Nice restaurant. We had a bottle of Crognaleto Santoleri 1998, it was excellent!
We had the antipasto with a variety of salumi and cheeses, with mostarda and honey... WOW. For main dish we had the reccommended pastas, they were all great.
Good price/value, 3 people a bottle of great wine and a lot of food, 115€.

Ristorante Carmine

Reviewed By Balfour S - Durham, North Carolina

After driving quite a distance, we arrived at this non-descript location; but once inside, everything changed. The decor is bright and cheerful (though the light fixtures are a built garish....but in Italy everything is for show, not necessarily function). The staff are excellent -- friendly, helpful, attentive without being in the way (and it is so nice to get fresh flatware for each course...a true refinement). The seafood is prepared with great skill and imagination; you can't seem to go wrong with anything they prepare from the sea. Just be warned that it is a lot to eat: the antipasto was twelve small preparations (including a generous bowl of superb mussels); the grilled fish was a large plate of four items plus an additional assortment of fried items; we had passed on a pasta course, though the kitchen apparently does an excellent seafood pasta too. And we had no room for desert, so I can't comment; but the caffe was wonderful and my friends enjoyed the local liqueur (Genziana).
If you are visiting central Abruzzo, definitely make time to visit Carmine's!

Il Ritrovo d'Abruzzo

Reviewed By EuDiMu - Milano

Abruzzo is a famous region for its delicious culinary traditions...
Having tried several local restaurant I think this place is too much fancy and lost part of the traditional atmosphere of osteria and trattorias here in Abbruzzo...
It is not a place for locals but more for tourists.
The premise is quite new with bright colors and a rustic feeling.. they bring you a huge quantity of appetizers hot and cold. Usually only with starters you're already fine...cause it is a huge quantity, but ifr you want have a main course they offer several options of veals and steaks..
Price..around 40 per person included wine.
A little but pricey and too fancy for what they offer...

Regina Elena

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 into this restaurant because they offered express lunch. What a great meal. All was included in the price. We had the most delicious octopus starter. Pasta for main and tiramisu for dessert. Sparkling wine was served together with all courses.

Villa Maiella

Reviewed By Chinthurst18 - Guildford

We ate the menu with a wine chosen for each course. Everything was beautifully presented and explained in English! The wines matched the food perfectly and the whole experience was wonderful. The October weather meant that eating on the Terrace was not an option, but the views from it are stunning.

Taverna Ducale

Reviewed By martin j - London, United Kingdom

Under new management/ownership, the interior sympathetically and tastefully restored. Enjoyed a fabulous evening meal with fantastic service at a more than reasonable price. Have been visiting Caramanico for several years and this is some of the best food we've had whilst there. Attentive, friendly staff, relaxing surroundings and staff can't do enough for you. Hot antipasto especially good as were the complimentary after dinner shots! Will definitely be dining here on all future trips. Highly recommended.

Ristorante La Bandiera

Reviewed By Ana C - New York

Abruzzo is a wonderful region in Italy! From the people, the various mountain ranges, the long coast in the Adriatic, the art, the culture to the amazing gastronomy!
Nested in the gorgeous hills in the Pescara province, you find this perfect Micheline starred ristorante & relais La Bandiera.
The Spadone family, a dynasty of chefs (father Marcello, son Mattia in the kitchen) & son Alessio in ristorante, offers you a magical meal filled with the perfect balance of fantasy in the display of every dish, the full but subtle flavors, the elegant rendering of traditional & local staples with the perfect pairing with the wonderful Spumante & wines from the Pescara & Chieti wine regions.
We had the "5-piatti-Degustazione" (5 course dinner)- although they also offer the 7 course & a la Carte. We had also the additional wine pairing: very worth while. There's a great relation between value & price considering the quality of food, wines & service.
They also offer home-made gluten-free pasta & bread, & vegetarian dishes.
We recommend to either go for lunch, or go for dinner if staying overnight in order to admire the beautiful scenery & surroundings.
The place has also a beautiful Terrace with a pool, a great location to enjoy the drinks & desserts.
A must place to visit in any trip to Abruzzo (about 2.5 hours east of Rome).

This place along the ss652 road is excellent. Overlook the quasi-modern look of the hotel/restaurant and focus on the good old traditional Abruzzese cuisine, it's great. By the way, the portions are enormous. The prices are very reasonable.

Reviewed By LocalHerotwo - New York City, New York

This restaurant is unlike any you will probably ever get to experience. One look at any of the pictures and you can see that. Floating above the Adriatic, balanced on stilts, is this remarkable seafood restaurant.
Even if you don't like seafood, you should eat here. It's a set menu of more than 15 courses, expertly prepared by the all woman kitchen.
The pace of the meal is perfectly timed, allowing you to absorb the natural beauty. It's really the experience of a lifetime.
