I was taken here last week for a multi-course seafood dining experience. I found the waitstaff very helpful and the food wonderful; the best local catch and dessert. If one is staying anywhere in the Marche region I recommend checking this one out

What should have been a really good meal entirely spoilt by poor service. My husband and I ordered just a main course, our friends ordered a starter and a main course. Our main course arrived at the same time as their starter. Then, they waited and waited. The restaurant, almost empty when we arrived had meanwhile filled up and it took us a long time to attract the attention of a waiter, and ask where their meal was. We received no satisfactory answer and they got no food. On about the third attempt, a waitress snapped at us “cant you see we’re busy?”. It finally arrived, about 40 minutes after their starter – they’d clearly forgotten and had had to start from scratch. The food was good, and the place dog-friendly – not very people friendly, though. The manager plied us with free drinks on the way out, but that didn’t make up for a poor experience.

This restaurant has quality food. It might not have the prettiest of interiors, the food and friendly staff easily make up for it. We ordered a fish starter which we luckily shared because it was huge! We chose fish for the main dishes as well and were pleasantly surprised by the quality, especially for the money. This was the best restaurant in the area we visited.

We ate a family meal together. With Italian cousins we were 21. The service was excellent and the food was fresh

Really big restaurant with at least + 100 seats on the terras. Quality of the food is unfortunately not as high as the possible customers...We had the cold antipasta of fish and the ones that ate this were sick the same evening...The pasta portions are extremely big and therefore not tastefull. For us a no go. There are better places in Mondavio on 5 km distance...
