A Quick Trip to Le Marche to sample the extraordinary dishes from Chef Enrico
Set high in the Sibillini mountains in the beautiful little hamlet of Isola San Biagio, Montemonaco in Le Marche, you will find Il Tiglio, risen after 3 years away at the Adriatic coast like a phoenix from the flames – or in this case, the earthquakes of 2016.

Once we’d enjoyed the delightful appetisers, it was time for the four fabulous Antipasti – we hadn’t even reached the

We were definitely feeling full by this stage, but Enrico didn’t stop wowing us with his inventive creations – next up, a light dessert…
After all we had enjoyed it was time for coffee and probably a little lie down!
However, Il Tiglio had one more surprise up their sleeve and served us up delicious little apple treats glazed in fruits of the forest beautifully presented on silver branches. – another taste sensation to finish our amazing meal!
You will find Il Tiglio at Località Isola San Biagio, Montemonaco (AP) – put the name in Google maps and it will take you there! There’s a car parking area for the restaurant and Agriturismo across the road next to the building.
