Diner Reviews
  • "I've been going to Fontana's for over 20 years. I have never had a bad meal there. Service is superb. Chelsea runs a tight ship. I can recommend this restaurant highly enough."

  • "The food was ok (I've had better steaks in many places), the place was crowded (Friday night) and loud. The waiter was friendly, but we waited like 15 minutes for our order to be taken — I guess the same Friday night problem."

  • "We thought we were dining a bit too early to make the 8pm start of an event at the Flint Center but when we arrived at 5:15 there was hardly a table empty. It seems that the whole restaurant was going to the Flint Center! The great news is that even though the restaurant was packed with people on a tight schedule, we had delicious food prepared perfectly and our server was fantastic. Fontana's passed every test with 5 stars. I had the gnocchi with a basil sauce topped with sea scallops - it could not have been better."
    Dined on 3/27/2014
  • "The lamb was 80% fat and the mashed potatoes were extremely watery. The gorgonzola salad seemed to have no gorgonzola in it. This place has really gone downhill since we ate there last year. We will not go again"

  • "We could get better quality food and larger portions for half the price at Cheesecake Factory. $90 meal tip included at Fantana's would have cost $45 tip included at Cheesecake. We were still knida hungry leaving Fontana's. You shouldn't leave an Italian restaurant hungry...."

  • "I was first-timer when I used this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. The restaurant itself is formal, everything seems so fancy. The food is excellent. And they are well-prepared with good wine. All customers are in formal outfit, but you can enjoy casual conversation there. All things there remind me of time spent in Italy. The restaurant serves unique tastes though. Overall, the price can be put somewhere between moderate to cheap, compared to its food quality and service, and the atmosphere. If you plan to invite someone very important or your girlfriend, this is the restaurant for you!"

  • "Enjoy having dinner at Fontana's. The food is well prepared and the choices, though not extensive, has a nice range."

  • "I booked fontana's for my prom night along with 9 other people. When we got there, we got seated immediately and the service was fast and efficient. With 10 people, it was amazing that we finished dinner in an hour, and the setting was fine for special occasion; it wasn't weird that we were wearing prom dresses there. Definitely recommend this restaurant!"

  • "The restaurant never disappoints with their newer menu and fresh food choices. I can't recall ever having something I didn't like. Also the service is commendable. The servers are always polite and attentive."

  • "Kind of a go to for last minute reservations on Saturday night. It's close by and convenient. Busy, but not crowded. Waiter and hostess were very nice and attentive. Food was good. Calamari is good, my pasta was a little overcooked, but my wife loved the pesto gnocchi she ordered."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Food and ambiance great. We are repeat customers. But, what is with all the young, immature staff? All very "too sweet" with their greeting and when talking to you. Talk down to you like you are a child. Saturday night was the first time this happened to the degree that it was totally uncomfortable. The staff needs to be friendly but act more maturely. And stop with the "we." "How are WE all doing." "Do WE know what WE want to order yet?" And this goes for both of the hostesses at the front desk. They were over the top with condescending sweetness."

  • "I have been to this restaurant several times and always had good service and good food. This time however it was disappointing. The food was great but the person who took our orders had to be asked if there were any day's specials (there always are) and only after that did she tell us about them. Even then she had to keep reading off her notes. My husband didn't see any fish on the menu and when he asked her about it she said "yes we have salmon on demand"!!!! This is ridiculous since how would a customer think to ask unless the restaurant server tells him/her about it? We will go back again and hope that this visit was a one time issue. Maybe she was new - her attitude was fine but she just wasn't up to the task."

  • "Fontanas is completely unassuming in it's location (next to office supply store) but hey, since you've been doing this for so long everyone's coming anyway. The restaurant is huge and we made a reservation for 5:30pm on a Monday. Amazingly the restaurant was 1/3 full at 5:30?? Within 60 minutes it was completely full...ON A MONDAY! Needless to say this is family owned and operated restaurant for over 30 years so everything they do is quality from the hand made pasta to capturing a huge selection of wines from around the world. The bread, brushcetta, Verde salad and italian garlic oil arrived and was delicious! The capellini astice (Maine Lobster with pasta and cream sauce), gnocchi and Penne were off the charts. Best dessert menu EVER! A++"

  • "We were there to celebrate my son's engagement with his 88 year old grandfather. We reserved the fireplace table adding extra warmth and ambiance to the setting (not to mention keeping my father warm enough). Everything from the hostess to dessert was wonderful. Our Waiter, James, was always on top of things. It was a very special evening, made even more special by a wonderful dinner and a great bottle of wine. We frequently like coming to Fontana's for special occasions."

