Modern Italian cooking prepared and presented very well. Wine selection is also great. We had a great evening and if you are in the area of Pesaro you should really pay a visit to this restaurant. Make sure you dress properly. Unfortunately preparing the bill etc took quite some time.

We visited in July 2016 and had taster menus (2 styles - fish and assorted) and were massively impressed with the quality and execution of each dish. The wine choices were great and well paired and staff were attentive but not in your face. Loved it and will keep visiting each time I go to Cattolica! (Only 25 euros in... More

We went back to La Canonica after our enjoyful visits last year. The kitchen/chef has evolved further and the menu/food is just outstanding. We went 2 times and we realy enjoyed the friendly service, the great choice of local wines, and the excellent food and setting. The brodetto is one of the best we had so far. Great price/quality.

I came here on a foggy night in November. It was cold and dark outside and we parked at the car park outside the walls of this village. The restaurant is 100 meters inside the walls, it turned out to be really pleasant inside. A warm fire had been lit in the fireplace and the table was ready. We ordered... More

We wanted to walk in the hills of the Parco San Bartolo above Pesaro, and eat. Our hotel suggested la Canonica in CasteldiMezzo. We made our way to Focaro and along to the restaurant, expecting nice Italian hill fare. Our welcoming English-speaking waiter explained the unusual menu...and off we went: a splendid and exciting meal, beautifully presented and no more... More

A real gem on the Adriatic Coast close to Pesaro and Gabicce. Located in a small village called Casteldimezzo. You can eat outside on the terrace overlooking the Marche's rolling hills. Very friendly staff, great food. We went there with the family 2 times in 1 week, and it was a great experience both times. Great pastas, seafood and T-bone... More

After my first visit 4 years ago the meal at this restaurant went straight to the top of my all time best meals. Set in the beautiful hills just north of Pesaro this is an outstanding restaurant and a credit the people who run it and work in it. I was worried about returning in case it had lost it... More

We had a great meal in the restaurant. Really great experience ...it was something new for me. The Location is lovely. All the food is ecologically sustainable, coming from Romagna and Marche. They research for every single dish.

Went back July 2013 and my previous review still holds - everything was great and the Canonica team was as friendly as ever! Wonderful setting and quality food at very attractive pricing.

What can I add to all the positive comments about this wonderful restaurant? It’s a beautiful place with stunning views and they serve food on a gastronomical level (if you ask me, they deserve a Michelin star) but not at astronomical prices. We had the fish menu (menu mare) with 3 different starters, a main and dessert for only 44... More
