Urbino Food & Wine
Urbino is filled with gastronomy (little food stores) where you can purchase fresh cheeses, flavorful prosciutto, sweet breads, piadine (an Italian flat bread), and fresh pasta, like passatelli (delicious in truffle sauce).
Some of the traditional foods of the province owe much to history too. Many are no longer everyday fare, but can still be sampled on special occasions, such as granetti (corn bread), sheep's milk cheese such as caciotta, prized white truffles, fratterosa (baked guinea fowl), and all manner of meat sausages. Try formaggio di Fossa, a specialty cheese aged in cellars cut into the limestone mountains near Apecchio.
Try these local wines: Bianchello del Metauro and Sangiovese dei Colli Pesaresi, or the rarer Tristo di Montesecco and Vernaccia del Cesano.
