Award-winning pizza in Ascoli’s Historic Centre
Tucked down a little alleyway in Ascoli’s centro storico, La Nicchia is just steps away from Piazza del Popolo and walking distance from your boutique stay on tour with us. It’s a gambero-rosso award-winning pizzeria restaurant that offers not only pizza, but pasta and a variety of second dishes on its seasonal menu. It’s the perfect place to dine if your group is split on having a pizza night or just enjoying a simple plate of handmade pasta with fresh porcini and truffles.

Here pizza is sold by the slice, making it easy for you to try a variety of toppings on their thin crust pizza alla Romana style.
