We had heard from our hotel that this restaurant had slipped over the last couple of years. But it was a Monday night and choices were limited. We had booked and were seated at our table and then waited..... Eventually we asked a stag member for menus which were unceremoniously dropped on the table. Then we waited for someone to taker or order. We thought we ordered a single Primi to share - received a double serve (after a long wait). After a long wait, our pasta dishes were incorrect.
Food quality was OK - but relatively expensive. Wine recommended by our waiter was good. Overall a disappointing experience exacerbated by very poor service.

A restaurant very close to our accommodation at Residenza Vico Amato. Had great pizzas watching the pizza maker and the wood oven. Simple but tasty toppings and great bases

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.
