Very nice but small trattoria visited mainly by locals. They have a small menu with several day specials(menu a prezzo fisso ). Prices are very reasonable and food is very tasty.

We visited this restaurant because of a recommendation in Lonely Planet. It had a nice dining room and the service was OK, however, the food was not at all appetizing. There were 2 set menus, one at €10.50 and another at €13.50. We chose to order the €13.50. We all ordered the spaghetti with Crab, and a sea food salad.... More

As said before: it is not so easy to have bad food in local restaurants in Italy and Osteria del Pozzo in Ancona is one typical example why we all love Italian cuisine. This place is great. We arrived late at 2pm but still had to wait a bit to be seated. Great food, good and friendly service as usual... More

Very romantic place with excellent fish food, well situated 😊 in the center of Ancona. The price level is moderate and wine is good. The restaurant looks nice.

You'll have lunch with the local workers when you eat here. For 12,50 you'll get two courses, wine and water. Huge portions, fresh daily menu. Higly recommended. Get there before 12:30 to snatch a table, although they move fast so you may get lucky later on as well!

I have been in Ancona for more than two weeks. Just as I thought I had tried all the good restaurants in town, I chanced upon Osteria del Pozzo last night and had the best dinner there. It is hidden in a narrow street in old-town Ancona with only a small sign lit outside. Inside the décor is modern but... More

on an alley street N of the Plaza de Plebiscito, it was a bit hard to find. someone there spoke English having been the US several times. We have NOT found a lot of English speakers on Italy's Adriatic coast as most of the folks who go there are Italian. We had a nice light pasta carbanaria and two large... More

I found this place just walking around the center of Ancona, looking for a place to dine early. The food was delicious and the waitress was very attentive. You can tell this is a family run restaurant with a solid local clientele, but they make tourists welcome as well. I ordered the baccala con patate al forno, and the house'... More

We chose the set menu of €13,00, offering a choice of two starters and main courses. Linguini verdi con scampi e carciofi were packed with flavour with generous slices of rustically cut artichoke but, sadly, with only one shell-on scampi. Secondo (main course) consisted of sardoncini, - grilled anchovies, which were delicious - with a diminutive grilled orata (sea bream... More
