Run by a brother and sister under the watchful eye of papa, this place serves mostly meat dishes that you would find in Tuscany and Umbria. Very few fish dishes and then only on special days like friday. The service was attentive and the food was solid. The tagliata of veal was excellent as was the breasola rocket salad.

Wonderful spot just off the Piazza deal Popolo. Nicely lit, great menu, reasonable wine list. Not many tourists in Fermo- so it isn't saying much to note that it is all locals. But on a Tuesday night at 9:30 -FULL with locals. Great pasta dishes- Pappardelle with boar ragu And tagliatelle with porcini Skip the big salad ( it was... More

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 full of flavor. We started with the typical Oliva Ascolana, deepfried balls of... 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
