A nice restaurant very nicely presented food and knowledgeable staff. The wine waiter was very patient with our request for local wines; we stayed at the hotel and ate in the restaurant twice. We were a little disappointed that the menu stayed the same on both occasions, we did expect an establishment of this quality, to change the menu to... More

Good food, a starter and main meal, and service with panoramic views. Not cheap but for us well worth the experience

A birthday and a Michelin starred female chef (one of very few!) about 20 minutes drive from where we were staying - it just had to be done! We were greeted by the son of the owner, Pascal, and shown to our table with a view of the beautiful countryside. If it had been a little warmer, I am sure... More

We eat here at least 4 times a year and have done for 13 years or more. It is consistently superb. Every year it becomes a little better. Food is inventive, beautifully served and the wine list is a joy. English is spoken by Pepino's son. One of the best restaurants in Central Italy. Ministers of State from Rome even... More

Had lunch here after a visit to the Masciarelli vineyards. I strongly recommend it. It's a family run kitchen deserving of their Michelin star rating. Food is phenomenal and so is the service.

Originally heard about this restaurant from a Mario Batali story about his favorite restaurants in Italy and we were not disappointed once we finally made our way there. We sat out on the lovely terrace and enjoyed every course. Even though we did not order the degustiazone menu, we were still given several amuse bouches which added greatly to the... More

Went with friends to have a meal in the Michelin star restaurant and stay the night in the hotel. Our room overlooked the countryside which was beautiful, the room was nice but not outstanding. There where issues with the air conditioning which were not totally resolved so we had a rather warm night. The restaurant was lovely we had the... More

Absolute excellence in everything this restaurant does. Quality of produce is top notch and cooking is modern while preserving traditional flavour. Truly deserves its Michelin recognition and at the same time pricing is fair. We will be back.

Seven of us lunched here on a rather dismal day, though they kindly humoured our desire to eat on their terrace (great view)even though they had to re-set an indoor table when it rained. We all had the local menu, which included spelt and barley patties with pork jelly, fantastic breads with pig butter (!), polpetto of cheese and egg... More

We chose Villa Maiella for a meal on the last evening of our holiday and ate on the open terrace as the sun set. We found the service to be brisk and professional but not unfriendly. In fact one of the waiters suggested a better table than we had at first selected and as the evening grew slightly cooler, a... More
