We walked in to this restaurant on Easter Sunday after a walk. We were welcomed and a table found. Because it was Easter there was a set menu, that consisted of an amazing antipasti course with half the salami, cheese and bread in Italy! then two pasta courses each perfect. Followed by beautifully cooked lamb. About fit to burst, but... More

We stayed two nights as part of a trip through the Abruzze vilages and had amazing food there. Local dishes with fresh, seasonal ingredients cooked perfectly. Looking back, the best we had in this whole trip. Great hospitality. The lago is a nearby pond and you get a free frogs concert every evening.

Words are hard to express the gratitude that we felt for the staff at the La Locanda Sul Lago. The environment when we first arrived was warm and welcoming as we were tired, wet, and cold from traveling in the rain. The rooms were pleasant and clean. The breakfast was prompt and delicious as well. The true service of the... More

La Locanda perfectly fits the definition of idyllic - it is a happy, peaceful and picturesque place, located a short walk from the small, medieval town of Santo Stefano di Sessanio. My wife and I spent our first 4 nights in Italy at La Locanda and hated to leave. The setting is gorgeous, surrounded by the mountains of the Gran... More

We had dinner here after recommendations from locals. It was during the Christmas holidays and the restaurant was completely empty apart from us, but nonetheless the atmosphere was enjoyable, the service very good and the food and wine delicious. We also enjoyed that the menu was more extensive and varied than other eateries in the village. The highlights were the... More

We had a lunch and a dinner here. Great food and great service. The only reason why we didn't give a score of 5 is because we've had better food in Italy. However, if you're in the area you should not miss out on this place. Everything is fresh and locally grown.

I stayed here as part of a photography tour in the Abruzzo region. The food at the restaurant was amazing and the hosts so welcoming. The rooms were lovely and exceptionally clean. Although not an issue for me, the bathroom in my room was slightly small, I only mention it in case this is of concern for others. Short walk... More

This B and B is outside of the town, just a five minute walk. It is such a cute little place to stay with a great view of the beautiful town from some of the rooms. The rooms are basic but cosy. The host, Giacomo is lovely but doesn't stay in the house. Our first night we had the whole... More

We stayed here in April 2011 - just over two years after the dreadful earthquake that did so much damage, especially in L'Aquila. For this reason we were a bit doubtful about choosing to stay here. We need not have worried - it was a thoroughly enjoyable visit to a beautiful part of Italy. We loved it, leaving with the... More
