We've been going for years and always have a great time. The food is great and the service is warm and friendly. While prices aren't a bargain, the fact that it is BYOB keeps the total bill reasonable. My wife and kids are allergic to gluten and they always have gluten free pasta and other gluten free options. Bottom line is we always look forward to it and always leave happy.

As always a wonderful dining experience. Love the BYO option, and the food once again didn't disappoint. Tables were crammed together very tightly which made conversation difficult at times. We have had same charming waitor each time prior, but this night had a rather disinterested waitress that seemed to want to go home and not deal with MDW crowds. We will always come back though!

Very expensive salad at 8.95 is way too much. My crab and linguine taste like capers more than crab sausage.

La Fontana Coast was a great restaurant. Food was good and so was the service.
Being one of the best restaurants in Sea Isle City - it was packed.
However the goal to get as many people served took away for the atmosphere more like a cafeteria vs. a fine Italian Restaurant. But a must restaurant for your shore visit.

I've been a resident of the Cape May Point area for 30 years and don't venture as far as Sea Isle usually. Meeting friends that lived closer I found La Fontana on Open Table and decided to try it. We went pre season on a week night and it wasn't too crowded. We ate outside and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. I had a bronzino filet with artichokes that was delicious and my husband had a pasta special stuffed with crab and in a saffron sauce. His was fabulous. It's worth a try. It's BYOB which I always love!

This restaurant has excellent Italian food and is located on Landis Ave. in Sea Isle City. Forget the bad reviews and go for an early dinner. You'll enjoy the atmosphere and the service is very attentive.

Our family had Easter Dinner here and all 8 of us loved each bite! The service is exceptional, unhurried and make you feel special.
Their pasta is the most fresh I've ever tasted each menu item is perfectly seasoned!

Consistency is key to the success of any restaurant and both La Fontana's have that (shore restaurants). We decided to come back after a good experience in March for my daughters birthday and were there for Easter Saturday this year. Great all around - surprised they didn't have meatballs though - however the kids still loved it. We look forward to the summer with you and will see you soon!

Loved the food, would recommend it to all my friends. My favorite dish was the gnocchi and I loved the homemade gelato. The atmosphere was super nice and the service was as good.

My husband swears he had the best meal of his life...the shrimp scampi. My gnocchi were delicious and the calamari were tender and light. Definitely try it, so delicious!
