We happened upon this superb restaurant by accident when exploring the village of Montesilvano Colle. What a find! We reserved a table for dinner that evening and returned two days later for lunch. The food is exceptional and Guiliano, the maitre d, is so friendly and helpful to "English only" patrons.

We had rented a Villa for the week in Montesilvano Colle and just stumbled across NiNi's in the Piazza. It has the most unbelievable panoramic view of lower Montesilvano and the Adriatic. It was early afternoon and they were about to close until evening service when the nicest young man agreed to serve a late lunch. His name was Juliano and it turns out he was a manager. He was gracious, fun, friendly, informative about the area and just made a fantastic luncheon even more special. The atmosphere, the fantastic food, the presentation and Juliano made it a memorable find for a group of US tourists. Our group of eight was so impressed that they surprised me at the Villa the next evening with a birthday dinner prepared by the chef at NiNi's and coordinated by Juliano. Everything, including the largest tray of tiaramisu that I had ever seen, was absolutely fantastic! And the next day when we returned the dishes to NiNi's Juliano again made us feel like family...'Come on in and have some coffee!" With the coffee he served us some special little delights that the chef prepared for us...and wouldn't let us pay. We have eaten in many great restaurants in many parts of the world, but for such a first class operation in such a remote and beautiful part of the world we were not only made to feel very comfortable...we were made to feel like family! Whoever owns NiNi's has not only a jewel in their unbelievable setting, but also in their chef, their menu and most of all in Juliano! What a nice young man! It is not possible to give them some numerical rating because whatever number you would assign they would exceed. Go there, enjoy and tell Juliano the folks from Missouri said hello!

What a fab discovery this small restaurant on the hills of Montesilvano Colli. Only 10/15 minutes from Pescara: marvelous in hot summer nights (sligthly cooler than Pescara town). Food is extremely well done. Using locally produced ingredients but re-invented in recipes which match tradition with innovation. Service is very friendly and competent. Nice the rooms inside (an old cave) and truly magnificent the huge terrace outside, overlooking the coast.

The view was fantastic and the food was top notch. We had the chef's menu which featured local cuisine. Between the sunset, the wine, the multiple courses it was a feast for the senses.

Everything was just perfect in this restaurant. First the food: we took a several courses meal (5/6?) which was prepared by the chef. Simply delicious. They used mainly local ingredients and traditional recipes but in a more modern and creative manner. Service was super attentive and kind and the atmosphere was great. Inside, an old cave. Outside, a large terrace overseeing the bay. Magnificent at night. The bill is so reasonable that you would not believe it. Definitely worth a visit (and two, and three...)
