Diner Reviews
  • "I have been to Fontana's 4X in the past 2 weeks. Each time, the food was consistently excellent! This time, I brought my grandchildren and daughter, and the service was superb! The waiter brought extra plates, water, milk, for the children; and they were flattered that he treated them in a very adult manner. Of course, the apple strudel with caramel sauce and creamy ice cream at the end of the meal was tops...the best dessert in Silicon Valley!!! The warm foccaccia was a very nice beginning to a delicious lunch too! Delicious from beginning to end!!!"

  • "Took hubby out for dinner. I go here often for lunch & occasional dinner with friends, but he has refused to go because he found hostess & waiters pretentious. We live in Cupertino where there are few nice restaurants so I wanted him to try again. I got the table I requested. Hostess was friendly while seating us. Mushroom ravioli: pronounced best ever, actually tasted like mushrooms, served on a bed of spinach. Added a shrimp topper - a bit overcooked. Roasted chicken: preferred their rotisserie chicken to the roasted, sauce generous but too herb forward, roasted potatoes needed to have crisp exteriors, generous side of asparagus, still enjoyed it. Waitress pleasant and on top of it all. Hubby will return! Good meal, minor dings."

  • "I make reservations for lunch at Fontana's frequently for our ladies group. This time, we each ordered a different entree and one salad to be enjoyed "family style". And what a feast it was!!! The salad with sea scallops was the best salad I've enjoyed at any restaurant. The clam linguine has always been our favorite repeat order. The crab polenta and grilled prawns can only be found at Fontana's.. The apple streudel is another one of our repeat favorites...it's huge! The pastry is crisp, the caramel sauce is divine and all is served with a scoop of creamy ice cream. We celebrated 2 ladies' birthdays and the restaurant gave us 2 extra scoops of ice cream with candles!!! The waiter was super too..very accommodating!!!"

  • "Fontana's is an Italian restaurant with a good balance between traditional Italian fare and typical American foods. We split this combination ordering a rib eye steak and the lasagna with meat sauce. The rib eye was cooked exactly as requested. In contrast to many restaurants that believe a steak is merely grilled and served relying on the customer to add 'steak sauce' (yuk), this steak was seasoned very well. The lasagna was cooked perfectly and was very flavorful. They include Pecorino cheese which I really like in a lasagna and the meat sauce was well-balanced (not too much meat and a nice compliment of tomato sauce). They have a good wine list with selections to match one's likes and budget. This was a very good dining experience!"

  • "Went for Father's Day dinner. We were handed 3 copier paper menus with no prices and one regular menu to share. We were confused .... was it a price fixed meal for the dinner and if so, how much? Were these specials for the night and if so how much. After waiting a while we flagged down a waitress and asked.....they are specials and she gave us the prices verbally. I then got up and asked the hostess for more menus. When the waiter finally got to us we ordered off the main menu and we all enjoyed our meals. So, printed specials is an interesting idea. But copier paper? No prices? No mention that they are specials for Fathers Day? Awkward."

  • "The ambiance was excellent, but the server immediately formed an opinion of my party and treated us very differently from other patio table groups. It was largely noticeable. The food was overcooked and the clams/ noodles were almost dried up."

  • "I highly recommend Fontana's Italian Restaurant. The service is great, and the food is outstanding. It is a perfect atmosphere for either a date, or a group get-together. They have a very nice outdoor patio dining area also!"

  • "The food was outstanding and the portion size just right. The service was a little slow, maybe, due to too few staff. The mgr. gave us free dessert following two attempts where it was cold and then burnt. The third time was the charm. Our table was cozy and the ambience lovely. Gluten-free options on the menu were much appreciated. Two out of my party of 6 were gluten-free."

  • "A good place to enjoy a meal before or after another outing - movie, concert, shopping? A tasty, varied menu, tasty with great bread. We had a very attentive waiter, who catered to the small favors like extra sauce with the Linguini with Clams. Only downside for me was the pulverized parmesan cheese for the pasta. A place as nice as Fontana's should invest in something authentically shredded. I would definitely recommend Fontana's for Italian cuisine."

  • "The restaurant is pretty and the staff were especially friendly and attentive. Wait time for our meal was quite long, despite it being early and uncrowded. The food looked good at presentation, but was just O.K. on taste. The pasta dish was not cooked enough(more than al dente) and was a bit too generous with the oil. Our pizza looked good, but again, on execution revealed dough that had not been fully cooked. "

  • "Had a wonderful dinner with my two nephews. Two of us had the 4 cheese lasagna, which was deliciously floating in a flavorful meat sauce. The third had a lobster pizza - perfectly cooked with a crisp crust and ample ingredients. No matter how many times I visit here, the food and service are consistently good. The waiter was helpful and attentive, but a bit curt. "

  • "This is one restaurant that consistently offers excellence in all areas.....beautifully prepared food, excellent service, attractive and cozy ambience, with a reasonable price tag. Our experience at this restaurant has always been exceptional. And there is the option of sitting at the bar to watch the cook staff create...it's an opportunity for "dinner and a show". We can't wait to return!"

  • "We love Fontana's and often reserve it for special family events because of the food and the ambiance. It is always on the top of our list for special occasions. However, I was disappointed in the quality of our Easter dinner. My husband and I both ordered the bacon wrapped pork tendereloin which I felt a bit overdone and consequently too dry. Another guest ordered spaghetti and meatballs which she felt was too spicy. The 7 of us felt it was a lovely evening, but I was disappointed with the food on this occasion. :("

  • "Tried Fontana's for lunch last week and was pleasantly surprised. There were two of us for lunch. I made reservations, but they were not necessary. We were seated right away. The service was excellent from the start. We both ordered their crab melt with salad. They brought warm bread and a pest oil for dipping. Delicious! Our lunch arrived fairly quickly and both the open-faced sandwich and salad were wonderful. The amount of food was plentiful. Neither one of us finished our sandwich. "
