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

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!
