San Giorgio Country House
Ranked #34 of 69 Ascoli Piceno B&B and Inns
Reviewed 18 March 2013

This lovely country house was very inviting from the moment we walked in the door. Our room was small but very comfortable with a lovely view over the hills of Ascoli Piceno. We had the most amazing multi course lunch served by Peppe and Caesare who are absolutely delightful and so kind. They even adapted the menu to a vegetarian one for me. The house has been beautifully restored and is wonderfully located just above the city which is easily reached on foot.

These friendly hosts made staying at the San Giorgio the highlight of our trip to Italy! This small agriturismo inn located in the hills high above Ascoli Piceno with appealing country and mountain views, has small but well appointed rooms. There is also a coffee room for guests where you can get free espresso, cappuccinos or hot chocolate at your convenience or you can sit on the large covered patio where Pepe is likely to give you a beer and biscoti. Even though there are nice restaurants in town, I would not miss Danielas dinner! There is no menu. She prepares a new wonderful dinner each night with wine, appetizer, pasta, meat, dessert, cheese, and liquors ( made on site) served by Cesare in the 1804 vaulted dining room. We could barely walk after this very reasonably priced banquet ($15 E). The breakfast was equally good. We were sad to leave and look forward to a return visit.

Multo grazie Cesare, Peppe e Danielle for our very nice time in your guesthouse and for the best meals we had that holiday. We had a great room for a very good price and Danielle made an experience of our dinner. You were all very nice. We will recommend you to our friends and some day we will come back!
Ciao!

Pregho, mi dispiace per scivere in inglese, ma parlo italiano male. Countryhouse San Giorgio is a splendid place to stay. It is beautiful, comfortable, and peaceful. The hosts, Peppe and Daniela, are the most friendly, talented, and delightful people you could ever hope to meet. Peppe knows the region inside and out, and can direct you to historical and beautiful places which the guidebooks don't know about. Daniela makes the most delicious food imaginable. She does it all: pastry, pasta, meat dishes, vegetables. Heaven itself could not have a better chef. She and Cesare also pair the dishes with cheeses, homemade jams, and wines that are perfect for the meal. The food here is even better than what I have had in Bologna and Milano. Peppe has lovingly restored the country house to perfection. The rooms are spacious, beautifully appointed, and pleasurable to simply dwell in. The bathrooms are state-of-the-art, absolutely clean, light and airy. The grounds are beautiful. The place is absolutely tranquil. The jovial, cheerful and caring spirit of Peppe, Daniela, Cesare, and Natalia are evident in every aspect of the bed and breakfast. We never wanted to leave. The country house is situated just a few minutes outside of Ascoli Piceno, and on the road to other picturesque villages in the region. You are in the heart of Le Marche, but always feel you have slipped away from all the stress and busy-ness of modern life. I have rarely seen a place that is both so "homey" and so consummately professional in how it is run. Don't miss this opportunity!

My husband, daughters, and I stayed at the Country House San Giorgio for 10 days this spring. It is a small quiet inn located in the beautiful village of Rosara and is surrounded by snow capped mountains. Rosara is situated just a few minutes by car from Ascoli Pinceno. Our hosts, Daniela, Pepe and Cesare, were extreamly helpful, friendly, and always willing to give us advice regarding local sightseeing and hikes. The day after we arrived Daniela and Pepe even drove us to the car rental in town and helped us rent our Fiat Panda. During our stay every effort was made to make us feel comfortable and a part of their family. The inn also has a small restaurant which serves a truly wonderful breakfast for its guests. We also always returned for dinner since the food was so exceptional. There never seemed to be a need to eat anywhere else!!! Dinner always concisted of multiple courses of freshly prepared local dishes. In conclusion, the rooms were very comfortable and clean, and the food was simply outstanding.

My husband and I had dinner at Country House San Giorgio last weekend and we had such an extraordinary experience that we feel compelled to share it with anybody who is planning to visit this area. As a testimony to how excited we were about the place, I should disclose that I have never written a restaurant review before, despite the fact that we have traveled extensively across Europe and the United States, and are passionate about trying interesting restaurants.

The location:
Country House San Giorgio is an old farmhouse in Rosara, a small hamlet just a few miles outside Ascoli Piceno, in the Marche region. This is a yet undiscovered gem in Central-Eastern Italy, with beautiful hilly landscapes and quaint medieval villages. The locals are extremely friendly and proud of their food traditions.
The restaurant is comprised of two rooms, with some of the old stone-walls still exposed, and a cozy fireplace in one of the rooms. Apparently, the restaurant is very popular with the locals (always a good sign) and it was fairly crowded on the day that we visited. However, this is not a loud place with kids running around, but rather a relaxing oasis were families and friends get together to enjoy good food and wine. In addition to the restaurant, several rooms are available for people who are interested in staying overnight.

The food:
Our dinner was a real feast of local delicacies, with an impressive variety of dishes throughout the entire meal. I should specify that food was served in the old Italian tradition: there is no need to choose from a menu, the plates keep coming and one gets to try everything that the kitchen makes for the day.
Our appetizers included local cheeses and cured meats, a delicious frittata with local mushrooms, polenta with sausage and the "always imitated but never duplicated" stuffed olives from Ascoli (we have seen them on menus in the Village in New York, but it is only in Ascoli that you will find the real ones, made with "olive in salamoia" and based on a recipe that has been passed down through generations).
As a first course we had a choice between ravioli with ricotta and spinach in the style of Norcia (a small town in southeastern Umbria famous for many culinary delicacies), and tagliatelle in a duck ragout.
The main course was a delicious selection of grilled meats (pork kebabs and short ribs with roasted potatoes) and a roast of veal with balsamic pearl onions.
Finally, we closed with a to-die-for Zuppa Inglese (despite the name, this is an Italian custard-based dessert), genziana (a liqueur made from an infusion of genziana roots), and a licorice-flavored grappa.

The hosts:
The manager of Country House San Giorgio is Peppe (short for Giuseppe) Frollo, an incredibly pleasant and friendly man who has spent most of his life in the restaurant business. Signor Peppe is helped by his son and daughter in the dining rooms, while his wife Daniela manages the kitchen. They are all extremely attentive and gracious, and make the whole experience of dining at their place a real pleasure.
If you have a dream of dining an a typical Italian place, where the food is delicious, the hosts are friendly and make every effort to make their customers feel as if they are part of the family, and the surroundings are simply beautiful, you cannot miss the Country House San Giorgio.

Our bill for the entire dinner was the final surprise. Suffice it to say that it makes it hard to justify ever eating at home again......

Susan and I had not been with our friends Peppe and Daniela since they sold their Ascoli restaurant, La Locandiera, and went on their adventure to Australia. Our history together is friendship, food and fun. When we heard of Country House we immediately made plans and finally arrived this September. At Country House they are able to offer their excellent hospitality along with the same fantastic La Locandiera cuisine. We are not objective, we are good friends, but our review ls on target. You can have the same relationship with Peppe and Daniela that we enjoy. From our first visit to their restaurant, their hospitality encouraged the friendship that still endures. Thank you, friends, for such great care and amenities. We wish you the best and can't wait to return..
