We ate here prior to a show at the Winter Gardens which was a 5 min walk away. The restaurant was empty when we arrived at around 5 pm, but quickly filled up and was very busy within the hour. I needed a low fat meal and staff were only too happy to accommodate this making slight alterations to the... More

The restaurant was clean and very well presented and the service was excellent. The prices were... More

Had a lovely dinner Saturday night - we often go to La Fontana when we visit Blackpool. Freshly made food with loads of flavour, its got to be one of the best Italians I have been to and very reasonably priced. Order the house red wine - its really good

Had a very nice meal in this busy restaurant. Good atmosphere, staff very attentive and food all very good, particularly my husband's steak -and he is not easy to please. Set menu available even on a Sunday night although we did not actually choose from it as there were some even better choices on the main menu. My aubergine bake... More

Was really busy when we turned up (Saturday 1st Nov) and we were told there was a 30-40 minute wait, but we were only sat in the bar for 15 minutes before being shown to our table. The staff were friendly and the food was lovely and really good value for money too. To top this off the restaurant decor... More
