If you appreciate refined genuine regional Italian cuisine refined, impeccable service, and a glorious view, this is the place to spend four hours on a perfect sunny day. The setting is exquisite. Al fresco dinning at a table with incredible, unobstructed views of hillsides of olive groves and vineyards leading to the hilltop town of Colonnella. This place is right... More

My husband and I stumbled upon this restaurant late at night on our way across Italy and we found a gem! The owner was incredibly nice and the food was the best we've had in the northern part of Italy. The saffron sauce was our favorite...incredibly delicious! Even if this place is a bit out of your way it is... More

Have eaten here several times, in different seasons of the year. (Of course, in winter, we did not eat outside!) This restaurant offers authentic Abruzzo cuisine, such as roasted meats, deep fried stuffed olives, "fried cream" (crema frita) and delicious vegetables and desserts. And, of course, the wines! I have never had a bad meal there. The staff has always... More

Great lunch with perfect service and very reasonable pricing! Will be back with the family next time! The timballo and the meat was excellent. The restaurant was full with locals and is located beautifully!

This was my second time dining at Zenobi and it was another fantastic experience! Our party of 11 sat on the lovely terrace and enjoyed everything that was put in front of us -- amazing pasta, cheeses, prosciutto, meat, vegetables and wine.

I paid this place another visit, which confirmed what you see written in all other reviews: genuine and authentic food from Abruzzo, great staff, friendly owner. The usual great!

We stumbled upon this restaurant late in the evening as we were passing through the area and what a delight it was! The owner was very nice and helpful with our limited Italian. He brought us a free appetizer which was homemade crackers with a delicious cheese. He allowed us to split two dishes so we could try more than... More

Within the hour over 80 people where sitting in the outdoor conservatory - Service was amazing - food even better - the anti pasti was stunning with 5... More

I pay Zenobi a visit each and every time I am around in the area. Location is great, amidst gentle olive tree hills, and food is delicious. I can't really recommend any dish, as everything is frankly great. All pastas are handmade and meat is local, as well as the well-stocked wine list. Definitely one of the best places in... More
