A great setting aside the fountain in the centre of the old town. Ordering is confusing as they have no menu - but that’s down to my poor language. Food is excellent , a great mix of local cheeses, meats and beautiful pasta dishes. Beer and wine is great too alongside never ending bread. Definitely worth a visit.

We just stopped in for a glass of wine before dinner and had a great experience at La Fonte. Although our hostess didn't speak much English she was very patient and helped us choose some very nice wine. We were surprised when the wine came with a plate of prosciutto, bread and some amazing local cheese with honey...all for €6 a glass.

The restaurant itself, as the name suggests, is right next to an old fountain in a quaint square in medieval Scanno. You can sit and watch the water or watch the people go by while enjoying your wine.

All in all a great experience and an opportunity to have the 'sit on the square in Italy' experience that rampant tourism has all but killed in many places. Although we were only there for an hour it was one of the highlights of our trip.
