“Favorite meal in Waterford. x 2!”

Ate here more than once and never disappointed. Price is reasonable. Service is GREAT. Food came out perfect and yummy. Liked it so much one day for lunch that returned with a large group for dinner. Both meals were perfect for everyone at the table. Eat here!

“Siblings lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013

Four of us arrived in Waterford for two nights and visited La Fontana on the Quays for lunch (al fresco). Ravioli, cheese platter etc, were all lovely and served up by a good humoured non national. €25pp inc. wine, some desserts and coffees. Recommended!!

“Nice for lunch on the quays”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

Passing through Waterford, please give this Italian a call for lunch and you will not be left short, the place is as good as you will find in the city. the food is very well flavoured and authentically right. House wine is fine too. Location perfect with the quay parking available.

“Good Italian in Waterford”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2013

Went on a wet Friday night without a reservation and had to come back 10 minutes later as they had to see if they had a table. Food was very good. The starters of mussels and bruschetta were great and the pizza and pasta dishes we had were both very good. The tiramisu for dessert was nothing special though. There was a bit of a wait between the starter and the main but it was worth it in the end. When we left, we were told to make sure we made a reservation next time which we both thought was an odd thing to tell us. Overall it was a nice place to go with decent food, friendly service and reasonable prices.
