Casa Primo is 4 kilometers away from the ancient city of Tolentino. In this beautiful rustic city you are fully equipped. Large supermarkets, real Italian ice cream shops, a bakery with delicious sandwiches for the morning and a butcher with tasty Italian meat. There are also many delis. For example a shop for real local truffles and products made with truffle. There is enough to discover in Tolentino: theaters, cafes, restaurants and a beautiful piazza for drinking coffee or having an aperativo. A hospital is also available in case of an emergency. In the other direction from Casa Primo is San Ginesio. This small town is approximately 11 kilometers from the country house. There is a lively market here every Sunday morning and there are all kinds of fun festivals throughout the year.
Our favorite restaurant in Tolentino is 'Osteria d’Este'. A delicious slow food restaurant owned by the d'Este family. Father was once a baker and is in the kitchen, daughter Martina is the hostess and sommelier. We can reserve for you if you wish. A tip? The pasta carbonara here is really the best you will ever taste!
‘Pizzeria Monkey’ is a must for the tastiest pizza in the area. At ‘Monkey’, the bottoms are very thin and crispy. There is also a large garden here which is especially handy if you are going to eat here with small children.
Another recommendation is ‘Da Li Contadi’. This pizzeria in Tolentino also has great thin pizzas.
Another favorite of ours is restaurant Le Logge in Urbisaglia.
Here you can choose various courses from a choice menu that varies regularly and is read at the table. The owners, the Tombolini family, also organize cooking classes. If you as guests of Casa Primo are interested in one or more cooking lessons (for example with a group), we can help with booking and provide a nice discount because we know the owners.

In Colmurano, not far from Casa Primo you can also eat delicious food at Agra Mater. They get all ingredients from their own garden.
Casa Mia, a nice restaurant in the center of Tolentino. Delicious food in a cozy environment within walking distance of the main square.
In the beautiful medieval village of Belforte del Chienti, which, due to its location on top of the hill, offers a great panoramic view of the area, is the delicious fish restaurant Ristorante Locanda Bonfranceschi. In the summer it is nice and cool in the wharf cellar, or you have a beautiful view from the terrace of the restaurant. The village itself is also well worth a walk and a visit
Podere sul Lago in Serrapetrona is a fantastic little winery to visit. This winery only makes organic red wines (without pesticides), including Vernacia. The Vernaccia Nera grape is grown in this area around the municipalities of Serrapetrona, San Severino Marche and Belforte del Chienti. Vernaccia is the first Marchigian wine to carry the DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) designation from 2004. To be able to state this on the label, you must be at least 5 years of DOC wine. The grapes must grow, be harvested and produced in that particular area and meet strict criteria.
In Serrapetrona every year in summer there are also the Sagra della Vernaccia, a festival in the village where all wineries come with their Vernaccia and restaurants offer the opportunity to enjoy a meal.
Our favorite winery in the area is Colmone della Marca. This small winery can be found near San Severino Marche. The brand new tasting room is located on top of a mountain and you can taste an arrangement of wine with matching snacks.The view is amazing and so are the wines! We recommend to book in advance.
The best and tastiest tastings are often possible in the area. Wineries in Tolentino or other towns offer sausage, biscuit, cheese and more tastings! For example with Alberto Qaqcuarini.

Another well-known orphanage in Tolentino is Il Pollenza, about 15 minutes' drive away. The estate itself alone is a reason to take a look.
One of our favorites is 'Tenute Murola' in Urbisaglia, 20 minutes drive from the house. You can buy and taste wine here, or make an appointment for an extensive tasting and tour of the cellars.
On the website of Ciao Tutti there are also some recommendations.
Gelateria Enjoy is the best. This Italian ice cream shop is a party. The owner has won several awards.
Twin Enjoy, Enjoy's sister, but in a different location just outside the center at the Oasi (the supermarket) in the shopping center.
In the main square of Tolentino is a cafe where they sell ice cream, pastries and coffee. (Tip: if you drink your coffee at the bar it is cheaper. This is the case in most places in Italy).
