“Very good restaurant in a medieval athmosphere”
Reviewed 14 November 2011

"Locanda" in italian is a local restaurant with home cooking dishes..
This is a very good "locanda", just 5 minutes far from the main square of Fermo.
I have ordered a yummy "antipasto" (appetizer) with ham, cheese and bruschetta and a very good meat dish (tagliata).
Service is good, portions aren't excessive and the check was fair.
the only bad thing about this place...that it's closed on Sunday!!
In my next trip in Umbria, I'll back in this restaurant to have another good lunch..

“Best place in town: excellent traditional food, attentive staff, moderate price.”
Reviewed 7 October 2011

If you are not looking for experimental cooking and modern, trendy décor, this is the restaurant to go if you are in Fermo. For it simply delivers what the name "locanda" stands for: excellent home cooking, use of local produce and consistency with the traditional recepices (limited selection of fish on Fridays only). Located in the ancient caves of a medieval building (but with a pleasant terrace in season), this restaurant offers you all the best you can expect in this region. Olive ascolane (fried, stuffed olives), Tagliatelline di Campofilone (home-made pasta in ragu' sauce) and Tagliata al rosmarino (rosemary flavoured chopped entrecote) are my favourites. Be sure not to miss the unbeatable Tiramisu' or the unbelievable Salame di cioccolato. Small but very reliable and extremely affordable selection of local wines (white Pecorino and red Rosso Piceno, above all): if in doubt, the owner and his son are happy to help you choose. If you think that the traditional, good Italian restaurants are lost for ever, clearly you need to see this one.

“Good food with local decor”
Reviewed 24 November 2008

This local restaurant is located in Piazzale Azzolino, a parking area, a few meters from the main Piazza del Popolo (near the post office). There are actually three places to eat in this piazzale.

The decor is charming, drawing on Fermo's historic palio with lances, photos, etc decorating the walls. The food is good and there were several locals eating lunch when we were there in November.

The menu is only in Italian but be sure to ask about the daily special. Prices are typical for Marche in a centro storico.

Thank BrunoAP
