What else can be more comforting on a rainy October day than lunch at Locanda del Palio? We had a wonderful lunch consisting of a taste of the local cheeses and ciauscolo salami as a starter, followed by two marvelous pasta dishes. When I asked the owner if and where one could buy truffles in this area he told me... More

As you might guess from its name, this restaurant is a depository of town life. It is filled with memorabilia and serves as the place for local families to enjoy a traditional meal out. Good choice if you want solid fare and seek a feel for Fermo. The team of relatives who run it aim to please.

You can find food from the local tradition, perfectly prepared and at a good price. The "Olive all'Ascolana" and the "Maccheroncini" from Campofilone are just exceptional and you would never stop eating them!

Run by a brother and sister under the watchful eye of papa, this place serves mostly meat dishes that you would find in Tuscany and Umbria. Very few fish dishes and then only on special days like friday. The service was attentive and the food was solid. The tagliata of veal was excellent as was the breasola rocket salad.

Wonderful spot just off the Piazza deal Popolo. Nicely lit, great menu, reasonable wine list. Not many tourists in Fermo- so it isn't saying much to note that it is all locals. But on a Tuesday night at 9:30 -FULL with locals. Great pasta dishes- Pappardelle with boar ragu And tagliatelle with porcini Skip the big salad ( it was... More

We had reserved a table outside for dinner, luckily, as the place was almost completely full, with mostly Italian customers. The restaurant has a spacious terrace outside, and inside is also very nice with decorations of antique helmets, shields and armor. The food is simple, straightforward and full of flavor. We started with the typical Oliva Ascolana, deepfried balls of... More

We popped into the restaurant on the spur of the moment. It was Monday lunchtime and most places were closed. We were met with a buzz of conversation as the place was almost completely full. We had a table after a few minutes wait and then had a delicious meal. The antipasto was excellent and the pasta which followed was... More

Over the years I have had the good fortune to establish a friendship with this lovely, friendly family run Locanda, I always enjoy my visits and am... More
