Had to wait for over 20min before seated, even with a reservation and they didn’t apologize for the wait. Servers were rushing, although most of the tables were empty. Foods were just mediocre, nothing special.

Sulmona has great food. The pizza is wonderful as are the fried artichokes, mussles and wild boar pasta! We went on a Friday at 5 and the bar was hopping and a bit loud. It seems that this is a popular TGIF place. By 7 the restaurant was packed. I have been here three times and the food has always been wonderful.

I recommend a reservation on a weekend.

We had a wonderful time! The table was great for our group, the service was attentive and friendly. The food was incredible - we almost immediately ordered more appetizers after tasting the first round. Dinner was delicious and well-portioned. Nothing was rushed, but there was also no real waiting around.

It was so very loud. We were seated at one of the high top tables with a preschooler, which was a disaster because the stools are not the sturdiest. Our table flipped over once when one of our party leaned too heavily on it, spilling several drinks. It was a struggle to hear the people at our table and our server seemed incredibly busy. In addition there weren't very many options for someone with a dairy allergy on the menu and they weren't able to tailor the dishes either because many of the ingredients had been made ahead of time. Cool decor. Probably won't return.

Everything was wonderful except the noise. Food great, service great, prices high but understandable. This was our second visit to Sulmona, and I would say all the same things about our first visit. That was in the summer, and we had a table at a huge window open to the outside, but it was next to a big subway grate and every time a train went by we had to take a break in the conversation until the noise died down. The second time, in the winter, there was no noise from the outside but the noise level was just as high. I like this place a lot and would go again for the food, but not if I expected to have any kind of conversation.

The organization of this restaurant is rather poor. Numerous bench style tables prevent staff from making adjustments to large crowds of customers. Had a reservation and waited an excessive amount of time to be seated even though open tables were visible. Was seated in a bar area around a bunch of people standing at the bar.

My wife and I had a great time on valentine's day the food was excellent, the only let down that night was I reallly wanted to have the Pollo Parmiciano chicken dish and my wanted the apple dish for dessert we felt that, on such an important day everything on the menu should have been available to have.
We do plan on coming back again soon and our friends also.

all I can say is that the food was phenomenal. They had a special which was a fish dish with risotto and egg plant. It was to die for . My fiend and I had seconds instead of desert.
Please have this as a standing menu. It was delicious.
Service was also good.

Wonderful! After a little hiccup upon arrival, our meal and experience was fantastic! There was not a table available for us even after confirming our reservation earlier in the day. The manager made sure we were set up with drinks (on him) at the bar and made us comfortable until our table was ready. The service was great and the food + wine was super tasty. Happily would go back to the fun spot!

Friendly staff. Great food. Energetic atmosphere. Highly recommend. When I got to Sulmona, my table wasn't ready (having made a reservation) and had to wait 10-15minutes. While we were waiting, the host brought me and my friend each a glass of champagne to apologize for the inconvenience - definitely an A+ in my book.

Sulmona is wonderful! My boyfriend and I went there for a date night and the ambience was perfect -- soft lighting without being dark and they seated us in a little nook when we asked for a quiet spot. The food is simply delicious. I had the carbonara and my boyfriend had the spaghetti. The waiter was friendly and just the right level of attentive for us. We will definitely be going back.

Not my first time at Sulmona, but first time trying their Brunch. Slightly disappointed both as a return patron and because I brought two people with me who had never been before. The food half the table's food came out and the other half didn't come out for ten minutes. We ordered the waffles for the table and they were cold when we got them. Also had to send back the two egg dishes because the eggs were supposed to be poached and they were hard on the inside. Never got asked for a refill on coffee and had to flag down someone who was not our server to get a water refill. I'll return because I do like the ambiance and the drinks, but probably not for brunch.

The decor and ambiance is great, the food does not reflect that. Carbonara pasta was bland and sauce runny, noodles were too al dente. Other pasta dishes were just as low quality considering the price. Plenty of other good Italian places in the area, not sure why people gave it good reviews.
