I have visited this restaurant several times now, as the food is one of the best in Sulmona in my view. However the service is poor. At our last meal, I ordered a pizza and I was the only one of a party of 6 to order pizza. The other 5 meals arrived in due course, but not the pizza.... More

We were recommended this restaurant by a friend from home and we tried to get in without a booking and we did. It was a very busy night and some of the tables around us turned over two and three times. We had a beautiful meal just watch the antipasto order because it just keeps coming. Main meals were lovely... More

The patios are the place to dine in the mid summer evenings. The house wine was a local Abruzzo vintage and was excellent. The pizzas were fine.

Visited here as part of my three week trip travelling through Italia. Sulmona is a beautiful village hosting a festival in July . The food at this restaurant was fantastic and my review would have been 5 stars if the service hadn't been so bad . We ordered bread - it didn't come. We asked for the desert menu twice... More

Pasta dishes were fresh and delicious, however, we were ignored for long periods and we asked for desserts and they didn't even bring a menu until reminded half an hour later. The waiter was too busy smoking in the garden! So we left after two hours only having pasta and drinks.

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. Arriving... More

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.
