Reviewed 1 June 2017

It is a very traditional bar/cafe that serves the best porchetta for miles around. You have to often book ahead for Pina to reserve your amount of porchetta.
It is wonderful but often it is a tad too salty! Well you just have to drink more beer. Have been visiting there for 13 years.

This is a no frills cafe but serves the most delicious pork we have ever eaten! The first day we tried - they had run out, so we are glad we called again and sampled this local food. Great flavours! A plate of meat served with a basket of bread. Simple!

Sells two items - porchetta and arrosticini. Both are OK - but no better than you'll get anywhere else in the area. Lu Pennese can hardly be called a restaurant, as it's basically a bar, with a tiny and not especially nice eating area to one side. Much bigger outside area, but again, as it's on a bend on a busy road, not great. Final minus is your food has to be ordered in advance. So not much chance of a spontaneous drop-in on the spur of the moment. Parking can be tricky when it's busy.

I have eaten here once or twice in the summer and although the food is limited the porchetta and arrostocini are great! It is also a great place to rub shoulders with the locals.
I also get porchetta to take away from here, it is really that good, and it is also worth buying a half a kilo of their homemade sausages.

The host is a very friendly person,who made sure that we had great service, and lots of drinks! The food was tasty,unfortunately the night we were there it wasn't very busy, and as it's a huge place one felt a bit lost. I've heard that you must book though for weekends, especially in the summertime. We will definitely be back.
