Mommy's b'day celebration

We visit Fontina's Restaurant quite a bit and it's delicious everytime. Almost everything on the menu is delicious and their service is friendly and welcoming. My wife and I stopped in on Easter for a quick lunch prior to wine tasting. Tried their meatball sandwich for the first time. It was great and came with a salad too. Like always,... More

This is my favorite place for a nice dinner in Pleasanton. I have had the filet with prawns, which is excellent. The salmon with blackberry sauce is also delicious. The salads are large enough to share. And, the chocolate fondant cake is divine.

I especially love the calamari steak and my husband loves the blackberry sauce grilled salmon. The bread is always fresh and oh, so tempting! Fontina's is the first place I think of when taking people out to dinner in Pleasanton -- we've never been disappointed. The service is excellent and the staff makes everyone feel like a valued customer, even... More

Long time downtown staple serving very good Italian. Good service. Open kitchen to watch preparation of food. A bit on the pricey side, but many dishes are reasonably priced. Good people watching from window tables.

My companion had the French toast brunch; I had a pear, Gorgonzola, walnut salad. She was delighted with her meal and indeed it was very good. The salad, on the other hand, was very, very poor. The dressing, which was to have been raspberry vinaigrette, resembled watered ketchup. Walnuts were glopped together, pears hard and tasteless.

We met another couple for an early Saturday lunch. Early enough to watch the staff and owner get ready for the lunch crowd. I spent some time talking to the owner, John, a very friendly customer oriented guy - we had subsequent discussions with him at the end of lunch and on our way out the door that were equally...

We were in the habit of going to the city (SF) to find good restaurants; however, we have found Fontina which is close to home offering wonderful service, delicious meals at fair prices and have been inviting family and friends to Fontina always resulting in a fulfiling meal enjoyed by all. I always request a substitute in ingredient in a... More

Fontinas is another delicious place to eat, especially outdoors on a warm evening, in Pleasanton. Their service is always friendly and welcoming. They have a couple of ravioli dishes that are oh so yummy! Definitely worth trying this place. :-)

We visited Saturday night with my brother and his wife. Service was quick and friendly. There is a good choice at this place so we all found something we liked. Good atmosphere. Will no doubt visit again before the end of our holiday
