The sea view enjoyed through the restaurant’s wide windows is the same sea where Pesaro and Fano fishing boats catch the fresh fish served at the ’59 in delectable dishes lovingly prepared by its chefs.

The Marche's flourishing agriculture provides the basis for the region's simple, genuine food and wine culture, just waiting to be rediscovered and reinvented.

The extensive wine list highlights the best of the ancient traditions of Marche enology, offering truly excellent wines to win over the most refined palates.

In keeping with the Excelsior philosophy, the '59 restaurant's chefs and sommeliers welcome guests with a typically Marche discreet charm. The menu, keen with the sea's tang, changes with the seasons.

CHEF ANGELO FRANZÒ

TRADITION AND CULINARY ART

Born in Palermo in 1974, he grew up in the kitchen of the famous Syracusan restaurateur of his father where he started his professional career as a chef. Angelo then began to look towards new horizons with the spirit of searching for the best between the typical Sicilian products and recipes.

He worked for several years in a very important catering company wandering around palaces and noble villas. He leaves catering in 2008 and turns his Sicily, expanding his gastronomic experience and working at restaurants to show his revisited Mediterranean cuisine. In 2010 he started a new business collaborating with several hotel companies, transferring with professionalism what had long been able to appreciate the Sicilian cuisine and more. He is able to get different consents and food and wine reviews of various specialized publications that define him one of the most Sicilian chefs.

Various participations in national food and wine events allow him to enhance the products of the Sicilian territory.

Among his latest experiences we must mention the participation, with the Sicilian cuisine revisited, at the event "AbbiateGusto 2013" in the famous Convento dell'Annunciata which in the past was the stage of the most important cooks of national catering including Gualtiero Marchesi,Carlo Cracco.

Another passion cultivated by Angelo has always been the search in the regional territory of ancient grains and traditions, up to the discovery of the real recipe of the Russello bread, wheat that was produced before the Second World War in the territory where it lives today. From this discovery and continuous processing, in 2014 he managed to identify with the help of the famous miller Filippo Drago how to bring to the table a new composition of bread with mother yeast. In 2015 Angelo proposes himself among the protagonists in Avola, in the province of Syracuse, in the "Sorriso siculo" event, presenting his arancine of sea and land and receiving several certificates of esteem from Angelo Manna, known producer of Sicilian rice.
