We came across this restaurant by accident as the one we planned to visit was busy. We were not disappointed! The ambience was lovely, it was just like you were sat in a little restaurant in Florence in Italy. The service was great! We all shared a tomato garlic bread and whilst it was quite small and crisp, it was... More

The restaurant had a lovely warm atmosphere. The decor was beautiful with a very homely feel to it. The only problem being that my partner's rice on his dish was really hard but once we had made the staff aware of this, they quickly changed his dish and he really enjoyed his meal. We would recommend this restaurant.

We have just visited la Fontana for the third time this year and love the food and the friendly atmosphere. When you go back, the staff immediately recognise you and make you feel so welcome. On arrival, you are invited to sit in the bar area and then taken to your table when one becomes free and you don't need... More

Lovely food, great service and waiters and waitress brilliant with our grandchildren. Very clean. Only down side is you can't book unless you are in a large party. But it is well worth persevering to get in

La Fontana is a traditional rather than stylish Italian and the menu is not that imaginative but the food is good quality and tasty. The service is really friendly and the Italian waiters were great with the children in our party. We had a very pleasant lunch and I'd definitely go back if in the area.

Visited here on Saturday 15th August as a party of five (3 adults and 2 kids). We tried to book, but were told just to come in between 7.15 and 7.30 and wait for a table. It was very busy, but give them their due, we were given a table within 15 minutes. The food as ok, definitely nothing special,... More
