Very ood food and service

The meals were very good and the service was excellent. The server gladly split our meal because the servings were so large. We'll probably be back!

On New Year's Day, my wife and I decided to try Fontina because a) it was one of the only restaurants open and b) it was full of people. After dining there, it was clear that it was only full of people because it was one of very few restaurants that were open that day. The slow, sloppy service combined... More

We are very sad to hear that you did not enjoy your meal with us at Fontina Ristorante. There is no excuse for sub-par service not food that you did not thoroughly enjoy. Pleasanton is a great town filled with many wonderful places to eat and we pride ourselves in taking part in this tradition. We would be very happy... More

Good selection of Italian food and a good choice if you want a filling dinner and fast service. We enjoyed the restaurant--four visits so far.

I visited this place with a huge group of friends and kids. They were kind enough to accommodate us all and the active kids. The food was very delicious and so is the service.

"Old town" Pleasanton is filled with TONS of great restaurants and little shops, and the turnover of new restaurants is frequent. However, there are a handful of restaurants that have stood the test of time and this is one of those places. The food here is consistently good, portions are great, drink are very reasonably priced for the generous amounts... More

I've been eating at Fontina for the past 8 years. I've tried plenty of other Italian restaurants in Pleasanton (including all the others located on main street) and Fontina continues to be my favorite place for Italian food in town. Their sandwiches, salads, Sunday brunch dishes, and dinner pastas and entrees are all delicious. I have never had a bad... More

Good indoor-outdoor cafe in great "old town" area. Generous bar drinks. My two companions said that their meals were tasty. My Veal Saltimboca served over mashed potatoes resulted in loss of most Saltimboca flavors. Was there really ham there? Vegetables were overlooked.
