I love this place. I’ve loved it for years. The food is is just plain good.
There were 5 of us. We were late and arrived after restaurant closed. But I pleaded that it was for a special 60th bday. Everyone was impressed with the quality of their dish. Fresh ingredients, not over cooked (especially the seafood dishes). Our server Dave was awesome. Attentive and very warm/genuine service. Not rushed. Will be coming back for sure.
Really good service. Food was well prepared and presented well. Wife is GF and they went all out and even had GF bread (for a price), but it was really good!
Great place for lunch, dinner. Quiet, excellent service, nice décor, good food. A bit pricey in my opinion but it is good.
Food and service were excellent! Will definitely go back.
The bread is to die for.... Service & food are always great.
Our waitress was amazing!
We have been to Fontanas a number of times and have been very happy wih the food and service. We tend to go there for dinner on special occasions (birthdays, Christmas Eve, etc.) as it is conveniently located near my father's retirement community.
We went there for Easter Dinner this year and were a little disappointed. The waitress was extremely nice and pateint with my elderly father. But she seemed a little overwhelmed by the bustle of the evening. And we returned two of our meals to be re-heated as the food was served cold.
We most likely will go back as we have historically liked the food and the environment but this experince was not as good as our previous visits.
Fontana's is an institution in Cupertino. It has delivered fine Italian food, good service, and a relaxed atmosphere for more than 30 years. This last visit did not disappoint.
We went to this restaurant after many years. The place was full on a Friday night. The portions were large so we asked to split our main dish - there is a charge for this but that was the right thing to do. The food quality was good but the service was slow and the server was quite rushed because they were understaffed. Overall, we had a good experience.
Intimate dining. Authentic Italian food. Nice ambiance.
Food a bit too spicy, bread was superb. Disappointed to find a 3% “tax” added to the bill with no prior notice. Pricing is quite high enough to facilitate the new minimum wage requirement.
Very nice as always, but even more expensive for lunch than I remember. A special salad with salmon was $32, which seems excessive, even for there.
I enjoyed lunch with a good friend for a long catch up. We took our time and were not hurried by the wait staff. The food was delicious, pricey for lunch, but that was our choice to order salmon and scalone with espresso drinks, appetizers and dessert. Food was served hot and quickly by an attentive server.
Great food and excellent service.
We hadn't been to Fontana's in a number of years and yet it continues to provide excellent food in a very nice restaurant with excellent service. The Italian dishes are authentic and wonderful. The servers are pleasant, attentive and efficient without hovering. We dined after a marvelous performance of 9-5 at Foothill Theatre, arriving at the restaurant about an hour earlier than planned and no problem getting immediate seating. My wife's sister and her husband were with us and it was their first time at Fontana's. Her husband has Italian heritage and he was very pleased with the food. Go, Enjoy, go again.
We had a lovely fresh meal, prepared with finesse, before attending a concert. We split the artichoke appetizer. I had the gorgonzola salad with a delicious steak addition, and zabaglione for dessert. My friend had pasta carbonara and the sorbetto. We each have different food intolerances and the server was very helpful in helping up negotiate the menu.
Really mediocre Italian food esp for the price. Server was nice but main courses were ready way before we finished appetizers so it wasn’t as hot as I’d like— angel hair stuck together in a blob because it cooled down so much. Really nice, spacious, pretty restaurant though
came in 15 min before closing and staff treated us great :) Ordered the calamari as an appetizer which tasted fresh :) even the batter was light which is rare. For entrees we ordered a risotto and a prosciutto pizza which left me wanting more after each slice. Awesome experience will def come again.
I informed the hostess when we arrived at the restaurant that we were celebrating a birthday. I expected some sort of mention of it from our server. There was nothing at all. She couldn’t seem to get our orders straight, kept forgetting things. The food was so-so. And then to have to pay an extra tax for living expenses! I just don’t see that as the patron’s responsibility. I won’t be returning.
Foods and service was great. We will be back
Fontana's provides consistently good food with excellent service at a reasonable price. We often go there before Flint Center events. We appreciate the convenient location. Also, it is possible to have a conversation with others at the table without hearing conversation from other tables. That is a real plus in Silicon Valley.
Always dine at Fontana’s before going to Celebrity Forum. It’s the best food and service
Portions seemed smaller than prior visits, service was good, ambiance very nice
We all enjoyed a nice dinner and desert. Friendly service, and best of all, you can have a conversation!!!!
Our waitress was attentive and friendly.
The service was great, however the food was average and over priced.
Service was good for the first half of our meal and then the waiter disappeared. We liked most of our food, but two of us ordered the scallops and they had an off, fishy taste, like they'd started to go bad. The lasagna was good. We weren't unhappy, but for the price, there are better options.
The food was delicious and was enjoyed by all in the party. The service from the host the server was supperb.
We’ve been going to Fontana’s for years. I must say Our favorite dishes aren’t as good as they once were. The price has gone up and the quality down. Our server was excellent and very knowledgeable. The atmosphere is inviting and warm. Just bring back the great chefs!
Everything was very nice at Fontana’s but we should have asked how much the special cost. We were surprised when we got the bill - the charge for spring pea ravioli and scallops was $38, which seemed very high for lunch.
Always a very good authentic Italian experience. A very nice Valentine's Day experience.
My wife and I are went for Valentine’s Day dinner. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Then there was a long gap in getting our drink / appetizer order before another long gap before getting our dinner order. There were long gaps in between getting our appetizer, dinner and desert. We were there for 2.5 hours in what could have easily been an 1.5 hour dinner. They were definitely slammed as all restaurants are on Valentine’s Day, but I couldn’t tell if they were understaffed or if it was just poor service. The ambience was great and the food was solid, just over priced, but that’s the Valentine’s Day tradition.
We enjoyed our meal and the service. Our only comment was the seating was a bit close to other diners. Since it was a week night and the place wasn't very crowded we were hoping to be seating in a quiet area. Unfortunately we were seating about a foot away from diners on our left and right (on our right was a group of people who talked loudly. So it was difficult to hear each other for our special occasion). There were whole sections that were empty during our time there so it would have been nice to be seated in a quieter area.
This is my mom's favorite restaurant, and we eat there every time I visit her. Service is always excellent, food is consistently wonderful, and the whole place has a great ambiance. Noise level is often a little high because it's busy. Get a booth toward the back if you can.
It was super Bowl Sunday. So it was more quiet than usual. food is always good.
I always enjoy going to Fontana's. Noise level is low, so you CAN carry on a conversation, service always excellent, and food has always been very good.
In summer you can have lunch outside, and also dine if it is warm. Ambiance is also very nice.
We love going to Fontana with family, kids and friends. Great location, great food and great ambiance
Great food, cocktails & dessert
Enjoyed the round table near the fireplace, although it was a bit close to the table near us
Service was very attentive
Hostess was very welcoming
