Romaine lettuce with Caesar dressing
Home made lobster ravioli cooked in pink vodka sauce, shrimp and spinach
Fettuccine pasta with alfredo sauce
Ceasar salad was swimming in dressing, SERVED stale bread, spaghetti was noodles WITH a mixture of ragu and prego
The food was just ok. Didn’t taste like homemade pasta. Bland.
Amazing food and service. A must try
Had a nice outdoor dinner at this local Italian place. Heater made it pleasant. Big menu with nice variety. One criticism my husband and I both had was that our meals were under-seasoned. Other than that, pretty good.
Great experience with amazing friends and food!
The food is delicious and the portions are generous! Will definitely be going back again!
It seems this restaurant overbooked tables. My party of 4 waited about 40 minutes past our reservation to be seated and have a server come to our table. We had to hunt someone down to serve us as it seems we were forgotten about. Once they had realized their mistake, the food and overall experience was quite nice.
First time to dine here and had a great experience. We were about 10 minutes late but they still sat us quickly despite the long line outside. We were given one of their cabins for two with our own heater. Nice! Our server was great! He knew the menu pretty well and he was nice. My bf wanted to come back the following night because he liked the place very much. He ordered the special veal with the gnocchi. Perfectly done! The gnocchi was tasty and the veal was done how he ordered, medium. I ordered the vongole and it was good. To be honest, I have had better Vongole but I won’t let that deter me from coming back to this place. The whole experience is just wonderful that i would recommend people to come visit this place. Oh and it BYOB. :)
Great food and ambiance, I would highly recommend it
Fantastic food, very authentic, nice staff
The veal shop with the gorgonzola gnocchi was unbelievably delicious!
They do it right. Not pretentious. Tasty, good portions, byo
Arrived late to reservation and was greeting very nicely and they were able to accommodate without question. Sat outdoors in a street cabin that was well heated. Staff was very friendly and attentive. Attended on NYE and set 4-course menu was served. Everything tasted great and very reasonably portioned.
Went for NYE and the pre-fixe menu was great. the trio of pastas was the best! The gnocchi was the best I've had and the ravioli was perfect! I got the risotto primavera for my 3rd course and it was just ok - just seemed like it was missing something but the flavor was still really good and the quality was great! I love going to restaurants and seeing all of the staff chip in to refill water, refill bread baskets, clear plates, etc. and they did this perfectly here! We never had to wait for anything.
We went for the New Years meal. 75 bucks plus twenty percent automatic gratuity for four courses. My mussels weren’t hot but weren’t cold. My pasta wasn’t hot but wasn’t cold. My salmon was a little overcooked even though I specifically asked for it not to be. The cheesecake for dessert came super cold, almost frozen. In short, I don’t believe the meal was worth the price. However, I had a terrific experience. It was warm for outdoor dining because they had plenty of heaters. Our waiter was from Albanian and phenomenal (can’t remember his name, but he was attentive and accommodating). The setting is beautiful with all the string lights so it was extremely romantic. So, while I have had much better food for the price, I still walked away thinking that I would like to go back. It was a really excellent time with really okay food.
Fontana never disappoints. Food is very authentic with such flavor And heart in the dishes. Always a pleasant time here.
The staff at La Fontana are amazing. Make the dining experience fun. The food is also delicious!
Fantastic setup for outdoor dining dying covid
Good overall experience. The service was fast and efficient. The two guys were extremely friendly and attentive. I will probably come here again.
Our food was outstanding. Well done!
Great outdoor experience!
The outside dining setup was awesome and the food and service was terrific!
What a treat to enjoy a delicious meal outdoors in December! The outdoor setup at La Fontana Della Citta is great and the servers are fantastic. They were working incredibly hard to keep all of the patrons warm, fed, and happy. The food was very good (not quite as good as I remember but still quite delicious) but reasonably priced for the quality. Looking forward to coming back.
Great Job of setting up Outdoors!!
Went for my boyfriends birthday. Food was great. We got the fettuccini Alfredo & penne ala vodka. It is BYOB so remember your beverages! Also finished the meal with tiramisu and cheesecake, highly recommend service & ambiance were great.
Food was amazing. Customer service was great. No complaints.
Creative and comfortable outdoor response to COVID-19 restrictions. Food is fabulous and wait staff are attentive. Don’t forget to BYOB!
Great just a bit loud on the street for outdoor dining
Excellent food and service as always.
One of my boyfriend and I's favorite spots to go to in the city! The food is always great, the service is always on point. They always seem to have some great food/appetizer specials as well. They've done a great job with COVID regulations too. I have enjoyed meals both inside (before the most recent lockdown of course) and outside and both were good! They have heaters outside if you're worried about the temperature. Overall 10/10, come here.
Amazing food and experience! Will be back
It was a glorious 70 degree day on November 10th and we needed to dine outside. Found this restaurant and had a great outdoor dining experience - food and service terrific
Disappointing. We were there years ago. If there is new management, it's not the same. We were largely ignored by waitstaff lost of the evening. Food was mediocre. We will not be going back.
We had a great, badly needed night out for a very nice outdoor dinner in Philly. There was a large bachlorette party of about 35 young ladies waiting to be seated which stressed the staff .....but they dealt with it well. The service was understandably a bit slow but good nonetheless. The food & the ambiance were great, with a hip college-age vibe. The outdoor dining was made comfortable with sufficient heaters.
Dinner was fabulous and the service prompt and professional,well done!
In the midst of COVID this place was incredibly overcrowded, welcoming party sizes over 15 people and staking tables one on top of the other. Food was average, service was decent but had issues keeping a mask on. With so many great Italian restaurants in Philly, this won’t be a place we return to.
The food was delicious and the service was great, had the Chicken Parmigiana, broiled Trout, Chicken with broccoli and asparagus and desert tiramisu
This is a hidden gem downtown Philadelphia. It is BYOB. The food is amazing, never had a bad thing. And the service is great the staff is very friendly and welcoming. You get that family restaurant vibe. Love this place 5 stars!
La Fontana Della Citta is an excellent option for italian. Service is fantastic and the neighborhood vibe is amazing. Highly Recommend going there!!!!!
Service was very good. Ambiance was good too. But the food was not that good. It was very average.
