My girlfriends & I had dinner reservation at 8. We arrived on time to see a large crowd waiting outside the restaurant. After I waited 20 minutes in line to check in was told I wouldn't be seated to 9. Again, 8:00 reservation. People were literally offering to clear tables so they could sit down. Totally understaffed. The service was... More

We were in Sea Isle on Monday, April 10th, before Easter. We were so happy to find that La Fontana would be open for dinner, especially since it seemed that no one else was open this off-season night. We have come here every year since they opened. We remember that the biggest complaint back then was that it was noisy,... More

It's a great place to get together with the family and enjoy some of the amazing Italian dishes. I loved the Gnocchi Sorrentino, most delicious thing I ever had. The atmosphere was very nice. Everyone had a great time and cant wait to get together at La Fontana again.

Very good place til compared to the one in Strathmere with its authentic furnishing. The Sea Ilse one was formerly a diner and while they really tried it still has the feel of a diner. Unlike its cousin it doesn't have the pisano feel.

Love this restaurant. Eat inside or outside in warm weather. Their dishes are fabulous. Like their'gracy' better than others o the island. BYOB makes it a great place to dine on a budget.

Have been a fan of LaFontana since its opening. Bujar is a top notch manager and always on top of his game. All the staff are knowledgeable and helpful when it com to their menu and Bujar is usually found in the kitchen making sure the clients choices are cooked to perfection.. Have never been disappointed.

Even in the off season, there is not a better Restaraunt on South Jersey shore. Waiters are very attentive. And the food- from appetizers through dessert- is always fresh, varied, and delicious. And the owner- knows and remembers all of his patrons. Enjoy this place, we always do!

I just keep coming back! The food is delicious but it does get crowded and loud. That's ok though..because you just always end up talking to the people next to you! Make sure you make a reservation. Honestly..as I hate lines..I think the fact that they accept reservations is one of the main reasons I keep coming back. We were... More

What a wonderful dinner this evening at La Fontana! We had the arugula, beet and mozzarella salad special. It was lightly dressed which was perfect. The mixture of all ingredients was delicious. It was big and can definitely can be split. My husband has the pasta fagiolo soup. He said the pasta was aldente and reminded him of my step... More

I ate here with a group of girlfriends and we just loved it. We were a little taken aback when we first got there at how noisy it was inside, since it is a VERY busy place. Thankfully, we got seated in a back alcove which gave us a little privacy and less noise. Our server was so sweet and... More
