We are locals from Miami and this is one of the Best Italian restaurants around - great atmosphere and service, wonderful new menu and amazing new Chef Giuseppe Galazzi who saw to our every need. I never remember names but wrote his down so I wouldn't forget. Love love the food there.

“Beautiful Courtyard and Fine Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We were treated to dinner at Fontana, located in the historic Biltmore Hotel. We dined at a large table adjacent to the beautiful courtyard, under cover because the weather looked iffy. Because we were not in the air conditioned part of the restaurant, there was a large floor fan just in back of us moving the humid air at approximately the speed of a class one hurricane. I asked the server if it had different speeds, and voila, things became quite comfortable. The service was languid but good and the food was excellent. A gargantuan wine list led to some pleasant discoveries. A fun time was had by all.

“Two superb experiences”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Have been twice and will be back. Great food and drink (even the simpler pastas are sumptuous), dignified Old World service. Ask to sit in the courtyard if weather permits, but remember this is south Florida and a sudden shower might present itself (if so, the attentive staff will take care of you). Even on a holiday weekend, had no difficulties getting seated and served meticulously.
