Ate here in September very nice setting.unfortunatly their is no vegetarian options they did make us some pasta with tomatoes sauce but would be nice if they were a couple of vegetarian options on the menu as they already have the ingredients and if they did we would return as we stay close by to the restaurant .

Really pleased with our visit, the place was quite quiet, the service was excellent and they were very patient with my rough Italian (which all foreign visitors should endeavour to grasp when in Italy regardless).

It was a little pricey, but the range was great, the quality was outstanding and there was every variation of Montepulciano under the sun!

A great meal, and an excellent example of Italian dining. Grazie.

Back again; the last review was a little time ago, though.

I am motivated to add this review as the restaurant has changed its menu. I don't like going back to places and finding that over a year, there is zero change - surprisingly, there are quite a few such restaurants about.

On this occasion, I enjoyed an orate (bream) in potato. Interested, as this was the first time I'd tried it, or indeed seen it. My wife had the orate in finely chopped pistaccios (which has featured on the menu for a little time). Both were lovely pieces of fish, and served with oven potatoes - not roasted, but cooked more quickly, after being thinly sliced.

The pastas are always excellent here; try the large pasta (I don't recall whether it is pacceri or another very big pasta) with lobster - even the memory makes me hungry for that.

The only down side is that the waiting staff seem a little distracted, and it can be a job to get their attention. But when they are focused, then it is knowledgeable and helpful service.

Lunch for two, with a decent bottle of wine, came to about 80 Euros.

Very good quality food, with some very interesting antipasti fish starters - delicious!
Also good wines and impressive service.

The restaurant is close to the Adriatic sea but no sea views. However the outside seating area is very pleasant and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal - a lovely place with a great menu.

Great place a couple of steps from the Adriatic coast. There is a nice trabocchi view across the street.

Enjoyed a late lunch after visiting Lanciano. Wonderful fresh fish and wine. Practice your Italian as most of the wait staff do not speak English, but no matter. Bring your translations of fish from Italian to English or whatever might be your native language.

Rombo = turbot = similar to flounder in New England

Spigola = European sea bass = bronzino = branzino

Wonderful meal!
