Had dinner here to see if this was a good place to have a birthday dinner. We definitely wanted the birthday dinner at an Italian restaurant and preferred that the decor be more upscale than the traditional family style Italian restaurants. But most importantly, the food had to be good. Fontana's met all of our requirements: white tablecloth draped tables... More

I have always loved Fontana's. They have changed their menu, and, although my wife and guests enjoyed the meals they recently ordered, I was very disappointed in mine. I have ordered and really enjoyed the cappellini astice for about ten years now, and was pleased to see that it remained on the menu. I order it every time we eat... More

convenient location's, quite, friendly staff and really excellent food. I have eaten here many times and never had a bad experience. They also have a nice outside patio. It is a bit on the pricey side but it is good.

We have eaten at Fontana's numerous times in the last two decades and it has consistently been the best mid-level restaurant for healthy California-Italian food in the Cupertino vicinity. They have good pastas, including with gluten-free and whole wheat options, true Italian (thin crust) pizzas, usually two varying fresh-fish choices that sometimes are exotic but always are tasty and cooked...

The location is convenient, but will not choose to return after a few poor experiences.Several people in the group sent their meals back. Server was not helpful. The only times I go there is when I have not been given a choice of restaurants.

Nice environment inside and out. Our party of four was warmly greeted and seated. Waiter did a fine job all night. Only disappointment was the food value. It was OK food by local Italian restaurant standards but about five dollars an entrée too pricey for the overall value of the dish. Sounds like it has a long local history and... More

Went there for dinner on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was full. I had the penne with sausage which was good. The white wine (Testarossa) was excellent. Had the 3 fruit sorbet for dessert and that was good too. Service was very good considering how busy the place was. Overall: good but not great.

We've been here a couple of times recently, although I never noticed this restaurant sitting here across from target. First time we got the special which was ribeye steak with blue cheese Demi glaze. I requested the waitress not to put the sauce on since I didn't like blue cheese, yet it was there anyways. I asked the steak to... More
