“Great dining experience”
Reviewed 9 August 2012

In July I took my wife and son on a holiday to the lovely city of Pescara. One evening we decided to venture north on the Adriatic coast to a lovely town called Silvi Marina. We stopped at this restaurant, Velvet Marina. From the moment we walked into the restaurant we realised that we might be on to a winner (and not only because of the welcome air conditioning). The staff made us feel welcome right from the start. The restaurant is situated right in the centre of Silvi Marina and faces the sea. Can't really think of a better location for a quiet family dinner on the Adriatic coast.

We started our dinner with a selection of lovely hot and cold seafood starters.
The fish we had for our main course was delicious and it was definitely one of the best seafood meals I've ever had. We had a local rose' wine (suggested to us by the friendly waiter).
We obviously couldn't leave the restaurant without trying their desserts. Needless to say they were as good as we expected, judging by the quality of the dinner we enjoyed. At the end of the dinner we even had a 'passito' on the house. A great quality dinner in the end set us back a total of €80, not bad considering the amount of good quality food.
We were told by the staff that the Gelateria Tiziano, situated right next door, was a well known gelateria in the whole area. After a long walk through the town, we made our way back to the gelateria and decided to find out whether the staff were right. They were, once again.

For anybody that goes to visit Pescara, I strongly suggest to try this place out.

“The best meal we had in Italy ever”
Reviewed 15 November 2011

We, were in Velvet restaurant in middle of the summer of 2011 . Seems to be fresh newly build and very high-grade .

The place is very well situated – taking first floor of remarkable Elena Club hotel in the Silville part of Silvi Marina in vicinity of Pescara City.

It was one of the more authentic places we ate at in Italy. The place specialization is “Piatti di Pesce” and the choice is really amazing! I personally not an admirer of fruits of the sea but wife was going to taste everything ;) .
Pizzas are also remarkable although place does not have wood-stove for making pizzas the mastery of pizzaiolo makes pizzas taste outstanding. For several weeks I ate almost every of two dozens of pizzas mentioned in menu and would repeat this continuously.
Place also have bar with good choose of quality wine and various liquors which is rarity in restaurants in this region.

Worth mentioning nice pleasant view from terrace (everything is green and lots of flowers ) and large free parking place.
