The restaurant is located in the lovely square in San Ginesio and the young waitstaff were friendly and helpful. When the mixed cheese plate arrived, I was a bit concerned, since cheese i had bought at the gourmet counter at the local Coal supermarket that looked less mass produced. The best thing we ordered were the olives ascolane. Most people... More

This is a favourite of my family. Every visit we come back here for the great pizzas and friendly service. During the summer you need to book a table as it can get very busy. This is the one place locally that you'll bump into other Brits holidaying in the area. It's a magnet for them! During the summer at... More

Home made pasta, delicious in every sauce from Tartuffe, porcini mushroom or tomatoes ... Local entree salumi ... Tiramisu. We ate in the open area, in the middle of the square. The kids enjoy the food and the local band concert ... A fantastic evening. I choose to spend the summer holiday in this area by inspiration in January ...... More

In our opinion the place to go in the square. The outside area was packed but we were seated and served promptly inside - which is a nicely furnished bright room. Service was excellent and the food was great.

Acting on the other reviews on TripAdvisor, we chose this lovely little family-run restaurant for dinner. We were not disappointed! The couple were very welcoming and attentive. We ordered a selection of locally produced antipasti and everything was amazing, and with very generous portions. For 'il primo' we had cinghiale (wild boar) with polenta and for 'il secondo' we ate... More

We had the mixed antipasti which was generous and very good, followed by excellent pizzas. Friendly service in a beautiful location on the piazza. Good value. Highly recommended.

Always enjoy visiting this venue when I am in San Ginesio. The white pizzas are always wonderful and lamb chops have never disappointed either. Great to sit outside in the piazza as well.

This is a unique restaurant in a wonderful piazza. Great selection of locally sourced produce freshly cooked. Staff very friendly/helpful. Advisable to book your table. Usually closed on Mondays evenings.

There are three restaurants listed for San Ginesio but not Terra Nostra which is an omission as it is the best and most popular restaurant in town. When you list it I will review it. Many thanks.
