Went here yesterday with a voucher for a 3 course meal for 2. Was not disappointed met by friendly waitress who took our drinks order and left us with menus and advised the terms of our voucher.She gave us time to choose and returned with a big smile and took our order.The starters arrived and were tasty. Layered aubergine in a tomato and cheese sauce and Antipasto Romana.The pasta dishes which followed were well flavoured and plentiful. Desserts are provided by Crolla the chocolate and whisky was unbelievably divine.
A restaurant which I would have highly recommend.

Good selection on the menu. Fast service, although they were fairly busy and nice food.
A little bit pricy considering it's location.

Bought a voucher for here having read past reviews was sceptical about going. However a warm welcome by friendly waitress and awesome food quickly changed our mind. Cosy, quaint and welcoming atmosphere made for an enjoyable meal. Especially loved the cheesy tunes

Visited La Fontana after purchasing a discount voucher, appeared excellent value for money with 2 3 course meals for £15.

The restaurant itself had a bit of a 'grubby' feel about it overall however, the waitress was very pleasant and took our drinks orders promptly. The juice was flat and very sweet.

When our starters arrived we were both horrified to notice that the 'homemade' bread that came with the starters had mould on it! The waitress was suitably mortified and very apologetic however, we decided not to gamble with the main courses, cancelled our orders and left.

Horrible experience and one I will definitely not be repeating. One thing learned from this, if an offer appears to be too good to be true - it probably is!
