Booked a table here after being let down by La Cantina el Buffo, so glad we did! Lovely secluded courtyard with only 8 outdoor tables. Run by a husband and wife team, husband is the chef and wife is front of house. Glass of complimentary prosecco on arrival, which was a nice touch. It has a very different menu, with... More

We passed this restaurant one afternoon and decided to reserve a table for the night. The best decision we've made! The service was perfect and very personal. The two waitresses both clearly work very hard and seemed lovely. One of them gave us a few details of some of the appetisers and we decided to get all three - which... More

Went yesterday evening as we had pre booked taking the advice of other trip advisor reviews. We were really glad we did as they could have filled the restaurant three times over and there were a lot of disappointed faces. On a side street and only about 12 tables in the front section, all were spotlessly clean with proper starched... More

Been to Italy many times and I love eating at this place and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys an excellent standard of food. It never disappoints me, always creative, beautifully cooked and a great atmosphere. The owners are fantastic but the food is even better (Nothing against them!) I went early June this year, for starters I... More

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.
