They have been cooking for 70 years, actually 71 to be precise, because it was in 1939 that Coomarpesca, a fishermen's cooperative in Fano, was born from a Mutual Aid Society.

Where a tasting menu costs € 14 and where there was even Pope John Paul II.

The promoters of Adriatic fish

It all started on the fishing boats and then in the port, where simple and traditional dishes were prepared just a few hours after fishing, cooked according to typical recipes and with ingredients from the Adriatic. But Fano was close to him and so the fishermen practically became real pioneers of street food. Equipped with a large car market equipped with cold storage and a transportable hearth, the Fano fishermen's cooperative set out on the streets of the Marche hinterland in the squares of the province of Pesaro and Urbino, bringing samples of grilled fish, free, almost everywhere. The PesceAzzurro di Fano began to be appreciated throughout the province and from there the idea of ​​a restaurant that fully reflected the festive atmosphere found in the historic centers of the province and in the streets of the port of Fano, with tables in which to recreate the atmosphere of a festival. Affordable self-service – it's a success.
