Quite nice.

This was our second visit to La Fontana. It was very nice, but not as good as the last time. The waiter mixed up our steaks, gave us frozen chips and frozen onion rings. A pint of lager cost nearly a fiver. We enjoyed it but we were slightly disappointed as we could have got the same standard of... read more

We've been visiting this for a few years but there was a noticeable difference in portion size and quality this year. Last time we went twice during our stay, this time we went once and didn't return :-(

The waiters were really lovely and couldn't do enough for us, even though they got me trying to speak at Italian! Sounded more Welsh I think! Can be expensive but the early bird is a great deal.

Looked on TripAdvisor for a decent Italian restaurant, saw the ratings others had given it & thought we'd give it a punt. Glad we did. You can see why they've won awards. Didn't book but got there around 6:30, no problem getting a table but the place soon filled up. The staff are great, friendly, funny, cheery but not overbearing... More

This restaurant is our favourite Italian Restaurant in Blackpool. Last night we decided to try a different Italian just for a change. A place that had a good write up too. No names mentioned but it was busy on arrival and we were seated near an external door that didn't close properly, so was a bit drafty. No drinks offered... More
