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

We go here about once/yr. This place generally has Average to Decent Italian food. Every time we go we are ok with the food, but not overly impressed. Prob wi return next year as it is close and easy to get to.

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

Good service is the only highlight of this otherwise average Italian restaurant. The food was a step above an Olive Garden, but certainly nothing fantastic. I would visit again, but I imagine there are better choices in the area.

Really not so much to write about this place except the fact that is just another mediocre restaurant that has a rather boring interior which would need a small update. The colour on the walls brings me back to the 90s and the chairs are rather uncomfortable. Also the noise level was very high and I even measured it with... More

I've been going to Fontana's for business lunches and dinners with friends and loved ones for years - it was one of my favorite restaurants in the Cupertino area. After each of my last four visits I've walked away disappointed. The service has generally been reasonable, but the quality of the food has declined. For example, most recently I ordered... More

We have been going here for years and enjoy the ambiance, especially at holiday time. Went for a birthday lunch. If you join their club, you will receive 20% off promotions by email for birthdays and other occasions - a nice plus. They also served a complimentary ice cream with a lit candle for my birthday which added to the... More

Fontana's has been our restaurant of choice for many years, primarily for special family occasions. In our judgement It has the best Italian food in town at relatively mid-range prices. Every course that we've sampled is excellent. Appetizers are excellent; we especially like the bruschetta. Salads are refreshing, in particular the gorgonzola. All pastas are a joy. The fish specials... More

We went to this restaurant 5 years ago and I was so disappointed, I vowed never to return. 5 years later, another couple wanted to come here and I reluctantly agreed. I was blown away. The food was amazing. The ambience at this restaurant has always been very nice. You feel very warm and welcomed. The staff is nice and... More
