Indeed a nice dinner experience on this trabocco. The menu is fixed and comes with a foul round as per the Italian tradition: starters, main course, second course, fruit and dessert, all with wine. The cost per person is €50 per person and it's a bargain considering the location and the quality of the food. The menu varies daily according... More

A bit hard to find, maybe due to our difficulty understanding directions, but we were impressed with the setting...a walk along the dock, beautiful view of the coastline, the movement of the water, the lines of the Nets hanging from the building. we came in on the coattails of an Italian touring group and so enjoyed their liveliness and singing...

The place is amazing. The sitting at the sea, the personal. The food is fresh, nice wine. It is really an experience. 2 things I do not like there was a terrible show with loud music. We did not know they would do that. The owner should have told us before. It was not the evening for us to look... More

We stopped in for wine and dessert only. 19 people and they seated us with a great view quickly. The service was quick and outstanding for our big party. The lemon slush we had was magnificent and hit the spot on a hot day. Great views!

We went here for dinner with friends to celebrate a wedding anniversary. There is an instant wow factor as you arrive, it really is set in the most stunning setting. The food was plentiful and we ate fish for over four hours, drinking fine bottled wine, we even had a non fish eating member in our party and they catered... More

Eating at Trabocco Pesce Palombo is quite a thrill. You are sitting right above the sea, with a nice view toward the shore. They serve a 10 course meal, all but the last course consisting of fish. Though not exquisite, the food is good, of local cuisine and is moderately priced. We found it quite an experience. It is not... More

We had been longing to eat on a Trabocco and what a find this restaurant was. We weren't sure what we would be served, but a feast from the ocean was served to our table by way of 10 courses. All of the dishes were freshly prepared in the smallest, busiest kitchen we've ever seen and each course tasted amazing.... More

It's such a shame that foreign visitors to Italy so seldom go to Abruzzo: there wasn't even a chapter on this incredible province in a recent Frommers (!) guidebook I was leafing through at a bookstore prior to my trip. But it's great for those in the know.....we have it mostly to ourselves. My brother and I stopped in with... More
