We were recommended this restaurant from a hotel nearby and we are so glad we made the visit. The food was excellent and the setting was beautiful.

The food was innovative and challenged your concept of what does go together. I left there thinking I had been a welcome guest into a family and a home. Welcomed with a glass and a smile. The greeter was also the owner and wife of the chef. A lovely atmosphere as all the dishes where explained and recommendations made. It... More

It's not often that I enjoy a meal so much that the first thing I do afterwards is write a review about it (in fact this is the first time), but I was so inspired by our meal at Al Vecchio Fontec that that's what I've done. Yes, the service is a little slow - but the food was worth... More

We had a warm welcome by the owner who explained that there would be a wait for food as they had one chef and were busy. That was fine with us. Starter dishes were explained and we went with recommendations which were very good. All good until the main courses. Two out of four chosen were not available including the... More

This place deserves the great review. Setting and decor fab and food to match. Great attention to detail and food explained precisely by chef/owners wife. I had langoustines with pineapple, and my husband had the steak tartare, both v good, ended sides of veg and potatoes, but too full for desserts. Don't leave Limone without trying here, do book ahead.

Our hotel receptionist recommended this restaurant when we mentioned that we visiting Limone, we trusted her judgement and she was spot on. The restaurant looks very similar to many other restaurants in the town and from the menu or decor you could easily pass it by and walk on to the next. The food was simple and typical Italian but...

My husband and I were in Limone Sul Garda for our wedding anniversary and after reading the reviews on trip advisor for this restaurant we decided to book a table. We were not disapointed. The venue, the ambience the staff and the food were all fantastic. The only thing I would say is book your table early if you want... More

My wife and I were staying in Limone sul Garda for a week's holiday and were lucky enough to read the other reviews on this restaurant and, on that basis, booked a table for dinner. The other reviews pretty much cover it; a wonderful dinner with fantastic, imaginative food, glorious friendly service and in a beautiful location. If nothing else... More

My husband and I were lucky enough to stumble upon this fantastic restaurant while looking for somewhere to have lunch that didn't have plastic chairs and laminated menus! This is very popular with the locals, and due to this booking for evening meals is essential. The setting is courtyard style with simple but elegant furniture. The service was good, the... More
