We went here on Saturday the 6th of December for my birthday meal, the staff I have to say are lovely and friendly, and the restaurant very cosy as has been stated, however the food is awful!! The steak was full of gristle, bland and thin which is why it came over cooked ( I had asked for medium) there... More

I was in a group of 8 and we ate here on a Saturday night and the place was very busy. The service was good and food came in decent time. There was a good choice on the menu and the food was great, everyone in the group had something different and there wasn't a scrap of food left. Highly... More

Cold and hungry we were glad that we passed the restaurant and came back to sample the menu. Great service and atmosphere. We sampled the pizzas and it was without the best pizza I have ever had; light, but so tasty and well cooked. Tiramasu was awesome and again the best homemade example I have experienced. Highly recommended if you... More

We had travelled up from Surrey to see Robert Plant at The Tower Ballroom and wanted to find a highly rated Italian restaurant. We weren't disappointed we chose La Fontana. We were welcomed by a very nice lady who sat us down in the bar area and served us our drinks whilst we looked at the extensive menu. She took... More

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

What a fabulous restaurant. Visited yesterday evening and had a meal with friends. I had a steak main course and a desert and I can honestly say that it was, without doubt, the best meal I have ever eaten in any restaurant. Just delicious. 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
