Arrived on time for 730 reservation. Hostess ( who was also acting as server)finally came out to lobby at 740 and said “ who’s next”? To the now 10 people in lobby. We were finally seated at 810 pm, and our server and the food were good.
Food was excellent and service was great. We throughly enjoyed the wonderful dining experience. Sorry that they’re now closed for the season but look forward to returning in Spring upon reopening.
Food and service was excellent!
Very creative menu with authentic Italian flare. The service was attentive and available. The atmosphere was ok since it is off a condo lobby. All meals ordered were made with fresh ingredients and the presentation good. It is BYOB so be prepared. The liquors store is only 1 block away. The deserts were excellent and unique.
Reservations don’t mean anything here. It’s basically first come first serve!
Only complaint was that the coffee with dessert was cold. Meal and service were otherwise fabulous.
The food was extraordinary! Raquel provided exceptional service!
Very few people there. Very quiet and intimate dinner for our 46 th Anniversary. Meals were delicious, Salmon and crab risotto, and Veal Piccata. Service was excellent. A great experience.
We made an open table reservation for 7:00 pm, but weren’t seated inside (per our reservation request) until 7:40 pm. There didn’t appear to be enough help to service the customers and as a result the waiter didn’t take our order u til after 8:00 pm. Those reservations who did not elect to dine indoors I felt were in a very unenviable position sine the outdoor temperature was hovering around 60 degrees and there were no outdoor heaters or lighting around the tables. The food was solid italian fare with excellent menu options. The portions were sized properly for people to consume all of the food they were served. There are a lot of Italian restaurants on the Jersey shore and several that provide more ambience and better value for the dining dollar. Therefore, it is unlikely I will return anytime soon.
Food was good, the service could have been better. Waiter was not attentive to r table
Had to wait a long time after reservation. Had special burrata salad and special entree and neither was that great or worth the cost. Other entree was good.
Great dinner within covid restrictions.
We opted to eat at one of the tables in the parking lot, which does not help the ambiance. However, the food was excellent and the service is great. Highly recommended.
While the food is good and we’ve been coming for years, it’s a free for all in terms of seating. They don’t use the reservation system so you have to basically jockey for your table. Horrible
Lovely great place to go at the shore!!!
Very unorganized. Food was average.
Great food! Great night for outside dining
we ate inside....one of only 3 tables.... perfect for social distancing...
food was delicious... well done
Outdoor dining was great and well spaced. Food was delicious and came out in timely manner. We had a bit of chicken, veal and pasta and it was all delicious.
It was probably one of the worst restaurant experiences I have had. The service was slow and and there was no follow-up by the waitress. While the food was OK, it did not fit the price tag charged. There was no value. My partner ordered the special and while it sounded good, the end result was far from expectations. There seafood was extremely minimal. We overheard the manager saying they had a lot of cancellations and no shows. After our time there, we understood why. We will definitely not be back.
Excellent experience as always ... Good as always was fantastic . One of our favorite places to eat in Avalon / Stone Harbor
The make-shift restaurant in the parking lot is surprisingly quaint. The food is always delicious!
A sudden sunset downpour delayed seating at the outdoor tables as they were dried and re-set. I oped to dine indoors. There isn't much decor to speak of inside, but the attentive service and food quality more than made up for it. The head waiter was delightful and promised I would enjoy his grilled artichokes on the menu. Well, they were indeed scrumptious! By the time I finished, the outdoor seating area was bustling and lovely.
Outdoor seating was well spaced. Food was very good. We had a very sweet server too.
The quality of the food was not worth the price. Food was also cold, as kitchen to out door dining is quite far, should use food covers to help prevent food from getting cold from the kitchen.
Under the circumstances the staff did an excellent job. Food was delicious.
The meal was excellent as well as the service. The staff had there hands full with rain all afternoon but set up the whole restaurant outside. I am grateful that they do this and we have a nice restaurant to enjoy dinner at.
Very expensive but nice !
Service and food was excellent and with all that is happening with outside dining/covid - you felt comfortable and space adequately apart.
very nice considering pandemic conditions. would recommend !
Great outdoor dining during the pandemic. The staff was friendly and courteous and the food was excellent
We love dining outside at La Vecchia Fontana! We had an anniversary celebration of 8 and were pleased that they could accommodate us for such a pleasant evening. Good service and delicious food under the umbrellas. We highly recommend this restaurant.
We were looking for a spot between Wildwood and Ocean City. This was perfect. The food was delicious.
Food wa s excellent and outdoor seating area was appealing and comfortable.
Outdoor seating was very nice, food was outstanding!
Really love the outdoor dining at this restaurant. Tables are well spaced. Umbrellas make it charming. Food was delicious. They could have used a few more servers because service was a bit slow. I know, I know, we’re on vacation!
Food a bit overpriced and inconsistent but overall it is good, not great. App of artichoke was very good, chicken marsala was very thin and tender but too much breading that was crunchy so as to be annoying and risotto was very good. Service was prompt and pleasant, Ambiance and noise were, of course, affected by the restrictions of the pandemic so not legitimate scores.
Always fabulous, even with outside seating! Well done staff!
