The portobello mushroom with goat cheese appetizer is delicious. The Italian dishes are very good and the salmon is really good. Prices are reasonable and the service is good. I tried the steak there and it was just ok, so I suggest stick to the Italian food and you will be just fine.

This is a really nice place for just a simple dinner or a special one. I had family come in from out of sates and this is one of the first places I take them to eat.

We have never been disappointed with the food. The staff is friendly and attentive. I believe Monday and Tuesday is BYOB even thought they have a bar. The prices are a little higher than we usually spend on dinner so we don't go as often as we would like. The Sunday brunch is amazing, also and reasonably priced.

LaFontana is always a great place to go eat or catch a drink. Beautiful bars and excellent staff. Food is upscale and fresh. Always an amazing fish dish on special.

I've been going to La Fontana since the place opened - and previously went to Risorante Mediterranean in Horsham, which was operated by the same great family. La Fontana is reliably good - particularly meats and pastas. Seafood is generally fine too, but the kitchen really shines with beef, pork and pasta. Excellent bread, too. The bar is nice, and...

I must preface this review with the fact that we ate here a few years ago and it was okay but not memorable. This time it was fabulous. We were part of a retirement brunch. The wait staff was attentive and wonderful. The food and the presentation were excellent and had a wide variety. I do not eat carbs and... More

Went for a reunion celebration. Walking in had no idea where to go. Had to ask. The hot apps we're serve on a plate with no stereo. Disgusting to say the least, they were all cold and just no caring about the presentation or how it was served. Food was below par. Never ever will I ever go back there... More

Wonderful family time. Mom took us all out to dinner. We picked somewhere she has enjoyed in the past. She is 88 and quite set in her ways. So there were 8 of us altogether and we had a reservation for 7pm. Everything went smoothly. We spoke to the head of wait staff ahead of time and made sure mom's... More

We were there for a private gathering and choose from a pre-selected menu. Wrong choice by far. The smoked salmon with penne was terrible and unfortunately my wife ordered the same so sharing wasn't an option. Neither of us finished our dinner. The "absents" of any salmon may have been represented by a Friskie's shredded cat food variety with plenty... More

The only reason this restaurant is not getting a 2 is the service which was wonderful. The food is average Italian. I had Ahi with a dijon sauce which was delicious but it was served with a lump of scalloped potatoes that had no business being on the plate.It was too rich and heavy to be served with Ahi and...
