First visit to this restaurant, despite having been through Capestrano pretty often.
We stopped in with the intention of getting pizzas to take out, but it was getting later in the evening, so we stayed for dinner instead. The pizzas were OK, but not exceptional.
However, we really enjoyed the starters; a bowl of saute'd liver was very tasty, and also quite a decent-sized serving. I was thinking that I would happily take that as a main course. I like liver, but one doesn't see it on Abruzzese menus very often, so that was a welcome discovery. My wife had a fish and chickpea soup; sounds odd, but it too was very nice, the chickpeas adding a bit of thickening to the soup. We felt that the soup as a starter and the liver as a main course would be a perfectly god meal (in terms of quantity), and both dishes were really nice.
I would add that the wine list didn't show house wine available by the carafe, but only listed bottles, mainly from local cantinas. However, it is available, (and as ever, cheaper than the bottled wine even if local).
All-in-all, a pleasant evening, underpinned with attentive but not intrusive service. We'll be back!
