Good for a nice dinner conversation

The service is great and they are not rushing us out - it was a weekday evening. The minestrone soup was okay (Too thick). The beet salad was great and the squash ravioli was good. The penne pasta dish was average. I would give it a 3.5 Regards Aarthi

We have used Fontanas several times to host groups of 12 - 24 people and they do a really nice job. The will print private menus, help control costs, and provide excellent service and food. A great option for hosting dinner groups.

We have been eating at Fontana's for more than 30 years. It is our "go to" Italian restaurant because the food is always prepared to perfection, the portion sizes are substantial, the service is always great, the staff is always friendly and the prices are very reasonable. The Caesar salad is excellent and my favorite pasta dish is the Linguine... More

I don't understand why this place is popular. I think it is really expensive, and the food is totally underwhelming. I guess people just don't know great Italian food in the South Bay?? The wait staff is great, and there are white table cloths and all, but they decor isn't up to much, and the appetizers are really expensive for... More

Ambiance: Fontana's is well appointed, the furnishings are well maintained and reasonably comfortable. High ceilings are nice. The main dining area is somewhat large and barn-like, and when it gets full you'll find that it's not a very intimate restaurant. Comfortable but can be noisy. Also, parking can be a challenge. The restaurants' reasonably small lot fills very quickly, so... More

Food was amazing. Husband and had two meals here and it was excellent both times. The only slight blemish was that they were out of prosecco both times. Service is very fast which I like. The restaurant itself is elegant and is quiet enough to have a conversation.

The staff here was friendly and efficient, and the menu kind of has something for everyone, but the food is mediocre. There isn't much competition in Cupertino, which is maybe part of the problem. It might as well have been an Olive Garden as far as I was concerned. You'd be better off going to Cafe Torre, which is a... More

First time visiting this restaurant. It was a wonderful experience. Our server made the night for us. She was very knowledgeable about the menu but more than that she was funny and engaging. The restaurant is very lovely and felt upscale. The menu was superb! We enjoyed tender breaded calamari, colorful caprese salads, succulent scampi & pasta, and perfectly grilled... More

Have had the pleasure of eating here four times; a review is long overdue. Consistently great food, wine and service. Have sampled several dishes on the menu and have always been more than satisfied. The staff are fantastic & the location convenient. I always follow their recommendations on a wine.

Good friendly service, hot bread, nice wine selection.  I found the patio to be relaxing with a fountain.  Not crowded on a Friday afternoon.  They have enough umbrellas, so the sun isn't hot - just right.
