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!

OMG! First of all, who would have thought that one of the best pizzas in my life would come out of a tiny seaside in the Netherlands? I had the pizza twice in my two and a half days there, and I don't regret it for a second. Even the bread and butter was delicious. I forget what I ordered,... More

Arrived on my own, place nearly full, stood around waiting for someone to receive me, was ignored for about 5 minutes, then I asked a waitress if there was a table for me, got a mumbled reply which I did not understand.. I then stood around for another 10 minutes... a few other guests arrived in the meantime and some... More

We spent a weekend in zandvoort and we were searching for an easy dinner. Could not find a better place than Alfredo's La Fontanella. A step in Italy, very cozy and pizza, not an Italian one but so much better than Dutch average. Have a talk with Alfredo is a must and deserve a visit to la Fontanella, we will... More
