Went here for the first a couple of nights ago and loved it! The family is so nice and the food is out of this world! When we have visitors come to Vasto we will take them here! Come hungry and plan to spend about...3 hours. The food is fresh and made right in front of you! I cannot say enough about this place!💗More

This is not so much visiting a restaurant as being invited to dinner at Pepe's home along with 25 others. We had a great evening with great hospitality, food and wine. No menu - you get antipasto, pasta and meat as it is cooked. My...favourite was the beans, but it was all good. I hope we have the chance to go there again.More

This has been our best meal in Italy so far, no menu, but the owner explains what he has, and you choose what you want. He makes the pasta and cooks the meat in front of you, and the door to the kitchen is always...open so you can see what is going on. Service was excellent, each course really tasty, and we finished off with home made cake. They open at 8, but well worth the wait, most locals arrive towards 9, recommend to book if you want to arrive at that time. Everyone was really friendly and made you feel comfortable and relaxed.More

If you’re looking for a quick bite or a hit and run.. skip it. If you want the best meats slow cooked over charcoal in an open hearth, this is IT. First you’re treated with at least five appetizers, followed by a home made pasta,...made right there in front of your eyes and then, pure meat bliss. The lamb exquisite, the beef exceptionally good and the home made sausage, slightly spicy, a delicious treat. Go there and hope to get a seat at this 8 table trattoria.More

Food was great as was the host. You are certainly made welcome. It's also fun to see the host making pasta in front of you as well as watching the assortments of meat on the grill. No menu just given what is the days special.

The result was plate after plate of amazing food. The anti pasti were excellent and lots of them. We had lunch here with Italian relatives when the restaurant they intended to take us too was fully booked - a great piece of luck or we...wouldn't have found this little gem. Friendly and helpful staff. I would definitely recommend this trattoria and we will definitely be returning every time we visit the Abruzzo.More

We were recommended to this restaurant by Italian friends. The location is unassuming and you get no hint of the delight that awaits inside. It is simply furnished , the central feature is a charcoal oven/grill on which bread and meat are cooked. We had...a series of delicious courses of typical Vastese food. Giuseppe came and spoke to us at our table and was keen to inform us about the seasonal food he uses. Don't just read this review - GO TO the restaurant and experience it for yourselfMore

The owner and his wife described their food as "simple and peasant based". The ingredients are fresh and based on what's available on the day. The dishes are unique and absolutely delicious. We ate two amazing bean based dishes - one with chick peas and...the other with fava beans - we were amazed at their simplicity and deliciousness. The meat was tasty, tender and grilled to perfection. Dessert was also amazing and so were the liqueurs (all home made). To top it off, it was cheap. You could never feed 7 people with that amount of food and drink for the same price back in the UK. We will be back. Highly recommended.More
