OUR FAVOURITE RESTAURANTS... One of the questions we get asked the most is 'can you recommend a good restaurant?' Well there are so many that we (and our guests) love that it's hard to identify just one! So we have chosen five to give you a sense of the range of style and quality. But please ask us for our full list; it's the result of more than a decade of research! 1 Belvedere... T: 0734.9598014 If you don’t have a long Sunday afternoon to while away, find one. Then spend it at Belvedere Agriturismo where Enrico and his family will serve you endless plates of mouth-watering homemade antipasti, pastas, and a main course or two. There’s no English spoken but don’t worry, there’s no menu! And all for the price of a beer and a sandwich in a London pub! 2 Le Logge... T: 0733.506788 The elegant setting of Le Logge in an ancient palace contrasts charmingly with the friendly service in this stylish restaurant. Try the tasting menus, a succession of exquisite small dishes made with the fresh ingredients of the day. If you can’t decide on a dessert, try the trìs, substantial bite-sized servings of three scrumptious specialities. 3 L’Enoteca Bar e Vino... 4 5 T: 348.9035.257 If you are visiting the Thursday evening antiques market in Fermo, the only place to eat is the Enoteca. Book a table on the terrazza overlooking the square and feast on gourmet local delicacies each paired with local wines. Despite the subtlety of the food, you certainly won’t leave hungry. Da Silvio... T: 071.7360.507 In spring or autumn, drive the narrow winding road to Da Silvio. In summer you must park in a field at the top, but the walk down and climb up are absolutely worth it: magical views over the sea from this open-walled, timber-roofed eatery. The atmosphere is casual & relaxed, with superb freshly caught seafood. But it gets better... they have a shuttle bus down and, crucially, back up the hill! Il Picciolo di Rame... T: 348.3316.588 When we first arrived at Vestignano, an ancient hamlet nestling in the foothills of the Sibillini mountains, we were transported back 600 years to the old olive press which houses Il Picciolo di Rame.  Learn about the history and provenance of each traditional course as the plates, literally, pile up in front of you. This twelve course feast is an authentic  journey through Le Marche’s culinary history.
