La Fontana Del Mare
Great meal as always.
What an amazing dinner and such great service.Perfect night.
If you are a true Italian you will hate this place! Our ancestors are turning over in there graves! Stay home and cook yourself and save on the way over priced food!
We love this place! Wonderful food and service! We got engaged there and love to keep the memory going!
Unbelievable... It is so good
Amazing food can’t get better Italian food than here at the shore
love the byob. the ambiance of the restaurant is great. friendly and wait staff was fantastic
We have dined here twice thus far this summer and experience was very very good. Our waiter both times was Iglee who was excellent
Good food, very nice service, great location. Staff is very friendly, good selection of specials.
Had a reservation at 8:30 for 6, seated outside immediately. We ordered the fried mozzarella, fried calamari and caprese appetizers. All were delicious. Thought the fried mozzarella was amazing with the sauce. My wife and I split one of the risottos and veal Parmesan. Both were very good. We ended with tiramisu and a cannoli...fantastic. Our waiter was great. During our dinner a crazy thunderstorm rolled through and one of the blinds would not go down. He offered us another table immediately. Some of the bad reviews mention service and not being seated immediately. It is a byob in a shore down. It is very unpredictable how long some people will stay to enjoy beverages and it is always packed. You are at the beach...relax and enjoy.
The service for being seated was quick, however the tables were squeezed into a room which made me feel as if I was sitting on top of another party. The food was delicious but for portion relative to price, its about $3-$8 overpriced per plate.
Consistently overbook! Waited one hour with a reservation that was held with my credit card, that’s the last time I’ll go, the food is not worth the wait!
Wait staff overwhelmed. Not enough space to more around comfortably. Outside dining groups too large and too close together it was very difficult to get to the reservation desk.
Fantastic food great place to have a very nice dinner with friends.
Excellent service and great food. In sleepy Strathmere/ no views but you can count on a great meal!
Soup was only just warm. Clams and pasta not a great value for price charged. Waitress messed up final pay attempted to split the bill when she did not see the gift card used for final pay along with one credit card for balance..
delicious I had the artichoke appetizer it was delicious! My entree was the chicken saltimbucca, the service was terrific
Outstanding food, service and setting. Always friendly wait staff, with consistent attention to detail. Warmly greeted by the owners and everyone makes us feel right at home!
Service, food and caring about our satisfaction is what guaranteed our return. Not a single complaint!
Everyone had a wonderful time. Several in the party ordered the Lobster Ravioli special & it was delicious. The Scampi Risotto was a stand-out. La Fontana's version of mozzarella sticks with a pesto based sauce was was amazingly good. The calamari could have been a bit crispier.
The server, who was excellent, recommended the Tiramisu for dessert. She said it was her favorite and the most popular dessert at the restaurant. We certainly could understand why - it was the best Tiramisu I ever had.
This is my “go to” place when I’m down the shore because it never disappoints. The wait staff are warm,friendly and efficient. I ‘ve tasted almost every item on the regular menu and the “daily specials” are always a wonderful new combination of flavors. I always recommend making reservations
Great meal great service very friendly staff
Food always good. Service good. We eat here multiple times during the spring and fall. Always enjoy our meals.
Reservation management was a challenge. Seating was 20 minutes after the reserved time for 2 - service was painfully slow - an hoir for meals to be presented from order - food was good but not exceptional. Best you will do at the shore despite the shortcomings.
As always delicious food and great ambience
Server was great and food was excellent. Didn’t realize it was a BYO. Next time we will bring booze.
Always good food and atmosphere. Staff attentive. Would recommend.
We have dined at Fontana for many years . The halibut special served with capers and tomatoes over pasta was outstanding. Price was a little high yet well worth the cost.
Great meal! They never disappoint.
Excellent overall value for seashore resort dining. Menu was comprehensive and the food was very good. Highly recommend it.
Incredibly noisy. Could not hear our fellow dinner guests. Meal was rushed by servers. Very disappointed.
I would recommend that the restaurant slows down its service a bit. I understand that it gets very crowded this time of year but I was there with company and as soon as the salads came, so did our entrees. The feeling was that we were bring 'rushed' out of the restaurant. Also, we were advised that there was a salad 'special' that evening and I ordered the arugula salad special. I was surprised to see the salad cost $17 dollars each. I think the server should have mentioned the cost of the salary if it were going to be twice the cost of a regular arugula salad.
The food here is always excellent and the service is impeccable. We enjoy coming to this restaurant and the one in Sea Isle very much.
We sat outside on a beautiful night and had a great meal. The veal parm was outstanding and highly reccomend it! Service was great, it’s BYOB so stop by the Deauville across the street and grab a bottle of wine to compliment your meal.
Langostinos excellent. Gnocchi Gorgonzola excellent.
Waiitng to be seated was a bit chaotic but once seated service and food were incredible.
Party of 6. 2 hot apps served cold, 2 apps incorrect and 1 not delivered. This process took 45 min. No resolution - so we left. Have been there in the past and the food was good.
Great waitstaff, very knowledgeable and attentive, but not too much.
Food was great, service quite slow, extremely noisy- would request to sit outside next time.
