     we had a lovely time. We started off with the house, Cabernet, which surprisingly was excellent. Normally, we would not have gotten a bottle, but there were four of us so with that being said it was a great tasting wine. My meal, which was the New York strip, was cooked to order, no issues there at all a delightful piece of meat . And the only downfall really was that there were not enough to choose from. I was fine with my sides, which was asparagus and mashed potatoes. I would have liked to have gotten a baked potato which they did not have. The timing was impeccable, I do not like to be rushed . It was just great overall I will be returning and I’m a local.

    Food and service was excellent I was not impressed with the bar choices when it came to my martini There was no decaf espresso so I didn’t order espresso martini There was no flavored vodka so my version of a chocolate martini was not available Vanilla vodka light cream de cacao Salad and appetizer was supposed to come together as requested It didn’t Server was proactive and took the appetizer off the bill We will return It was still very good

    Our dining experience was perfect. Food was delicious, our waiter, Rick, is a true professional, and the noise level of this establishment affords table conversation without the need to shout like so many other restaurants. This is dining out at its best.

    Visiting from Chicago, we found this Italian restaurant in Ft Meyers. We felt like Italian food. We ate during early bird special hour after golfing. The food was fantastic. Service was very friendly and attentive. And great value. Ambience very welcoming. Wish we had something comparable in Chicago. We would go back next time in town. I know my friend who lives in Ft Meyers will definitely come back.

    The table of 8 beside us was so outrageously and rudely loud that we could barely hear our server recite the specials let alone for the 6 of us to engage in conversation. The uncomfortable noise level detracted from the delicious food and resulted in headaches and a very disappointing evening.

    Five of us had dinner here on a weeknight recently and had a fabulous experience. The food was delicious, and I really appreciate that our server Fady came up with a wonderful dish not on the menu to accommodate my dietary restrictions. I highly recommend LaFontanella in Ft. Myers.

Bread was delicious. Our salad was fresh and flavorful, and the entrees were excellent! The tiramisu was one of the best I've ever had. I highly recommend this restaurant!!

    The food here is delicious! I had the Insalata Capricciosa, the tomatoes were great! Also had the Osso Buco with risotto, meat was fall off the bone tender! My Wife had the Vitello Al Pizzaiola, which judging by the “no doggie bag required” was much enjoyed. They were out of Tiramisu, so we split the cheesecake, also delicious! The noise level continually rose as the restaurant got busier. Made casual conversation difficult. I felt the service slower than I would have preferred. Regardless a very good eatery hiding in a small strip mall off Winkler.

    The host seated us quickly, the waiter, Rick, worked with Jorge to give us a GREAT experience. They know the food, wine. etc. Ishmael, the manager, stopped by TWICE to ask us about the food and experience. They GET CUSTOMER SERVICE. The food was quite good too. One suggestion…. pound the veal a little more; it can take it! 🤣 Thank you for a great meal to celebrate our friends b’day. (Mussels with pernod?!? Yes!! Lobster ravioli? Awesome!). (Thank you, the Mahan-Lam contingent…)

    The service was attentive but not overly so. The fish was cooked to perfection. The beef carpaccio was delicious. It is obvious that the staff work as a team to see to the customers' needs. My only suggestion would be to up their ante on sourcing their bread and fresh tomatoes. Thus the 4 stars instead of 5.

    Food was very good… There are items not on menu but if you ask they have it. Example.. Chicken and Veal Parm..Server said too many things to put on menu but if you ask they have it. Prices are on high end but you get plenty! The only negative I would say is $12 for a salad… If you’re ordering a meal and just want a side salad price should be half! Will return but most likely not ordering a salad!

    Waiter was Fady who provided excellent service. Chilean Sea Bass was cooked to perfection. Caesar salad was also very good. The rice in pudding dessert was undercooked and not much cinnamon as in most rice pudding. The ambiance was nice. Prices were a little high but quality of food was above average. All things considered, we would return for another meal in the future.

    This was the second visit for dinner and it surpassed all expectations. Our waiter was great and did not rush us with ordering and dining. Very helpful with suggestions and recommendations on entrees. Two us had the Veal Forresteria which was wonderful and could be cut with a fork. Other two had veal parmigiana which is not on the menu. I would definitely recommend trying this restaurant.
