Excellent food and superb wine.

Pros: Excellent food. Superb wine. Very good service. A great building (where olive oil was once produced) with a large courtyard garden containing fruit trees. Good lighting and ambiance. Cons: Limited options for vegetarians. Music could be improved. Verdict: Recommended.

After all the enthusiastic comments and a recommendation the other day from a fellow traveller I was less than impressed. The tonarelli pasta was borderline overcooked and it was swimming in oil. When we mentioned this we got a dismissive 'oil is good'. The setting is nice but we didn't bother to try further on the basis that if they... More

I had lunch in this restaurant and must say the food was delightful and the owner was charming and hospitable. I arrived a bit late and the family was obviously about to sit down to eat their own meal. However they made me welcome and at no point did I feel awkward. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone... More

We were visitng Fondi on a day trip from Rome. We had read some reviews on TA but had actually intended going to a different restaurant. However, we were struck by hunger and found ourselves on the same street at Il Frantoio (and far away from the other one). Having whet our appetite just reading the menu, we went in.... More

This restaurant located in the old town of Fondi and within walking distance of the castle is well worth a visit. Not only is the food and wine superb but the building is amazing. It is a converted mill and the character has been very well retained. A very interesting menu with surprisingly large portions. The staff were fantastically helpful.... More

Food was outstanding and of high quality,along with the atmosphere and service. Will definately go there again when visiting Fondi (between Roma and Napoli). Thanks you I'll... More

Went to this restaurant twice recently when staying in Fondi as the only English people is the town, but the owner was a true restauranteur, He was very helpful and presented the best possible food and wine. The restaurant itself is a work of art and a joy to have a meal in. The menu is very varied and meals... More
