Best Calzone ever

This is the most amazing place. The guy who owns it is a mad as a hatter! The food is so tasty and well cooked. The staff are friendly and helpful.

The pizza here was absolutely amazing! Not too soft, not too crispy, not uncooked but not burnt! Just perfect! Also the service was almost quicker than McDonald's! Absolutely amazing! Great and friendly service at the same time. We went without a booking and the restaurant was full, the owner managed to have is seated within 5 minutes. Once seated we... More

The very best place to get your pizza. Other favorites are mussels and lasagne, although a bit gravy! The are closed in witnter time. Then the Italian owner stays with his family in Italy 👍

Well what can I say about La Fontanella? This restaurant is in a parade of restaurants that looks quite run down in a way. However this place is the Jewel in the crown. I am not a keen fan of Italian (ok I eat Pizza and Spag Bol) During our stay we came here on the first night and the... More

Dropped in for takeaway. Service was fast and friendly. Unfortunately, on getting home, we found that the pizza was perfect, but the canneloni had been replaced with a spinach and ricotta canneloni. I received a prompt refund on returning with the dish, so that's a point in their favour.

I am not a big fan of Italian food, but the rest of the group agreed on Italian, and I just thought I would compromise and get my usual lackluster spaghetti dish. Wow, we were greeted by the friendly owner and brought to our seats. The bread, and AMAZING garlic butter were to die for. We just loved it and... More

The place was full but there was room to sit and still be comfortable. Real good Italian food. Try the lasagna, it was awesome. Wine menu was small, like two types only. But it was good. The owner was so happy we came and wouldn't stop saying bye to our party. What a happy man. There is a reason this... More

We looked in Trip Advisor for an Italian Restaurant and so thankful this one came up! No wonder it is ranked so high! It was Easter Monday and we had to wait about 20 minutes. Al of the staff were so attentive while we stood and waited. Definitely a family restaurant patronized by locals. The food was awesome! So worth... More

We came here as the reviews were good & although we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, the food was only average. However we couldn't take our eyes off the owner who is the spitting image of Groucho Marx. He made every effort to make us feel welcome & the place is obviously well known locally as it was full.However, our experience... More

We had an excellent evening meal in this Italian restaurant, for a very modest price. The homemade tiramisù was the best I have had so far, and believe me, I have had quite a few.... Both service and staff were very pleasant. We'll definitely be back when in Zandvoort again!
