We were seated downstairs in the 'grotto' - very warm, welcoming and cozy atmosphere. Our waitress was very friendly and the food was excellent. House wine was good and relatively cheap too. Loos were clean and come with extra bells and whistles.

Definitely recommend this restaurant!

We were two people who wanted a late lunch in a hurry so telephoned 20 minutes before their advertised closing time - yes they offered us a table and five minutes later we sat down in this pleasant small traditional restaurant. Menus and drinks and bread were brought at once, the service was polite. There was a decent selection of home-style dishes, fairly priced. We had pappardelle with crab and artichokes, and another with wild boar meat sauce, both of which were well made. With wine and coffee the bill was around €30 for two. The bathrooms were very clean with not just soap and water but also alcohol hand disinfectant - a sign of attention to hygiene that you don't often see.

1. They were out of meat... Which they told us after we had decided for beef.
2. We got our dinner 1 hour and 45 minutes after we ordered it. We ordered pasta and there were few other people in the restaurant, so I have no idea why.
3. They did not give us our food at the same time. The others had finished their dinner when I got mine..
4. They never apologized or even mentioned any of the above

Caro Ospite il mio ristorante e' composto da tre sale e quindi c'erano altri Clienti prima di voi;Avete scelto tutti piatti diversi con diverse cotture ad esempio per cuocere l'agnello alla brace sono necessari 25 minuti ma se la griglia e' piena bisogna aspettare di piu' ,l'importante e' la qualita' di cio' che si mangia ,abbiamo cercato di farvi mangiare piu' o meno insieme .prima di scrivere cattiverie gratuite sarebbe meglio riflettere perche' non accetto recensioni da persone che non conoscono la materia.Andate pure a mangiare dove vi riscaldano il cibo ,nel mio ristorante la cucina e' espressa e ogni piatto ha i suoi tempi di cottura.

Dined here recently with my husband, his sister and our 3 year old son. We sat outside since it was a warm evening and were surprised how easy it was to get a table on a Saturday night despite not making a reservation. We were giving English menus which helped a lot as the menu is quite extensive and I think we'd have struggled. Staff were all very helpful and friendly, little English spoken but better than our Italian and enough to get by. Every dish we ordered was superb, extremely tasty and very authentic. The only problem we had was we ordered too much and simply couldn't eat it all, however, the waitresses were happy to pack us a doggy bag and we enjoyed a steak the breakfast the following day! I would particularly recommend the menu of the day we includes 2 dishes plus water, wine and coffee for only €18 per person. A great experience all round and would definitely recommend.

Fano on the Adriatic side of Italy should be a destination point and the Restaurant La Vecchia Fano in the heart of the old walled city a real treat to visit and outstanding food prepared like Italians and featuring what come out of the sea. Dinning on the first level is quaint but downstairs is a grotto large enough for a party and beneath that a wine cellar our host opened up for us. It was a week day we visited and we had the place to ourselves but I sensed the staff was eager to serve as many as the little place could accommodate. History, good food and friendly, write the name down. You should go. The Trip Advisor decal was rightfully on the entrance door.
