We first visited four years ago and remember thinking on arrival that the place seemed too 'grand' for casual dining, but it was, and still is, a place where you will feel comfortable whether you go just for a pizza or for a four-course meal. The portions are all on the large side - and if you order the antipasti... More

Visited with friends and the restaurant was empty but midweek out of season. The Staff produced an amazing number and variety of courses all served with a generous selection of local wines. All the food was sourced as locally as possible and was a real showcase for the region. would love to return one day.

Beautiful setting on a hillside, wonderful local fare (pity the portions are too big). The restaurant's friendly cat provided much amusement...

We had a wonderful meal and ate outside so that we had an exceptional view of Teramo and countryside at sunset. Capped off by gift of a glass of Genziana to end our evening.

We dined here on 7/9/2012, the occasion of our 35th wedding anniversay. From start to finish, it was a first rate experience. Claudio, our host, seated us outdoors at a table with a magnificent panoramic view of Teramo. My wife had a gnocci dish and I had the mixed grill, and we shared a caprese salad. All of the food...

EXcellent value, this time we dined with four others and had a sea food extravaganza. Too many antipasta courses to mention, 2 prima piatti and the secondo piati had 2 fillets and a whole fish on the plate! If I were critical it was just too much! Outstanding value, you can get all this and house wine for 25 euro... More

Fabulous garden to enjoy our first dinner in Abruzzo. Delicious pizza and pasta dishes. The service was very friendly. We noticed that many locals were dining there - always a good recommendation.

We walked into this restaurant and thought this will be too expensive for us. It looked like a 5 star restaurant but the prices were very reasonable. Most important, the food was absolutely fantastic. This was our best restaurant in our 30 days in Italy.

We didn't really intend to visit Il Fortino every evening that we were in the area but the excellent welcome and convenient location drew us back (we were staying nearby at La Grande Quercia and this was their recommendation - thanks Russ and Sergio). To start this review I need to give a warning about portion sizes and the consequences... More

Il Fortino is a lovely restaurant overlooking Teramo on one side and the Gran Sasso from the back. Both the interior and exterior are very grand and it gives the impression of having 5 star prices, but that's not the case. Whilst the house antipasto is not cheap at €10,00, one is enough for 2 people, as in addition to... More
