                      The seafood ala rose was delish! My friend says her chicken piccata was very good. The fried zucchini appetizer was crispy!

                      Fontina Grille was our fallback plan when our plans to eat in downtown DC before a concert, which was postponed, changed. It's a neighborhood favorite, but being Italian-American and having grown up around amazing cooks like my mom and numerous aunts and uncles who produced hearty and delicious homemade meals, I'm less impressed than my non-Italian neighbors. Still, we enjoy the eggplant rolatini and wild mushroom appetizers. We're still a little leery of eating among strangers - most of whom were boisterously unmasked - and we prefer a quieter eating atmosphere, so we turned our order into a takeout and enjoyed those appetizers plus the calamari at home. One note on the fried calamari - while we really love the butter dip that it comes with, the calamari batter itself tends to be too dry.

                      Drinks were not good ordered a pink lemonade and had to send it back and i was still charged for it. Mojito and breezy peach margarita was watered down. Food was just okay. Waitress we had was very nice.

                      Service was very good. The maitre’d even helped us make a path through a very crowded restaurant so my 94 year old mother could use her walker to get to the ladies room. The food was very good too.

                      Came for 10th wedding anniversary, although waiter did offer a free cannoli and wished us a happy anniversary, I felt disappointed. We were seated close to the bathroom and in, what appeared, to be the family section in the back. My first date with my wife was in this restaurant and I'd hope to rekindle the atmosphere we had that day 11 years ago. Overall, it felt like a typical Friday night out at any busy restaurant in Rockville. I should mention that I included a note about my anniversary in the reservation. I've been to other establishments and been greeted with a "congratulations" from the maitre'd soon after I announce my name. So.. meh

                      Food was awesome! Started with Mussels Caprese & Eggplant Rollatina. My family loved everything we ordered - Chicken Chesapeake (w/gluten free penne), Penne ala Vodka, Spaghetti with Meatballs, and Ravioli Rose & Crabmeat. Definitely recommend & will be back!

                      Met friends for lunch and ate on the patio. Crab cake sandwich was good, as was the service. Was quiet due to dining the Saturday before Easter.

                      Ladies room could be much cleaner and son said men’s room was unclean too. Food was really good for most part though red sauce a bit acidic. Such a nice place should have had cleaner bathrooms, esp during Covid. That was surprising.

                      We enjoyed our dinner at Fontina Grille but there were a few variances from excellent. The fried calamari was tasty and the sauces were fine. The calamari was fried a bit too long and was chewy. The eggplant parmesan was very good. The veal scallopini tasted great but, like the calamari, was cooked a little long and was a bit tough. The prices are moderately high but the value was there.

                      Our servers Mo & Marco were wonderful: friendly, professional, attentive, & the food was wonderful. I didn’t think to request a table all the way in the back as one of our dining companions is very hard of hearing and if was very difficult for him to join in the conversation as the noise level was quite high.

                      good choices of traditional Italian food. Disappointed out of a favorite Ruffino Chianti! Had to settle for something less. Prosecco was not as chilled as it should have been. Chicken Piccata was over lemoned.
