Business Meal with 6 German colleagues

When our host suggested an Italian restaurant, I was a bit sceptical as the area of Germany I work his has loads of quality Italian food and reasonable prices. Howver, we were all very impressed by our meal at Fontana and would not hesitate to recommend it.

Very good food. Very good experience. V good fun; got my wrist slapped - quite rightly - by the wine waiter who was horrified by my attempt to top up our own glasses. Excellent value for money with more than a touch of class. Will be back next time we head to Blackpool

After reading reviews I was really looking forward to eating here. We were disappointed. The service was slow and the food was just ok.

Whilst on business in Blackpool on my own and a bit bored of The De Vere Hotel food, I Googled where to eat and La Fontana had good reviews. They found me a table for 1 and even though they had 2 large birthday parties in they didn't forget their single diner. I chose the grilled prawns to start in... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant while visiting Blackpool one evening and very glad we did. Food was amazing as was the service and surroundings. We were a family of 3 and all had 2 courses which came to only £33 with drinks. Can't wait to return to Blackpool to dine here again!

Went here tonight for the first time to celebrate our daughters birthday. Was advised that there would be a bit of a wait for the food as everyone seemed to be turning up at the same time. Was told we would be seated and our orders taken but there might be a slight wait, this never actually happened. Our starter... More

My family and I dined at this restaurant for the two nights that we stayed in Blackpool, the food was great, lovely staff and reasonable priced. The only suggestion that I would make is that both times there was a bit of a wait for our order to be taken so some bread brought with the drinks told have been... More
