The Food and Flavours of Cossignano

The restaurant and cafe Castello de Marte, or “Castle Of Mars”, is located in the main square of the beautifully preserved, historic medieval walled town of Cossignano, ten minutes from the Adriatic coast.

Cossignano’s hilltop position  dominates the countryside providing breathtaking views over the “Piceno” as this picturesque area of central Italy is known.

Operating as a tavern since the early 1950s, Castello de Marte was carefully restored in 2003. The original building dates from the 15C and the sensitive restoration retains the historic architectural character, while charming decorative touches provide personality and add to the warm and relaxed atmosphere.

Lunch in the evocative dinning room, take an aperitivi in the bar or dine on the tiled, colonnaded terrace overlooking the Renaissance square, whatever you chose you are guaranteed a warm welcome and an experience to remember.
