This restaurant is a gem. You get the best steaks, pizzas - yes everything in this restaurant is perfect. The service is super nice. And they have only one person who speaks English. But they are so kind.

Lovely decor successfully marrying traditional and modern, delicious fresh food, delightful and prompt service. Couldn't fault it in any way. There's nothing pretentious about it – just the best of authentic Italian cuisine, presented attractively without any fuss. They even did a special pasta dish requested by our friends that wasn't on the menu. The wine was good too, and the waitress was keen to know what we thought of it alongside the dishes we'd chosen – lovely to see that sort of interest in customers' experience. We've been twice, in successive years, during short stays with friends in Montecchio. We would have loved to have eaten here more times, but the restaurant happened to be closed (perhaps to do with the olive harvest) for the first part of our most recent stay. This forced us to try a couple of other establishments nearby which did not match up at all to the standard of Il Fontanile (and yet were bizarrely more full). I just hope Il Fontanile keeps going and that we can go there again next year.

I had the best entree ever here! I don't say meal because I only had one thing. I had the Stinco. It doesn't sound appetizing, but it is amazing. It is a pork shin that has been slow cooked all day. This one was stuffed with rosemary. It was huge as well and I wanted to finish it all but couldn't. The Stinco is very rich to.

Il Fontanile offers a great cuisine quality for a reasonable price. I have had there one Of the best pasta with truffles ever. The menu has wide range of dishes typical for the regional cuisine. All in modern and elegant interior with very attentive staff. Definitely recommended.

We visited this nice place in the Umbrian countryside several times (10+) during our holiday; both with kids and without. We also tried the take-out service.

Interesting menu with sophisticated as well as simple food, well presented and very good. Local cuisine and locally manufactured meats. Normal portions, normal prices. Great wine.

Attentive and professional staff. Nice and clean.

We will definitely come back soon!
