Been coming to Nerja on family holidays for several years now but this is the first time eating in La Fuente. Choice was driven in part by some of our party being on a strict gluten free diet. The host was very welcoming and he...and the other staff did everything to make our experience a memorable one. Incredible gluten free menu including pizza and pasta. The restaurant provided full reassurance that the food was totally gluten free, including separate friers for deep frying. Lots of variety in our order including steak, fish, and pasta. Everything was good. Dishes come with a little flag marked gluten free for further reassurance. Thank you La Fuente for a wonderful evening, We will be back.More

No idea how it is rated so high, but this is a decent but pretty standard Italian restaurant with a jovial host. We had 2 nice plates of pasta but nothing special.

Paolo made us feel comfortable and lavished us with the best dinner in this Village, including entertainment but very light and humorous. Do not miss this restaurant!. Fantastico, la cena perfecta y el servicio imposible mejor.

Very good restaurant just by the Balcón! Genuine Italian food and staff. When we where deciding the wine the waiter brought 3 bottles and created a little wine tasting for us! So nice! The pasta and meat was super fresh and top quality!

The owner Paulo is A DELIGHT. his easy humour is lovely and he was so attentive. He made it very easy to work around my dietary requirements - the gluten free and lactose free pizza is some of the best I've EVER EATEN - so...much so we went back a few days later! Nerja is struggling under the pandemic restrictions on travel but this gem, despite not being busy had great atmosphere.More
