Went to Grotta di Barbarossa to have a romantic dinner with my husband (friends from the area highly recommended the place.), loved this restaurant!! The food was exceptional!

The food tasted delicious and the setting of the restaurant is very stylish. The service is also very friendly and they know how to run a restaurant! The right balance between privacy and attention. Very good value for your money.

I have dined there with my husband during our stay at Pesaro. There was no single dish I could separate as not great. All the wines served were just a perfect fit to each dish. The personnel is very helpful and polite and prices for the type of restaurant like that are even a bit low. Gabrielle - the owner... More
