We really enjoyed our meal. Just know that this is a BYOB!
Celebrated my birthday here with my husband and daughters. We all absolutely loved our meals (veal Milanese, tuna, seafood risotto, veal parm). We also shared 2 appe's (fried mozzarella with proscuitto , and eggplant). Everything was absolutely delicious. Service was super efficient and friendly. I would highly recommend this gem!
Food was quite tasty. My only negative was our waiter really sold the special which was Veal Osso Bucco. I did not ask what the price was and I ordered it. The highest price item on the menu was about $ 30.00. Boy was I surprised to see that the special was $ 44.95.
Very attentive and friendly staff. The menu offered traditional Italian fare in generous well prepared portions in a relaxed unhurried atmosphere.
We've been here several times and it never disappoints!! We live the food, the service and the ambiance!! Coming back soon!!!
Delicious, fresh food. Cozy atmosphere. Great service.
Delicious food! Good service and nice ambiance. I can't wait to go back.
Went here last summer and enjoyed it, but we were a bit disappointed this time. Both times we had a long wait even though we were on time for our reservation. I ordered the lobster ravioli special without being told the price and was surprised that it was more than i would pay for a whole lobster elsewhere. Tira misu was not good and all desserts are $11. I forgot to use my open table reward for $20 and when i went back following day they would not give me credit.
Amazing food and service as always!! We always dine there and the food is delicious. I would recommend La Fontana for any special events or even just everyday dining.
It was so good. Best food ever. I can't wait to go back. The service was amazing and they took care of us. They have a big menu with delicious food.
When we arrived we had to wait about 10 minutes before anyone came out to check us in.
The service was slow and I think there was a language barrier. Good food, just seemed like
no one was there but the waiters and busboy - they could have used a hostess.
Our waiter and service was impeccable. The food was overall very good. We really loved the Mozzarella all Fontana for the appetizer and the gnocchi sorrentino for dinner. The calamari was a little under. Lastly the restaurant was packed so the noise level was quite high. Having been there before on a slower night it didn't bother us. But the waiter and overall service was so good that we would definitely come back!
This was our second visit to La Vecchia Fontana. The food was excellent with generous portions. The selection was varied with something for everyone from the appetizers, salads, pastas, entrees etc. The tables are quite close to one another and the room is small so in the summer it can get a bit warm. Too bad they can't expand into the lobby which appears to have a lot of wasted space. We'll be back.
Ordered seafood and pasta which was excellent. Only complaint was the bread had no taste .
Food was outstanding as usual. However, we had to wait 15 minutes past our reservation. Then when we sat down, another 10 minutes or so passed before anyone came over to say hi, fill water or open wine. After that our waiter was great but it took awhile to get going.
New find for us this Summer! Nice portions, fresh food, and terrific service. We will be back!!
Number 1 item. BYOB!!! Hard to believe other reviewers don't say this or put so deep into the review.
This restaurant is in an old hotel now a condo I believe. As such it it retains the characteristics of a typical hotel restaurant mediocre food with high prices.
We had Bolognese and veal française. The veal was fine but the pasta dish over salted.
The wait staff was very nice and did a good service.
Service was excellent. Food was delicious and plentiful as always. We enjoyed a very nice evening and will return very soon. It is one of our 'for sure' spots in Avalon.
My grilled octopus app was so delicious (didn't even need the pesto sauce) that I'll go back just for it. The fried mozzarellA was also very good. We were all four surprised to get 4 different dishes with all the same pink/red sauce. Shrimp scampi with red sauce? The gelato trio was also decadent. I'll go back for sure but read the menu more carefully.
Great place EVERY TIME!
Excellent in every way, there were 3 of us dining and all felt the same.
My wife and I wanted to have a nice, relaxing, delicious dinner together after a long 4 days with kids. A lot of family members recommended this rest as well. We were looking forward to a great experience. If your looking for a romantic, quiet, easy-going place, this is not it. Very small, very loud because of that. I literally could not hear my wife and she was 2 feet away from me. Best feature is BYOB&W. There was no toilet paper in the woman's restroom and rip your own paper towels in the men's room. Also, food is subpar but you pay a premium price. Do not order the Antipasto if your used to classic Antipasto. No buffalo mozz, no real quality meats on the plate and everything drenched in balsamic. Cold bread with rock hard butter, rubbery shrimp, undercooked risotto. Rubbery chicken and my wife got sick that night. The service is average as my wife had dirty plates and waited a bit long for the bill. I did tell our server about the risoto, but there was no manager on duty so no one came by to ask. They did take that entree off and offered a new dish but at this point we were ready to go. I hope your experience is much different.
Great food, but very small place and extremely noisy !
Great value meal during restaurant week. Excellent menu choices to go along with good service in a friendly atmosphere. Thanks!
First visit with 2 girlfriends. We felt there were too many tables crammed into a small dining area. This made it hard to hear ourselves because of the conversations we could hear all around us.
The menu and special selections were plentiful though all of us picked from the regular menu. My grilled octopus appetizer will bring me back, delicious and surprising flavors in every bite.
The service was very good. All staff managed well through the tight space.
Don't look for a quiet romantic table but it is a lively place for a large group with plenty of selections for everyone.
The food was delicious! The halibut special was cooked absolutely perfect! The only reason I didn't give five stars for the whole meal is because my salmon dish was just ok. There was a flavor that just didn't work for me. I asked them to not include the garlic as I don't really care for a lot of it. It is a bit noisy and the service was decent, but a bit hurried. Next time, I will let them know ahead that we want to take our time and relax more between courses. Really, though, I highly recommend it! My friend had the gnocchi with Gorgonzola and it melts in your mouth. The veal parm was cooked to perfection!
Overall, we had a wonderful experience and fantastic food. We did wait at least 20 minutes to be seated for our 6:30 reservation. They appeared to be a bit overbooked.
my wife and I enjoyed a lovely dinner together at LaVecchia - a lovely quiet restaurant where we could have a conversation - the food was excellent and our server was most accomodating - we will return.
We have been to La Vecchia Fontana many times and it never disappoints!! We highly recommend this restaurant. The staff are amazing and the food superb.
Very consistent offerings and good service. Grilled oyster appetizer was delicious.
It's located in strange looking hotel and the room is not big enough for a restaurant. The calamari was chewy and the pasta wasn't that great, the service was good. Very attentive but the ambiance made dinner feel weird
Just a wonderful place great staff love so comfortable
Great food, great service. I think that says it all. Sorry if my review is too short but brevity is a good thing.
The food was excellent. The lasagne was great. Their veal is also very good. My wife had a seafood ravioli. Restaurant is BYOB.
Food is always perfection!
Food is amazing!
Food was excellent - service as well. Always have a wonderful meal here!
This is one of the best Italian restaurants in Avalon/Stone Harbor and one of our favorites overall. Definitely make a reservation because it is VERY popular and sometimes you might have to wait a bit even if you have a reservation. It is a fairly small and crowded room so maybe not the best for an intimate dinner but we love it for a family special dinner.
Food is very good along with very good service and atmosphere.We will be back many times.
