Value for money and a good alternative to pizza or burgers for a quick lunch or snack. Quaint 50s deco and uniforms.

This place in front of the train station is like an italian fast-food: the speciality is crescia, a sort of pizza-sandwich made with a wood oven with various ingredients, but they also have very good meat, fried delicacies and other stuff. Hard to spend more that 10€

Portions are quite small for my liking. The retro style is charming at first, but after a couple of times that you go its rather fades the allure. The music is initially fascinating, but after a while you notice that its too loud. Service is behind the counter, the cook calls the name you gave at the time of paying:... More

Excellent food. Crescia is awesome; fried is both tasty and original, specially arancini with speck and provola cheese and mozzarella flavoured croquettes. Good desserts and beers too. Prices are absolutely reasonable, taking into account there's no waiting service. As for the '50s setting, guys you had a real nice inspiration! Definitively a smart shot.

As an English local to Foligno I have eaten here many times. Recently it was renovated, bringing a new selection of meals and a wonderful new set up. The atmosphere is very relaxed, with 50s music and style. There are quirky corners and friendly staff, and the food is marvellous to-boot! They even offer vegan cake!

Can't say anything about the food because I didn't eat there, but it's s handy place to get a drink or a cup of coffee or something while you're waiting for a train. (Station just across the street.) In mid-afternoon there was no-one else there except for someone who came in to pick up a takeaway. Friendly service. Prices for... More

The roast chicken is really good to take home or on a picnic. The potatoes are good too. I have never eaten here but it's got a really lively atmosphere and seems fun.

La Cresceria, in Foligno, is conveniently situated by the train station. Friendly staff and an interesting selection of well prepared, take-away food, which is otherwise unavailable on the train. There's lots of seating available, if the temptation to eat what you've ordered prevails!
