The meal is always excellent. Last night the place was insane! Extremely noisy, people on top of one another, and very uncomfortable.
Missed items ordered, your typical summer experience.

The food was delicious. We were extremely disappointed in the fact that they had an early dinner special but either all members had to do the special or no one could do it. We considered making it clear how stupid this rule was by asking that 4 of our 7 be moved to a separate table so that they could enjoy the special. There was also a bad storm during our dinner and the ceiling leaked. Some of the water dripped into one of our dishes. They took the meal off the bill but I felt that they should have also remade the meal. My daughter left still hungry and ended up making something at home. The food was very good but we most likely will not be going back based upon our first experience.

Love this place! The pasta pomodoro, gnocchi, veal chop and scallop appetizer were absolutely delish. We come back every summer. And now they have a pizza place across the street. Can't wait to try it!

We had a reservation but still had to wait 40 minutes. Other than that, no complaints. The food was beyond great. Good service as well. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

The food was amazing and the service was excellent. Unfortunately, the restaurant was so over booked that even though we had a reservation, my girlfriend and I ended up waiting almost an hour for our table.

Amazing! Every time we go there, we are very pleased with the service and the food was delightful! We ordered risotto scampi, bronzino, and fried calamari. The next day, we also visited the Fratellis pizza next to the restaurant ! The oven pizzas with a thin crust were really good and everything had a very Italian taste. Best restaurant and pizza in the Isle!

I made a reservation at La Fontana Coast to dine with my family and we left very happy! We had the gnochi gorgonzola, rissotto pescatore and vitelo fontana which was cooked very well! The food was very delicious and we ended the night with cannolis and home made tiramisu! Cant wait to go back again!

Have dined here and at the other Fontana Restaurants many times. As always, the food was very good..we had 2 veal dishes, a fish entree and a pasta entree.Everyone was pleased. As important as the food, is the treatment you receive from the staff and particularly the owner. If he recognizes you as a regular customer, he will make you feel very welcome and let you know he appreciates your patronage.
The only suggestion would be to ask the price of the specials as they can be quite pricey.

We were at La Fontana Coast and La Fontana Del Mare and it was amazing! Their staff as always is very welcoming and we had homemade fettucini with sea food and the veal fontana! It was very delicious, and cannot wait to try the other location in Avalon! Dinning outdoors at La Fontana Coast is a must for summer during the evening. Best restaurant in Sea Isle!

We were very disappointed with the entire experience ar this restaurant. Having been there before, we expected a higher level of service, better quality & presentation of our appetizers & main entree. The noise level was deafening, the service was slow & the food not worth the wait.
