Great food and good value

We have eaten here several times over a few years and each time the experience is so good. This year we took our son who is also a foodie and he was bowled over by the experience.

I have been visiting Fermo for about 12 years now, and Locanda Del Palio was the first establishment I ate at and have been going there ever since. I have never been disappointed. Over the years I have had the good fortune to establish a friendship with this lovely, friendly family run Locanda, I always enjoy my visits and am... More

Locanda del Palio is at the top of my 3 places to eat in Fermo (Cafe Degli Artisti and Capolinea Cafe are my other two). It is always my first and last meal with many in between when in Fermo. Everything I've eaten there has been delicious and if they have the mixed fried fish as a special when you're... More

We ate here last month with 4 friends and had a great lunch. Especially the pasta with tartufo was wonderful. The antipasti of the house is also very good, white wine was very nice as well (and cheap). Go on time if you did not book a table, since the place is usually full during lunch hours.

This is without doubt the best restaurant in Fermo. In my opinion the owner has triumphed with a perfect balance of great food, lively convivial atmosphere and welcoming, efficient staff. We ate the wild boar papardelle followed by lamb skewers and wonderfully cooked potato crisps (a must!) accompanied with a tasty cabbage dish. Dessert of tiramisu was seriously the best... More

We started with fried olives and fried vegetables - with fried cream (like fried custard - particular to this area..). We then had pasta. With house wine and water... More

This restaurant i lovely Fermo provided us with a very straightforward lunch, The food was very good and we found the service satisfactory as well. The interior is "medieval" and while we waited for the fodd there were lots of items to look at. Nice place in a nice town.

"Locanda" in italian is a local restaurant with home cooking dishes.. This is a very good "locanda", just 5 minutes far from the main square of Fermo. I have ordered a yummy "antipasto" (appetizer) with ham, cheese and bruschetta and a very good meat dish (tagliata). Service is good, portions aren't excessive and the check was fair. the only bad...

If you are not looking for experimental cooking and modern, trendy décor, this is the restaurant to go if you are in Fermo. For it simply delivers what the name "locanda" stands for: excellent home cooking, use of local produce and consistency with the traditional recepices (limited selection of fish on Fridays only). Located in the ancient caves of a... More