  • "I like Fontana's. It is delightful. I enjoyed the linguine and clams and the apple strudel with Carmel sauce and gelato was heavenly."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "I love this restaurant. I live nearby and always defer to Fontana's for any occasion - a night at the Flint Center, friends in town, I don't want to cook night - I always get a good meal and the staff is always pleasant and attentive."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Great pasta dishes. The sauce amounts were perfect! Definitely coming back."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We have been dining at Fontana's for years and have never been unhappy with either the food or the service. The pricing is a little upscale but worth it for special occasions and periodic dining. Waitstaff has always been accommodating and pleasant."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We had a wonderful post-Valentine dinner (15th instead of 14th.) But I think a lot of people had the same idea! AT 5:30 the place was pretty full. But that says a lot about one of our favorite restaurants! Entrees, salad and desserts were great, as usual. Our waitress was busy, yet we always got the service we needed. A waiter that has waited on us for years even stopped by to say hello (it wasn't his table that night, but we were happy to see him!) If you like Italian and great service, Fontana's is a must."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I was there for valentines day with my wife, the food was very good, the service was great, and the reason I gave it a good only is because the sitting was to close to the other tables on both sides. This could be because of the occasion and they where trying to accommodate a lot of people. I will go back again and will see how close we will be to the other guests. Tecate4man"

  • "We had a nice time, our first at Fontana's. We actually had a 4pm reservation, so parking was a breeze, The restaurant was not crowded yet, and we got great and enjoyable service. We were relaxed and unhurried and when we finished the crowds were just starting to arrive. The best part was our evening was still young. We will try early reservations at our other favorite spots."

  • "This was my 1st visit and my expectations were set mildly high, but nonetheless was very impressed with all aspects of this Restaurant. I had the Calamari, Lobster Bisque soup & Prime Rib and all were perfectly prepared. I highly recommend this restaurant and obviously this won't be my last visit and I look forward to coming back and trying something new..."

  • "My partner and I came here on a Fri night. We had a 7:30p reservation and arrived 1/2 hour early; they seated us immediately by the fireplace! Service was very attentive, from the hostess to the entire wait staff. The waitress appeared well versed with the menu items and made sound recommendations. I had the Shrimp Scampi and my dining partner had wild mushroom raviolis. Both dishes were delightfully made with fresh ingredients and not overwhelmed by sauces. Following our entrees, we couldn't resist sharing a Bocce Ball drenched with vanilla gelato. This is one of the finer Italian restaurants in the area. Based on food quality, menu selection, ambience, and service, it is definitely worth coming back, both for intimate or business dining."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "We've been going to Fontana's for years. The food is a bit pricey, but it's always been consistent. I don't order wine there because they don't appear to store it at the right temp. This meal was superior to anything we had in quite a while. Everyone ordered a pasta and we brought our own wine. We also ordered a salad and dessert to share. Everyone was pleased with what they ordered. We will go back again."

  • "We have been to this restaurant many times and love the food/atmosphere. I had made reservations for the 6 of us at a round table and that was great. But I'm sorry to say that the server was rushing us thru drinks, dinner decisions and dessert? Not sure why because it wasn't that busy and we weren't taking our time by any means. This was a business dinner and our guest said that they also felt rushed."

  • "We had early dinner reservations since I had made them last minute. The food is always great at Fontana's, and since we have been coming there for many years, we know several of the wait staff. Sandy is our favorite. They had a special NYE menu and we both chose off of that and enjoyed our selections, along with the Zabaglione that we had for dessert! By the time we left, there was quite a crowd, both in the dining room and waiting for tables. Our experience here was excellent!"

  • "The entire experience at Fontana's was wonderful. We were seated promptly, our waiter arrived shortly after we were seated, he gave us a moment to look at the menu and returned soon with water and took our drink and appetizer order. He left to place the order and came back just after we put our menus down and took our main order. He made a great suggestion (skirt steak), and was very attentive throughout our meal. We couldn't have been more pleased with the service and the food."
