“Overall good experience”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

Went to Fontanella on a Saturday early afternoon, but after the lunch craze; the tea garden was still very busy, but it is expected as the view from this place is impeccable. When in Mdina, going here is a must. Their menu consists of a variety of teas and hot chocolates (with flavours). They are mostly known for their cakes, however they have a food menu consisting mainly of pizzas, bread snacks and pasta. The only complaint I have is the lack of help from staff to find a table. When a restaurant is so busy, I expect someone to be in charge, instead of letting clients roaming around the tables, hoping to get lucky and eventually find a table.

“Great place to visit”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

This location is one of the most places that you can enjoy nearly a birds eye view of the east and south part of the whole island of Malta . The terrace is unique

“again, again and again ...”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Not sure if there's anyone who hasn't ever visited this place ... excellent as always!

Have visited this place for I don't know how many times but it's always worth a visit. It's always very busy but never dirty and always and efficient. This place offers quite a good variety and have been here for dinner and also sometimes for a coffee and cake treat! The choice is very vast but my favourite remain fontanella pizza and the classic perugina hot chocolate.

Service here is normally efficient, polite and welcoming. Keep it up guys and never get tired of getting it better as you've always did with the setting and the menu!
