So very clean with wonderful waitstaff who have some English! Food did not disappoint..lovely gnocchi and flavorful home made pasta with shrimp and calamari in cream pistachio sauce! Appetizer called “creme brûlée “was so good will get it again on my next visit!!

We were early and the first guests that evening. The service was very attentive, no blemish here. However, the food was unimaginative without much flavour and partially not really warm. Clearly a disappointment, even more so in the face of the prices. No recommendation!

Slightly sombre, quiet but polished atmosphere, food was magnificent. The pasta dishes in particular were excellent. Prices incredibly fair for the level of restaurant, service was a bit slow but perfectly friendly.

We visited Ascoli one evening with a friend and had a very nice dinner here. We shared some starters which very good, some fried local stuff, but nothing special. Then came the pasta - we tried the traditional ravioli with apples and nuts and the...More

Elegant with a sophisticated menu. If you like simple food, move on. I had the Adriatic fried seafood dish and it was incredibly light, tasty, and with a great selection of fish and seafood. The wine options would make Bacchus go crazy. A bit pricy,...More
