Have eaten in this restaurant many times in the last 3 years and never been disappointed. Always receive good portions and well prepared dishes. Wine is excellent and well priced, pasta and meat dishes(especially the mixed grill) are delicious and chips are best ever. Nice atmosphere.

The food was good...not fantastic, but tasty. The restaurant overall was extremely noisy.( maybe due to a holiday weekend, maybe not) We were seated upstairs, which echoed conversations like loud speakers. The couple sitting next to us were so agitated by the noise they left in haste. Would like to know if it is always so loud, or if that... More

Spettacolari straccetti alla rucola (?) with the grilled lamb skewers, pizza, salad - so good!!! We did have to return a bottle of wine that was spoiled, but no questions, no problem. Typical Italian service - nobody hovering over you trying to turn over the table like you get too often in the U.S. - be patient and enjoy the... More

Average place ... No more no less . OK if you really need to eat and this is the only option , otherwise look elsewhere. Pizza is served only at evening ... And we ate at lunch .

Lovely restaurant with great food, excellent service and very attentive service. An outside terrace makes it specially attractive.

We went to this place are one night in Sulmona as it was right across from where we were staying. It was very busy with people. The food (pizza) was very good and there where lots of different kinds. The service was good considering how busy it was, slow but normal for Italy. The prices where very reasonable compared to... More

We were referred to VM by Gianluca at the Hotel Rojan and, as always, he is very particular about where he sends his guests. Vecchio Muro was terrific, a lovely outside setting with excellent wood-fired pizza. Many other dishes as well, but we were there for the "Za". For the cooler months, the inside would be a warm and welcomed... More

On a business trip, I went there with my customer. We had a really good moment. Service is really Ok, people always ready to help you. The home made pasta are fantastic. I saw some really nice pizza passing in front of me. It is better to reserve in advance in order to be sure to have a table.

Enjoyed the fact that their pasta is home made, and their caccio è peppe is excellent served in a Parmesan shell. Their arrosticini, a local Abruzzo speciality, lamb skewers, was also good. The pizza good too, but unless you are in for a long evening, it certainly isn't a fast service restaurant. Maybe because it is always very busy!

The owner of our hotel recommended this restaurant as we were longing for pizza on our last night in Italy. The four of us all ordered different pizzas and all were delicious. Price of food and wine was very reasonable and the garden seating was lovely.
