Typical tiny Italian osteria hidden away in the backstreets of Osimo. The restaurant is simply and authentically 'old fashioned'... the food is beautifully cooked - pure and simple according to local traditions. Ingredients all local and fresh. Portions very large and exceptionally well priced... Booking early is a must. A top favourite with locals.

Nice atmosphere and busy with locals. Always a good sign. We had cinghiale, wild boar, steaks, pastas etc., all very tasty over 2 visits and would readily return. Lots of... More

Wonderful home cooked food. The chicken liver ragu tagliatelle was especially delicious and there was a great selection of vegetarian options. The air conditioning was also very much appreciated on a searingly hot day.

We have been in Osimo before but we did not find this osteria before. We found it through trip advisor. Used the map to find it. We only found it because of the kitchen sound in the street. Then looked over the curtains and saw people inside. We were just in time and a table was prepared for us. I... More

The small and intimate restaurant serves typical dishes from the area cooked by people who take pride in their culinary tradition. The "pasta" is mostly home made and the sauces are succulent. We also enjoyed their meats and desserts. In the Marche region the best meals are eaten at home but in this Restaurant you enjoy a meal as if... More

The locals know where to go for good food, and it was packed when we visited on a cool October evening. The food was a range of traditional and local dishes. We were lent an interesting five language gourmet food dictionary to help us make a choose. We were not disappointed. This is a place worth searching for.

If you are in town and looking for a restaurant this is the best price /quality ratio you can get. The excellent food is local but... More

A small family run restaurant tucked away in the side streets of central Osimo. Good choice of starters and main courses, fast friendly service, excellent food and incredible prices. Don't be put off my the 70's decor, the food and service really makes up for it.
