Importantly for us tourists to appreciate is this is a local restaurant first - local friends, couples and families eat here, including their children & indeed grandchildren. And it appears the locals prefer other than Italian music with their meals. Us tourists here are mostly Italian, including families at this time in July. We enjoyed eating dinner here twice.

This restaurant was packed on the Sunday evening we visited, maybe because a lot of restaurants were closed. It was too cold and wet to take advantage of the outdoor seating, which was a shame as it was a bit brightly lit and lacking atmosphere inside. Service was generally slow (to order, get a drink, get the bill) but the... More

The pizzas we had didn't measure up to others we have had in Italy. However, the food and wine was reasonably priced and the staff was welcoming and efficient.

Our hotel recommended us to go there and made the reservation. We stopped in on a Thursday night and ate in the covered terrace near the fireplace. The two of us shared a large antipasto of meats and cheeses, and it was delicious. I followed it with pacchero pasta with honey and bacon, which was unlike anything I had before... More

Good traditional dinner food, sitting outside under the pergola. We arrived around 7.45-8, beating the locals we had the run of the place. Very good pastas. The arrosticini were good, but nothing to write home about. Not the cheapest place where you can find good food in Abruzzo.

Great menu and recommended by the owner of the B&B this was perfect Sunday night fate when most places are closed. Just off the Main Street this place was a carnivore delight and great pasta and pizzas.

We were fortunate that we are on Americano dining schedule and showed up minutes before main dinner opening at 8 pm. By 8:30 the indoor and courtyard areas were full (off season, so a local crowd)and the wait staff were stressed The back dining room lights were very bright -- too bright really. Having said that, our dinners were very... More

Went with a group of about 12 on a rainy Sunday night and we ordered a variety of wood-fired pizzas and salads to share. So many different combinations on the menu, including many unfamiliar to us Americans. We ate way too much because we had to try everything! It was memorable.

Arrived at 8 pm (when they open) seated in outside courtyard, servers blasting Queen's Greatest Hits on the CD player. Hoping for something Italian or more soothing but as the restaurant filled up they eventually turned the volume down. A few large parties with hungry & loud children arrived. We shared a Caprese salad - served on a bed of... More
