Our family group of 5 had a Father's Day meal in June, one person being our son-in-law, who hadn't eaten at La Fontana before. Needless to say he was thrilled with everything, & demolished everything on his plates in record time, thoroughly enjoying every morsel. The staff were as pleasant as ever, especially Stefano, the waiter with a wicked sense... More

Went for an early dinner on the recommendation of the owner of our guesthouse. Group of 12, service was good and quick which was appreciated as we had a show to go to. Food was good quality and reasonably priced, can't really fault. Short wine list but what was on there was good quality. Service very friendly.

We took advantage of the evening offer menu and the food was quite pleasant, but the drinks prices doubled the bill. As we were not heavy drinkers this came as a bit of a shock. Be aware of this.
