should inform customers of costs of specials. It came at quite a surprise. Other than that overall, it was a good meal,but, not get a special. Stick to the menu,you can't go wrong

we have been several times before and in the peak summer always feel like they are rushing us out. I get it - small place and you need the table. So we stopped going in the summer and were going in the off season. Visits were better. went last weekend with a last minute open table reservation - walked in and was seated right away and given menu's - then we did not see the waiter for quite some time - did not know about specials etc. There was a large table set up in the back so once that group started arriving, the rest of the place seemed to be ignored. We finally got the waiter to tell us the specials and we promptly ordered our meal before he walked away. the bus people were fine - water and bread etc. got the food - he dropped it off and turned away - did not bring cheese or a bowl for my shells etc. I had to flag him down. done the meal - waiter never came over to check on us. we finally asked the bus person to get us two coffee's and to tell the waiter we needed our check. IT WAS NOT HIS FAULT! there were only 2 waiters in the whole place trying to service a full room - after our arrival, the rest of the tables filled up and he had all of them and the other waiter was doing the group with two bus people for the rest. That is the fault of management to realize that you have too many guests and not enough staff. the food was great - such a shame that the service always sucks.

We went to LaFontana for New Year's Eve. Our meal was delicious, as usual. It was a little disappointing that the restaurant was somewhat overbooked, as our table was literally right up against the parties next to us on both sides. Luckily the people were very nice and friendly. But we won't let this deter us from returning. The food is always a treat! We have never had a bad meal here.

Once again I really enjoyed the food at La Fontana in Sea Isle. I like that it is a BYOB. Although it was New Years Eve I was pleasantly surprised the food was outstanding as usual.

The only complaints I had is people were packed in like sardines. I know they are trying to make everyone happy but it was crowded and loud. Due to the volume too the service was spotty.

The desserts were exceptional!

First time for us all (14). It seemed that everyone really liked their meal. A little pricey but special. Liked how they seated our large group in a “square” of tables so we all could see each other, rather than one long line of tables. Service was excellent, especially given the size of the group.

My wife & I were there this past Sunday & took advantage of the price fixed menu.
Service & food were both great ...Mussels, eggplant voltini, veal la fontana & the pasta with seafood were all terrific. Meal was well paced & service was excellent. Good value for $35 also
included salad & desert.

The food and services was great however it was way to noisy almost to the point where we could not hear ourselves. Also my friend and I split the bill and we gave the waitress two credit cards, but unfortunately both were charged to my account. She was very nice but I don't think she understood that we wanted to split the bill.

Food was good and staff was informative and friendly. However they seemed very busy and the wait was longer that it should be. Do not know if someone called out or since it is out of season they didn't expect to be so busy.

The Service and Food were nothing special. Thought the entrees were a little pricey with no salad or soup to accompany them. Would go somewhere else next time.
