Description: Elegance and romance prevails at Fontana, the Biltmore's lushly landscaped courtyard restaurant. With its center fountain and views of the Biltmore's Mediterranean architecture, Fontana offers a distinctly European charm and sophistication from sunrise until sunset. Chef Beppe Galazzi uses local and farm fresh organic ingredients throughout the menu. Those enjoying lunch and dinner will have the pleasure of exploring well-rounded regional Italian fare as Chef Beppe strives to offer "what cannot often be found in restaurants and what guests cannot cook at home." Early risers can enjoy a plentiful breakfast buffet or order traditional items a la carte. Buon appetito!

“Outstanding Pasta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Homemade pastas and a special everyday. Best part was that any dish could be a half order. Seafood specials everyday were fresh. Stone crab claws were in season during this visit and they were amazing.

A little pricey, but in line with the area. Service was excellent. Dining in the open space was magnificent!

“Nice every time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

The food and service at the Fontana is very good. It's very centrally located to meet friends and have a drink, or spend the day by the pool.
