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.... More

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... More

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... More

Very friendly waitress and great seafood. Mussels were great. Shrimp cocktail was a nice refreshing starter. Good location and cozy in the grotto.

Had a pleasant dinner in a Christmas season atmosphere. The food was all very good and well served. The small restaurant was cozy which made the evening comfortable and enjoyable. We all really liked the ravioli, but also the passatelli. We were a big group and most definitely will return. Cibo buono e location molto piacevole! Quando si va a... More

Got a table in the grotta (basement), which seems to be the best area in the restaurant. Very pleasant and helpful service. I had indicated seafood allergy and she came back just to ask about the extent of allergy sensitivity. Food was excellent. Wine was nice.All in all a great experience. This is not a fast food place so it... More

It is not as easy as one might think to eat excellent fish in Fano. But after some rather unsuccessful visits to different restaurants I found this place, hidden in a narrow lane off busy Corso Mateotti. I had a wonderful seafood salat as starter and a grilled sea bass with a salat as main course. The sea bass was... More

We went for a lunch date. They wouldn't serve us the special because there were only two of us (and apparently there needed to be more). The food was very good, but a bit overpriced for the area.

The food is excellent. Ask for a table in the grotta, nice and cool. Try some of the specific meals from Fano, these are very good
