The food at this restaurant
The food at this restaurant is always good, but I noticed the pasta portions got a little smaller. The server was charming but hard to understand because of a thick Italian accent.

Vacationing with family for 4th of July. Dined with a party of eight. Food was very, very good. Marinara was perfect and I am hard to please. All enjoyed dining experience. Staff are accomodating and pleasant. Will try Rittenhouse Square location as well. BYOB is a plus. Parking easy as well. Menu items are al a carte.

We enjoyed returning to this
We enjoyed returning to this informal Italian seashore restaurant. It is a BYOB restaurant. The spinach salad is tasty. The bread is plain white; ask for olive oil and parmesan cheese instead of butter. The special pasta filled with fig and gorgonzola entrée was superb. We had the fruit sorbet for dessert. The prices are reasonable; the service is attentive.

Every time we come down to
Every time we come down to the shore we come here at least twice while are down. Excellent food and service. Wonderful specials. Love their veal parmigiana. Would recommend to anyone.

The food is consistently delicious. The waitstaff are knowledgable and very patient and friendly. The menu is diverse with many interesting additions. I wish they had meatballs though.

We went for our wedding anniversary and as always we weren't
disappointed. The manager sent over a complimentary
antipasto for us which was a nice treat! We love it here!
Can't wait to return soon!!

Wonderful food and service
Wonderful food and service but a tad expensive for a BYOB. Still highly recommended.

Fig and gorgonzola cheese it was just outstanding. Cant wait to go back
Highly recommended !!

Food was fantastic, only concern was.feeling slightlyrushed to order. Yet our only app took time coming out.
And once we ordererd, never saw waiter till meal came. Delicious food though.

Specials of the night pricing
The food and service are above average for the seashore. But do not order a Special without asking the price.

If you are in OC or Sea Isle, best food you can get and it is a BYOB.

We were a party of seven.
We were a party of seven. Four of us had the red snapper special. The snapper and vegetables were fresh and well-prepared.
The folks ordering pasta enjoyed their meal as well.
I have had dinner here many times in the past and the meals have always been reliable (though not particularly inspiring).
My minor complaints would be that they served milk (instead of half & half) and their desserts were from Bindi (instead of fresh baked from a local bakery).

Enjoyed gourmet food in this delightful restaurant we have been here several times and we are never disappointed with the food or service. We have never eaten outside but it looks great. We ate earlier than usual and the noise was lower than usual because it wasn't packed yet. However, there were more children. Thankfully, a parent took the one crying baby outside. We would recommend the food to anyone.

I was recommended La Fontaine by a friend to take my daughter for her birthday. The Atmosphere was perfect - upscale but casual (I wore a baseball cap). The service was perfect, attentive but we were left alone to eat. Food was great but the tomato sauce was a little sweeter than I prefer. Other than that, perfect! I will be back!

Fabulous Inventive Food!
This is a local and tourist favorite in Strathmere.. My husband and I have loved it for years and the food has always been stellar. The menu has it's scrumptious stand-bys that have been customers favorites from the beginning, but the chef never fails to come up with the most amazing flavor combinations.. a MUST for any foodie!

Always a delight to dine at LaFontana! Consistently good, over the years.

Enjoyed by Everyone
We had three generations at the table, and everyone enjoyed the meal from apps to dessert. We took a tip from people who frequent the restaurant and ordered a pasta dish to share family style, which was a great idea because none of us had pasta as an entree, and having a little penne as a side dish to our seafood was perfect. Our waiter was very nice. I'm sure we will go back again.

Great BYOB hidden in Strathmere
Easy to park, greeted right away and all seats have room. Great to be able to have a conversation without speaking loudly. The food is fresh and spiced just right.
So many Italian restaurants complicate their dishes, not here. Simply delicious!

great byob at shore
Upon arriving for our 7 pm reservation we were immediately seated. all three in our group throughly enjoyed our meals of osso bucco, red snapper and seafood medley over pasta. The first two were specials that night. Although the meal was not inexpensive, it was worth it especially when you consider normal prices for dinner at the beach. The added bonus is that it is a byob. We will definitely return.

Great place to find a bite to eat that is not your standard beach fare.

worth the wait
We had to wait an hour after our reservation to be seated and they were out of the vegetable lasagna which I ordered. The hostess brought glasses outside and opened bottles so we could have some wine while waiting for our table. We were treating our friends who had not been there before. As always, the food was superb and the service was excellent. We had clams, pasta, risotto, and two people ordered a veal special, which they really enjoyed. Despite the long wait, La Fontana did not disappoint. We always enjoy our meals there.

It was a slow night, only
It was a slow night, only about 6 other tables. They were very accommodating for my vegan husband. I'm not sure they would have been on a busy night. Food was good. Service was good except they didn't give us our 20% off as advertised on the sign out front. It read 20% off total bill for diners between 4-6:00pm. We were seated at 5:20 and got our check at 6:30. After bringing it to the waiters attention we received the discount. Would return to this restaurant.

Always a great meal
My family and friends love La Fontana Del Mare. We were seated immediately upon arrival. The waiter, whose name escapes me, from Albania, answered all questions and was very helpful to those undecided when choosing their meal. Gnocchi Sorrentino is out of this world. We always have a delicious meal.

We ate at La Fontana in Strathmere this past Friday. The food and service were very good. Nice to BYOB. The place was still quite crowded even though the beach resort streets are empty now. Everyone down here must be at La Fontana for dinner!
