We arrived without booking but they still managed to fit us in, stating that they were fully booked although the place was empty at that time. We both had the lasagne, which took a while to arrive. the portion looked small but we both felt full by the time we had finished. The waiting staff were polite and friendly enough,... More

Food was excellent and the price was competitive... only gripe was service for dessert.... they took so long to ask I gave up and just paid the bill.... NOTE: the 2 guys serving seemed to not work very hard the girl... More

We have eaten here many times now and the food is always consistently good - we've never had a bad meal. Price wise, I feel it offers good value for money, although like many places, I feel the desserts are overpriced, so very rarely have one (hence my rating as very good instead of excellent). The staff are always courteous... More

Taking into consideration cost, expectation and Tripadvisors failure to provide a GOOD rating I rate La Fonte as very good. I ate here on Saturday night and enjoed the experience overall. There was a good atmosphere in the place and emploees were friendly as a whole (although the waitress became rather stroppy when one diner returned the lime cordial served... More

Love this place! Love the food and the service. The food always tastes fresh and very authentic. There is nothing pretentious about this place - it is all about good honest, tasy Italian food.

Food was excellent, made very welcome by the staff who weren't pushy. Which topped off nicely a lovely birthday day for Jayne. So much so we're coming back with our friends on 4 July
