Very friendly staff, walked us through the entire menu (as it was in Italian). Portions were very generous at great value. Would highly recommend.
I recently enjoyed some delicious meals at La Deg Osteria while in Ancona for business. My friend and I found La Deg here on TripAdvisor and decided to give the restaurant a try based on the numerous positive reviews. The locale appears to have previously been a corner storefront business, converted into a tastefully decorated restaurant. The theme is nautical and tables were nicely decorated with fabric tablecloths and good quality service ware (dishes, utensils, and glassware). There is ample seating in a spacious dining room and additional seating outdoors on a terrace when the weather permits. This is the first time, ever, that I frequented the same restaurant on the same day for lunch and dinner. I made the exception to return for dinner based on the excellent lunch we had earlier. Service was both friendly and attentive during our meals. While there were only a handful of diners at the lunch hour, La Deg was extremely busy in the evening. There was a discounted worker's menu for lunch, but we decided to try items on the regular menu. We both started our meal with a tasting of three types of raw oysters (2 of each type) that were served on a bed of ice with sliced lemons and perfectly shucked. Two of the oyster types came from France and the third was from Ireland. They were extremely fresh and a delight to eat. I followed this with a pasta dish comprised of guitar-style noodles topped with wild, locally harvested mussels (muscoli) that had been removed from their shells and combined with sun-dried tomatoes and seaweed. The portion size was generous and the pasta presented an explosion of flavors on my palette. Excellent. My friend enjoyed a Carbonara pasta made with fresh tuna in place of the usually pancetta or guanciale. The pasta was served with a semi-cooked egg yolk (60 degrees C) that he broke to toss into the pasta. The pasta was plated with splashes of squid ink for dipping. He remarked that it was one of the best pasta dishes that he had ever eaten. W
