A delightful dining experience

After a morning at Frasassi caves, we were searching for a restaurant for lunch and everything appeared to be closed. We met a lovely woman in the parking lot who recommended Da Maria and we are so glad we gave it a try. Warm family atmosphere,fabulous local food including fish from the lake.

The drive up to the Da Maria is spectacular... The friendliness of the place and the food were both outstanding... A real treat of authentic traditional no nonsense Italian cuisine... We loved it. Excellent value... Thank you 😀

When visiting Frasassi caves, or the new "Parco Avventura" on the river Sentino, take a break and go eat at "Da Maria". You will find local cuisine at its best. I would recommend "antipasti misti" and "pappardelle al cinghiale". If not enough, go for a "grigliata mista". After all of that, have a walk nearby. You would have earned it.

Located in wonderful surroundings with spectacular view down the valley, they prepare fantastic food. The selection in the menu has several local specialties and the truffles of season is always represented. The raviolini with truffles was outstanding!

This was an amazing dining experience in a beautiful mountain-top village. We asked Gabriella to tell the chef we felt as if we had died and gone to heaven after eating our three-course meal. We started with Fonduta Assortita (assorted cheese fondue - plain cheese, mushroom and minced truffles). It was better than we could have ever imagined. For our... More

We were staying in Cerreto d'Esi and were given a "flyer" in the car park for the Frasassi Caves. Based on the list of dishes we decided to try this place for dinner and it was worth the drive. We arrived early but more diners arrived gradually during the evening, and we think that they were locals. The food was... More

Excellent local food with average prices. We were three and had many different courses, all of them well presented and with the taste you would expect in a traditional restaurant. Suggested to everybody!

We visited the place after Caves of Frasassi. We asked our gide to recommend some good place, but she refused to promote any venue. Then we told that we are new in this place and we just want to eat good and she said that Da Maria was a good place to eat. And it was! I have never seen... More
