great little traditional Italian (stick to the classics!)

Been here a few times and never disappointed, most pasta dishes are under a tenner and starters are a fiver but the food is well cooked and good portions, Staff are friendly despite being busy and knowledgable of the menu and wine list,

We visited Piazza Fontana whilst staying in Cirencester because there only seemed to be two Italian restaurants to choose from and this one was closer to where we were staying. The food was nice enough (particularly the bruschetta which was very nice) but it was quite expensive for what it was and some of the waiting staff weren't very attentive... More

Visited Fontana this weekend as part of birthday celebrations for my father, following many positive reviews on tripadvisor. We were greeted by very friendly, accommodating staff (our group ranged from 1year to 70years old) and shown to our table. There was a nice express lunch menu which allowed for flexibility to suit children's portions etc which was a pleasant surprise.... More

A lovely friendly Italian resturant that catered for our family party of ten which included children and the less abled. We received a warm welcome and excellent service though out our meal. If you eat here you will experience genuine Italian cuisine .

Wow, what a warm welcome! We'd had a terrible experience in the pizza express next door and feeling a bit fed up so this was just what we needed. Our host was a lovely man and made everything better. We had a delicious italian antipasto to share and pizza marinara and steak for mains. It was all cooked to perfection... More

We stayed in Cirencester and wanted to eat Italian, found this little place in the afternoon and decided to eat early. The staff were very polite and friendly, service really good. The food was excellent, hot, tasty and very enjoyable. The place soon filled up with couples and families, with a really nice atmosphere. We are coming to Cirencester again... More

Lovely authentic Italian food. Lots of choice and definitely worth a visit. Great selection of pasta, pizza and carne/fish dishes.

Welcoming setting and nicely busy even on a Tuesday evening. They were more than happy for us to bring our pram in and the food was excellent. Best meatballs I have eaten and the house red was very nice. The only thing preventing 5 stars was that the coffee wasn't very good.

Full disclosure: I'm actually Italian, and know my onions when it comes to italian food. This restaurant really is good and if you're looking for proper homecooked italian food, done with decent fresh ingredients and care, look no further than this place. Really nice and friendly service too!
