Delish!

We ate at La Fontana last night. We reserved a table via OpenTable and when we arrived we were given the option to dine inside or outside...we chose outside because of the beautiful weather. La Fontana is a BYOB, A+ in our book. The fried mozzarella app was excellent. We aren't a fan of pesto sauce... read more

Food was very good , yet it took 1.5 hours to get entree. Service was terrible. Restaurant and bathrooms were not kept neat and clean. Never again.

So glad to have a good 'go-to' dining place in Sea Isle after so many years of disappointing restaurants. There are at least two other fairly new restaurants there that I hear are worth trying but with only a week at the beach we did not get a chance to try them. Family and I knew that La Fontana would... More

We have been going to La Fontana ever since it opened and its "still the one". Absolutely love the veal dishes especially the Franchese!! Another favorite is the arugula salad and the antipasto but most of all we love the atmosphere, the staff and especially the chef. La Fontana Coast is a must go to place when in Sea Isle!!!

Had a wonderful evening with a group of friends. You must try the mussels ( red) and the octopus. They were amazing. The sauce in the mussels was so good! It was more of a chunky sauce. Very good. The octopus was amazing. The roasted artichoke on the dish was excellent. No salads are included and everyone is ordered a... More

I came here with my boyfriend and his parents for a birthday dinner. His parents both got the Veal Fontana, and I got the seafood risotto, which we liked. However, my boyfriend got the Veal Parm and it was horrible. The "sauce" seemed like jarred tomato paste. He ate just a few bites. When the waitress came, I let her... More
