Came with a group of friends and two small children. Food was fantastic: tasty home made pasta with fish ragout, sea bass, great desserts. The staff was extremely friendly, kids notwithstanding, and we all loved it!

I love this restaurant. It's position right on the beach makes it a perfect end to a glorious day at the sea. The view of the sea at night sparkling in the moonlight together with the lights at the port and on Monte Conero increases its charm. The staff are warm, friendly and really attentive and will suggest the best combination of dishes. The fish and seafood are all fresh and delicious and cooked in the traditional way with parsley, breadcrumbs and garlic or in simple sauces. The mixed fish antipasto is phenomenal. If there are several if you, order a couple of portions of different things to share. There is a lot to enjoy.

We've been there for the first time yesterday evening.
Everything was perfect; we followed the suggestion of the Maitre: hot fishes starter, octopus, cold fishes starter, and "moscioli" from Numana sea, wild and delicious Musseles from the sea near Numana.
After Grilled fishes and a Lobster. All the dishes have been made by fresh fish and with really high quality.
We added our favourite white wine, Gevurztraminer, and the dinner was fantastic.
The price? It was according to the quality.

That restaurant, for us, became the first in this area for traditional fish foods.

We went to Il Cucale on the recommendation of Omar & Silvia from the apartment we rented in Porto Recanati. Of the four seafood restaurants we ate at during our one-week stay here, this was definitely one of the best. We shared the Insalata di Mare which was fresh, light, tender and delightful. Next we shared the tagliatelle with squid, shrimp and clams which was also delicious. Being light eaters, we were not able to sample many of the other menu items we would have liked to try. Il Cucale is located right on the beach. It was cool when we were there, so only the inside area was available for dining. It is nicely decorated in white with blue accents. The service is friendly and attentive. We would definitely return should we visit this area again. We highly recommend Il Cucale if you are in the area. Reservation are a must as it is very popular with locals and visitors. Buon appetito!
