One good meal, one poor.

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... read more

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

Four of us had an early dinner here one Sunday. Our service was top notch and the food was very good. Lots of menu choices including several vegetarian dishes other than salads. We were all very pleased having made Fontina Ristorante our choice.

We went here recently for dinner and the food was amazing! There were 6 of us and everyone loved their choices! The chicken Marsala and the pumpkin raviolies both with mushroom entries were simply awesome! The salads were huge even after a couple of us decided to split them and were given our own plates. We had a spinach salad... More

We were a group of 6, had to ask for two baskets of bread and two plates of oil. Actually told us to share. We had to insist. We ate outside, lots of local traffic, plus a few Harleys. Really not very special. I doubt we we try again.

Atmosphere terrible. Just got back from Tuscany and the smallest and cheapest bistro had more ambiance and great flavors! So disappointed! My husband commented that he's done spending $70 for a mediocre meal! Merlot was good- Kinridge..Caesar had no flavor- Linguini with clams and mushrooms should be called Linguini with mushrooms for the lack of clams. The sauce was soupy... More

Fontina's Ristoranti is an authentic Italian warm and friendly spot in Pleasanton with a big menu and delicately prepared dishes. The service is exceptional and the food is fresh and delicious.
