“Eating with la familigia Tarullo”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2013

For family cooking and sweet hospitality Il Vecchio Molino is optimal. The fresh pasta is well made- try the ravioli with fresh ricotta and a sauce of zucchini and Abruzzese saffron. Wonderful lamb, fresh vegetables and a rich coffee with local liqueurs should fill the corners to the max. Also an offering of home made biscotti. On a sunny day, take your time and watch the world go by on the terrace in the heart of Scanno. Cheers!

“Attractive restaurant with well prepared local food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant features a wood fired oven, home made pastas, locally sourced cheeses, meat, and salume. Contorni are fresh and beautifully prepared. Portions are very generous and food and wine reasonably priced.

“Very good restaurant in Scanno”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

We stopped in Scanno for a few hours while travelling through Abruzzo. Our guide book recommended another restaurant which seems to have closed quite recently . We were lucky enough to continue on to this restaurant which has a very pleasant terrazo.

We had a simple but terrific lunch: lovely antipasta (fine cheeses, prosciutto etc), good bread, great pasta. The bill was very reasonable. Service is very attentive and the staff exude a quiet sense of pride in their restaurant.

Scanno is an amazing place, by the way, and incredibly photogenic. Could have stayed much longer.

“Authentic local cuisine - excellent value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

I have been back a few times to this restaurant located in central Scanno. The outside terrace gives the impression of an older style rustic pizzeria however inside the restaurant has a nice cozy atmosphere. The food is superb. Living in Amsterdam where the restaurant food prices very seldom reflect the quality of the food or service, the quality here is excellent. The cheeses are all locally produced, the lamb is biological and local. In season you get fresh black truffle shaved on homemade pasta. I had the mixed grill (again) - really good. Pizza is also excellent. This is a family owned restaurant and you can see the pride reflected in the service and the food. Also a good selection of Montepulciano wines as well.

“A variant of pasta e fagioli”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2012

It is a nice place with small rooms with free wifi! They have pasta e fagioli (beans) where they use also potetoes to thick the soup! They also haves typical antipasti with cheese made by a company of Scanno very interesting! From mozzarella cheese to ricotta and seasoned hard pecorino cheese! But also pizza can be eaten! The wine is ok!
