    Because the streets throughout Urbino are set on steep inclines reaching Taverna Degli Artisti on foot is equivalent to a gym workout. All the better to work off the great meal you will enjoy at this pretty little restaurant.

    Select from a list of 60 regional red wines; the pastas are homemade; the pizzas are cooked in a wood-fired oven. Among the culinary delights of Le Marche are of mushroom and truffle dishes and aged cheese. The friendly staff and good food will leave you satisfied and delighted! Thursday and Saturday Reservations recommended!

    The food was great, the service good, setting pleasing. It was Italy, expect the best when it comes to dining.

    Favorite Dish: Ravioli with fresh porcini mushrooms and walnuts - excellent!

    RISTORANTE "IL RAGNO D'ORO": Specialità Cresce Sfogliate

    by Cidricu Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a famous restaurant in Urbino since 1946, closed in Winter but crowded in Summer. It is THE place to go if you want to taste the original Crescia Sfogliata: a kind of big pancake that you can eat just like a sandwich with cheese, ham or vegetable. Of course, you have other dishes you can order: pizzas, meat, pasta...

    ***Last time I ate there: 09/2006***
    ***Number of times I ate there: several***

    Favorite Dish: The Crescia Sfogliata, coocked day by day by the women of Urbino. It looks like you're eating at their home.

    Ristorante Vecchia Urbino: Delicious local fare in a hidden-away treasure

    Interior at Vecchia Urbino - note chandeliers

    In 1985, Gabriele Monti opened a restaurant near the city gates in the oldest section of Urbino (which is saying something, as this place goes WAY back), and called it...Old Urbino. The goal was to integrate the locally-produced meats, grains, cheeses, vegetables and wines into something gastronomically spectacular, and the various guides all agree that Monti succeeded. The restaurant is quite charming, built into the side of the steep hill so that diners seated at the window are looking out onto a panoramic view of the Marche countryside. It also features a vaulted ceiling with chandeliers that are called "Ducal stars" -- I grew up calling them Moravian stars, but perhaps the Moravians got the idea from Urbino!

    We arrived at an unusually early hour for dinner (7:30) and had the place virtually to ourselves, but reservations are generally suggested.

    Because of the concentration on local dishes, we tried several, including a cheese plate, all accompanied by local wine. At least one of the entrees was not to my taste, but everything else was enjoyable and beautifully presented.

    A word to the wise: the walk from the Duomo is extremely steep. People with mobility problems might want to select a different establishment.

    Closed on Tuesdays.

    LA TRATTORIA DEL LEONE: A lovely place

    by Cidricu Updated Apr 2, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This small restaurant is located in the heart of the historical center of Urbino, quite near Piazza della Repubblica (the main place of the city). Waiters and owners are very friendly, professional and good cookers.
    The specialities are all from the area (the Montefeltro) and cooked with care.

    ***Last time I ate there: 09/2006***
    ***Number of times I ate there: 5***

    Favorite Dish: Here you need to try everything. Pasta is (of course) home made. As very local dishes, you can try the "Passatelli in brodo", the "Coniglio in porchetta" and taste the cheeses "Casciotta di Urbino" or "Pecorino di fossa".
    To follow your meal, ask for a bottle of local. All their wines are from the region of the Marches.
