  • "If you're looking for a great restaurant in SIC aside from a fish joint, which I also enjoy, then La Fontana Cost is the place to go. It's a good upscale change for dining in SIC."

  • "We have been to La Fontana Coast in Sea Isle many times. Their food is always delicious and their service is excellent. Nice outside seating in the summer, too. Gets packed in the summer so be sure to make a reservation. Was pretty crowded the other night, too, even though it was the off season at the shore (Dec 28th). It seemed less loud this time, too, even though they were crowded. It looked like they put up sound dampening panels on the ceilings and walls which really seemed to help."

  • "Not a lot was available to us for Christmas Eve at the shore, but we found that La Fontana Coast was open and just a short drive from our home (Stone Harbor). Food was very good, wait staff attentive. Appetizers were excellent, entrée portions were a bit large, but yummy. We were not aware that it was BYOB, but they offered us house wine, which was very nice. Would definitely go back, although I am sure in the summer, it must get very crowded!"

  • "Great local restaurant. Food was wonderful. Service was great. Had a terrific time. My mother who has been to Italy said that the Gnooci was better here than any she had ever had."

  • "My boyfriend took me to La Fontana Coast for dinner. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions were generous! The ambience was beautiful and elegant as it was decorated for the holidays. The staff was top-notch and very friendly. We were given complimentary homemade Limoncello with our desserts which we enjoyed very much! La Fontana Coast was an excellent choice my boyfriend made for our romantic evening! We will definitely be coming back here to dine and also recommend this restaurant to our family and friends!!"

  • "This BYOB has become our favorite restaurant in the Cape May/Atlantic County area. The only negative is that it will be closed in January. The staff is attentive and cheerful, food fresh and delicately flavored, the seats are far enough apart that you can hear each other speak and the complimenatary homemade Lemoncello is the icing on the meal. Yum."

  • "We had a wonderful meal with good friends on Friday night. The service is excellent and the food is too, especially the appetizers. We all enjoyed sharing the three appetizers we ordered. The only downside for the evening was that the room we dined in was cold. Next time I will bring a warmer jacket."

  • "Excellent specials, enthusiastic service. We hadn't been there since before the storm but they have recovered nicely."

  • "Good news - only a 15 min wait w/ reservations. Down hill from there - No spring mix for house salad. Husband was served incorrect meal, not the rigatoni special waitress told us about. She claimed she did not say "rigatoni ", but we both heard it. No compensation for error on bill."

  • "Dinner is always delicious at LaFontana Coast. The hosts and servers are all top-notch. My husband had one of the specials on Saturday night. The meat was tender and well seasoned and the pasta was cooked to perfection. My large salad was crisp, cold and fresh. The LaFontana Coast dining room is beautiful, but, despite the carpet and ceiling tiles, it is sometimes noisy. In the warm weather, diners can eat outdoors. We have eaten there with groups and they always manage to serve excellent food to everyone at the table. The Coast in one of our favorite spots."

  • "The food was better than average. The wait staff and hostess were not very warm or welcoming. Maybe just a bad day. Especially liked the bread and the sauce. Overall a good experience and would go back."

  • "This is my new favorite Italian restaurant. They season delightfully not overwhelmingly. Flavors in the mussels with white wine were so delicious I had to sop up the sauce with the fresh crusty bread they serve. Gnocchi with Gorgonzola is rich but fresh as well. Everyone at the table was super satisfied! The complimentary Meloncello was a cool variation on Lemoncello and a great treat."

  • "My family and I have gone to LaFontana Coast many times now and have never been disappointed. We have a couple of picky eaters in our group, who are not easy to please. They absolutely love this restaurant. The menu is varied enough to please everyone. The food itself is very well prepared.....my mouth is watering just thinking about it. The service is fabulous....very attentive but not bothersome. Hands down the best restaurant in Sea Isle."
