We were impressed by this little restaurant. Prompt, friendly service and good hot food. The staff seemed a bit young though eager to please. We were seated quickly and our appetiser arrived within five minutes. Our main course Stoccafisso -- dried cod made with potatoes was excellent but I am told when the original owners run this restaurant the Stoccafisso was twice as good as it is now. Regardless, the price was good as was the service and the food itself. Walking to the restaurant from the Grand Hotel Palace was treacherous. After nearly falling we continued on through broken sidewalks single file. We had to walk single file because of the traffic which raced by with complete disregard for pedestrians. The city of Ancona is at fault for not ensuring the safety of its citizens and tourists. The roads are in good shape but not the sidewalks. Unfit for the elderly who use walkers or wheelchairs. Absolutely not safe for children of any age.
I was here in May, the local it seem rather old fashioned and very popular restaurant trattoria as is called in Italy. After one rather first not positive impression, once sit down it's possible to taste one excellent fine italian's kitchen. It have different dishes not expensive ,meat fish you can have everything...but iwas hitten from the really good codfish to "Anconetana" . excellent value for money
One of my fav places in Ancona with always very fresh and good food guaranted. The antispati de la mar completo at only 16€ is fantastic and so much better than the ones served in other places! Also the scofassi is perfect. The decoration is very simple and the price cheap so you shall be aware that you go for quality not for the decor.
I tried puntarelle and their masterpiece: stocafisso with potatoes. The side dish, puntarelle, was simply amazing. Mixed grilled fish seemed good but too much for just one person like me, stocafisso was just average. Potatoes were raw and terrible. Not a bad place though. Go there with friends and enjoy ;)
