Very nice place off the beaten track in Ancona. Small restaurant with only a few tables and a nice tent with a view opposite the street which should be great in the summer. Carefully prepared dishes, nice wine list and delicious deserts. To top it up comes the professional service with the staff caring for your every need yet being... More

We came upon Osteria del Baffo by chance and had a great night in the tent across the road from the kitchen. The waiter and two waitresses were knowledgeable, competent, helpful and courteous. Good English is spoken. We ate well off a good menu and would highly recommend it.

Baffo is an institution in Ancona. Located on the outskirts of Ancona, it's a place that where locals like to eat. Thirty years ago the atmosphere was rustic and the menu was made up of classic dishes that were well prepared. The offerings now are lighter and there's a predominance of fish dishes but you can still find some of... More

Dear Buon_gusto_56, I would like to thank you for this review! Your effort in retracing our history in just a bunch of lines is somewhat impressive! As you noted, we do have dishes whose recipes come from the "birth" of this place as a restaurant, such as the "Bucatini del Baffo" whose tasty sauce keep on being one of our... More

We stumbled across this restaurant having searched out the shoreline walk (another amazing discovery) and there it was where the track reached the top of the cliff. Now, every time we do that walk, we reward our efforts with lunch at this fantastic spot. Although it is a fish restaurant they have always been happy to modify the dishes for... More

The place is a kind of strange: you´re seated in a porch whose continuity with the restaurant is interrupted by a road, but the view towards the cliff and the see is breathtaking! The food is good, but the prices are not cheap.

When looking for a restaurant with a panoramic view near Ancona we happened to spot this restaurant tucked away just off the main road. We didn't realise it was so well respected and reviewed on Tripadvisor so we counts ourselves lucky to have noticed it. What a lovely spot! Small but with excellent views from the beautiful terrace and such... More
