I was in holiday in Italy and I went in the countryside just outside from Pescara. The location is fantastic between green hills there is this tower from the middle ages. Inside the restaurant looks great. Locals and traditionals foods and red wine are excellent. Arrosticini from sheep are super and the montepulciano was nice. The owner and the crew are also very polite and nice!We ll see again!

Fontâartana is located in the heart of the small town of Picciano in the center of Abruzzi. The town itself has relatively elevated architecture in its typical houses compared to many proximal small towns in the region.You enter Fontâartana though an large wooden gate door that leads you down a stone staircase of this two hundred hear old home. The âLâ shaped dining room is striking and had a brick groin vaulted ceiling. The room was beautifully appointed with historic cooking paraphernalia some over century ago. I arrived early so I had time to wander through the restaurant which leads out to charming terraces that peak through gates into the town itself on one side and look out to the beautiful countryside on the other side. The air was filled with the aroma of a large antique copper cauldron of boiling homade wine sittting just outside the kitchen doors. The owner and cook showed me the line of where the wine started which was about 10 gallons and then said he would boil down to get about and inch on the bottom when all is said and done 14 hours later. It is Moscatto which is a delicious sweet wine syrup served in their assorted cheese plate. It tasted delicousWhen I arrived back at my table there was bread served was dense fresh. I ordered the vegetable antipasto which comprised of 8 large rustic plates. A platter eggplant with cheese, a bowl of barley and greens and another bowl of egg with peppers. Paula my waitress then returned again with a simple fritter like bread, small fried croquets in a cheese sauce, a corn like croustade (my fave) and a bowl of sage leaves fried in a batter.All were delicious and way too much for me to eat. I thought, that it was my almost nonexistent Italian (which is mostly comprised of hand gestures) was part of an error and that I ordered the entire vegeatable antipasto menu until I noticed that other customers received the same items that I did. For the pasta couse I had a plate of homemade pasta with fried pancetta. It was rich and very good.Paula and the rest of the staff as was extremely helpful in helping me order and decipher Italian words. I sat just outside the kitchen and heard a lot of laughter from this friendly kitchen which only added to its charm. At one point I heard Italian then ânot at allâ then Italian banter then âyour welcomeâ. Paula my waitress who spoke just enough english came out to ask "which way do you answer thank you, with your welcome or with not at all??". Then beck into the kitchen and more laughter. Thier fun did not detract from the food.By this point I was extremely full and could not order the main course but saw a spectacular platter of brazed chicken that went to a table in a room of local regulars that I will be sure to get next time I go. For desert I had the Pannecotta (which is a very light custard) served with wild cherries. So delicious. Pannecotta is an good choice during fruit bearing months as it is usually served with fresh fruit. When I finished, my meal I was surprised that the meal that included a bottle of a local Rose wine was only 37 Euros. I wrapped up some of my food for uncle Pasquale back home took a couple of pix of the kitchen where the owner, his mother and wife all cook spectacular dishes which is constantly changing. I thanked Paula who responded ânot at allâ as I left. I felt like I got a glimpse of the true history and culture of abruzzi and was embraced by the people.

The Antico Torchio is the restaurant Ã la carte by Castello Chiola: it has an eclectic and contemporary style, able to communicate past and future. The chef Vito Pastore is interpreter of a modern kitchen that feeds on local ingredients, such as the extra
Visited for dinner with the family(all adults) had a very good meal, the restaurant is situated in a beautiful castle/hotel, in Loreto Aprutino which is also an old town to have a walk around.Pity they do not have enough staff to maximise their full potential as a location and as an innovative restaurant. However recommended as a good experience. Need to work on the tasting menu options but overall Kudos to the Chef!

Octavio and staff are so friendly and welcoming, we had steak and vegetables, pizza, lamb and stew, couldn't fault it, wine is cheap, a birthday party was in with karaoke which was a fun atmosphere. In the summer they have an outdoor area which is great definitely recommend!

The experience at La Casina Rosa is unique. What deserves 5 stars is the ambience, the romantic atmosphere of the place, all decorated with originality, care and art by the owner, with exclusive attention to the details. The restaurant is located in a quiet area, with hills around, and surrounded by a pretty, green lawn, with weeping willow trees. It is strongly recommended that you call in advance to make a reservation, especially for lunch. When we arrived, we were first welcomed by the owner, Madam Marino, a fine lady who made us feel as her guests right away. We started with âantipastiâ, which were a series of three different plates, one after the other one, each one with different types of food prepared with a wide range of herbs and even marmalade and honey. Being an âagriturismoâ, much of what was served was grown and produced in the same place, including some of the meat, herbs and spices, and a variety of bread. In fact, herbs are what gives a special aroma to each dish and what characterizes their cooking. Pay attention to the decorative âpowderâ around the edge of the plates as it is more than a decoration. It is actually herb dusting in which you can âdipâ the food. We had other servings after the âappetizersâ. We spent about E.30-35 per person, including wine and dessert. It feels like experimenting a different world, although being unaccustomed to such diverse taste at times left me uncertain about what I was actually eating... What is magical, though, is the very romantic ambience, the way the place is arranged and its surroundings. After the meal, we talked with the owner and then enjoyed the calm, peaceful atmosphere of the garden, on the benches under the trees, with a pleasant breeze in a very hot summer day. It is worth a trip (donât forget to ask for directions when you call to make a reservation, as it is otherwise difficult to find it). A tip: donât go there just for food but to enjoy some relaxing time in a special place. You can even stay there, as they have accommodation facilities.

La Bilancia is a quaint (Not elegant) restaurant in Penne (near the famous Brioni factory). The pasta is made by hand daily and is served "alla gricia" (very tasty but very heavy) or with "aglio, olio experiencing" (much lighter!)The grilled meats (sausages, beef and pork) were also good but not as unforgettable!Lunch for two (including a glass.of wine) was a reasonable â¬55 total..

Really delicious meal - seafood antipasti followed by pasta and we shared a main fish dish. A beautiful plate of desserts at the end made it a really huge meal (don't order everything up front there really was a lot!). With lovely service and great wine at a reasonable price we were delighted.They were also very accommodating of our requests for no dairy and no gluten - nothing was a problem for them.

local immersed in the municipal villa of chieti. offers various services, traditional and Italian menu, offers a buffet lunch and the possibility to eat pizza for lunch.
Nestled in the lovely historical town of Chieti lies a wonderful park with fountains, playgrounds and plenty of shaded seating. Just by the main fountain is La Casina dei Tigli, a cafÃ¨ and restaurant with both indoor and al fresco seating. There is an option to eat on site or order take away (perfect for a picnic in the park). We stopped for a family lunch and sat in the main restaurant, we ordered a mix of traditional starters, followed by pasta and pizza for the kids. Service was fast, bringing out the kids' food first which we were pleased about as it gave us time to enjoy the wonderful board of cheeses and hams with a glass of local red wine, all delicious. The selection of pizzas were impressive and in particular the list of Gourmet pizzas was mouth watering (all with Burrata cheese!). Overall, a perfect location for lunch or dinner by the park, wonderful and cordial service combined with excellent food. And with 2 playgrounds to choose from right next door the kids were happy too! Highly recommended.
