Great food and Flexible with Dietary Needs

Had a great cioppino over broccoli rather than pasta. They didn't hesitate to meet the request. It was wonderful. The seafood was fresh and there was abundant garlic. It definitely wasn't a dish for those who do not like garlic.

The combination of quality and price is a win-win. With my family, we began with the wild mushrooms, a very good choice. One of my daughters had eggplant rollatini appetizer, and I also had the opportunity to try its delicate flavor. As an entree, I had a Pistachio Shrimp Salad, well prepared and original. My wife tried the Marsala and... More

Went with friends to a last minute dinner - and were surprised they had happy hour specials on Sat. We all got the special scallop salad that was a dinner "special" and it was some of the best scallops I've had -the whole thing was very delicious. We also ordered appetizers: crispy calamari that came with a unique and wonderful... More

Dining with friends but our food - eggplant parmesan and veal were just okay. We asked the waiter if we could have something instead of pasta sides and he said 'yes' what ever we wanted. When the bill came, the was an upcharge of $1.99 for poorly prepared veggies that we asked for sauteed but came dry and warm. He... More

I would like to thank Alicia my server for making sure I had a wonderful evening! Keep pursuing your dreams in the field of psychology my friend! I ordered a meat lasagna with garlic bread, and an iced tea. For dessert, I had this chocolate mousse cake with whipped cream. EVERYTHING was excellent and it was a very satisfying meal!... More

We went here with front desk recommendation.This is a noisy and crowded upscale type Italian restaurant, serving pizza and Italian pastas and so forth. Judging form the crowds there, and people of all ages, it is a big hit with the locals. Both out service and our meals were good. My husband had a pizza and i had the special... More

We have been going to Fontina Grille for several years, and we have not had a bad experience. In our most recent visit we made a last-minute decision to go there on a Saturday evening. As usual the place was packed with families. Since we have two young daughters we love how there are always other families there. While the... More

Had a nice dinner with three associates. We all happened to have seafood in various forms, pasta, salad and grilled. All three dishes were prepared well and we all enjoyed them. It wasn't overly crowded but the stark decor kept is a bit noist. The wait staff was not all that attentive, but did quickly attend to a couple of... More

Four of us went to this pleasant Italian restaurant for dinner. For starters we shared two dishes - wild mushrooms and a plate of perfectly cooked and tasty fried calamari. We then had Caesar and regular salads. Our mains were Ravioli Rose crabmeat, Fettuccini bolognese and a shrimp scampi with lemony sauce. The Crabmeat dinner was rather disappointing in that... More

Not a bad place to go with a business friend for lunch--not so sure that it is romantic enough for couples. Food is fairly reasonable when one uses the monthly coupons that come in the mailers.
