This is a wonderful restaurant. Food was best I’ve had since actually being in Italy. Price was very reasonable too. Ray was an excellent server, and service was prompt. All of the people were very friendly as well. Highly recommend it. Thanks to all of you.
Nice little spot in downtown. Very comfortable atmosphere and good Italian cooking. Enjoyed the veal Marsala. Unfortunately ran out of eggplant, but the alternate choice was also delicious.
Everything we ate was better than the last bite. I cannot believe I had an experience at your establishment last night that will be with me for the rest of my life. Thank you. Y’all were amazing.
i love this old school Italian restaurant serving delicious classic antipasto, pastas and primi entrees. All of this in an intimate brick walled setting with eclectic antique wood tables and chairs. White table cloths and assorted lamps on each table. not one ounce of pretense. and to top it off a delightful woman at the piano playing relaxing ivories in which to savor the food and atmosphere. it's a one of a kind in Seattle and a hold out to a previous time. Can't wait to return.
Had dinner here last night. Food and service were excellent. Room tends to be noisy as the walls are all hard surfaces.
Staff and food wonderful well worth the 30 min walk
Ray did an awesome job for us and the food was superb. we enjoyed the ambiance and the decor of the restaurant. We had excellent service and the selections were numerous. everyone in the party of 5 had fantastic meals.
For my family and I, this used to be one of our favorite places for authentic Italian food. We enjoyed several evenings both indoor and outdoor at La Fontana Siciliana.
Unfortunately now is below average.
My wife and I went for dinner and order garlic bread and were served slices of soggy grease bread sprinkled with Parmesan cheese (imagine wonder bread soaked in melted butter with garlic and heated on a hot pan for 20 seconds), also ordered a Caesar Salad and the dressing was from a bottle like Valley Ranch.
The pasta was really good but dessert wasn’t.
Anyway, quality, fresh ingredients and attention to details have deteriorated significantly.
Ahh, services was bad since they are understaffed, one server for the whole section with 6 or 7 tables.
It is ashamed, that place had so much potential and used to be an icon of good authentic Italian food.
Food was ok. Nothing special.
Classy place with high quality food - great Italian cuisine.
One of the best meals! My bday dinner was fantastic!!!
Fantastic as per usual
Best chicken Marsala I’ve ever had. Lovely quaint restaurant with nice staff.
Our server, Ray, was quite helpful with the wine list and the menu as well. He welcomed us and chided us to not wait so long to return!
The veal scallopini was perfectly prepared as was the calamari starter with pesto.
The prices are quite reasonable and the warm dining room very inviting.
Birthday celebration with our family. All enjoyed the food and service.
The food was incredibly underwhelming all around; bread was stale. The servers were very sweet, we felt bad for them. Seems like they get by on tourists and a name that sounds authentic..?
Good food & excellent service
Great spot for a date night. The food is delicious and the service is on point.
This is one of our friends favorite restaurants- and since he was visiting it was the perfect excuse to go again for dinner. Pasta con sardin is the best pasta dish I’ve ever eaten outside of Verona. So rich in flavor without being heavy. Ray our server offers excellent friendly personal service. We sat outside in the courtyard near the street entrance. It’s a lovely place and we will be back.
Quaint little hideout with excellent food and service. Some authentic Sicilian recipes as I was told.
We’re sitting on the patio when it started to sprinkle. The staff moved us inside without a fuss and kept up their good humor and service
DELICIOUS Italian, homemade pasta, fantastic sauces.
Ambience was great, outside seating was not guaranteed even with a reservation, so we had to wait quite a bit for a table. The food was delicious, however the mushrooms may have been from a can, our waiter assured us that wasn't the case, but they definitely seemed off. Overall it was a pleasant experience.
Service is prompt and friendly.
Sad to say we were disappointed in the food. It ranged from bad (old and limp salad, sad bread) to average (veal parmesan and other traditional fare). We knew the menu was “traditional” but hoped it was at least well-executed. It was not. The patio was quiet and good for conversation. Nothing memorable about the wine list. Overall a disappointment.
Risoto de Mare was excellent, the Lemon Gorgonzola Tortellini was even beter, the Barbera wine was excellent, no complaints, great place, great food!!!!!
Always great food and ambience. You can't go wrong by booking La Fontana for dinner.
We celebrated my daughters birthday with family. The staff was friendly and the food was delicious. An enjoyable evening!
This is one of our favorite spots for dinner. Intimate, lovely setting with sweet courtyard for al fresco dining if the weather cooperates! The food is consistently delicious and we love its small footprint within the busy city.
Excellent food and service!! The fountain courtyard seating is nice, but inside is stylishly rustic and inviting.
We were able to get a reservation at the last minute but now I know why. We were seated outside in the quaint courtyard but the table was small and the chairs were from the 99 cent store. We almost didn’t receive complementary bread because he said our table was too small. The waiters service was fine however there wasn’t any authentic or tasty about the meal. I take that back. The meal was memorable because of how overpriced it was. I’ve had more memorable experiences with Chef Boyardee!!
A family member was visiting before being deployed to the Middle East, so I was delighted to find La Fontana still open and serving the same delicious Sicilian options they’ve offered for 25+ years. The cannelloni is amazing, and on a clear night the courtyard offers a wonderful visual ambiance.
Charming courtyard with fountain setting that was nice for eating outside. Our server was excellent! Very personable and recommended a fantastic wine! The food was very good, not extraordinary. Overall, we enjoyed our dinner and wound eat here again.
Outstanding food and service. It’s like going to dinner at a family friends home only the friend is an extraordinary chef!! We sat outside near the fountain. It was a special dinner!
The experience at La Fontana reminds me of coming to my mom’s home for dinner! Owner Mario and wonderful hosts Ray, Jeff, and Naomi were exquisite! I am a raving fan but need to know where you get your spumoni😆
I imagine that this was a nice place 20 years ago. It is an old fashioned Sicilian place with basic, expected dishes. Everything was tasty, but it lacked in freshness and quality of ingredients. They have a great little space, but could use a remodel and a menu refresh. Time to put the passion back in our give it up.
Taking advantage of outside seating in the court yard made the dining experience quite charming. Service, food choices and flavors were all excellent.
Beautiful setting, wonderful food, excellent service
Had a fantastic time! The food was amazing. We had the orange caprece salad, where they substitute the tomatoes with oranges. A must try. The tomato sauce in the pasta dishes was also delightful. I will definitely come back. Jeff, our waiter was attentive and friendly. He was a great addition to our evening. Will definitely come back.
The service, ambiance, food and wine were amazing! Definitely reasonably priced also. It was so nice to sit in the courtyard next to the fountain. Can’t wait to return!
