Wonderful authentic Italian restaurant! Best caprese & eggplant parmesan we've had! Margherita pizza was yummy, too. Caesar salad was ok- croutons stale. Will definitely return when we're back in Charleston!

My husband ordered spaghetti and meatballs. We weren't sure if there were small veins (1/2") or gristle pieces in the meatballs, but he only had a couple bites. My lasagna was cold. They did reheat it fo me. We won't be back.

Had dinner here before and was excellent. We tryed it for lunch and gambled on the lunch special. JACKPOT. Start with soup or salad with nice bread and olive oil for dipping. We choose the Tomato Basil Bisque and it was smooth and silky made you want more. I had the Rigatoni with sausage and the portion was huge and... More

This place is a best kept secret, I have passed it hundreds of time thinking it was another pizza place. I went with a large group about a month ago, We had 8 different entrees at our table and everyone raved about the quality. I went again today, for lunch this time, and again everyone loved the food. Reasonably priced... More

Enjoyed the food here with the family. However decor was a bit tired and not everything was available on the menu. My kids enjoyed meatballs whilst I had a veggie pizza and my husband a margarita which unfortunately he didn't enjoy as much. Overall a pleasant place to go to but not setting my tastebuds on fire!

La Fontana might not look like much from the street, but when my family and I tried it, we were very pleasantly surprised! The food was great and we enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. I lived in Italy for a few months and I have to give this place a thumbs up on the quality of the food - delicious!

After a long day on the road we arrived in Charleston late. As we approached our destination we noticed a building I recognized from my childhood. It was a gas station when I was a lad. The marquee however literally lifted our spirits as it read, "La Fontana, Authentic Italian Restaurant." Italian being our favorite cuisine we hurried to unpack... More
