We throughly enjoyed our meal tonight, I had the lasagna and my husband had the eggplant parmigiana. Both were delicious. We noticed most people were bringing leftovers home, not so with us, we ate all of it. My husband actually said at the end of the meal " I wish we had a restaurant like this close to home"

Take it from a local, La Fontana is the real deal. It's small enough to feel like you're at an extra table at your Italian grandmother's, and the food tastes like she worked all day just to make you happy. It had been awhile since we stopped by, but the veal parmigiana and Scampi La Victoriana were as good as... More

We saw La Fontana on TripAdvisor and it was excellent just as the reviews said. The food was delicious and our server Ivan was the best! Thanks TripAdvisor reviewers for helping us find this great little restaurant, a true gem in West Ashley!

We saw this restaurant close to our hotel and checked it out on Tripadvisor. The reviews were glowing so we headed over after checking in. What a wonderful dining experience! Our server was Alana and she was terrific. She helped accommodate my husband's dietary needs without batting an eye. He had what he called the best eggplant Parmesan he has... More

Came in for lunch today was amazing. Our server Alana was very sweet she even held the door for us to come in very welcoming. She helped us decide what we would enjoy and the meal was great. The eggplant was fresh and tasty. My husband had a meatball sandwich and was stunned at how great the flavor was. Best... More

My boyfriend and I found this restaurant here on trip advisor. We went completely off of the reviews and let me say that it was everything we were expecting plus more. Angelo was our server and he was just great. He was the nicest server we could've asked for. The atmosphere was very quaint, cozy and elegant. And the food,... More

The atmosphere is cozy and friendly. We had the best Italian food of our lives. I thought it was a little pricey but turned out to be a great value for quantity and qualify. Alana provided wonderful service . Any time we are back in the area we will be back.
