each time we go ( when we can get a reservation) it's as good as the last time: superior. Everything is 5*. Very fun, great wine list ( where we first discovered Fontefico wine), specialty is goose breast: believe me and just order it, as well as cinghiale, deer, other meats. Not inexpensive but not overpriced either.

We were on our way home to Rome and decided to pass through Ovindoli for dinner. Upon seeing the reviews for La Stozza, I knew we had to eat here. I called an hour before our arrival and they fit us in last minute. The service was wonderful...kind waiters full of local pride and information on the food and area.... More

We were looked after very well from the moment in which we entered. The food was all very good and un-expensive. The "inferi"wine, a montepulciano, was the best one that I never had in abruzzo.

What an amazing experience in La Stozza, the service was quick, polite and attentive. The food was the best one that I never experienced in Abruzzo, in 10 years of holidays. The prices are very reasonable and the wine list is fairly priced. After dinner the chef-owner will have a chat with you and will offer a local liqueur. You... More

Amazing amazing amazing. We showed up at 4pm on a Friday without a reservation and the chef/owner was just arriving at the restaurant. (Usually dinner starts at 9pm) Although they were booked out for the entire evening he offered to seat us and cook and serve us himself. I have never experienced such kindness from a chef/owner. The dinner was... More

Osvaldo and his staff serve up delicious local dishes and are on hand to answer any questions about the area or recommend wine, they even helped us find a mechanic for our car! The restaurant is cozy and they even have the antlers of a Jackalope... More

Although I made a reservation via e-mail, the owners were too busy cooking and serving (this a good thing ;) ) and not used to reading mail. So if you go, phone them! Some of them speak English. I was on a business trip to Italy and I took a shot at going there without a confirmed reservation (alone). There... More

Excellent restaurant in Ovindoli in the Abruzzo mountains - black truffles are a speciality. We have been here several times with my husband's parents and every time have had the warmest of welcomes and excellent food made with the freshest of products. The nice thing is all customers are welcomed this way whether they are regulars or the first time.... More
