Truffles Therapy

A Show Cooking Experience in Marche Italy

Gola del Furlo Reserve

Alberto Melagrana and his wife Roberta continue a long tradition of hospitality at the Osteria "Antico Furlo", an ancient hostelry and staging post dating back to 1825 situated along an old Roman highway nestled into "Gola del Furlo Reserve", just before the Via Flaminia reaches a tunnel built by the Romans to reach the Adriatic coast.

A special event for fine dining enthusiasts and lovers of truffle dishes

Nowadays the "Antico Furlo" has become a destination for gourmets who want to experience the gastronomic secrets of the Marche region.
