The timing was odd with COVID 19 happening but that is no excuse for the food not to be hot, or the arugula to be salty, or the bread to take forever. I’ve been to La Fontana before and it was great. Such a difference. Unfortunately not positive at all.

We order a mojito and martini with the antipasti and when finished the antipasti the mojito and the martini arrived.
We ask to order fiorentina, and they don’t have it. then we order the dish of the day and they didn’t have either.
We ordered another food and doesn’t taste good,
We have been before and was an amazing dinner but saturday was terrible.

An outstanding dining experience in a traditional Italian ambience that was comfortable and relaxed. The appetizer, wine, main courses and desserts were delicious . The lighting was perfect . It was our first and definitely not last experience in La Fontana. The servers and staff made us feel welcome and were helpful with the recommendations from the menu .
Not only was the food outstanding but the unhurried pace of the atmosphere that is so important for a wonderful dining experience . We are highly recommending this restaurant to everyone. Thank you !!

Expensive !
Complimentary bread was a tiny portion of bread. If you want the larger bread you have to pay for it
Overpriced drinks ( non alcoholic) lemonades should not cost $6 and $7
Served a vegan labeled dish from menu with cheese sauce!
Disappointed since restaurant had good reviews

Although an overall good experience, I was disappointed because I was told that my dish would be tossed in a cheese wheel, but when they brought the dish already on a plate, I was informed that it was difficult to bring the wheel table side. And although service was good, there seemed to be a lack of interest on the part of the restaurant to make the experience more enjoyable.

I love this restaurant the first time was amazing that why i went again i repeat the plate i ate the first time ( the pasta you made in the cheese)but this time was super different the tasting and was cold. The weather was good so we decided seat outside the server( a girl) never said the name she was a kind cold never went to ask about food she didn’t offer cheese for our pasta she take a long time to bring the bill she was worried about the table in the back where was seat a group of people they works there in the restaurant I think was a days off that day plus another girl dressed with your uniform so I guess she don’t has any time at that moment and she was chilling i understood the people seat outside can be a little noise but they working there or they knows the servers there and all the table was dirty my experience was horrible....

A great option in Doral from someone been going for years. The lunch salads appear to be much smaller and the menu is much bigger - which is the opposite of what I want - but in 2020 I'm still happy.

We were highly recommended this restaurant, we ordered pasta, the hard and salty ravioli, we had to return them, the pasta with salmon, the same raw and salty noodles,
the appertizer, the bread was cold and dry
I was very sorry to have taken my friends to dinner.
I found the price high, paying 200 usd for a dinner that was to my liking
I will not return to this restaurant

Unfortunately I don’t have any positive comment about this restaurant. We’ve been there several times with above average experience but the last time I went with my family the service and the food was very poor. I ordered a ribeye and the meat was incredible dry, unusual for that cut, and expensive. $46.00 for that piece of meat is expensive and I don’t care to pay high prices for good quality food. The rest of my family ordered pasta, it was ok and breaded veal that also was not good.
One thing was good, the sangria. I hope this restaurant improve the quality of their food and service. Otherwise, it will be out of my list.

La carne del lomo a la Bayly estuvo seca, la carne del osobuco de ternera sin sabor, deben mejorar las carnes o dejar de servirlas. Dicho eso, el carpacio de pulpo fenomenal, el minestrone delicioso, el risotto de mariscos estuvo muy bueno. El personal con atención de maravilla. Para la comida que sirven el precio que cobran es exhorbitante. Pero Si es que deciden ir, no pidan las carnes.

Terrible uneatable lousy poorly cooked food. Tried penne in pink sauce, spaghetto aglio et olio, eggplant parmiggiana, minestrone soup. Nothing was even acceptable. Most of the food left uneaten. STAY AWAY.

Great food, noisy but once I asked the waiter to have the music turned off it got much better and were able to hold a conversation. Disappointment at the bar where my sister and I sat to have a drink and the bartender ignored us for 20 minutes and could not have a drink until we were at the table. The food was excellent. I would definitely go again.

Fue la primera vez
Fuimos ilusionados por ver como nos preparaban la pasta dentro del queso,como anuncian en algunos espacios de marketing...y para sorpresa nuestra nos trajeron de pronto los platos elaborados en la cocina....
Extremadamente caro
Por que si la propina esta incluida cobran el 18%y no el 15% ?
6Adultos, 1 niña... $477 sin pedir una botella de vino, solo una copa y sangria
Ningun camarero participo en cantar felicidades....Algo nuevo realmente que llamo la atencion a todos

Fuimos a celebrar el Recibimiento de mi hijo que salió del FIU y reservamos con ancias de conocer y comer las comidas tan deliciosas que presentan en los anuncios. La primer mala experiencia fue con la Senorita tan mal educada por cierto venezolana pero sin clase y bajo nivel de Costumer Service que tiene. Nos recomendó un vino que no recuerdo el nombre que en el menú decía $36.00 pero ella nos confundió con un orgánico del mismo nombre, pero nunca nos mencionó precio, el susto fue cuando nos llegó el check con cobros de dos botellas de vino por $124.00, discutimos y el server principal nos quitó una botella, el server si se portó como un caballero ××××× para el. En precio creo que esta un poco caro para el tipo de Restaurant

The food was great. The service was very good but not friendly. Servers are disconnected from their clients. I would recommend pasta in this restaurant. The meat lasagna was a great portion and very good. My husband had meat and the portion was small and expensive but he felt that the flavors were very good. Make reservations as this place is always full. Meat, chicken and fish plates were all around $35. Looking forward to have their cannoli and they ran out on our last visit. Dessert are hard to share.

Food was amazing! the Risotto alla ruota creamy and delicious and my father loved the ossobuco (the waiter was a little late on telling him not to move the plate from the handle and burnt himself, after he was in pain was that they told him to please move the plate from the wooden plate). Aside from that, everyone enjoyed their food.
One thing is the music was too loud and people had to talk over it.
And also that the fact that the chair I sat on had bubble gum on the wood (thankfully not the chair) and when I stood up my jean was messed up, but the manager was nice enough to bring soda and help me get it out. And they quickly changed the chair. I get that this is not up to the restaurants control, people can be lazy and not ask for a napkin for a gum, but they do have to check their chairs and clean them accordingly.
I would recommend different type of music for the ambiance of the place.
