Great food and drink sourced as locally as possible. Excellent for vegetarians. If you have kids make sure to ask for the kids menu.

With a limited menu I was very surprised that at 6.00 pm the only thing we could order was pizza. Service was slow , waited half hour before were able to order drinks , when we did get our drinks I had to send my beer back as it was to warm. Our server was very good. Paul Rosehart

Our waiter (an Australian who was extremely personable) made some amazing recommendations for our family. On our waiters recommendation, I ordered the wild boar belly (something I would have never thought to order) and would not hesitate to order this again. Our appetizers were also delicious and food presentation was top notch!

Servers were amazing, so friendly and supportive of any food allergies. They were great with our seating accommodations and change of seating when it got chilly. The food was so good and rich the cheese board was over and beyond with all kinds of selections and HUGE portions!enough for 5 or 6 to share easy! Drinks were great and a live jazz band was playing. Outdoor patio is by far the best I've ever been to!highly recommended and will be back countless times this summer!!

Experience at this restaurant was disappointing to say the least. We have waited for our food for 1.5 hours and when it was brought pasta wasn’t even fully cooked. When I told our waitress that the food wasn’t good the only thing I heard back was “oh that’s too bad” and then I was brought a bill shortly after asking to pay the full amount despite the delay and food quality being very poor. Overall a very disappointing experience. The only upside was that their beer (flying monkey) was somewhat good.

We got there and they had an event going on so we were place on the grass at a full sun table. We had an infant with us and didn't feel comfortable sitting in full sun so we asked to be moved. The figure out a way for us to be seated at another table on the covered patio. It was my birthday so I asked our waiter to suggest drinks for me, which were both delicious and exactly what I was hoping for. Our waiter also suggested the beet appetizer and even our picky one year old enjoyed everything. Overall the food was incredible and the service was amazing! Highly recommend.

Setting is beautiful, service is friendly, food is hohum (a little salty for my liking, but passable). Great spot to take the family. A quiet escape from the hustle of downtown Elora.

Lovely first night out in 2021. La Fontana never disappoints. The guitarist was wonderful, just loud enough without taking over. The view is wonderful. Great, friendly service. The food is amazing. The pizza - Hot and Honey is always fabulous and the Chocolate dessert is my favourite dessert anywhere. Perfect night!

We had a reservation right before the restaurants closed for the third time. Great protocol in place with decorative dividers between tables that kept diners separate but allowed for fine dining ambience. The food was exceptional, wild boar belly and prosciutto wood fired oven pizza. We shared all the deserts too! Along with a perfect meal we had perfect service from James. He entertained us and looked after our every request. An excellent evening all round. I’d highly recommend La Fontana and look forward to our next visit whenever possible.

My girl friend and I came here and it was so cute! Right on the water and the green flower wall is such a cute accent wall! The Italian pizza is to die for. Also we had a hostess who said it was her first day and she was soooo cute! Loved it and would highly recommend :)

Lovely wood-fired artisan pizza. Very authentic crust. Toppings - was expecting a bit more creativity. Wine was over-priced. Service was friendly. The tent venue concept was nice way to maintain distancing; however we despite the heaters, we were cold.

Everything was overall good except the waiter was extremely pretentious. His service was the only thing that brought the enjoyment level down. It was the most over the top performance I’ve ever witnessed. I think he thought he was doing a good job but he was just making us uncomfortable. He actually told me not to tell him about the bills until later....we had to follow his ‘process’. Very weird!

Every time we go back I'm struck by how exceptionally GOOD the food is, how personable the staff are and what a stunning location it is. How are we so lucky to have this quality of restaurant tucked away in Elora?!
This is place is really a gem, and if you like a phenomenal dining experience with a welcoming atmosphere and truly flavour filled meals, this is the spot for you!
