We ate here during our stay in Santo Stefano di Sessanio. The atmosphere is wonderful - simple furnishings, delicious home-cooked food, friendly service, the best house wine we had on our trip, and very reasonably priced. We enjoyed the food so much that we returned to eat a second time. Carmelio was very happy to see us return, treating us as if we were family. I especially liked the chitarra (spaghetti) with zucchini and sausage, the smarmoza (grilled cheese), the chicory, and the lamb was the best I've eaten. Also try the local liqueurs! For 4 of us, we payed €65 for 4 primi, 2 secondi, 2 contorni, water, wine, coffee and liqueur.
I definitely recommend the restaurant and would be keen to stay here if visiting the village again. We also heard that the lentil soup was amazing but we didn't try it.
