This is One of the most famous restaurant in the PESCARA province. Unfortunately the name is not coherent with the Quality of the food, but totally aligned with the price. So if you choose this restaurant you will pay for the name. Easily you can find anorher restaurant in the area where you can eat same quality at half price.

The series of hot "antipasti" di mare is close to paradise... and "chitarrina all'astice sgusciato" complete the experience

i went to this spot a dicember evening midweek. Got big choice of fresh fish, lightly cooked, and an astonishing spaghetti alla chitarra garnished with shrimps. Welcome too has been stunning, as well waiters and service. One flaw? No wifi

We ordered the menu presented on the leaflet in the lobby (menu avaible from 9/9 til 19/9). exquisitely fresh and tastefull (fish)food like paintings on a plate. we enjoyed 5 courses for a... More

After 20 some years, I finally asked the owner who the chef is as we were praising him for the consistency of their food all these years. I continued to say I would... More
