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... More

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.... More

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,... More

This little restaurant is on the beach. You can see all the cost and the nice Monte Conero. For aperitives there is a beautiful terrace. Lovely people. Good proportion between quality and price.

Simple, genuine, tasty but healthy. Marche style, little fanfare, great substance. Very nice and friendly atmosphere. I suggest having a drink on the terrace upstairs, overlooking Numana, its bay with the Mount Conero behind, then dinner downstairs. If you plan to book a table outside, remember to bring a light sweater or a scarf, just in case the evening breeze... More

Been there for ages now and ended up being disappointed. Surely one of the best restaurant in "Riviera", quality put above quantity and personally i find it quiet unusual nowadays! Wide selection of wines. Overall....top spot, just a step away from the see.

A great restaurant that serves fresh fish cooked in a simple yet interesting way. Davide, the owner, will for sure make you feel very welcome and part of the family. Great home-made pizza bianca and bread will accompany your meal...just don't eat too much of it as you might not have enough room for the wonderful fish pastas and mains.... More
