Fodor's Review

You won't find nouvelle cuisine here, at one of Ascoli Piceno's oldest restaurants. The owners pride themselves on meaty local specialties such as olive ascolane (olives stuffed with minced meat, breaded and deep-fried), maccheroncini alla contadina (homemade short pasta in a lamb, pork, and veal sauce), and bistecca di toro (bull steak).

The perfect BULL

At the beginning of march the two of us had a meat-dinner at this place. We ate about 1kg of a very tender and juicy bull bistecca. The meat was probably for 3 or 4 people so the waiter did not recommend any side dishes. In fact we had enough. The bistecca was served on a very hot stone, so if the meat is to rare just leave on the hot stone and it will grill to perfection. If you are in Ascoli go there. It's on the first floor of a building on the

Piazza del Popolo, which by the way is a very enchanting place. Not touristy at all!
