Reviewed June 18, 2012

Upon arrival to the incredible hilltop town of Vico del Gargano, we were greeted by Giuseppe, our host at Pizzacato Eco B&B. He welcomed us to the apartment which was everything we had hoped for and more. Located within easy walking distance to the main square and the historical center, we made our way to Pizzacato Bar and enjoyed an appertif. Giuseppe is a master mixologist using local ingredients. He shared with us information on restaurants, sites, and local history. Helping us arrange reservations, and making suggestions on the menus, we had incredible meals. The apartment was clean, comfortable, safe and had all of the immenities we needed. We couldn't recommend it any more highly and can't wait to return.

The pizzicato b&b was more than we ever imagined. It's like having a little bit of home in a cozy Italian town. Our host Giuseppe has been a friend and responds to every question and request we have...he set up with cooking classes, our own personal wine-tasting, and has taken time to show us around. And our flat is clean and cute. Thank you G! You've made our stay in Vico a memory we will never forget!

In the past five years, my wife and I have rented apartments from their owners in France, Greece, USA, and elsewhere in Italy, but Pizzacato Eco Bed & Breakfast stands far above even the best of these other rentals. There are four reasons for this. First, and most important, is Giuseppe Romondia. All of the places we rented before were rented from their owners, all of whom, before we arrived, were very friendly and promised us personalized service. Giuseppe Romondia, however, is the only owner to make good on this promise. Usually, after getting our money, the owners disappear. Not Giuseppe. He was always at our service, providing expert advice on restaurants, beaches, wine, in short, anything we desired. Second, the apartment we rented was beautifully decorated and maintained, with a fully equipped kitchen in which we prepared incredible meal after meal, made with the fresh fish, vegetables and fruit, and, of course, cheese and salumi available six days a week at the local market. And then there's the incredible meat, pasta, and bread (the bread is not only the best in Italy, but the best in the world, in our judgment) available in the many shops that populate this quaint town that dates back to the mediaeval period of history. Third, there is the weather, location, and people of Vico del Gargano. The weather in July was perfect. The location, near numerous sandy beaches with the warm, salty, and clear water of Adriatic Sea and incredible national forests, is ideal. And the people: they are friendly, helpful, and always eager to share their knowledge of food, wine, and the local culture. Finally, fourth, there is the value for your money of a vacation at Pizzacato Eco Bed & Breakfast: based on our experience, it is the best value for our money anywhere in Europe, Greece, and the United States. Included in our rental fee was an incredible daily breakfast at the flagship bar owned by, I assume, the Romondia family. Our two week vacation in Vico del Gargano is the first, we are certain, of many more to come.

I heard about this place from a couple of friends, so I decided to come to Vico del Gargano and more specifically to Pizzicate Eco Bed & Breakfast. It was really one of the best holiday experiences in my life.

The wheather was perfect, there were nice wind conditions for the surfing I do and most importantly: I just felt at home. In my eyes mainly due to the friendliness at this B&B and Pizzicato bar, the quality of the products & the service and the easiness of my life there.

I got tips to see the best beaches of Gargano, the best fish restaurants and again, the quality of the food was AMAZING. Need to get back there as soon as possible!!

We were extremely pleased to stay in Pizzicato B&B.

Guiseppe, the proprietor, was quick to answer our questions, arranged a pleasant welcome drink for us once we arrived, and provided much advice about where to go, where to eat, etc.

One of the perks of staying here was having breakfast at the Pizzicato bar downtown, which servers incredible capuccino and cornetti (also known as croissants elsewhere).

Definitely have a look at this place if you're looking for a taste of authentic Italy. The town is located atop a hill, meaning you'll have to go by car to the beaches, but that will also isolate you from the touristy feeling you get in Pescichi, Vieste, or San Menao.

The town itself offers numerous opportunities of eating really, really well, and Guiseppe can give you tips on that.

This was out 5th vacation in Italy and only the 1st on the list of "definitely come back another time". Recommended!

When we arrived in Vico we were immediately drawn to it's small town feel. As soon as we met our host at our bed and breakfast we knew this would be a place we would return to over and over. Guiseppe, our host, was incredible. He had many local connections and used those to make our stay incredibly Italian; the kind of experience you only hear about but never seem to actually have when you go on trips. He showed us the best places to eat and the best sights to see. The bed and breakfast was extremely comfortable. Had its own kitchen, living room, washer, and bikes to use (very helpful in this town!). THe breakfast part of the ned and breakfast was at the associated "pasticceria" was unbelievable. The pastries were the best we had in our 4 week trip in Italy and the gelato was equally as good. Do not pass up a trip to Vico and if you need a place to stay, don't bother with any place else.

Stayed at Pizzicato B&B for a week as a part of my honeymoon to do family history research in Vico del Gargano. Simply put, the stay at Pizzicato was our favorite place on the whole honeymoon. The rooms are simple but colorful and practical. It is very easy to feel at home at Pizzicato. We enjoyed cooking in the kitchen and made use of the washing machine in our room. Wifi access is available, and the patio provides the perfect place to get caught up with email/facebook. The host goes out of his way to make sure your stay in Vico is the best, offering endless advice and help to get you what you want. Breakfast at the Pizzicato Bar is included in the room rate. The Pizzicato Bar rivals any cafe/bar I've ever encountered. The quality of food and drink is top and the environment is energetic. We can't wait to return to Vico and Pizzicato.
