Best location!

Best place to feel local! Great for pre-dinner drinks. This season the menu is not perfect but OK for one-time visit. The atmosphere is unbeatable!

Seems the new onwners have made a great restuarant into a waste! The menu is of very low quality and you can only chose the cheapest on the list. As they except any big groop of tourists, not making a reservation but just walking by; they can not handle the overcrowded restaurant with there limited staff. resulting is your food... More

I have been going to Osteria dell Arancio for many years. I discovered that this year it was under new management. I recently took friends from overseas and was very disappointed with the food and the service. We received our meals at different times, waited a long time for meals, that were very average to say the least. They will... More

We come to the area each summer for the last 5 years and often eat here - eating out in the square is great on a summers evening and the cool style of the place is definitely appealing, unfortunately the food is distinctly average for the relatively toppy price. Staff nearly always speak good English, and more charming/casual in style... More

After we arrived at Grottamme and settled down on a nice B&B in the Borgo, and decided to have dinner at the terrace of this osteria. It was just around the corner of our B&B. We did not take a look at the menu first and that was stupid! First: We asked for water and a half liter white house... More

You know that feeling when you are obviously a tourist ( even though we speak a very decent italian which is very appreciated in most places) and get treated differently than locals. This happenef here and I think it should be known. Bad table, poor service , uneesponsive to demands of changing place. Ou money was still good for them... More

We had creamy cod for antipasti, wonderful foccaci bread, baked cod with chicory, mashed potatoes and stuffed red peppers. Luckily Italians want the meal to last hours, it takes that long to savor and enjoy this wonderful meal, of course with a bottle of white wine.

We found the atmosphere of this restaurant cozy and relaxing as the music was soft and the staff friendly. Go here if you want to know more about local wines and see how they match the local cuisine. Interesting menu. Maybe a bit expensive.

We overlooked this restaurant when we went to our B&B in the afternoon but at night this charming Osteria on the square in Grottammare comes alive. The food was fabulous, one of our best meals in Italy. The serivce (our waiter spoke English, thankfully) was great.
