Called in at 6 p.m. for a meal before seeing a film at the Cube. Although many tables had reserved signs, a table was quickly found for us. Plenty of choice on menu. The pasta was excellent and the shared pudding was superb. Prices very reasonable £35 for two but we didn't have a starter. Downside is that its not... More

I took my children aged eight and fifteen to La Fonte for dinner, having had some good lunches here previously with friends. It's a small restaurant and booking was essential on a Saturday evening, even for a 6.30 slot. We had a table in a corner near the bar with a lovely view out of the window at dusk. The... More

Not what you expect from a '' Bistro'' in Corby. This is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to and this is simply, as always down to the Chef in charge. Truly excellent food and more than value for money. I have been searching for a decent eatery for years in the Northamptonshire area, not only for... More

You don't walk in expecting to have an amazing experience but the food is gorgeous and you are well tended to.

Have been here a few times and it is by far the best Italian restaurant in the town. As for the calzone... fantastic!

My mum and I popped in here for a treat, instead of going somewhere else for chips, chips or chips. Our meals were delicious, and service was quick. Only down side were the tiny bottles of cider. Can't wait to come back for a romantic evening meal with the hubby.

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 .
