“really nice trattoria”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Food was excellent. Service was excellent. Highly recommend. This is a true Abbruzzese trattoria. The owners of the B &B whereI stayed told me that this establishment was favored by the local population. The prices were reasonable too.

“a hidden treasure in the old "vie" of the historic center.”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Walking in the street of the old historic center of Histonium ( name given to Vasto during the roman period ), twosteps away from the cathedral in Roman style , you can find this little hidden trattoria.
The inner is decorated with pictures from italian singers and people from the show world
What we have always appreciated in this little place, was the simplicity of the welcome and the genuinity of the dishes.
It is one of the few restaurant where you can find fried/fresg vegetables ( cime di rape , catalogna , cicorea , etc )
Do not come here to drink , some Chateau Lafitte or Mouton Rotschild, no , don't come if you are looking for this kind of places , i would even say , stay away,
Here you will find some traditional dish from the Abbruzzese cooking ( the real one , not the one for tourists).
I won't tell you more, but i can ensure you, you will lick your fingers.
