Angelo aveva cose nuovo sulla menu, particularamente il maiallino al forno. Era squizzito. Angel had some new things on the menu particularly the oven-roasted pork. It was fantastic.

Nice authentic restaurant in the heart of the Marche Mountains. Fantastic "padrone". Good autentic food , all home made , slow food-kitchen: dishes adapted to the seasons and good regional wines. When travelling in this area, it is worthwhile having lunch or supper over there. Buon appetito !

Thank Anton V
