La Bigattiera is a country restaurant with an excellent view of the little old town of Citta' Sant'Angelo, the mountains, hills and, in the distance, the sea. Unfortunately the viewing platform is only used for functions, but one can still eat outside, in the courtyard of this old farmhouse.
Service is attentive, the menu is composed mainly of local hearty meat dishes, and they also do pizza.
For our candle-lit dinner we had a huge "antipasto della casa", made up of lots of sample starters, followed by " arrosticini" ( small lamb skewers, typical of the Abruzzo region) and an excellent "tagliata di manzo" (sliced steak) cooked on the barbecue.
Price-quality ratio : very good. Local red wine of high quality.
