Living in Le Marche for a few years now, we are quite spoiled when it comes to food, wine, extra virgin olive oil... Lu Cuccelo is an off the beaten path local "resto" (its location is worth the detour). The menu is not extensive but true to the region. I believe the pasta is made on premises. Good cheeses. Best...

This restaurant is hidden in the center of the beautiful town Ripatransone; however they don't have a sunny terrace the inside of the restaurant is really nice and decorated in Italian style. It's a pitty for an Italian restaurant with such an elaborated pizza menu card that they don't serve pizza during lunch in the week (and it's not mentioned... More

Tucked away in a side street of this picturesque hilltop town. Lu Cuccelo is a favourite with the locals and always busy so booking is essential. Basic home cooked food mainly pasta and pizza dishes. Portions are large and excellent value most dishes are 6 euros.

Quaint place, with pleasant atmosphere, great staff and delicious pizza (we haven't had anything else). They offer a good selection of domestic and imported beers, if you're into it.

Restaurant discovered just by coencidence turned out to be a top one! Nice, local atmosphere and helpful staff added value to a delicious two course meal (lovely pasta and top class arrosticini with grilled tomatoes) and very good local wine. Very busy at lunch time, so definitely don't recommend it if you want to have a quick meal. But it's... More

Worst restaurant I've ever been to in Italy!! We had to wait for 1 1/2 hour to get our food and the waitress who served us was extremely unfriendly. Friday is indeed karaoke-evening and is to be avoided if you want to go there anyway..

Ripatransone is a small town and in the weekend Lu Cuccelo is packed with locals. We only had pizza and and these were very good. Friday is karaoke night so maybe not the best evening for a romantic dinner. Very good and informal atmosphere. Closed on mondays
