Restaurant details
Reviewed 29 September 2018

We spent two and half days in Urbino, and we paid our highest possible compliment to the joint by eating all our meals, except breakfasts and gelato, there. Yes, lunch and dinner, every day.

The key is their special Piada, properly called La Crescia Sfogliata, the unleavened flatbread wrapping. It is made from scratch in-house, by the Mamma of the owner no less, every day, out of eggs, milk, oil and flour, which managed to be, miraculously both, flaky and sturdy---sturdy enough to contain all the goodies you can mix and match for yourself.

The variety of the fillings is of course why we could eat four meals there without any repetition. For protein I always start with Porchetta, and add their cheese and cream sauce, and then each time choose a different combination from their plain or breaded and baked vegetables. Breaded eggplants and breaded tomatoes are especially recommended, so are the fresh corns for textures and pop.

All these were cooked to order and served hot in a nice and neat wrap, ready within five minutes. And the prices, never exceeding six euro per person even with a shared drink, even with all our customization, is simply unbeatable!

And then there are the husband and wife owners. The hostess is outgoing and gregarious and the husband is more reserved, but they are both warm and friendly. By our second visit they are already treating us as old customers from the neighborhood.

This is by far the most consistent and best cheap-eat in our months of travels throughout Italy. Only a Salumeria in Syracuse came close.

Try it, and try it again, you won't be disappointed!

Based on many positive reviews we expected this to be a great place for a quick lunch. Instead we got poor quality sandwiches.

2 crescie, 1 good way to taste something local. The stuffing was not particularly special but overall I do suggest it!

We came here on the strength of Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. Small wonderful little piadineria making these lovely Italian stuffed and grilled flatbreads. Don't bother with the menu, just ask for - or point - at the fillings you want. ~€5 each. The range of breads was unrivalled (we tried lots of piadinerias!) Staff are lovely. Great lunchtime treat. (FYI No toilets!)

The food here is great. One of the few places you can get a great salad thrown together with whatever you want in it. The lady behind the counter could not possibly be nicer and the price is very good value
