of excellence.

This restaurant is a no frills affair, served in a homely and lively place, the fish is terrific. They only do fish, but there is a very wide choice, shellfish included. The wine selection is mainly white, but extensive, we went for the house white a really good local Chardonnay. Our food, scampi gnocchi, seafood risotto and fish stew was... More
