“The Cantinone” takes its name from the ancient Italian name of “Cantina” (cellar). This was usually located on the ground floor or basement and was used for the storage of food in the traditional houses of Abruzzo.
They were often built by enlarging an existing cave and was a very important place because it stored all the necessary food to sustain the family during the long and harsh winters. Because of its high value it was usually under lock and key by the head of the family.
Opening hours: 3-10 pm.
Try Il Cantinone for local infusions and teas, for conducts and typical wines, or just to relax in front of the fireplace.
