Urbino (Italian: [urˈbiːno]; listen (help·info)) is a walled city in the Marche region of Italy, south-west of Pesaro, a World Heritage Site notable for a remarkable historical legacy of independent Renaissance culture, especially under the patronage of Federico da Montefeltro, duke of Urbino from 1444 to 1482. The town, nestled on a high sloping hillside, retains much of its picturesque medieval aspect. It hosts the University of Urbino, founded in 1506, and is the seat of the Archbishop of Urbino. Its best-known architectural piece is the Palazzo Ducale, rebuilt by Luciano Laurana.

This is a staple restaurant for me when I'm looking for a memorable and intimate time and, without fail, coming here has impressed friends and family alike. The location is perfect for romantic dinners, but I also like coming here for a relaxing lunch. In fact last time went here for lunch on Saturday. Truffle Fondue was WOW. I was blown away by how good this fondue was. There was so much flavor packed into one bowl. Then the Green Gnocchetti with White Truffle and the Filet with White Truffle were great! The service was also exceptional.

We dined at Trattoria del Leone on our only night in beautiful Urbino on recommendation of other guests staying at our B&B. I had the local specialty baked rabbit and J had pork. Both were delicious. This was topped with really good service and the price was very reasonable. If you are in Urbino it is worth a visit.

The most fantastic restaurant serving traditional Italian food. The best meal we had in this area.
A very traditional restaurant, well located by the Palazzo Ducale: as one of the earlier reviewers noted, it looks like a cafe, but is in fact a quite large restaurant with a wide ranging menu and friendly staff. Excellent use of truffles and local cheese, and the salads are enormous and very good value.

This is a very good restaurant serving a classic range of typical Marche dishes that are carefully and authentically prepared. Interesting wine list and a good suggestion from our waitperson. However it was extremely hot away from the small windows and there are several tables on the kitchen side that are outside the main restaurant area, in the service corridor and to be avoided, we would suggest visiting ahead of time and specifying where to sit.

Attached to the hotel Maiami but run separately , the restaurant is well worth visiting. The food is delicious using local ingredients and cooked very well. Our waiter, Gill Hassan, was very knowledgable and even recommended dishes that weren't on the menu to give us a taste of the region. Reasonably priced- would certainly eat there again.

This hole-in-the-wall type place is an institution in Urbino. Here they made fresh daily, pizza bianca (similar to focaccia without sauce or toppings) and pizza rossa (piazza bianca with tomato base). If you are coming to Urbino and want to sample some of Urbino’s best pizza at a true pizza al taglio (pizza by the slice sold at small take-away shop), then head to Il Buco and order up a slice of Pizza Rossa!

This place is a great take-away specialising in Genoese fast foods, pizza etc. It is extremely well-priced and the service is friendly and helpful. There are even tables and seats outside and if you're lucky the sun will be shinning.

Excellent little restaurant/wine bar in the heart of Urbino. Beautifully presented local dishes & wines at very very reasonable prices! Loved the local cheeses & meats platter with typical local bread recipe & the pasta dishes were simply superb!

Have been here a few times with friends and by myself also. I love it because it is not only an interesting place (with the wild west theme) but the menu is great and massive...there are probably 100 piadinas in addition to other things not normally found. Burgers, cooked breakfasts etc the food is good and reasonably priced and of course they serve a wide range of drinks also....all in all one i always look forward to coming too !!

Having spent much time in Urbino, with regard to dining I conclude that you can either have ambiance or exquisite food. While one does not sacrifice ambiance at La Taverna, one most definitely enjoys exquisite dishes that are specific to the region and very fresh. I have dined here both for lunch and dinner, with a party of 3 and with a party of 15. The quality is the same in both cases. The chitarrine al radicchio e formaggio di fossa were so tasty, as were many of the other pastas and meat dishes. I would recommend this restaurant hands down as one of the best in Urbino. The only potential downside is that there is only indoor Seating and oftentimes in this part of the country people are looking for outdoor dining with a view of the rolling hills of the Marche. Do not pass it up - the prices are great and the food is just really authentic!!!
