We have been visiting abruzzo for 5 years in a row. We never miss having lunch at Fiaccola. Anversa is beautiful. The hospitality and food at Fiaccola are fantastic. Make this a stop if you are in the region.

Very friendly and fantastic atmosphere! Food is excellent! The village is a really nice mountain village with old stone houses. Really worth leaving the highway for lunch.

This restaurant is a standout of the burgeoning Slow Food movement in Italy. The menu depends on fresh, local produce. Prices are a bargain compared to, say, nearby Sulmona. In sum: an adorable restaurant in the historic town core with a tradition of its own.

This small restaurant in the middle of Anversa was very good indeed. Service was prompt and efficient, and bread and water was provided promptly. Our gnocchi with a creamy sauce was delicately infused with basil and was very filling and tasty. The house wine was...More
