Six of us came here for dinner last week having dined in Limone's top-rated Trip Advisor restaurant the night before, and we all agreed that the food here was also absolutely delicious. The service was very good too and their recommendations eg to have the superb melanzane alla parmigiana as a starter, were well received. Another fantastic meal in Limone.

Stopped in for lunch during boat trip from Malcesine. Not far from busy front, but tucked away in a side street, in a lovely little courtyard under umbrella awnings, so quiet and peaceful and romantic. And waiter enthusiastic, friendly and welcoming. Service fairly slow, but food well worth the wait. Had marinated salmon trout with fruit salad, and wife had... More

We tried to get in to this small restaurant but they were fully booked. Thankfully the following night we were in luck. Situated in what is essentially a courtyard off a back street away from the busy main area it is a very relaxing place to eat. Many languages seem to be spoken here and the menu was explained in...

Great service, great menu and great quality food. Diners on the table next to us changed their mind about their main course in three occasions, however the restaurant still treated them with a smile. The restaurant is small and gets booked up - make sure you book in advance.

We had a great dinner at Al Vecchio Fontec. Starters were great especially the fresh cheese folio pastry parcel with honey and strawberry. Best dish of the night. Pasta and fish mains were very good. They even cooked a special pasta dish off the menu for my very fussy daughter. You need to book. The restaurant is tiny and fully... More

I wish I had had the time to write this review sooner so that the details of the visit were still fresh in my memory. As it is, my feeling almost two months later is one of having found somewhere very special - an osteria that has got the formula of food/wine/service/ambience spot on. We ate lunch. Service was personal... More

We went to this place after reading comments on trip advisor.... And we were not disappointed! We've ordered pasta frutti di mare and it was just the best ! We followed with a generous tray of cheese and a coffee. All very good ! Highly recommended!

A romantic little restaurant just off the main shopping street. In colder months you can dine insight right next to an open fireplace. In summer the lovely patio with large umbrellas will protect from the heat. Worth every penny. Food is set just perfect, fresh ingredients, and fanatstic service. Can't wait to come back in summer!

We were lucky enough to stumble upon Al Vecchio Fontec during an evening walk around Limone. The restaurant is slightly hidden off away from the main centre but that's what makes it so special. We were recommend the two different cheese starters, one with balsamic vinegar and strawberries and the other a mozzarella dish with a 'pasta' basket on top.... More

Tucked away in the narrow back streets of Limone, this restaurant was a highlight of our holiday. Dishes were explained with enthusiasm...we all changed our minds from our original choices & were delighted with our food. My husband had an unusual starter- the cheese board with a selection of marmalades (absolutely delicious) & the rest of us had a mountain... More
