                                        I was very disappointed last night with this restaurant. This used to be my favorite restaurant. Service was extremely slow they were busy but nothing out of the normal. Many waiters and busboys walked up and down the aisle no one asked us if I wanted another drink if I wanted to order food or if I wanted dessert. We always had to track down our waiter or anyone just a take our order. Plus another table sat by us and they were so loud we couldn’t even hear ourselves think. To make matters worse we were celebrating a birthday and ordered dessert. They couldn’t even put a candle in it to wish Maria a happy birthday. After waiting for 15 minutes, I had to ask for the bill. I asked the waiter to wait as I paid because I knew it would take another 10-15minute for them to return.

                                        We were meeting a friend that took the train in from the city for dinner and picked La Fontanella based on the positive reviews. Needless to say we were not disappointed and everything from the food to the friendly attentive service was very good. Would return without hesitation!

                                        Ordered short ribs, but it wasn’t shorts ribs ???? Why would the restaurant tell you they had short ribs on the menu & then bring you something else ??

                                        We had a lovely lunch - the service and food were outstanding and the environment felt very safe in this time of COVID.

                                        La Fontanella is a wonderful restaurant. The staff treats patrons like family and the food is always excellent. The chef personally visited my wife and I for our anniversary dinner. If you are inclined to dine out during these difficult times, eating at La Fontanella will not disappoint.

                                        We have eaten here twice in the last month. This last time we were a little more disappointed. We got the fusilli octopus pasta and the paccheri amatriciana. The pastas were a bit bland. For app we got the cold antipasti which was a little skimpy. Not enough prosciutto and the hard cheese was cheap wasn't parm reggiano which is a no go for me. That's how restaurants try to slide by on the cheap. The servers were pleasant and attentive and the liquor was priced reasonably. Don't think we need to go back here again though.

                                        Lovely ambience and great staff. The food was fresh and delicious. Overall, a perfect evening out to celebrate. The evening allowed us to forget about the chaos in the world for a moment while we dined under the stars to celebrate another trip around the sun.

                                        Outstanding! Eggplant rollanti, clams and burrata were starters and the cocktails were perfect. Main dishes of Pappardelle pasta, chicken, steak, were tops and cooked perfectly. Great flavors. Pistachio cheesecake were perfect to share. Staff is always wonderful!!!!

                                        The food is preposterously decadent. Everything is perfect. The eggplant was sliced thin, the ricotta filling tasted homemade, the veal was thin and tender, the bass was perfectly cooked, the spinach was flavorful, the pistschio layer cake was divine. Even the coffee tasted like it was made with care! The waiter checked on us frequently, and he dragged the head chef out to talk with us. He's been there for almost 20 years! It was a bit pricey, but it IS fine dining. And fine it certainly was.

                                        Our new favorite Italian Restaurant. With indoor dining unavailable in NJ we started coming here about 6 weeks ago. Saturday was our 4th visit and the food is consistently good, at a reasonable price with excellent attentive service. Small, comfortable place with unexpectedly good food and fine drinks.
