Good but not innovative

Neither average not "very good" .. GOOD s probably the right level, with a bill in line with the place .. a bit higher than average but not that expansive either. Sympathetic waiters. The products are fresh and of good quality, the roasting is fine. I would argue that the complexity of the dishes... read more

We had a great time here, the staff were very friendly and helpful with the menu and wine. The food was amazing and quite large. We ordered an entree each and then the mixed meat grill for two that has more than enough for two. The house wine was similar to Australian or New Zealand red wines but was appropriately... More

we had dinner at this charming place where the antipasti were surprising. The mixed grill platter was enormous and ever so tasty, the meat so tender and the sausages superb, not to speak of the ribs and chicken. We were very lucky with te wine suggested by the waitress. It was excellent and reasonably priced. For desert we had orange... More

This restaurant is absolutely amazing. The road towards the restaurant is beautiful and the service is perfect. We usually do not go to the same restaurant when we are on holidays but to this restaurant we went every night. We booked a hotel (villa Ruccelai) and la Fontana is only a view minutes away. The combination of sleeping at the... More

We had dinner one night and it was truly some of the best food and wine we'd had all week... We decided to take a long lunch and return for a nice light lunch. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Waiters are friendly and helpful. The antipasti is above average. My kids have the pasta as their main dishes : nothing special and was rather a bit oily. I skipped the pasta and went directly to the grilled menu: grill chicken (marked as specialty) while hubby has grilled young pigeon. I rated the chicken average (a bit dry) and hubby... More
