One of my favourite restaurants in the world. Beautiful scenery to enjoy while eating excellent local food prepared with style. The antipasti is a celebration in itself, every time we go there new treats have been added making each meal different. The pasta is delicious and meat is grilled to perfection. The pizzas are also great, though the pizza oven is not on at all sittings. This is a very friendly family business and they take great pride in making your experience the best they can. There are rooms to stay at in Barone and the breakfasts are also fantastic, different home made cakes to choose from as well. Can't recommend highly enough, if you like walking in fantastic mountain scenery and enjoy good food and hospitality this is a great place to stay. If your Italian isn't good don't be afraid to phone for a reservation, Daniella speaks fluent English and is a very lovely person

The drive to the restaurant, with stunning views of the Abruzzo countryside, are perfect, and when you arrive at the restaurant you are greeted with friendliness and charm. The restaurant is decorated with charm. It's ambiance immediately relaxes you, and prepares you for the truly perfect culinary experience, of locally sourced fresh food, which is prepared and cooked with love and care. The head waiter, will lead you to your table and will be attentative of your requirements without being obstrusive. A perfect balance.
Then the food. Do not miss the "antipasti della casa". It's heavenly, I've never tasted better in Italy.Then for "i primi" I rarely eat gnocchi in a restaurant, but here it's spot on. Then secondi. The meat is always perfectly cooked and tastes so fresh and full of flavour. My favourite has to be tagliata di vitello. Try the semi freddo for dessert. I thoroughly recommend this superb restaurant. Ambrosia maybe the food of the gods, but you'll feel as if you're in food heaven when you visit and eat here. Do book in advance to avoid disappointment.

We stayed at La Locanda del Barone for four days and ate there every evening. The food was excellent and the ambience was noteworthy. The staff was attentive to particular dietary needs and portions. The high quality of the meals was absolutely fantastic! Home made pastries, pizzas, pastas and desserts were artistically created and presented. Excellent value for money also! We intend to return!

I have enjoyed the regional cuisine of this restaurant for many years and now is time to write a review on this fantastic place. The Locanda rests in a very picturesque contrada with a beautiful view of the Majella mountain and Caramanico. The restaurant is nicely decorated, clean and spacious. Food is always excellent. The last time we enjoyed beautiful potato ravioli with ricotta cheese, chestnuts and mushrooms, and delicious arrosticini. We finished the meal with a gorgeous chocolate semifreddo. There is nothing better than having a good meal at this restaurant after a day of trekking in the mountains of the Majella national park.
I love the Locanda del Barone!
