The food at la fontanella is delicious!! We tried pasta and the taste was really good-food was enough and price was okey. Also it is a cosy restaurant. However, the staff there is just ok. Some of them very friendly but some of them a...bit cold.More

La Fontanella is together with Arte on the Suikerrui undoubtedly the best - authentic Italian restaurant in Antwerp. About 30-40 couverts. We had oysters pas a starter and a duo of pasta with excellent tagliatelle al dente with truffles and penne in tomato sauce with...peas. Simple and delicious. Excellent wines like a chenin blanc and a salice salentino - available per glass and many more top quality wines at reasonable prices. It was the first time (!)in 40 yrs we came to eat in the “ Statiekwartier” near Central Station as this isn t the neighbourhood where we usually go but this is the exception to the rule. We ll be back.More

I found this restaurant by searching TripAdvisor and I’m so glad I did. Absolutely delicious with old school male servers who constantly check on you. I do recommend making a reservation because the place is small.

Great atmosphere and great Italian food. Generous portion sizes, and awesome staff. The rose ravioli was the favourite but the chocolate lava cake for desert was also super tasty

This restaurant is located in an area which has many sort of low quality restaurants, but it is clearly an exception to the rule. The menu holds a great variety of Italian dishes, both well known and some typical regional ones. The quality of the...food was very good and service was friendly and helpful. The prices are a little higher but well worth it. When we visited on a normal weekday it was almost full, so reservations are recommended.More

Been here several times and the food never disappoints. Always very fresh ingredients and a tribute to the italian cuisine. If you pick one of the suggestions or a dish from the menu, you will go home with a smile. Enzo and his friendly staff...will welcome you.More

Visited the restaurant 3 nights on the trot which probably speaks for itself. Great food, excellent service and a nice atmosphere. Extensive menu, with helpful waiters to explain had dishes as necessary. Limited wine list but good quality plonk. All-in-all a very pleasant dining experience.
