My family has been eating at Fontana for years. The food is always fresh and delicious. Whether you order a Greek salad, or have a souvlaki platter, there is always plenty on your plate. Prices are reasonable. The fried calamari is also quite good (not expected in a Greek restaurant).

Who would of thought that a place called Fontana Famous Pizza would have great Greek food, but it does. Try the Gyro platter, delicious.

Started coming here about 5 years ago. I wish it was 25 years ago. My wife and I order takeout about twice a month. Whether it's the grilled chicken platter or the broiled flounder platter, the food is fresh and delicious every time. Fontana's consistency is what sets it apart from other restaurants. The chicken is seasoned just right, and... More

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

Anytime we want Greek food, we come here. They also serve pizza (which I have never tried). I always get the souvlaki platter with lemon potatoes (yum) which comes with delicious lemon chicken and rice soup. The only problem is the place is very small and there is usually a line. It goes pretty fast but there is really no... 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
