Be sure to eat here after your tour of Fontanel. Delicious Italian fare. Sometimes you even get to enjoy some music while you're dining. Very friendly, attentive staff.

The Fontanella is a quaint restaurant with good food in a nice country setting. The garlic bread is a must have - as it's probably the best in town. The pizza is worth mentioning too. For salad eaters - try the Brooklyn Caesar Salad - You won't be disappointed. All in all, I don't think you can go wrong here.... More

We stayed at the Inn at Fontanel so were very pleased to learn of the restaurant on site - and the bonus was it was Italian, which is our fave! Our first night, we enjoyed Chicken Marsala and Penne with meat sauce and their yummy garlic rolls. The second night we chose to have dinner delivered to our room at... More

My husband tried the Philly Steak and cheese, lots of mushrooms and peppers and big enough to share. I had the pasta special, a chicken dish with lemon white wine sauce, delicious. The portions are large so we ate lunch again on the leftovers! I want to go back and try the pizza or some of the other delicious offerings.

Good Service, ambience, & loved the food! When visiting the Mansion or staying at the Inn, make sure you check out the Cafe! They have some specials & a bar with Sports for locals & tourists, alike, to enjoy!

The food was excellent and they were willing to work with us because of allergies. The staff was friendly and gave us a lot of attention. We enjoyed our experience.

Great food in a relaxing setting. Prices were acceptable, and service was very accommodating, as we were in a bit of a rush to make our zip lining schedule. It would be fun to visit on a weekend.

My wife and I went to tour the Fontanel mansion and came early to eat at Café Fontanella. We shared a 16" house pizza that had good flavor and was loaded with toppings. I was expecting the menu to be overpriced but it was not. Will plan on another meal at our next visit!

On the former land belonging to country music legend, Barbara Mandrell, sits a great restaurant, and comfortable atmosphere. If weather permits, sit outside on the porch, and just enjoy the view. If inside, there is usually good live music. The food is Italian and very good. Every dish I've ordered was very good.

We had a quiet mid afternoon lunch. Pizza, salad & onion rings were very good. Friendly wait staff too.
