Highly recommend this restaurant! We had a great meal. Service was quick and loved when our server went into the kitchen and called out the order to his mom. Definetly will be back. Close to Piazza Garibaldi.

Had a great meal here. Had pasta and grilled lamb, both very good. This place was packed mid-week with locals because they have excellent food. We will definitely go back to sample other items.

.We found the food very good and very authentic for the Abbruzzo province. Mama does the cooking and her son was our waiter. Not much English spoken here....as it should be. Enjoyed the homemade pasta very much.

Not impressed with this restaurant. The restauant itself is drab and not very welcoming, the staff condescending and the food very ordinary.
