Large group...beautiful food...amazing personal service..lovely ambience...well priced...only one small gripe...no "house wine"...it would be better if there was a good value red and white wine rather than paying 27.50 a bottle which really adds up with a large group...will definitely be back

I visited La Fontana with friends twice in the last 6 weeks and wont be visiting again. I put our first visit down to bad luck as the restaurant was very busy on the night and the service was slow however service was twice as bad on our most recent visit. Despite having booked we had to wait 20 minutes for our table and then a wait of up to 45 minutes for our starter with a further long wait for the main courses. The lady that served us did apologies however she was not impressed when we complained that other tables had turned over twice before we got our main courses and seemed to think that a free shot of lemoncello would make things right. I must add the food was lovely however the service was totally unacceptable.

Found this by chance on the riverfront. Great authentic Italian food. Delicious pasta for my wife and I, steak for my son and pizza for my daughter...so all tastes were covered! Friendly staff nice ambience.

Can’t speak highly enough of La Fontana. Excellent food in very nice surroundings. Staff are very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Aperol spritz is a must!

Visited with my wife on a Monday evening. We had not made a reservation.
on arrival we were immediately welcomed by our waiter who turned out to be knowledgeable, affable and efficient.
The food was very good as was the wine list. Our waiter insisted our chosen wine should be decanted and was continually checking if our glasses needed replenished.
Having arrived with no expectations - we were simply passing and called to check if we could get a table. - we were more than pleased with what proved to be a good find.
