“Can't Go Wrong Here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

We have been going here for years and enjoy the ambiance, especially at holiday time. Went for a birthday lunch. If you join their club, you will receive 20% off promotions by email for birthdays and other occasions - a nice plus. They also served a complimentary ice cream with a lit candle for my birthday which added to the celebration. They have made changes to the menu which is both good and bad. We REALLY miss the lunch menu trio that is no longer offered and wish there more lunch choices available. The service is good and the food is tasty. If you are seated in a back booth, it can be a bit quieter as the restaurant does get busy.

“Our Special-Occasion Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Fontana's has been our restaurant of choice for many years, primarily for special family occasions. In our judgement It has the best Italian food in town at relatively mid-range prices.

Every course that we've sampled is excellent. Appetizers are excellent; we especially like the bruschetta. Salads are refreshing, in particular the gorgonzola. All pastas are a joy. The fish specials are imaginatively prepared. And desserts are outstanding.

“Completely different experience from 5 years ago”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We went to this restaurant 5 years ago and I was so disappointed, I vowed never to return. 5 years later, another couple wanted to come here and I reluctantly agreed. I was blown away. The food was amazing. The ambience at this restaurant has always been very nice. You feel very warm and welcomed. The staff is nice and the service is good. Can't wait to return

“Fantastic food and wonderful atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I have been going to Fontanas for over 20 years, taking clients there as well as going with family and friends. It never disappoints. The food is great. We had sea bass, spaghetti,calamari and pizza and Italian wine. We sat outside on Oct. 14 and celebrated my birthday. They put on a heater and set up a beautiful table for us. Our waiter was one of the best I have ever had...professional and efficient and friendly and very helpful. I love Fontanas and will continue to go there as long as it stays so excellent. We booked at open table off their web site, and we loved how easy that was.

We stayed at the Cypress Hotel, a short walk from this restaurant. Food and service were good. We left very satisfied.
