My girlfriend and I arrived in Pescara at our hotel around 10pm on a Wednesday and were hungry, so we were very happy to see that this place was open late then. We showed up in crappy looking travel gear but were welcomed with open arms. We can speak enough Italian to get and order things, but the wait staff... More

I have been there at dinner with family and some friends. We had a reservation and we called to inform we were about 15 minutes late. When we arrived (8 minutes late!) they gave away the table and the owner was extremely rude. We waited a while, but not much as around 9.00 pm the place was nearly empty. Food... More

Hi Sara, our restaurant is Il Diavolo e l'Acqua Santa c/o il Belvedere di Colle Renazzo, placed on the hill of Pescara, called San Silvestro. We are sure that you are talking about another restaurant, because we don't remember your reservation and your family. We'll wait you to taste our dish. See you soon More

Very quiet when we showed up at 9pm on a Thursday without a booking, but friendly and helpful service. We loved the house wine and the Tagliata with pecorino and truffle oil!

This is probably the place to be if you love good good and good wine. Had the beef carpaccio as starter, excellent, tender, delicious with a nutty finish. Shared a special gnocchi of the day with eggplant pure and pecorino cheese, cooked to perfection with a balanced flavor. Had two of the tagliata, one with Lardo di colonnata e noci... More

Diavolo Aqua Santa, a wonderful view of the city and valley below. There were a few tables for couples as most of the restaurant was given over to an 18th birthday celebration. The owner was very friendly and helpful. He was born in New York but moved back to Italy with his Italian parents when he was nine years old.... More

The restaurant is the best in Pescara. Food is fresh and testy, service perfect. The atmosphere is sophisticate and even suitable for children, there is a discret playground at the center of the square. The price is convenient (about 30 euro included a very good wine, if you eat meat).
