We first ate here a two years ago and Massimo said it was named metamorfosi because you went in thin and came out fat! Nothing has changed , the food is still fantastic and great value for money. Everything is fresh and cooked to order .

Not too good, stodgy, pasta dishes available here. A trifle depressing with no other customers and an invasive, melodramatic TV programme going to at full volume

My husband's great uncle brought us here for a meal. Massimo was wonderful in catering to all of us. The food was fresh, honest, and plentiful. A great meal!

Metamorfosi is one of my favorite restaurants in Sulmona. Massimo is a great cook, and I don't think we've had a bad meal there. Try the risotto... or the lamb.... or the sausage.... or the pasta... or the pizza. Everyone I bring there has enjoyed it.

Best of all, the owner, Massimo. The local tipical plates are tasty and authentic...I recommend the mixed antipasto as it has so many different tastes of foods and is quite filling. The pizzas are wonderful as is the arrosticini and other secondo plates. Massimo is the best pizza maker, and is most generous and kind. I ate there several times,... More

I've been to Metamorfosi twice, late at night, and was pleasantly surprised both times by the quality and quantity of the food. It's not fast, but it's always superior. Best of all, Massimo lets you take the left-overs home! Grazie!

Stayed in Massimo's Albergo for five weeks when attending an intensive. While the rooms are simple, they are clean! Massimo's hospitality really overwhelmed us all. His buffet lunches were huge and included vegetarian options... Way more than a human can eat! And his suppers were as expansive! I am a great spaghetti carbonara fan, and his use of guanchale instead... More
