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

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

This local restaurant is located in Piazzale Azzolino, a parking area, a few meters from the main Piazza del Popolo (near the post office). There are actually three places to eat in this piazzale. The decor is charming, drawing on Fermo's historic palio with lances, photos, etc decorating the walls. The food is good and there were several locals eating... More
