    Very disappointed in the food. Husband ordered the Carbonara with a side of Italian sausage. They chopped up the sausage and put it in the carbonara. The sausage was very dry. Some of the food was cold. Even more disappointed that the menu is 30% higher than listed on open table. Would not return.

    Very disappointing, the octopus was over cooked, the lobster on the special was not good. The quality expected for the meal price was terrible. Not my first time there but it will be my last.

    Very accommodating hostesses. They might want to invest in a temporary vestibule for the winter. Every time the door opened several tables were hit with a burst of cold air. Tables were jammed in at places. Fortunately, the folks we sat next to were lovely as we were essentially dining with them. Service was intermittent. Our server simply had too many tables. Once our meals were delivered, we never saw our server again until the bill came. No opportunity to as for a refill, more water, or bread. This is overpriced mediocrity.

    Way too crowded and extremely noisy. Felt like they packed more tables in than usual. Table was by the door so every time someone entered the restaurant you felt the cold. It’s a sin as the food came out quickly and was very good.

    2 Excellent and ample servings of La Fontana's Chicken Fantasia for my wife and I were delicious. Our server was attentive and checked back to our table frequently. The owner and hostess were very cordial and polite. We will definitely be back soon. Don't Forget it is a BYOB restaurant.

    Our normal go-to is La Fontana in Strathmere, NJ but being closed for the season we decided to try the Sea Isle location. Outstanding! Gnocchi in Sorrentino Sauce - little pillows with just the right amount of sauce. Veal chop was huge, a large portion came home with us. The arugula, pear, and goat cheese salad on special was excellent. A bit noisy but we were seated in a corner by the window so the noise level didn't affect us.

    LaFontana Coast has a nice ambiance and really good service. All the servers were very cordial, professional, and fun to talk to. The best thing about this place is the food. The most delicious dishes are usually on the daily or special menu. The veal dishes are outstanding. Two members of our party had the veal francais, one had the salmon, and I had the veal chop. All of the dishes were excellent. Two of us had cappichio and tiramisu, and it certainly finished off the meal. BYOB instead of full bar was the only downside, but they supply the glasses, ice, and bucket if necessary. Seating is a little close but in the winter, it's nice to talk to the guests around you - nice cozy bonding! Adds to the fun and atmosphere! Takes reservations and open table. That's a nice treat at anytime.

    This continues to be a very good place for a nice dinner in Sea Isle. However, the prices of the entrees and appetizers are starting to be unaffordable. I realize that good food and quality ingredients cost more, but at some point the costs need to be reigned in.
