Got a table in the grotta (basement), which seems to be the best area in the restaurant. Very pleasant and helpful service.

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

We had a great moment in this restaurant despite the waiting. Pasta melted in our mouth, Grigliata was our best in the city But it took us 2:30 to finish our lunch (we have preferred not to order any desert to avoid 1 more hour)

I had the pleasure to visit today La Vecchia Fano together with my wife and brother in law. Everything was so delicious (Piadina, prosciutto crudo, salame, pasta pomodoro, tagliata and a great crema catalana). Indeed it is a place to visit again.
