Top night was had here. Very good food, long and excellent wine list, and slightly bonkers surroundings ( a mixture of Aladin's cave and a wine cellar). Pricier than a trattoria, but food was so good that it was worth it. Very friendly and informative staff too

This is not your average 'fine-dining' establishment. It is quirky (borderline weird) and needs to be taken with a pinch of salt. The service is not warm and friendly, but it is efficient. The wine glasses and bulky and colourful - something to get used to! The food, however, was great, and that is after all what makes or breaks... More

I was in Verona for a business trip and we didn't know where to go for dinner. It is difficult in a such of beautiful city like Verona is to decide where to go because the majority of restaurant look nice but my attention has been caught by La Fontanina "bizarre" interior design so I booked for 3. We spent... More

Beautiful restuarant, loved the atmosphere and the service was impeccable. The food was great- the truffle tortellini was the absolute stand out dish, I'm still dreaming about it!

The food was good. The interior was had a nice eclectic charm about it, but it was too hot to enjoy a nice dinner. The staff was attentive. It was strange that they did not open our bottle of wine at the table. Overall was slightly disappointed with the experience considering its Michelin star restaurant.

We ate here because it is handy for where we were staying and it had been closed on our previous visit to Verona. Started not too well when they tried to put us inside on a hot night despite two empty tables outside. Inside is pretty and has air con, but terrible musak. We ordered the fish tasting menu and...

We took friends to the Fontanina ten years after our first visit and were delighted to have just as enjoyable an evening as the first. Other friends, to whom we have recommended this restaurant a place to spend an evening between operas, have reported excellent experiences but it's not a place to visit if you need to be at the...

Experience was rushed... Food was okay. I would not recommend this place. We like great food and excellent service. This place was very cute but we felt rushed and oversold on mediocre food. We ate at much more authentic and delicious restaurants in Verona. Avoid this restaurant and stay in the other side of the bridge. 180 EU for crap!
