Description: L Ristorante Regina Elena is located in the heart of the city just a few steps from the sea, the Director Gianni Olivieri is happy to welcome you in an environment at the same time simple and elegant, with a professional and attentive service but not intrusive, and a free and imaginative cuisine that builds on the combinations of quality fish and unusual ingredients with more than satisfactory results from the point of view of the presentation and taste, which preserves the quality of superfine seafaring tradition, giving birth to lighter dishes but can enhance the flavors and tastes of our land. The food is excellent, the flavors are enhanced and the menu is extensive and fun among the specialties shellfish and fish on the high seas, provided by small local fishing boats from which the restaurant uses in total respect of the quality of the raw material. The winery specializes in the selection of winemakers from Abruzzo but offers a selection of labels of the most renowned wineries in Italy and abroad.

We went here on two occasions, and we very impressed on both occasions. The food and service was excellent throughout. What a delight to experience. I definitely want to come back.

we had a business dinner for 4, the food was good but a lot of things are wrong over there.
eat good food, accompanied by loud music and nonsensical is really horrible. Also forces all the guests of the restaurant to speak aloud. Upon our arrival we were served a 'focaccia' it was cold, what sense does it serve the 'focaccia' in a seafood restaurant? The bread served was fake, not those of old bakery in Pescara. Why not serve immediately two small boiled shrimp as they did afterwards? We waited 20 minutes before someone bring us menus. We got up to go and ask for the menù. The young waiters were unprepared, we were served dishes in a hasty manner and described the dishes very quickly like a lullaby without a soul, it was like eating in a restaurant in a train station. It was missing the presence of the owner near the customer when the dishes were on the table. the recipes of the dishes on the menu too pompous with only the usual expensive famous fishes.

I had only one night to spend in Pescara and did not want to take any chances , so I trusted the advice of TA and went to Regina Elena. Everything went as described by the other reviewers: free sparkling wine , excellent service. I tried the Top degustation menu (55€) and my god it was delicious. I only had two glasses of wine so the boss said they would be on the house. What more can I say?

Being the number 1 restaurant in Pescara we were already "warned" about this place but it is totally deserved. Great food, great service and a lovely interior.
We took the "Top" menu which was à great choice. If you go to Pescara you should definitely try this restaurant.

We have been visiting Italy for 30 years and in fact now we have a home outside Pescara. One of our top priority in traveling and in life is the great gourmet food. After years of eating hundreds of restaurants in the area we finally decided at our last visit in July that the Regina Elena Restraurant is the best fish restraurant in Pescara. The food from appetizers to the last drop in the espresso is excellent, delicious, refined at highest quality. The service and the decor definitely complements the food. The director is extremely courteous, knowledgeable , helpful with your choices.
Each time we eat there I can not help but wonder why this place ISN'T MICHELIN STARRED at all!!!
