La Fontana Del Mare
Great food. Very pleasant wait staff. Severe overbooking of people this weekend (before Memorial Day)!
Our server Iglee was great
Service was beyond expectation
Price for specials was somewhat high
We both enjoyed the “specials”. The short ribs and pappardelle was excellent
Food and service was good. There was a musty smell that wasn’t there the last time I visited the restaurant
This was our first time dining here. Everyone was very friendly and the service was outstanding! The food was delicious, we had the fried mozzarella, salad and a sausage, pepper and onion dish which was a special that night. All the appetizers were great! Then we had grilled calamari and I had my favorite veal parmigiana which was really good. Price wasn’t too bad either. We will definitely go back !!
Awesome! Always a great meal!
It was great coming back after a long Winter. We are looking forward to many meals there this Summer.
Food and service were great
My family goes to the La Fontana restaurants often because we vacation in the area and the food is always good. The service is lacking. Whether we went for dinner on the off season or in Mid-July or August, we always had to wait upwards of 20 minutes to be seated even though we had reservations and arrived on time. Our waitstaff never returned timely with drinks or to check on the table after dinner was served. My family and I will continue to go here because the atmosphere is nice and the quality of the food is good.
A little bit disappointed this time. Had a group of 8, one celebrating a birthday. I reminded the restaurant about the birthday earlier in the day, but it was never passed on to our server, who by the way wasn’t in a very good mood. But it was busy. The food was good though. I usually go to the othe location in Sea Isle which seems more organized. Still would recommend.
Very very expensive for pasta!!! Salad special consisting of arugula, beets, melon and a slice of pancetta was $20!!!! Very overpriced!!!
This restaurant came highly recommended but we were very disappointed.
Our meal this past Saturday night was really good. The service was excellent, very friendly staff. We would definitely eat here again.
The best veal you could cut it with a fork.
Angle hair pasta was the best had to be home made.
Terrific food!! Innovative and authentic. Special lobster ravioli with huge knuckles of crabmeat and a delicious sauce. The fresh Jersey mozzarella salad had basil, fresh cantaloupe and prosciutto with balsamic glaze.
Great food the pasta it was a very fresh i be back
Always a great meal here! One of our fave spots at the shore!
My husband and I had a very delicious dinner tomight. My only complaint is that it is very noisy.
We visit this restaurant once a year during our annual trip to Ocean City. It never disappoints and serves the best fried calamari. We’ll be back.
The food was very good but the service was poor. Once we got a waitress, after sitting for a while, she seemed attentive at first but after we got our food, we didn’t see her again until we asked someone else for the check. We had to ask others to fill our water, get us a dessert menu, and get us leftover containers. We really thought she had left. We sat outside and it was very tight and loud.
Flavorful & fun seafood focused Italian, BYOB. Sophisticated yet laid back ambience for beach-y outdoor dining with family & friends. Delicious salads & pasta dishes, capturing the best of the season. Friendly & attentive staff.
First time there. The place was very nice. Entrees were very good for the money. The Antipasto was not so great. Only had a couple pieces of cheese and 1 kind of meat. The rest was fillers of cucumber and beats which could not be in an antipasto at all. Bacon wrapped Scallops were small and very pricey.
I always love LaFontana and look forward to going every summer.
We had the salad special of tomato, mozzarella cheese, cantaloupe and prosciutto and it was delicious.
The prices, however, seem to be climbing as everything is a la carte.
Everything was excellent. Will definitely return. We sat inside but porch was nicely shaded and very very clean.
The new menu looks awesome! As always, service was awesome, food was prompt and delicious!
The prices were high compaired to what you received. Entrees were all ala carte.
There was too much gravy on the veal special.
First time at la fontana del mar, the food and service was great. The patio outside is amazing, definitely coming back !
Excellent food. Outside seating. Byob
Never disappoints! Excellent food service and ambiance. Have frequented this Gem of a restaurant for 20+ years
Menu was very similar to the restaurant in Sea Isle City. Food was good and didn't feel as crowded as we do at the other restaurant. Noise level was as advertised, loud. Service was fine. I also read on previous reviews not to put your fork down or staff would pounce. That was true. Would go back. Parking was a minor issue.
Always enjoy the food and service, they always have a wonderful menu!
Food and service are always wonderful. They honored our request on our Open Table reservation for a particular table.
The linguini in the pescatore was cooked perfectly. Great meal.
Love Todd and Angela.
Loved the outdoor dining space. Definitely puts this restaurant up on my list. It used to be very crowded inside. Three at the table had veal and all said were excellent. I had the seafood risotto, which was sort of bland. Would have liked a more interesting sauce.
The food was delicious. The specials and the menu offers excellent variety. Our negative was it was loud.
The noise level of conversation of surrounding tables and the loud air conditioning fan made conversation difficult and the meal was not relaxing.
Had a great family meal during our vacation. Everything was delicious. We loved the specials.
Very nice dinner. Outside was very quiet except for the speaker over our heads.
Great food. Little noisy. Service a bit slow but attentive
Service was slow. Not enough staff. Food was outstanding. Specials were very expensive.
