We came here on our way back to london having driven from matera
Beware the satnav sent us around some scary heights and tiny roads so when we arrived we were so grateful to be alive !
Gabriel is just warm and welcoming he did not speak much English but quickly introduced us to some of his Canadian Italian clientele offering tea on arrival . The Canadian guests have been coming regularly for years
Please see the reviews. They are real
Leonardo and Antonello took care of us
The sun shone. The chickens crew. The mountains looked magnificent. They looked just like clouds from the motorway and then became solid snow capped with glaciers
We knew we were just passing through but felt like we were family guests. It was busy from sunday lunch. These guys work hard and they deserve all the praise given. They give it soul. They are delightful ! simple and delicious would describe the food, the location is magnificent. The accommodations meets all basic needs. Good car park nice little playground for children
I would love to go back.

This is a family run restaurant with rooms, situated in the Maiella National Park 45 minutes drive from Pescara. ( you could probably get there more quickly if you possess the inate driving skills which are in the DNA of most Italians and if you were not driving a Fiat 500 hire car). If you are anywhere in the vicinity you just must make a detour for lunch or dinner, preferably both and preferably stay for a couple of nights and explore this stunning area, which has walking trails in the mountains, by rivers, and waterfalls. The quality of the food and its preparation and cooking is exceptional. The produce is organically home grown. They grow the grain to make the flour to make the pasta. Vegetables, tomatoes, aubergines, cauliflower, potatoes etc all have a depth of flavour that this Brit hasn't tasted in years. The cured meats, from their free range animals, melt in the mouth. And the cheeses! All homemade, all.....well I'm running out of superlatives. Gabriele, Paula, and their daughter Dalila work the magic in the kitchen. Take a bow and a round of applause. The front of house service too is excellent. Nothing is too much trouble; they just want you to have the best possible time. What are you waiting for?

My family visited Tholos for a late lunch after a beautiful walk to the Eremo close by. We were so glad we chose Tholos. Fantastic food made with an obvious passion! I would love to go back. It will remain one of our taste highlights of our trip!

we didnt have a reservation and were lucky they had availability. the menu is the chef's tasting menu so they bring whatever they made that day. you won't be disappointed. everything was incredible...the cheese, the bread, the salumi's, the pasta and on and on. incredible meal and excellent value. the location is very unique and the tholos is a great attraction.

Real Slow Food experience. I come here on a regular basis to enjoy seasonal food in the restaurant. The owners are very friendly and helpful if any info about the area is needed. Try their degustation menu - to die for!
The rooms are very simple but comfortable.
