A Rainy winters night but a warm welcome at La Fontana

We were recently in Blackpool just for one night and were looking for somewhere to eat (two couples) I recalled having visited La Fontana maybe twenty years ago so we decided to see if it was still there. It was and was just how I remember it after all this time. The restaurant was quiet but we... read more

Came here on the recommendation of a taxi driver after having been let die at the last minute by another restaurant who had closed early (on a Saturday night). We had to wait half an hour for a table, but that was no hardship as we were made very welcome and could sit and have a drink while we waited.... More

Only staying in Blackpool for two nights, we wanted a lovely romantic night out with good food and this was perfect, it was a week day and weather was terrible, we were soaking wet, there was only 1 other table in there, we sat straight down and they took our soggy coats away for us. Waitress was very nice, seemed... More

We called on the off chance that they would have a table on New Years Eve. We were told it would be a 50 minute wait which we were very happy to wait and seemed very reasonable considering it was New Years Eve and we hadn't booked in advance. The restaurant has a very decent sized waiting area, away from... More

About 14 of us had our works do here and found the food to be really good--service not too quick or slow---just about right for the occasion, good atmosphere and nicely trimmed up--enjoyed by all but my one complaint was the price of the beer--2 pints £9-yes it was that Italian stuff peroni or something similar--and yes were in a...

This restaurant instantly had a place in my heart for its authenticity. The setting is sublime - you step in from the streets of Blackpool onto the cobbles of an "outdoor" restaurant in Italy complete with overhead grape vines, stars, overlooking balconies and fairy lights. The food is gorgeous - pasta was fresh and the menu was truly Italian. A... More
