Wanted to to have a drink and light meal for dinner. Even if it was quite and I was the only customer, I had to wait at the reception for long to make my order. Waiters seem tired and annoyed to serve. I order a cold dish... prosciutto, salami and mozzarella mixed plate.

Prosciutto was sliced so thick that I couldn't cut it with the disposable plastic knife and fork they gave me ( disposable plastics knife and fork!!, what kind of restaurant and bar give that??)
Over priced and unappetizing.

There are other bars and restaurants around which I checked the next day and give by far the best service than this.

Reviews seem to be pretty mixed for this one - I was there twice (both for the people watching and because they have great light for reading (important when you're traveling alone!). Fair enough the service is a bit abrupt if you don't speak Italian (but then I sound a bit abrupt given my rubbish Italian!) but the aperitivo was fine (4euro now). The nibbles varied night to night as I'd expect and the local coming and going was a good indication of an established business and added to the buzz (even the police dropped in) so let's focus on why we drop in (to enjoy the buzz) - nothing wrong with the place and I bet it's nice and cosy in cold weather

We stopped here for a quick Aperitivo while checking out the music festival. The service was extremely slow and very unfriendly. Finally I went inside to ask for our check and the waitress told me 7 euros, but then when I went to check out the other woman tried to charge me 10.50 Euros for drinks we didn't order, when I told her we only had two small beers she said yeah same price. Bad experience and rude staff!

This has to be, as others have noted, the best spot in Sulmona for people-watching and the entertainment comes for free.
Early evening sat outside with a glass of wine or beer (beer is more expensive than the wine) was prime time. The wine was good value at €3 a glass and came with a small snack plate of sandwiches, pizzette or similar.
We spent more than one evening on our visit sitting, drinking and soaking up the vibrant atmosphere of this beautiful town.

It is also a "locals" place...best is sitting outside, ordering a prosecco which comes with a small plate with bites of food. The owners are friendly, hardworking. i was introduced to the place by the mother, also a hardworking flower shop owner just across from Ristorante I vecchio muro....I recommend a visit to her shop.
