I have read the positive reviews here and decided to try this locally acknowledged small restaurant. I am vegetarian and wanted to eat a piadina. All of contained meat. After asking the guy (owner?) at the counter if we can get a vegetarian version of any piadinas he refused it completely. So we could not eat anything and left the... More

As we were leaving Urbino we decided to try the local Piadina called Crescia at Il Buco. We were already quite full after eating lunch and ice cream and could only manage one between two people. It's tasty and very herby and comes with a recommendation. I would though suggest trying it on an empty stomach for the full experience.... More

The pizza here is light and of good taste (I had Aubergine) and the location at the corner of the Place of the Republic is just perfect.

This hole-in-the-wall type place is an institution in Urbino. Here they made fresh daily, pizza bianca (similar to focaccia without sauce or toppings) and pizza rossa (piazza bianca with tomato base). If you are coming to Urbino and want to sample some of Urbino’s best pizza at a true pizza al taglio (pizza by the slice sold at small take-away... More

This is what seemed a very popular pizzeria al taglio, i.e. where you take away the slices of pizza or where you eat them on a few high chairs in the pizzeria itself. We tried different kinds and the overall quality is very good, in particular the pizza stuffed with spinach and mozzarella cheese - absolutely delicious. On the other... More

Most of the restaurants in Urbino don't open until after 7 p.m., so we decided to give Il Buco a try. Located under the Church of Saint Francis, it's a small place that only serves three or four kinds of pizza and seats 6 or 7 people. We ordered slices of the margherita and the mushroom pizza and both were... More

A lovely crispy pizza, piping hot. You can sit outside and watch the world go by. A short walk from all the major attractions and plenty of shade on a hot day. Good salads are available here as well.Value for money.

. Simple but nice pizzeria at the center of Urbino. Excellent street food. I tasted the best 'crescia' with herbs (excellent, slightly bitter chicory) and first quality cheese (urbino's casciotta). Fair prices indeed.

Walking in Urbino seems like all they eat is crescia o piadine, so we decide to eat here for lunch..wish I had searched another place. The crescia was greasy and full of oil and really nothing special and expensive. Prefer the classic piadina romagnola.
