About

La Fontana Del Mare was first opened in 1998 by Bujar Daku, the head chef and Gani Daku. It is a landmark restaurant, only a block away in small town Strathmere (midway between Sea Isle City and Ocean City). It is a place where diners by the sea can get a splendid taste of Italian from the City of Brotherly Love in a round-about way. The restaurant offers adjusted menus for all kind of diets, therefore making the place open to everyone. We are also accessible to those with disabilities fulfilling the ADA requirements.

As usual, the servers were pleasant and the food outstanding. We shared a salad- portions are ample! The seafood pasta special was yummy and we took home enough for lunch the next day.

I like La Fontana. Food is always very good, however they don't take reservations very serious. Go here on an off night. Its a great value with BYOB so its always crowded. So don't be in a hurry.

Although located off the beaten path and somewhat out of season, La Fontana was packed on a gorgeous Saturday night. Providing both indoor / outdoor seating , a robust menu and 5 star food , La Fontana gives patrons a consistent delightful meal on every visit. Inside seating at this BYOB can be a bit noisy so opt for outside (covered) if the weather permits.

Nice restaurant for the shore area. A little pricey. The nice part is that it is a BYO.

Very pleasant dining experience, variety of choice 's pasta, meat & fish. It's a BYOB which I love! It's not open all year around so try it before they close for the season.

First time there. Had 7:45pm reservations and weren't taken until 8:30. Noticed some people didn't have reservations and seemed they were being taken before ones with reservations!!
