We had the opportunity to dine at La Contrada with some friends who own a B&B near by. It certainly helps anytime to order with a local on your side. Our experience was very good. We ordered 1 kilo of beef to serve 2 couples and it was enough along with some pasta and grilled veggies.
It was fun having Paulo slice the slab of meat and then cooking it ourselves to our liking on the hot rock.

The place is not easy to find and there are some blind ridges on the way up but worth the trip.

spent some really good times here @ La Contrada,
some wonderful beaches are closeby, the landscape and view is simply spectacular.
the rooms are nice & comfortable, but the real deal are the hosts...Paolo & Clelia make you feel being part of the family, not only that Paolo knows how to cook a proper Tagliata from the legendary "Marchigniana", he has some great wines to offer as well...and the pasta dishes are a real treat as well...
plus: Paolo used to be a DJ and his music selections really made me feel @ home...
Big love from us,
Gemma, Moses & Rainer
we will mos´def return...
