If you are in Italy to enjoy good food and wine in a restaurant where Italians eat, this is the place. It wasn't particularly cheap but the meals and drinks were most enjoyable, the service prompt and the staff welcoming and helpful. Note that it's only open for lunch.

The warmest of welcomes from Gino himself, and staff. Food just excellent, light and so tasty with obvious careful, considerate preparation, and accompanied by appropriate local Abruzzo vino. A real treat for a fine dining luncheon which we all thoroughly enjoyed, leaving happy and replete ! Well done to all at Gino's. Highly recommended

Nice restaurant with their own store next door to purchase some of their products. We had the lamb casserole which was lovely. Fantastic service and local wine.

What a warm and kind welcome in this simple and charming place at Sulmona center. They are only open for lunch because they like to take care of their clients focusing only on one single meal a day. The service is wonderful and the food good. It deserves a stop if you're around

Our friends told us this was the restaurant not to be missed in Salmon and I can't say they were wrong. From the white-coated women in the kitchen to the charming waiters, to the decor (even in the bathroom) all was perfect here. We arrived early for Saturday lunch, but the place filled up quickly. Tops for me perhaps was... More

My husband and I have been to Gino's several times over the last 15 years. I would go more often, but it's over 3,000 miles from where I live. My favorite dishes are the carpaccio and the zucchini flower pasta (served only in season) the service is impeccable and the food --what can I say-- but the best!!! It is... More

Visited Sulmona today with family. Did some research and this came out with great reviews. I found the staff very friendly and warm and on checking in for lunch at 12.30 we were made to feel welcome however the restaurant was quite cold. We decided to go for the fixed menu at 30.00 per head. Surprisingly, the Antipasti were only... More

The atmosphere is lovely and the food is incredible. There were many people there on the Saturday so if you go on the weekend you may be best to reserve a table. The waiters are excellent and can speak English but don't be tempted to think this could be a restaurant for foreigners only - it was full of Italians... More

We just loved the food and the hospitality we had here, we were staying at the B & B and had one of our most memorable meals in this awesome family restaurant. Sulmona and this place is a real gem. Thanks Marco for treating us so well!

Trip to Sulmona would never be complete without a visit to this Michelin star restaurant five stars for service food and ambience. It's a rare find in this mountain town. The Veal is to die for definitely worth the trip only open for lunch reservations needed.
