Straightforward and full of flavor

We had reserved a table outside for dinner, luckily, as the place was almost completely full, with mostly Italian customers. The restaurant has a spacious terrace outside, and inside is also very nice with decorations of antique helmets, shields and armor. The food is simple, straightforward and... read more

We popped into the restaurant on the spur of the moment. It was Monday lunchtime and most places were closed. We were met with a buzz of conversation as the place was almost completely full. We had a table after a few minutes wait and then had a delicious meal. The antipasto was excellent and the pasta which followed was... More

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 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. Food here is typically Italian, simple and full of flavour. Well cooked and presented without a hint of trendy 'haute cuisine'. Staff are... 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

The place was very busy - then this was Saturday lunchtime and locals like to come here. The restaurant is in a very old building. The food is excellent local specialities. 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.
