Visiting Corby again, I couldn't resist lunch again at La Fonte. It was quite busy on a Wednesday lunch but we were seated and served speedily by friendly but unobtrusive staff. Olives to start, then two excellent pastas and a risotto from the lunch menu. One wine and two soft drinks plus three coffees - excellent value at £40.

I've had dinner here a few times now and think this place should have a good review written about it. The menu is extensive, food very good and freshly cooked (love the risottos) and the service is fast with attentive staff - well worth a visit but it's small enough so maybe booking us a good idea.

I have eaten here on various occasions and always been satisfied with the food and the service- the only downside I've experienced is that it closes early and as you near this time it is quite evident that they want you to go quickly .

Love this little place for lunch and have enjoyed every dish I've ever ordered from pasta to steak. Their tiramisu is delish!! Prices are very reasonable too and there is always daily specials available

Firstly I'd like to say that Italian food is my is favourite food as often I feel I could had made something as equally as good myself. Secondly I'd like to confess I am now wrong about my first statement. The food was absolutely lovely and the staff were fantastic. Italian food has made a massive jump in my favourite... More

Monday lunch is not normaly a good time to eat out but as it was our son's birthday (he works in Corby and we travelled from West Midlabds) we decided to try La Fonte, having read good reviews on Tripadviser. We were. Not disappointed either with the foid or the service Nd it was quite busy, always a good sign.... More

Corby has been crying out for decent restaurants for years and at last it now has one - hallelujah! The menu is varied enough to suit everyone - pizza, pasta, risotto, fish and meat, portions are generous, the food is delicious and the service good. The complimentary toasted bread with garlic and herb better was much appreciated, everything was hot... More
