We all love Italian food. The fact is if you try the Italian food in Italy, you will struggle to find equivalent in your country. It just can not be fresher and tastier. Abruzzo is famous for arrosticini (sort of lamb kebabs on skewers), fish and seafood and beautiful fruit and veg.
The best (imho) restaurant in Val di Sangro area must be il Pino . It is only 15 minutes drive away and situated on top of the hill just outside of Lanciano. Ask for table outside (TAVOLA FUORI) and you will be able to admire gentle hills of the Sangro Valley with its romantic olive groves and vineyards as the sun is setting down. Food and service are excellent, try Corsaro (oven baked seafood pasta) or generous pot of freshest mussels. There is a big car park and children play area in the garden. The restaurant is open pretty much all the time, but at busy times is best to book a table as it is extremely popular for weddings, birthdays and family get-togethers.
Favorite Dish: Il Corsaro is magic, but suggest you share it between two. Seafood pasta is really good as well. Primi (starters) are generous portions of different cold cuts and do not miss local veg fried in olive oil! Very reasonable prices, friendly family service. Please note - there is no English menu, so take your dictionary with you!
Cascina based on the outskirts of Manoppello.
Very traditional local food of Bruscetta, Pasta, meat and local wine.
For a good staple italian meal where all thelocals go to eat..
If you try to go there on a Sunday, you should try and book or alternatively turn up early as all the large Italian families will have already taken all of the tables.
Favorite Dish: Don't forget to try the Funghi and Tartufo( Mushroomk and Truffle) pasta- Delicious
There are choices for vegetarian and they are very happy to accomodate
