Ate here with a group of 8 and all of us loved the food. I do have to say that I wished a salad was included with the meal as it is a pet peeve of mine. I had a chicken dish which was excellent and the group raved about the calamari. Have been here twice on our vacation as... More

My husband and I ate here two nights ago. Our server seemed nice enough but did not have a good understanding of the English language. After she recited the specials, which were hard to understand because of her heavy accent, my husband asked what on the regular menu was popular or special. I guess because he used the word "special",... More

This is the third time we have been to this restaurant. Although the food is excellent, every time, the service leaves a lot to be desired. The wait staff is somewhat indifferent, and even a bit condescending, and the place is definitely NOT kid friendly. They have high chairs, but do not make kids feel welcome. Also, we could barely...

Well, for starters, the pasta fagioli had an aftertaste. The arugula salad special was a disgrace for a whopping $16.95! It was small, with one microscopic piece of cantaloupe in it and 5 pine nuts (i counted them!). Two in our group ordered the pasta entree special, which was way undercooked, with very bitter broccoli rabe, and both were shrimp-less.... More

First visit back of the year, it's like there was never an off-season. Everyone recognized each other and the food continues to be exceptional. Tried some different appetizers and the gluten free pasta, all outstanding. It's hard to order something different because you know you love it. Try something else, you will love it too.

Food is overpriced. Not worth the money. Not family friendly. This place was a let down if you are looking for a great meal at a decent price go across the street.

My family and I dined here on a Saturday night. I have a four year old son so we asked about a children's menu when we made the reservation. We were told they didn't have one but could make any meal child size. They charged us $15 for 3 cheese ravioli! It was not kid friendly. They had no cups... More

From the moment I walked in I knew I was going to have a great experience. I've been to La Fontana a few times with friends and always had a great meal. Thursday night was my first solo visit which was just as enjoyable. Ledian was my waiter and provided the perfect amount of knowledge and attentiveness. While chef and... More
