The menu at La Fontanella di Enzo looks like any other Italian restaurant. Do not be deceived by this; the food is delicious and authentic. No cheese in the Saltimbocca Romana here! This is a place you can trust: same owner/chef (Enzo himself) for years, same staff, even some of the customers are regulars for over a decade. Excellent food... More

This is normally an area of Antwerp where I never go for dinner. It's filled with tourist traps and it's not a nice neighborhood to hang out. But we were going to see the Cats musical in the Koning Elisabethzaal and were looking for a place to eat. Going through the tripadvisor reviews I decided on going to this place.... More

+ They have quickly found a free table for us, although restaurant itself was quite busy. - We spoke English with staff, but they brought us Dutch menu; that was not really a problem because it's not very hard to understand. - We came to the restaurant around 8 PM, and since I can't eat a lot during the evening...

We went to fontanella on a friday evening with previous reservation. We had starters and one dish each with beer and paid 78€. The food was excellent and the staff friendly but the service also relatively slow. The tables are also somehow too close together.

We've been coming here a few years and I have resisted reviewing them for fear of letting the secret out; that they're the best, that is! Hidden away in one of the less appealing corners of the city, behind the main promenade 'Keyserlei'. on a quaint square that's lost its appeal to gambling venues, adult dance bars and the accompanying...

If you are ever in Antwerp this is must visit restaurant. If at the weekend or holiday time, booking is a must. It's family run and the food and service are absolutely top notch. But the part is the atmosphere very friendly and cosy.

I've been here already a couple of times and the food was each time very good. Definitely one of the better Italians in the area but slightly more expensive.

Over priced poor quality pizza. The pizza was under cooked. I have had much better food for less price. I would not recommend this place it is a tourist trap.
