We had passed by here for years and never went in. Then, we received a gift card and decided to go. Wow! The five of us had different items, and all were excellent. The portions were huge. It is truly lacking in atmosphere, nothing fancy, but, the food is outstanding. We will go back.

It ain't fancy but it's good. The best falafel in the city. Awesome souvlaki. The new waitress was not super friendly and the bus boy totally ignored a dish he had dropped himself. Still, I go every year when I'm passing through. My wife agrees it's worth the 1 hour out of our way to shelter island just for the... More

I try to pick up lunch for my office at Fontana's at least twice a month. The Gyros are fantastic...their is something quite special. It's hard to find great gyro's in Queens or even Manhattan. The pizza is perfect and delicious. The souvlaki dishes like all come with a greek salad and fries. The portions are huge. You can actually... More

I went to graduate school in Queens more than 30 years ago. I absolutely fell in love with the Greek food. Tzuperb Tzatsiki. Great Gyros. I come back whenever I am there. With the Gyro Platter, you get tons of fresh broiled lamb, plus the salad/sauce pita and always a cup of Greek lemon and rice soup that's a meal... More

If craving for gyro, please make sure the gyro is not from a frozen box of gyro slices which are placed on a grill to heat up. Go for the real stuff and our favorite in NY is by far Fontana Famous Pizza. Always crowded but the gyro sandwiches are delicious. Gyro meat is stacked up on the sandwich and... More

You haven't tasted excellent Souvlaki and Gyro till you've been to Fontanas . We started eating there 20 years ago and return at least once every two Months. Far from fancy , neat and ultra busy .

Moved to Long Island 10 years ago. Anytime I pass by I pick up a platter. Amazing comfort food! The fries and onion rings are the best!

Fontana is a very popular restaurant to have lunch or dinner at. Irrespective of what you order, the dish is delicious. Their menu has variety and not limited to pizza. Their chicken, rice and lemon soup is the best! My husband does not normally like soup and is quite picky with food. However, he likes Fontana's chicken, rice and lemon... More

Moved out of area some years ago but when in Bayside area always try to go to Fontana for souvlaki, gyros, lemon soup, baklava. Haven't tried many other dishes. Due to its corner location on crowded Northern Blvd, parking can be a problem. Fontana has been in its same spot for years and is not the most modern but you... More
