Omg this place will never disappoint you. Came back to Waterford mainly for this place and was well worth it. The most amazing food, lovely atmosphere, superb staff who are so accommodating. And it is so reasonably priced, menu alone is mouthwatering, portion sizes are so generous, there is no way of faulting this place, even had a flower for the ladies on valentine's :-)

Went to La Fontana recently to see what all the fuss was about. We all had the early bird. The food was gorgeous.. Italian cooking at its best for such a reasonable price. Will be returning there soon for another taste of Italy.

The atmosphere here is lovely and the menu is very good. Good quality ingredients and good selection of Italian wines. However, I have never had food so salty. There was no need for so much salt in the food. I understand the need for seasoning in food but it was way too much. Everyone at our table thought the same.

I haven't noticed this in any other italian restaurant, and I have been to a lot of Italian restaurants, in Italy and in Ireland. Perhaps this was a once off as I have not heard anyone else mention it in other reviews. Please don't spoil lovely fresh ingredients by over seasoning.

We had an excellent meal here. The Chicken in creamy mushroom sauce is great. Chocolate cake was brilliant. Its a little pricey if you cant get there before 7P.M. for the early bird menu. The early bird menu is fantastic value at €20 and has a big range including steak for which there is NOT a supplement. Coffee is also included
I saw people bring in their own wine at a corkage charge of €5.
They sell wine by the carafe also at €13.20 for 1/2Ltr.
There is a lovely atmosphere there. This was our first visit and we will definitely be back
