I liked the entire experience. Relaxing, enjoyable. Wonderful food and live music from "The Farm" and several local talents. Awesome!

Gluten free menu! Very good for gluten free. The others had pizza which they said was awesome. Our server is in the wrong line of work but the Mgr was very apologetic & took over. We stayed at the Inn- very convenient. Definetly recommend .

Cafe is a good place to eat, lots of choices. Locals came in for lunch, so that should tell you something.

Not the best Italian food I ever had and not the greatest service but our visit was still very pleasant. We took our two small dogs for a hike on the two mile trail around the Fontanel mansion. Afterwards we had dinner on the patio of Cafe Fontanella where they let us bring our dogs. The atmosphere was just perfect.... More

The food was simply delicious. No fuss, just good food. The service was fast and efficient. I'd definitely return the next time I visit Nashville.

Very accommodating and friendly. Good food at reasonable prices. The Caesar salad with grilled salmon was excellent. Good burgers and Italian dishes as well. The garlic butter rolls are literally dripping in butter. They are impossible to resist!

We went with a group of Corvettes to tour the Fontanel Mansion and after the tour we ate at the Cafe on site. Oh my god the food was so good! We both had a salad and shared an order of Buffalo wings. The wings were awesome. Others had pizza which they said was delicious, it sure looked it. The... More

We ate here for my son's 16th birthday. They had live performers which were great, but quite noisy. Other than that, we enjoyed our experience and our server (Ben) was awesome! I have been here a few times in the past and I would definitely recommend this place for locals and tourists. I am looking to stay at the Inn... More

My husband, daughter, son-in-law, and I went to Cafe Fontanella to celebrate my birthday. We arrived around 4:30, and it was not crowded or noisy. We were greeted promptly and offered indoor or outdoor seating. With the outside temps in the 90s we opted to eat inside. Matt was our server, and he was excellent. I told him I was... More
