Ascoli Piceno Food & Wine

Food (Cibo)


Ascoli's cuisine relies heavily upon local produce, including wild fungi (especially truffles), onions, capers, garlic, fennel, and anise. Olives have grown in this province since Roman times. Today, Ascolians enjoy olive all'ascolana, which are stuffed with minced meat and fried. Fried sweet cream ravioli and savory anise-flavored cakes topped with powdered sugar are holiday favorites.



Wine (Vino)


The region's wines include Rosso Piceno and Falerio dei Colli Ascolani. The local liqueur of choice is Anisetta Meletti.
