This is One of the most famous restaurant in the PESCARA province. Unfortunately the name is not coherent with the Quality of the food, but totally aligned with the price. So if you choose this restaurant you will pay for the name. Easily you can find anorher restaurant in the area where you can eat same quality at half price.

We ordered the menu presented on the leaflet in the lobby (menu avaible from 9/9 til 19/9). exquisitely fresh and tastefull (fish)food like paintings on a plate. we enjoyed 5 courses for a... More
