“Great value for money, delicious home cooked food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

We were directed to this restaurant by our hotel; otherwise we would never have come across it. Unpretentious surroundings (which we like), unpretentious but delicious food, served piping hot in 'man sized' portions! In fact, my only 'complaint' would be that I couldn't finish it all as the portions really were gigantic ....
Nice, friendly owners and staff.
Last but not least - no horrible TV blaring away in the corner, as are to be found in so many Italian restaurants of this ilk, or even in more so-called upmarket ones. So one could enjoy one's meal in peace without the racket of interminable game shows!

“True Italian food and atmosphete”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

We had lunch here and enjoyed the place. It was a nice surprise that they had pizza's for lunch, it is often just served at dinner in Italy. The food was full of flavor and the house red wine souple and nice.
The armosphere is truely Italian, so quite barren and basic and only Italian customers. We loved it!

“Nice place, good food but very small place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

Al Cantuccio it is a traditional restaurant from Urbino, Italy. Out from the centre but not very difficult to arrive you can find a small restaurant with a very high density of tables.
This aspect becomes critical when the place is crowded and the people wait also outside to find a place. The space between the guests is a few centimetres and you don't have the intimate space to feel perfect.
The positive aspects are that quality of food and the service has been relatively fast the high rates, the preparations simple but tasty.
I eat with my friends the Caciotta di Urbino con olive marinate (Cheese from Urbino with marinate olives) and Ravioli pasticciati (ragu e panna) (Pasta dishes - Ravioli filled with herbs with sauces of cream and ragu).
We drink a typical white wine from the region - Bianchello del Metauro. Very good, fresh and tasty.
The average price per dish on the 7-8 €, valid for this quality and place.
Maybe i will return to taste other dishes. a less crowded day ...
