Description: 'La Locanda sul Lago' was born in 1930 as a barn and municipal mill. After this, it was the first restaurant in Santo Stefano, lovingly managed since the '70s by Lina, also known as' Pentolina', who together with his brother and his friend began to Cook and manage the locale. Later, in 2006, it was restored and part of the building was intended for the hotel rooms. Spacious rooms, features and most of all overlook wonderful views. The restaurant is surrounded by windows overlooking the Santo Stefano di Sessanio pond as well as the wonderful peaks that surround us and above all the colorful cultivated fields of our territory. It offers dishes always linked to the territory, local produce and tradition, memory dishes that come to the heart with their scents and flavors, but are always supported by the authenticity of raw materials. Thanks to the Chef Simone Iezzi, to the care and warmth of his wife Francesca, thanks to all the staff you will be involved in a new and familiar experience, where quality and professionalism are always present, while veiled by the warmth of home

We ate here with a group. The service was excellent and the food was very good. They turned down the music when asked, too! If you are staying up in the village it is definitely worth walking down the steps to this restaurant. We had the local speciality which was a bit like lasagne, but made with pancakes rather than pasta and cooked in a small pot so that it is round in shape like a parcel - delicious.

Many restaurants claim to offer an authentic Italian experience but few truly deliver the qualities that constitute true Italian home cooking. Using fresh, carefully sourced ingredients, the chefs at La Locanda prepare each dish with love and passion resulting in an experience that is truly wonderful and not to be missed. Grazie for the explosion of tastes and pure enjoyment

For starter I was offered a special of the day that was pasta with sausage and cabbage. Delicious. The mains were good and homemade puddings delightful. Worth the short walk out of town.

We stayed for 3 days here in a pretty setting, next to a small lake, in a luscious valley growing lentils (a local speciality), with some very musical birds. The young friendly team offer local specialities, with a lot of meat, but were very creative in offering vegetarian alternatives. Next to the house is a small garden with plenty of options to lounge around as the day draws to a close and drink cool aperitivi, before the evening meal. The village of Santo Stefano is just a few minutes walk away and it is great to see how the damage caused by the last earthquake is being carefully repaired. Even the family dog made us feel welcome, although my wife is usually a bit worried about our four-footed friends. At the end of May our walks were easy to follow despite the rare use of signposts and the wild flowers a pleasure by the wayside. All in all, well worth the drive to get here.
