Im at a bit of a loss when reviewing this place as our meal couldn't have been much worse. We were four and no one could eat their food. I have never been to an Italian restaurant where the pasta was so bad. The staff were rude and smug just as many find them from reading other reviews on TA.... More

We go to La Fontanell quite often for small family gatherings. My mother-in-law is a familiar face in the restaurant and I think this can help with the service. Overall it's a place with pretty simple food and decent house wines that's probably a bit overpriced. I've never experienced the alleged staff bullying of customers to order full main courses...

We used to love this place, and have recommended it to others many times -- but never again. My three children and I were just KICKED OUT for not ordering enough. Our *attempted* order was a margarita pizza (adult-size), a green side salad, a bottle of water (large), and a rather expensive fresh juice beverage for me (around €7). The... More

Pizzas are tasty. But that's all! Horrible service, very slow! No attention to the customers. Absolute lack of management! Chaotic taking of orders by different waiters, no follow up! The chabby waitress with black hair ( so called floor manager) absolutely the MOST horrible person ever!!! Extremely arrogant woman!!! The main idea of this restaurant is to make you pay... More

We go nearly every we, with the kids, friends, the two of us... we just love it. Let's start with the few niggles: lights a bit bright, sometimes noisy (often full and often with kids), menu does not change a lot and the lady which looks like the boss is arrogant and unfriendly. However, all is saved by the superfriendly... More

Love to go with kids in summer. There is a playground. The waiting time is shortened. Pizzas are good. The waiters are nice. Good time to enjoy.

Wont come again. We were seated at a plastic table in the summergarden. Actually table for two but our daughter was put at the side.fine for us as she did not want to eat. But we were made clear that it was "mandatory" for her to eat as well. We had been here before but now will never come again

The main interest of this restaurant is it's amazing playground for the kids. And you'll need it to keep the little ones waiting for the food to come. Really slow service, and not really friendly. Furthermore, even though they have this great playground, they seem annoyed when a family with kids arrives. And if you mention you have kids when... More

Good pizza, good meat, pasta rather disappointing. Very popular, so service can be slow. Fantastic playground for kids.
