I have been here twice and the food was excellent each time. The staff are all friendly and it has a romantic setting, but also great for families and large groups.

The 'very good' reviews on here we decided to try La Fontana whilst in Blackpool. We were welcomed into a beautiful restaurant, well presented, extremely clean with twinkly lights on the ceiling - lovely atmosphere. The staff are probably the best thing about this place, so friendly and attentive! However the food was awful! We both left the majority of... More

Myself and my partner went twice over the bank, Friday and Sunday. To be honestly, it was faultless. I like the fact that you can just turn up and relax in the nice lounge area until a table is ready for you. The restaurant itself is lovely, the food great, and the staff, well, beyond good. It has the feel... More

My wife and I spent a wonderful evening on our 40th wedding anniversary at La Fontana. The food was superb, the staff friendly and attentive and the ambience relaxed. I recommend this restaurant wholeheartedly. A gem!

This isn't a cheap restaurant, but not too expensive either. You get what you pay for, and here we had some really nice food. I had pizza with a garlic bread starter, my girlfriend pasta carbonara with bruscetta to start. Both meals were excellent, and our little boy really enjoyed his sausage and chips with ice cream for dessert. The... More

Whenever we take a trip back to Blackpool (used to live there 12 years ago) we ALWAYS, without a doubt take a trip to La Fontana. Every time we visit the food, service & wine (!) is implicit. There is no faulting it, the staff are wonderful & always make a fuss of our children (now 10 & 7) who... More

This restaurant was a gem to find, stumbled upon it after trying some high street restaurants which were fully booked and as not from blackpool hadn't heard of here, this will not be our last visit. We were seated upstairs were the decor was beautiful. Orders placed and food came relatively quickly and comments from our party were that all... More
