Although it can be very busy in august, this place is always a must during a visit in the Marche. Fantastic staff, great location and best quality food. Not cheap, but also not extremely expensive. Early this year a lot of mosquito's but somhow they managed to get rid of these bugs in august.

This is a small, unpretentious place serving delicious food, specializing in meat dishes. We booked a table here based on the solid reviews on Trip Advisor and the recommendation of our hotel concierge and we were not disappointed. After traveling down the coast and feasting on mostly fish and seafood, it was a treat to indulge ourselves in the well prepared meat selections.
We also enjoyed speaking to the owner/chef who had spent time cooking at one of New York City's finer Italian restaurants (so, yes - English is spoken here!)

Alla Lanterna

Reviewed By Kwangus - Kent

So - this is the second time here and somehow it's just gotten better. The family run hotel is simple but clean and has everything you'd wish for - what make it stand out is the restaurant. This is classical Italian fish based dining at it's best . From the moment you walk in the door and are greeted by Silvia ( the daughter) until you arrive in the restaurant , you are treated as a member of the family - Gerioni the chef ( and mother) came out to reception to discuss with me what I wanted to eat and what was in season, nothing was too much trouble! ,Once those decisions were made , Flavioni ( father ) the head waiter/sommelier delivered his wine of recommendation - trust me it was good! This is a restaurant that delivers exceptional food with a wine list that exceeds all expectations! Definitely going to make sure I enjoy this place every time I'm anywhere near!!!!!

California

Reviewed By NuccioP - Perugia, Italy

Ristorante California is the most unlikely of restaurants--a warm, accommodating place on the ground floor of what appears to be a derelict hotel. Ignore the rest of the building. Get an outside table if you can. Primi are incredible, as long as they involve pasta. Risotto was ok, but not on the same level. Try the octopus (polippo) and potato appetizer. Grilled and fried fish secondi are perfect. Share--the plates are big, and they expect a group to share. The marchigiani are famous for their hospitality, and this doesn't disappoint. Gentle prices; the house white is fine. Make sure you get the pistachio liqueur at the end.

La Liscia

Reviewed By pnawn - world

We eat here regularly. Although the restaurant is in a hotel with a rather uninteresting decor, the atmosphere is good as the staff are wonderfully welcoming, genuine, efficient and fun. The menu is mainly fish; there's homemade pasta with some more unusual sauces; the antipasti is a lunch in itself; all appetites are catered for willingly - you can have huge "full power" or normal or shared portions. There is always fresh fish, just ask what's in today. A bottle of very quaffable house wine is local and reasonably priced. When the bill comes you'll be really pleasantly surprised. Value for money compared to many other places in Fano, where you can pay twice as much for standard frozen fish dishes and poor service.
