The best restaurant in Abruzzo. In fact one of the best on the Adria coast. In my over 10 years here it is really the best. Bravo Genaro and the team

You are in Abruzzi for your holidays, and would like to eat the catch of the day? Vecchia Marina is The place. A nice garden, with tables, or the inside : ask for Antipasti, you'll get 7-8 different dishes, some raw, some cooked. Order something else only after you ate all of them, you'll probably skip everything but the dessert!... More

The fish is very fresh and prepared simply according to traditional receipts. You can eat it alone or prepared with different kind of pasta. Pasta is excellent and prepared very much 'al dente', even more 'al dente' than in other Italian regions, but this is the way it is eaten in Abruzzo. This is not a fancy restaurant but a... More

My wife and I had lunch there, maybe the 3rd or 4th time that we have eaten here. Having previously struggled through very large and varied anti-pasto, we skipped that, moving straight to pasta and then a main course. Had a roast whole fish, expertly filleted, with wonderful roast potatoes. This is the second review I have posted for here,... More

We were in a large group with friends and some children on a busy day. Food, wine and service have been excellent again and we look forward to our next visit.

1. We arrived at 12.15PM, which is the opening time published on Tripadvisor. We were told to wait outside on the street until 12.30. 2. At 12.35 we were seated. Nobody showed up to take the order until 12.45PM 3. At 12.45 - after chatting to his friends at another table - the owner finally showed up at out table.... More

No menu, don't listen too much to what you want but instead bring dozens of different sea species to your table. Everything is pretty well done, but you have to love all seafood to love the place. Not for veggies or carbs fans, mostly sea protein. Somewhat difficult to stop the flow of food. Reasonably priced, though.

Excellent seafood and fish, a lovely (and innovative) dessert, wonderful white wine, and good service. Only improvement could have been better air con in the midst of the hottest July in the last 70 years. Pasta dishes were great, and the shellfish had been shelled before cooking. Pedantic maybe, but whilst I like shellfish, I don't like fiddling with it... More

Out of season, the seafront at Roseto is quiet, but even in the depths of winter, the Vecchia Marina is buzzing for lunch. And it's soon clear why. We were having the only seafood meal of our holiday (in the summer we live on the stuff, but in winter it tends to be more hearty mountain fare we go for),... More
