We met friends here for dinner as we were passing through Pleasanton. Our drinks were delicious! Gina was our server and the bartender. She was excellent and really knew the menu. We each tried something different. I had the lamb shank and it was out of this world! Fell off the bone! My husband had the Blackberry Salmon and it... More

The service was so bad that nothing else matters. It seemed like there was tension in the room. Perhaps the entire staff had just gotten reamed. This place is going down the tubes fast. I should have read the reviews before we went. My partner ordered a caesar salad. When it arrived it had tomatoes on top. She recoiled in... More

Clint, I'm sorry that you were less than pleased with the service and food that you received while dining at Fontina. Our Caesar salads should never come with tomatoes so if you could please let me know the date and approx time of when you dined I can perhaps speak to the chef that prepared your salad. And as for...

Nothing remotely close to Italian food. Slow, careless service. A prosciutto sandwich with a microscopic portion of prosciutto (of very low quality, by the way). I'll never go back.

Paul, I'm very sorry you were dissatisfied with the service and food you received at Fontina. It is always our goal to provide great service and leave our customers happy with their meal and experience.

What used to be a fine dining experience and a regular go to for a special lunch, is now just a nearly empty dining room where patrons can do business on their cell phone without regard for others. This happened during lunch when a (not so) gentleman in a 3-piece suit near us ordered a small salad and ice water... More

Hello Kenneth/guest, I was not present during this particular situation but I do apologize that you had a less than ideal dining experience. From what I gathered from much of my staff, you also confronted this man while his daughter played games on his cellphone. I did not hear about the speaker phone portion of this incident. Unfortunately, if a... More

Always a welcoming and charming place to eat. The food is first class and freshly cooked. Wait staff are attentive and polite, not intrusive. Great for a family dinner, date or a supper any time.

After reading the positive reviews two of us had dinner at Fontina and were not impressed with the food or the service. My partner ordered the Chicken Gorgonzola but could not finish eating more than half the meal which was just acceptable. I ordered the Lobster Raviolis and they barely had any filling. I could not taste any lobster inside... More

Dined outside, very relaxing, excellent service, perfect spacing between courses. We had the calamari appetizer, 2 house salads, the filet & prawns, the seafood risotto and 2 glasses of La Storia petit syrah ~ no room for dessert😉 Our server was Farhaad, and he was fantastic!

Hello Jennifer, We at Fontina always pride ourselves in providing a good dining experience thru good service, delicious food, and good company. The calamari appetizer is always a GREAT way to start off a meal - it is a very different and, in my opinion, tastier version of the usual calamari that most people are used to having. You chose...
