Have eaten here a number of times when we visit Sulmona. Obviously they have changed. Menu is very different.
We ordered appetizers primi and secondo. Asked to order a salad and were told it came with the meal.
A bit later our pastas arrived. We wondered where is our appetizer. Asked and told it was still baking.
The pasta was VERY al dente. The meat filled tortelli described on the menu was ricotta filled. We don't eat ricotta and said we didn't know it had ricotta and the waitress looked at us and said all filled pastas have ricotta. It should be then posted on the menu. The piglet in Orange sauce was 4 little slices of pork and very dry. No sign of a orange sauce. No sign of a salad other then the garnishment. We were very disappointed in the meal. We paid the bill noticing they still charged for the tortelli. We won't be back.
All in all smaller portions higher prices mediocre quality.

Lovely restaurant open on Monday lunchtime when everything else was closed. Pasta dishes including cacio e pepe, ravioli with crispy pigs cheek etc were perfect. Authentic Abruzzo cuisine.

Sulmona, although small, boasts great restaurants, this is one of the best. It is a locals favorite and easy to see why. The atmosphere is warm and casual, and the pizza is some of the best I've had, as well as the other dishes of authentic Abruzzo cuisine.

This is the perfect restaurant for a charming dinner in a great atmosphere. It's intimate and usually quiet. The tables are set with table cloths and the wait staff is very professional but not snobby. Most speak English and the menu is in English as well..
The appetizers / meat and cheese trays are wonderful and generous. The first plates are also generous sized and very tasteful and served hot not warm.

We drank the house red wine which was a local and it was very good and not expensive. We love watching the pizza chef doing his thing by the oven and this guy does the work of 3 American pizza place employees.

This was our 3rd visit and we will certainly go back.

We were in Sulmona last week visiting family. My relatives have lived in Sulmona for multiple generations and know this wonderful small town and the residents well. On our last day they took us here for a late lunch. The dishes we had here were wonderful and served HOT! I would highly recommend giving them a try! Found my meal so memorable when I arrived home a I made the parmesan bowl and parmesan/pepper pasta.
