We have visited this restaurant many times. On this visit we stood waiting to be seated but we were ignored for 10 minutes. Lots of tables available but I would echo the last review... foreigners ignored. Not acknowledged at all. Very rude owner and shouting at his staff and arguing with a customer.

My husband and I with his old parents went inside of this restaurant there were many free tables but a waiter in really poor English told us that there were no tables for 4.
Fat lie one table for 4 was free but he said that was reserved and he didnot want to put together 2 tables of 2 in order to adjust us and told us that if he put two tables together people couldnt walk around...so not true, there was enough space.
Incredibly he let to sit at the table in discussion an Italian couple that were in line after us. He literary didn’t let us ( the foreigners ) to stay inside. He went outside and suggest us to go to another restaurant. It’s a first place in my life when Italian acting very racist. That’s very shame for Italians.
In case if you want to go please remember to bring cash because on the door was a signal that they don’t accept the credit cards.

In the jewel town os Santo Stefano you will find this wonderful family operated establishment. The town is known for their Lentil Soap...a must to experience and the pasta " all chitarra" with mushrooms is perfectly prepared, a traditional pasta dish in the Abruzzi area.

We were staying at Sextantio hotel nearby and went here whilst exploring the area. Pasta was great, meat was very good. We got a table easy and with no fuss. The menu was in both Italian and English. We recommended this to some other tourists within 30 seconds of leaving!

we have visited Santa di Stefano on many occasions, but it is only on our last 2 visits that we have found this wonderful little restaurant. It is situated on the edge of town, on a car park....but it is a clean, quirky, good food venue. At a good price!....
