“Great little Italian”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We have eaten in hear quite a few times & really do like it, the food is great with a very good menu, the mushroom pasta is fantastic.
It has a great buzzing atmosphere with staff that are very friendly and always on hand.
We were in on New Year’s Eve and the place was busy with a good atmosphere, my only complaint was that steak was quite disappointing, I had ordered the Sirloin and it was more of a minute steak that had been dashed in the frying pan & was overcooked, I asked for medium.
That aside we will be going back for pasta pasta and more pasta oh and don’t forget the cherry sambuca.

“Excellant restaurant”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

We saw the panto and went to look for somewhere to eat at 10 o'clock in the evening. We asked if they were still cooking and were told, please do come in. The restaurant was nearly empty as it was near closing time but we were made to feel very welcome. We had first rate service and the food was excellant, the staff were all very friendly but not intrusive. I just wish this restaurant was closer to home (we were visiting Blackpool for the weekend) as we would be eating there on a weekly basis.

“My Favourite Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I have to go to the La Fontana whenever I visit Blackpool. First of all to enjoy the ambience of Italy in the UK. La Fontana is worth a visit just for the décor which captures the feeling of being in Italy immediately one walks into the restaurant. Secondly the food is great. I had the lamb shank in a mint and rosemary sauce, delicious! My wife had the veal medallions in a white wine sauce and was equally delighted with the meal. I had a dessert, Tiramasu and it was pure heaven,. A word of warning do not order the Tiramasu if any of your companions are not having a sweet. The waiter brought me my sweet accompanied by two spoons and a cheeky grin. My wife then decided she would like a taste of my sweet. We nearly came to blows over the table. The third reason I visit La Fontana is to reassure myself it is still there and will be available to me on my next visit to Blackpool
