Rocco Iannone, authentic cuisine, old wisdom and great talent

Dining at Rocco Iannone is one-of-a-kind experience everyone should allow himself at least once in life.

Chef Rocco Iannone has real respect about the Italian gastronomic tradition and products. His restaurant is starred at Michelin Guide, but unaffectedly. And his food - Madonna mia, his food - is a sucessful result of his passion for cooking and his obstinacy for finding the freshest and more authentic ingredients from Campaign Region. If you feel it's important, as... More

I've been in Pappacarbone September 14. Rocco the 'cuoco' and the owner is an amazing person, very kind, full of taste and authentic. We had the full menu and since appetiser to dessert it was delicious with a good local wine choice.

During our Christmas trip to the South of Italy, my girlfriend and I decided to have lunch at Pappacarbone. The first thing we noticed when we arrived was the kind and friendly greeting, which was in fluent English. We were presented with a menu written in both Italian and English. Shortly after ordering, the dishes were beautifully presented by waitress,... More

The food equals the experience of eating italian in the backlands of Croatia (no offense). Uninspired and dull courses are served with no understanding of the marvelous raw products of the region. A tenth of the asked price might be a fair share; but in this case I would advise to go someplace - anyplace else!
