We had the pleasure of eating here a couple of evenings ago. The restaurant is set out like a lovely little Italian terrace inside. They don't take bookings but we had no problem getting a table on a Friday night. The food is fairly priced with a really excellent choice. Can recommend the ribs to start, and the Spaghetti Marinara... More

We visited here for dinner on Friday night. The inside was really delightful. A beautiful setting. The food was absolutely delicious. The waiters had excellent humour which we thoroughly enjoyed. The size of the pepper mill was hilarious! Would highly recommend this. A well established family business with the same chef for 21 years - wow! The food is made... More

Came here after reading a couple of reviews online and I was not disappointed. The food was gorgeous, and exactly how Italian should be. The layout and decoration of the inside was amazing and gave you a real feel of Italy. The service of the staff was the best I've probably experienced in any restaurant I've EVER been too, I...

After a grey, chilly day in Blackpool, La Fontana was an absolute delight. The staff were so friendly and charismatic, and the food was excellent. I ordered the mussels fra diavolo, tagliatelle la fontana, and sticky toffee pudding. My friend and I agreed that the sticky toffee pudding was the best we'd ever had. They also brought us out two...

Made our trip to Blackpool. So good we went back the following night. The staff are super and great attention was paid to every detail. The food and house wine was superb. If I'm ever back in Blackpool it would be our first port of call. Or alternatively you could open a restaurant here in Dublin..Please :)

Visited on 12/07/16 to celebrate our sons graduation. Received a warm welcome as always. Pizza and pasta both excellent, authentic and fresh. The attentive and friendly staff made sure this was an extra special visit, we even had a celebratory firework dessert!! Complimentary sambuccas rounded off a great evening. This is a little gem of a restaurant, not the flashiest... More

I used to go to this restaurant weekly when I lived in Blackpool and had done since it opened until I left the uk. I have been a few times since in the last 21 years and always enjoyed it just as much but this time was very disappointing perhaps as the owner Franco wasn't there. I had my favourite!... More

My first time to this restaurant but my girlfriend had been dozens of times over the years. No atmosphere run by staff with poor food a total waste of a night out.

We have eaten here a few times before, but this is such a nice restaurant and the décor makes you feel like you are eating under the stars in Italy. The service by the staff was 1st class again, the guy that served us (I am sorry I do not know is name) is so funny and a real asset... More
