My wife and I took my parents out for a nice meal while enjoying a week at the beach. The food was great, our server was great and the prices were reasonable. Additionally, the portions were quite large. I would highly suggest this restaurant for a more upscale dinner while at the South Jersey Shore.

Food - great, service - friendly, location - gps knows where it is, atmosphere- a bit noisy. Well worth the trip down from Ocean City NJ

We had an incredible dinner! The fig and gorgonzola pasta special was delicious. Our waitress told us that even it's not on the special list we can request it during our next visit. Our server was extremely pleasant and took time with us even though it was a busy Saturday evening in the summer. We look forward to returning soon!

Of course, it's also the only one of its kind in SIC - upscale Italian. La Fontana Coast really packs them in pretty much every night of the week. And on weekends, they turn over about 150 seats a full 3 times. Amazing. But there is a reason. Reliably fresh and well prepared Italian fare with lots of seafood, chicken... More

Our family had a great experience at La Fontana. We were easily able to reserve a table outside on the patio to accommodate our family of 6 plus a high chair for our 15 month old. When we arrived the staff was pleasant and helpful, and our waitress was especially great. They quickly provided ice buckets for our BYO wine,... More

This is a great choice for tasty Italian food. The meals are beautifully prepared and served by a friendly and helpful wait staff. We ate outside so I can't comment on the noise level that others have cited. Portion sizes are more than adequate and prices are moderate. I would definitely go back again. La Fontana Coast is a winner.

I celebrated my 77th birthday at this restaurant on 9 August. We were nine people and the place was packed. We sat outside just like I was used to doing in Italy where I had lived for 8 years. Andrea, from Rome, was our waiter. My son, his Italian born wife and I conversed in Italian and English. It was... More

A.recent second visit to this popular resort spot was a repeat of what we most remembered despite a year in between visits. The noise level and closeness of the tables almost outweighs the wonderful servers and good food. We had early reservations (6:15) and were shown to a table for 2 close to a table already serving 12. There are... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food, service, and atmosphere. The restaurant was very busy but I did not find noise to be an issue. There was also plenty of space between tables. The orange roughy special was impressive. The place reminded me of Limoncello in West Chester, PA. I definitely plan on coming back next summer.
