We happened to be visiting Charleston (SC) during their annual "Restaurant Week" (actually about 18 days long!) Being hungry for Italian cuisine, we researched those specialty venues, and drove by a few restaurants. We finally settled on La Fontana, and drove there for our "Roman Feast". The restaurant was not crowded, and we were immediately seated. Our server, Brianna, greeted... More

I Found La Fontana on trip advisor. Very good Italian food. New to trip advisor but thought I would leave a review as it is how I found them. The bartender was very knowledgeable of the menu & I allowed her choose my meal as it was my first time there. The shrimp & scallops were cooked to perfection... my... More

Wife and I wanted some great Italian food and we were not disappointed. Arrived into Charleston during restaurant week. Wife had a salmon special (putinesca). The special was great.

We stopped by for dinner on new years eve based on the reviews. The food was delicious, the service was pretty good, and the atmosphere intimate. My husband's steak was big enough to serve two and the chicken parm I ordered had the most delicious homemade red sauce. I wish I lived closer so I could go back often.

Food was delicious. Had the chicken parm and my wife had lobster over linguine. The restaurant is on the small side so I would recommend reservations. We arrived at 6:00 pm on a Sunday and only one table was available and they needed it by 7 for a reservation. We were able to make a reservation for 8 on the... More

We traveled to Charleston on Christmas day so EVERYTHING was closed but La Fontana was open. We didn't know they took reservations so when we arrived at 6pm, they said we have a table but you'll need to leave by 7pm. We stayed, had excellent service and great wine recommendations. We were not rushed and treated excellent. Food was AMAZING
