Ristorante Rosina
Monteroberto (AN)

.................................................................google.maps

On the road from Cupramontana, about halfway down the hill, as you head towards Jesi, on the left you'll find this restaurant known and recommended for its home-style cooking, so much so, that the place is always packed. Well-known for miles around, there is no need to advertise because word of mouth does an excellent job and people have been coming here, sure of a good meal, for decades. The restaurant first opened its doors back in 1973 by Signora Rosina who is still in charge of the kitchen brigade, along with her son, Andrea, and her daughter-in-law, Sabrina. Ristorante Da Rosina is definitely a monument to the essence of the Marche region and of being “Marchigiani”, a veritable icon, no ifs and buts about it. There is nothing fancy here and no highbrow pretence, but it is welcoming and there is a warm, family atmosphere. On the menu you'll find all of the traditional Marche-style dishes typical of this hilly area that lies amongst the olive groves and the Verdicchio vineyards. They still make their own pasta, rolled out by hand; the kitchen turns out inviting platters of tagliatelle, cannelloni and the Marche's own version of baked lasagne (with very little béchamel sauce), the vincisgrassi. The roast rabbit in porchetta with garlic and wild fennel is still prepared the old-fashioned way, just as is the stuffed pigeon. The charcoal fire is kept going constantly, to grill excellent meats such as beef and lamb. Some can still make room for a platter of mixed fried foods that includes a variety of meats and vegetables, and don't forget the Ascoli-style breaded, stuffed olives – those, too, are homemade. The choice of wines, ample and carefully thought out, offers the best Verdicchio, Rosso Conero and Lacrima di Morro labels for your dining pleasure. The prices are always appropriate. You'll have a great meal here – count on it.

Il Gelso (The Mulberry Tree) is located in the area near Fabriano, nestled between the hills and nearby Monte Cucco (1,556 m.), nearly on the border between the regions of Le Marche and Umbria. The farm extends over an area of 360 hectares and includes crops such as durum wheat, spelt, forage, pulses, corn, vegetables and over one hundred heads of cattle of the Marchigiana breed as well as pigs, sheep and poultry – all raised according to the standards governing organic farming. A variety of activities take place here, in a natural and rustic environment. The hospitality facilities include eight rooms and two apartments. There is a teaching farm, a laboratory for curing and dressing meats where the owners prepare their own salumi, in particular, the famous salame di Fabriano. Anyone who is looking for nature will find here the ideal spot to get back into contact with the open fields, the woods and animals in a quiet atmosphere that leaves one feeling renewed. Under the careful guidance of Emanuela, a restaurant has been added, serving food that is especially sought after by those who favor the simple, wholesome dishes of local tradition. The pasta is all home-made, the old-fashioned way, and the meats (beef and veal, pork, lamb, poultry) are all highly recommended as all of the livestock is raised right there on the farm and fed with farm-grown products. The sweets, too, are home-made and include the typical tozzetti for dipping in dessert wine, ciambellone cake suitable for breakfast, a snack or dessert and the round anise-flavored ciambelline all'anice . The swimming pool and solarium are reserved exclusively for guests who delight in the cool respite from the hot summer days. A very popular activity is horseback riding, with outings on horseback and short courses for children. Guests also love the mountain biking excursions on the white paths that crisscross the surrounding hills and the nature walks in the Gola della Rossa Park near the well-known Frasassi Caves. Also in the vicinity of the farm, on the beech-covered slopes of Monte Cucco, the intrepid can go hang-gliding and paragliding.

Al Crepuscolo
Agriturismo - Recanati (Mc)

..................................................................google.maps

Recanati immediately brings to mind the works of the poet Giacomo Leopardi, in which he describes the hills, the stillness that follows a storm, the moon in the sky, the immensity of the silence. And it is up there, in the area of Montefano, in the midst of silver-leafed olive trees and sweeping horizons, that the Gabrielloni family has prepared an amazing refuge for anyone wishing to enjoy the infinite tranquillity of this marvellous corner of the Marche. It had been the family home and now, carefully and lovingly renovated, it has been named “Al Crepuscolo” (At Dusk). Open to guests, its interior reveals and conserves all the small details of life as it was, to pass on the memories still alive in each single brick, in the fireplace chain, in the planked oak cupboard. But what is more precious is the atmosphere one breathes and relives in the serene beatitude that only those with profound roots in the land can give you. Gabriella, Elisabetta and Sonia have put their hearts into this place and it is they who will lead the visitor to the olive grove that has been yielding olives for decades, olives that go to the family olive mill which produces some of the best and most highly prized olive oils in the region. Their Laudato and Solivo are well known in Italy and abroad. Here you'll also find a wood-fired oven, like those used in the past, to make baked goods to accompany white and red wines, the Verdicchio and Conero, chosen from among the best the land has to offer, along with a myriad of other quality products, typical delectable specialties to delight your palate. Should you want to explore the territory on a voyage of discovery, the possibilities are endless, from Recanati to nearby Mount Conero, from the hilltop of Cingoli to the higher summits of the Apennines and down again towards the sea and the coastal towns of Sirolo and Numana. Of one thing we are absolutely sure: anyone who drops by the Gabrielloni's will come away with a lasting memory.
