La Taverna del Monaco

This restaurant is a good option both for lunch or dinner. Great fish and seafood together with pizzas make your mouth watering. In the evenings the place is often very crowded and the ambiance is merry and lively. They even have karaoke nights.


The Marche (or the Marches) region has a rich, varied cuisine that has developed out of poverty and the need to make the most from what little there was. Here you will find many rustic, tasty recipes, often with a fish base. Typical dishes include: brodetto all’Anconetana (a hearty Adriatic fish soup, similar to bouillabaisse) and stoccafisso all’Anconetana (salted cod – Ancona style). Don’t miss stuffed Olives Ascolana Style.
