Fabulous garden to enjoy our first dinner in Abruzzo. Delicious pizza and pasta dishes. The service was very friendly. We noticed that many locals were dining there - always a good recommendation.

Thank Deborah P

We walked into this restaurant and thought this will be too expensive for us. It looked like a 5 star restaurant but the prices were very reasonable. Most important, the food was absolutely fantastic. This was our best restaurant in our 30 days in Italy.

We didn't really intend to visit Il Fortino every evening that we were in the area but the excellent welcome and convenient location drew us back (we were staying nearby at La Grande Quercia and this was their recommendation - thanks Russ and Sergio).

To start this review I need to give a warning about portion sizes and the consequences of eating antipasti, a primo, a secondo with contorni and dessert (plus limoncello) - the first night we could hardly stagger away from the table but after that we found out how to pace ourselves. The food was delicious and the free limoncello - benissimo! Best of all though was the help we had from our waiter. Young and with an excellent command of English he described the dishes to us and made us very welcome even though on two of the nights the restuarant was extremely busy. There are pizza's available if you fancy eating something simple and great views out across the countryside from the main room.

If you are near Teramo this is an excellent choice - buon appetito!

Il Fortino is a lovely restaurant overlooking Teramo on one side and the Gran Sasso from the back. Both the interior and exterior are very grand and it gives the impression of having 5 star prices, but that's not the case. Whilst the house antipasto is not cheap at €10,00, one is enough for 2 people, as in addition to the usual meats, cheeses & pickles, the chef prepares a variety of other additional hot dishes and plenty of specialty breads. Primi and secondi consist of the usual pastas and meats and a nice selection of contorni (side orders). A good selection of bottled wines, but the house red (a local Montepulciano) was good enough for us! The place also has a very extensive pizza menu, which are very good too.

Overall, a nice restaurant, although as it caters for big functions (weddings, birthday parties etc), Saturdays can be extremely busy and as a result the service can suffer to the detriment of other diners
