Unsophisticated good food

Right at the entrance of the beautiful town of Pescocostanzo, a jewel of the Renaissance and Baroque period, close to the now destroyed city of Aquila in the Abruzzo's mountains, is located the restaurant Tre Frati. Two large crowed rooms, a newer one with rather bad acoustic. The food is good... read more

What more can I say? The food here is fabulous. A combination of subtle flavours and bravura cooking. When I first saw "chocolate flavoured" pasta on the menu I was slightly suspicious, but was reassured by the charming owner that I would like it. He was spot on... it was extraordinary! Accompanied by a beautifully creamy sauce, the dish was... More

As we are making it our mission to try out the many towns and village restaurants within a comfortable drive from Villa di Stelle, it was Pescocostanzo today. We were recommended the restaurant by a local person. The decor is simple and light with vaulted ceilings. The pasta (which we eat a lot of here) was one of the most... More

I've had some of the best pasta of my life (and I'm Italian). Friendly service, and good wine, but the fresh pasta with pecorino won the day.

A must see town in the mountain region ( Maiella) of Abruzzo. We had lunch at great little spot called Ristorante Frati. I recommend the pasta made in house using an old ancient method called e la chitarra for the first plate and the grilled lamb and sausage on real coals.. They also have 7 rooms for rent and would...

Limitation of this site is that can only score average or very good, and this was somewhere in between! Great antipasti and pasta(mixed cured meats and excellent cheeses, local pasta with truffles and with a courgette puree), but the meat course simply comprised huge quantities of meat which we found offputting (lamb chops and beef pieces with rucola). In Abruzzo,... More
