My wife and I and our 20 month old son had lunch at La Fontana yesterday. The service was incredible. Staff, especially Elena, anticipated our every need, they even made suggestions to help us manage our very tired and cranky little boy. We ordered individual pizzas. a little pizza is hard to... read more

The most awful dinner of our entire vacation from the doughy bread to the watery carbonara a cream sauce shouldn't be like water and the sauce on the gnocchi was so tart and acidic we barely ate much of either meal save your money

I came here on a whim and had Ivan as my waiter. He was the BEST waiter I have ever had. Knew everything about the resturant, food, and history. Not to mention this was literally the best food I have ever had. It was the sea bass special and tiramisu. Spectacular!

While staying at a hotel in the area my family wanted pizza for dinner but wanted it take-out. I'm always looking for unique gems instead of the chain restaraunt. La Fontana did not disappoint. The pizza had good flavor and had a nice thin crispy crust, it isn't your regular pizza, you can tell that it was crafted with care.... More

Once again, we visited this restaurant for lunch. Not disappointed...I had one of the $5 lunch options. Was a great sandwich on their homemade bread.

What a great find! We enjoyed some of the best Italian food we've ever eaten. Jessica was a wonderful server and made us feel very welcome. Chicken Florentine, lasagna and manicotti were all delicious. Huge portions so plan to come hungry. We'll be back next visit.

We ate at La Fontana on the 4th of July. It was our first visit, even though we live in the area. Ivan, our server, was very knowledgeable and a friendly person. The food was absolutely delicious! (I had just come back from NYC where I ate some of the best Italian food I've every eaten.) My husband and I... More
