Rimini in late May, early June can be frustrating to find restaurants, they seem to be either closed or opening later, I ended up in this place because others were closed, but I’m glad. Started with two pasta dishes, the gnocchi with prawns and a...vegetarian ravioli, both were amazing. For main we charged the mixed fried/lightly battered fish. Absolutely delish, only I ordered too much and couldn’t finish. Really enjoyed the meal.More

I think that "da Lele" represent the best standard in restaurant, hospitality's student must make a period in this restaurant to understand what does mean hospitality and good food. The service is first class, pure "Romagna style", easy but professional very attentive to the customer...needs able to handle the unexpected and always friendly so do do not feel far from home. The food is superb, typical regional food, that is quite excellent, I would suggest "lasagna di mare" I really enjoyed it. The price is very reasonable and not expensive at all. I will be back for sure.More

Bit disappointed with the food here, after reading reviews. The star, by far, were the mussels - absolutely fresh and plump. Everything else was average. Felt a bit overpriced ultimately.

The cook is excellent, especially the mussles !! Unfortunately the service was really slow. I received my third meal before one of my friend receives his first one... The manager was helpful but still... Maybe we were just not lucky

We visited the restaurant after three years and found it the same. Attentive waiters, reasonable prices and tasty food. Complimentary focaccia. We ate risotto, fritto misto, dolci. Great restaurant. It's better to book a table for dinner.

We visited twice as we were not able to try all the different varieties :) We had Spaghetti Vongole, Conchiglia, Pomodoro & Pizze. Make sure to try the desserts. They are the best!

This restaurant is located bit far from the main touristic street - Regina-Elena, so it's great opportunity to have a very tasty dinner with authentic Italian atmosphere!) We visited this place many times during our vacation, they cook great pizza, lasagna, ravioli with cream sauce...and salmon. And also I enjoyed their cream mascarpone with strawberry)More

We have been here for the last 3 years and it is always the highlight of our time in Rimini. The food is amazing, seafood can’t be beaten for taste and freshness. Fruita de mista is superb and we can’t resist having this every time...we visit. The pasta dishes make me miss homemade pasta for months after each visit. The owner is a great host and we always look forward to seeing him. All of the staff are helpful and friendly. The menus are in Italian and English. Please go and experience the joy of Italian food and hospitality!More

Well, the food is really nice, but as a tourist, you struggle a bit with the menu, if you don't speak italian, they have the menu (in italian), and they also provide a sort of small photto album with food, but there are only phottos...:) they don't tell you what' the name of the dishes, so you can identify them and find the composition... You are fitted in where they want, not where you would prefere, regardless of your reservation. The owner acts like a boss, which is quite annoying he is always there supervising the waiters and clients also..., and his behaviour is followed by other staff members too. Apart from this, food is very good, portions are big, prices are decent, the wine is great. FOOD - big like, ATMOSPHERE and AROGANCE - great disappointment!More

My family and I had a dinner in this restaurant. The meal was good, in fact the fish cuisine was the best. The staff was OK, but they don't have an English menu.

I came there thanks to my friend's recommendation and I never regret it. The place is a real restraunt, nice and neat. The food is great, the dish I ordered was super tasty and the size corresponded the price. I also noticed that Da Lele...is quite popular, at daytime as well as in the evenings it's full.More

Went there as it was well recommended So let me tell you about Pedro He is the one that "speaks English" He is the one who takes an order without writing it down Guess what - he got it wrong He forgot the pasta starter...and then made up some story about it being cooked to order, while I sat 10 minutes looking at my cold starter Then we , mentioned it, then 15 minutes later it came , admit Pedro, you forgot Then our main course came, wrong, he came over and said it was wrong, that was the last we saw of Pedro Have some advice 1 buy a pencil 2 when you get it wrong, apologise and sort it We all make mistakes, I work with lots of clients and get it wrong / or misunderstand It's not what happens, we are all human , it's what you do about it, and they did nothing But this review won't make any difference, the place is popular because the food is good, but honestly, way too arrogantMore

A great local fish restaurant, with good options for non-fish-eating clients. We went there in a group, and had great anti-pasti. The mussels were fantastic. Busy place so it's a good idea to book.
