The Restaurant has only one opening and if you blink you miss it. This was a little hidden gem and the food was exquisite. You have to try the Antipasta, it was amazing. I could have solely lived on that. Family run business and all...More

Located just near the Porta San’Antonio, you will get a true sense of the local food of Sulmona. Most notably, you can choose from a buffet offering a variety of local dishes ranging from various treatments of zucchini, aubergines, red peppers, mushrooms and minced veal...More

Without doubt the best antipasto buffet I’ve ever had. An Italian American friend with me said that the flavors were those of her childhood. We followed,that with delicious pasta. Great for vegetarians.

Family style food at its best. The antipasti buffet was wonderful. I counted 17 choices at the buffet. My husband ordered lamb castrata and said it was the best. My bistecca maiale (pork chop) was grilled and delightful, like my mom used to make in...More

This is what an Italian family osteria should be like. The pasta was perfect Pappardelle with rabbit, lamb chops(unbelievable),turkey filet with mushrooms (succulent). The service was exceptional. This is my opinion despite a couple of screaming kids near us.

The owner is really welcoming and warming and tries to make you feel satisfied in every way. The dishes are really handmade by the owner’s mother and you can taste it. The only missing point in this restaurant is lack of better marketing approach as...More
