I've been twice to this trattoria during last summer. The first time I booked the same day driving from Abruzzo with my wife and a family friend, and on the second visit I was solo. Although it is called a trattoria, the table settings consist of tablecloth and a paper cover. There is an internal courtyard but we preferred seating inside near a window as it was a really hot day. We ordered several entrees, all well presented, full of flavour and including some dishes we had never tried before like the fish parmigiana. We skipped the pasta, and ordered a mixed seafood grill and a mixed seafood paranza (deep fried seafood). We sipped a very good Pecorino wine, organic, from Fiorano Estate. We discovered later on this wine had been awarded one of the best whites of the 2014 vintage. We enjoyed every mouthful, and our empty plates were full of shells or fish bones at the end. So we had no room for dessert, but at the end Massimo, the charming bachelor son of Domenico, offered us a round of Sardinian mirto liqueur. The total till came to 107 Euro, and it was worth every cent.
The second time I only had the spaghetti allo scoglio, consisting of prawns, mussels and clams. It was excellent. The wine reduction sauce was the right texture, not too astringent or savoury. Amongst all of the clam and mussel shells there was no trace of sand, which sometimes you find in this type of dish. A table nearby with two couples from Rimini had the same dish and they were continually complimenting and saying there was no place like this in their home town. The meals here were the best seafood experience of the holiday.
Worth noting, the trattoria is just outside the autostrada exit on the left hand side, with easy free parking nearby. So before stopping in any auto grill consider stopping here instead. Reservations are advisable.
