Casciotta d'Urbino or Casciotta di Urbino is a type of Caciotta, made in the Province of Pesaro and Urbino in Le Marche, Italy.

This cheese is generally made of between 70-80% sheep milk with 20-30% cows milk.

First made in ancient times, this cheese, it is said was a favourite of Michelangelo and Pope Clement XIV.

Local legend has it that the name came about from a mis-pronunciation of 'Caciotta' by a local civil servant, some say it is derived from the local dialect.
