Stumbled across the restaurant when walking around the town one cold Sunday evening in December. Although not busy, we got a warm welcome from the staff. Starters came pretty quickly, and were tasty. Main courses excellent - the pork with stilton sauce was accompanied by perfectly cooked vegetables (a rare treat), and the chicken in white wine sauce also very... More

Went here for an evening meal after spending the afternoon in Blackpool, and I am so glad we found this place. It must be by far the best Italian restaurant in Blackpool (or anywhere for that matter). The service was flawless, with every single member of staff being friendly and charismatic - not at all scripted. I felt like they... More

Friday night in freezing cold Blackpool and on a return visit to the town I take friends to La Fontana having been here a couple of years ago. At first glance my heart sank as I thought it had changed hands but one of the waiters remembered me after a couple of years! Food was excellent with special praise for... More

Lovely Italian restaurant. Staff friendly, food lovely and good to go as families, couples larger parties, all of which were there when we were there. It's in the centre of Blackpool on a side street just off the promenade one side and off st James square the other side.

As many people have, I have eaten at Italian Restaurants before. But until I ate at La Fontana I can honestly say I have never experienced it before. The staff are so enthusiastic about their work, their food and how it is all presented. The atmosphere, the ambience, the presentation of the interior show you from the start that this... More
