We came to Senigallia, a resort beach town in Marche. Our final dinner was at Michelin 2-star restaurant, Madonnina del Pescatore by Chef Moreno Cedroni. It's a beautiful restaurant right by the ocean. Chef Cedroni is a master of seafood.

We had his tasting course. From the very beginning of house-made bread and freshly-pressed olive oil from Jesi, I was so excited.
