We have eaten here before. I love the food and the ambiance is lovely. There were large parties of young women there and it raised the decibal level to extreme. It got worse as time went on and we were happy to leave!
Branzino was delicious
Me and the wife went there last night we had an excellent meal she had a veal Parmesan and I had that fish special present now very very good way to be friendly quick service if the room here we had dessert and cappuccinos
Food was fine, good not great. Mussels sweet, simple and enjoyable. Bolognese was much too dark red South Philly tomato saucy rather than a brown veal and carrot meat sauce. Not very good and much better in South Philly. Langoustino was $50 . Pricey! But I couldn't get past the wine glasses. They had the stumpiest stemmed Libbey barely juice glasses that they were using for wine glasses. I found them unacceptable and not up to the glasses used at other center city BYOB's. Heavy rolled edges and thick stems, ruined my nice wine for me.
Won't be back.
Good food; busy Saturday night but we felt everyone was celebrating hubby’s birthday! Our favorite byob!
Neighborhood gem--we love this restaurant. The food is delicious and all of the employees are so friendly. They treat us like family. We highly recommend this restaurant.
We had never been to La Fontana before, so we decided to try it for Restaurant Week. Everything about the meal was excellent. While it was clear that they were trying to move customers through, to maximize the seatings that night, we never felt rushed. In fact, the courses came surprisingly quickly, but again it wasn't as if they brought a course before we were finished with the previous course. The RW menu was a terrific value: four courses and lots of selections for each course. I'm not a desserts person, but the tiramisu was one of the very best I've ever had. In particular, the service was really good; friendly and efficient. We will come again and recommend this place to others.
Dinner was delicious. The gnocchi Gorgonzola was fabulous and The cannoli was phenomenal!!!
Went for lunch during Restaurant Week and will definitely be returning frequently. As we’re new to Philly we’re pleased to find a really good Italian restaurant with a nice selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts. The mussels as an appetizer were delicious, and I’d highly recommend the tiramisu for dessert.
Loved the pastas. My veal was just okay as was the Caesar salad Muscles good ,dessert great
