Food and drink

The Vestina area is one of the undiscovered culinary centres of Italy. The diverse geography and largely rural nature of the area combines with a local passion and tradition for food. The many high quality restaurants use local ingredients to produce dishes ranging from Italian and Abruzzan classics  to popular local dishes and the area has  justifiably gained a reputation for excellent cuisine.

Within Villa Celiera alone there are 3 butchers, 2 bakers, and a renowned grocer. The village and surrounding area also boasts 5 restaurants (see restaurant guide) which attract customers from Pescara and as far as Rome.

Eating in the area you will not only sample standard Italian cuisine and the principle dishes of Abruzzo but also a series of dishes that Villa Celiera is renowned for and in some cases have their origins in the village.
