The restaurant was quiet, but it was a Wednesday night about 9.30. The waiter was excellent and made us feel very welcome and the food was cooked freshly for us. Would definitely recommend to anyone who likes Italian and would visit again.

Visited La Fontana with family early evening on a Friday night. We hadn't booked and when we arrived it was already pretty busy. There was 5 of us but they didn,t hesitate in finding a table for us, sitting us down and taking our drinks order. The staff were so friendly and attentive and the restaurant was lovely. The food...

Ate here as part of a group of 9. We were sat upstairs with a number of hen do's. One group were visibly drinking shots from under the table and playing drinking games. This is not the sort of place i would expect to see this happening when i want to have a nice sit down meal. Our main meals... More

A group of eight visited the Fontana for dinner. We received prompt attentive service throughout and the three course meal was excellent. There is a substantial menu to chose from and even though the restaurant was not surprisingly extremely busy the service was very good.
