The location of Il Girarrosto is great, just a few steps from the main square you find it in a small square under umbrellas.

We had some grilled vegetables and a pasta with a pesto like sauce which was served from the pan at our table. The pasta and the vegetables tasted good but both contained a lot of oil (especially the pasta), which made it feel pretty heavy on the stomach the rest of the day. The red house wine was ok but not as good as some others we have had in the region.

We were served by three different waiters during our dinner, which felt a bit weird and doesn't help the waiters to make a connection with the customers. In turn, this doesn't help the chances of returning for a next visit.

In this university town it's hard to find a reliable place to have lunch after visiting the palazzo, with students occupying the outdoor spaces of the main square. We happened into this small resto just off the square, and ordered the antipasto platter for 2. At 14 Euros a head this seemed a bit steep, but the amount and quality of food, from fresh cheese, to salamis and proscuitto, tomatoes, and other regional appetizers all accompanied by fresh made flatbread was well worth every cent. By itself it was a filling and satisfying lunch - no need for a pasta to complete your meal unless you are absolutely starving.

We ate here twice, only because the food was good and the location was handy (very central). However, on both occasions we were served by the same waitress who lacked any form of pleasantness. Her service was abrupt and bad-mannered, she was impatient whilst taking orders and she never smiled. We guessed it was because the restaurant was popular and she didn't need to be pleasant. We declined to return.

Located in the very heart of Urbino, the outdoor setting is very nice, directly on a square under big umbrellas. The waitress was not kind to us, but we were in a hurry so we decided to have a seat anyway. The food is typical of the Urbino region, they say the fresh pasta, like ravioli and cappelletti, is home made, maybe it's true. We had a typical starter (ham, cheese), fresh pasta and grilled meat, everything was good but not excellent. Decent value for price, but I would not come back here.
