We came for Easter brunch. Food was delicious (as always)! Service was excellent despite large party and busy atmosphere. Love this place!

Delicious food and drinks, should start brunch drink specials, add few more veg options to menu, but tiramisu french toast, potato pizzette and waffles were all good!

Overall it’s a great restaurant. The look and feel are great. We went for brunch, my party had the salmon eggs benedict, the Mediterranean salad, the yogurt parfait, and the pork hash with Bloody Marys. The food was ok, nothing bad but nothing great. A LOT of pepper in the bloody Mary’s. If I come back it will be to try eating at the bar, maybe for a midweek catch up dinner with a friend. The bar looks really cool and a good vibe can make up for ok food. I most probably won’t be back for brunch.

Excellent, knowledgeable and attentive service-understood food allergy and made well informed recommendations. The porchetta was excellent and perfectly cooked. The grilled octopus was unique and delicious. For a Wednesday evening, it was busy but comfortable. We have been at many different times and the quality never disappoints!

By nature of the high ceilings and openness it was very loud when the restaurant was full but got better as the crowd dissipated a bit. Our server could have been more knowledgeable when asked about what was good she said pizza and pasta which I think would be a given since that’s pretty much their menu. She also brought us the cheese platter with no crackers or bread then brought five slices of bread for four people a little disappointing. The mail was good and we were pleased with our selections but my brown butter sauce turned out to be more of a cream sauce but was still very tasty. One of the members of our party was hoping for a non-alcoholic beer but apparently their full-service bar does not cater to non-drinkers.

We visited at a busy time - 7:30PM on a Saturday night. The weather had just changed over to being warmer, so guests were understandably taking their time. The staff seemed a bit overwhelmed, but were very kind. We were finally seated around 7:45PM - again, totally understandable - but to an only partially set up table. We were missing a water glass, drink menus, the specials list. Our server immediately noticed and brought all items over.
The busyness was a bit overwhelming. It took a while to get a refill on water, or to get the attention of one of the servers/staff members. The quality of food was really wonderful, and worth the wait.

My husband and I loved the food but our waiter was terrible. Took an incredibly long time to order, and even longer to get the check when we asked for it. We spent probably 30 mins total in waiting around for our waiter!

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.
