The business also should be listed by TripAdvisor as a restaurant. We groped around Poggiardo for a place to have lunch, and asked the locals where we should eat instead. Two of two strongly recommended Tesoretto, almost always the best indication. While we have a predilection against hotel restaurants as stuffy, the proprietor and staff bent over backwards to make our meal pleasant and the food was stellar. The spaghettoni c frutti di mare was over-the-top excellent, fresh seafood and a delicious sauce. The plate of grilled contorni was tasty. The selection of 7-8 beers on tap was impressive. While prototypical of a hotel restaurant, not brightly lit, well air-conditioned, it was quiet and comfortable, a respite from the sweltering August outside; the seating outside should be wonderful after the sun sets.
