“Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

La Fontana, The Quay, Waterford, Ireland a must visit for great fresh food at reasonable prices and fab staff. Enrico and his team perform consistently. I have never had a bad meal there. The team are friendly and not too formal. So if you want it you can have good banter as well as great food.

“Great Italian Food and Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

I recently visited La Fontana on a trip to Waterford CIty. I've found it difficult in the past to find good quality Italian food in Ireland but I really love the food and wine in La Fontana, and the dining experience in general. It has been my favourite Italian restaurant in Ireland after living here for nearly 10 years. Although the restaurant was particularly busy with a very large party and short staffed on the night, we never felt this effected the very friendly and professional service. As someone who loves to dine out, especially for Italian food, I would highly recommend this restaurant!
