We had a very good and pleasurable meal at La Fontanella. The restaurant is not too big, so a reservation is recommended. We shared a caesar salad and I had the pollo sorentino (pan seared chicken breast with eggplant, cheese and a light tomato sauce. Delicious!

Although there's a fair number of Italian restaurant choices in Southwest Florida, it's hard to beat La Fontanella. Family run, this wonderful place packs them in for dinner, and why not -- the food is plentiful and exceptional. Plus, service is prompt and friendly. I enjoyed the Chicken Porcini, in a very tasty brown sauce loaded with perfectly cooked mushrooms.... More

We were very surprised as to how good the food was. Our waiter did a very nice job. Will definitely return. Only reason not a 5 star, is it is in a strip mall (As most are in Florida), so the atmosphere could have been a touch better. But remember, it is the food that counts, and it was good.

Friday evening reservation @7:30 PM in height of the season. Seated on time. Every table taken. Would classify tables as slightly close spacing. Waitress arrived within minutes of our being seated. Good wine list. Ordered the grilled calamari appetizer to split. Excellent and a half order was plenty. Wife had grouper off of the specials menu - rated it excellent.... More

We have been back to La Fontanella several times in the last few weeks and every dinner has been outstanding. The atmosphere is friendly and warm. The owners know their regular customers and Moe is out in the restaurant every night - along with cooking fabulous dinners. The Osso Buco and pork shank (Osso Buco style) were both outstanding. The... More

Our friends of 40 years visited us in Florida last week. We went to La Fontanella. The food was excellent. The only disappointment was that they do not do anything special for someone's birthday. :( The veal is exceptional. The seafood pasta is out of this world. Even the steak is top notch. Bread is good but not olive oil.... More

This storefront restaurant consistently serves fine food, and delivers good service. Friendly owners. Very large portions. Good salads. We split a shrimp dish and a salad/ plenty to eat. Our companions could have split chicken Marsala. Nice wine list, but no alcohol which some of us missed. Worth the ride from Naples.

We happened upon La Fontanella Ristorante about 3 years ago. It would be easy to overlook as it's in a strip mall just down from one of the 100s of Publix Supermarkets in SW Florida! We enjoyed our first visit and we have since returned several times, taking 4 different guests who have come to visit from out of town.... More

Ate here last night based on reviews on TripAdvisor and a suggestion from a friend. When asked which veal entree he would suggest, the waiter said "Go to the Italian restaurant down the street"...maybe we should have. Not funny. Both of us ordered the specials...the grouper was very good, their variation of veal saltimbocca was average. Overall, not worth the... More

From the minute I walked through the door, I knew I was in for a treat. The service was impeccable and the restaurant smelled amazing. I started with the caprese salad which was by far the best one I have ever had (and I did study abroad in Italy, so I have had a lot). I then had the veal... More
