We came here for our last meal dinner in Visby, and had an excellent meal. Both the rack of lamb & the venison were perfectly cooked, and the venue was very pleasant, with good service.

Good atmosphere, pleasantly decorated and not too crowded, I found La Fontana Restaurant on my way to Stora Torget, the main square in Visby. The menu was quite varied and prices reasonable, both for the meals (main course and desserts) and drinks. The service was very friendly and efficient. Great option for lunch and dinner Highly recommended.

While all the seats outdoors were fully occupied, we were offered a table inside. Which was okay and nice. Our orders were taken quickly and we were served quickly. All dishes tasted well. Though it was difficult to get attention from waiters after we got our order, they were helpful when we asked them to get our 'well done' meat... More

La fontana overlooks the main and busy street in the old town center. When you sit outside you will enjoy seeing people walk in the street. The food waa good. We had salad and lasagne, all were good. The Gotland saffron pancake was amazing. The service was very good.

I had the fish on "planka" with a crayfish hollandaise. Seriously absolutely wonderfully delicious! My partner enjoyed a pizza, and was equally delighted with his meal. All the other patrons were served very good looking meals, and service was swift and friendly. Best meal in Visby so far!

We waited for our food for about an hour, the couple who came after us had eaten and left, before we got ours. That happens, no big deal but... A waiter poured a full glass of beer on my friend (who had her only jumper on) and her child. Our kids got super-peppery meatballs (they were replaced, though). To top... More

Visited in May 2016. Nice atmosphere. Food was of great quality and very tasty. Prices were at the same level as other establishments nearby. (Tip: check out the daily specials board for some real bargains). Service was excellent. The waiter was very friendly and helpful. Had such a good experience that we went back the following night.

Mediocre food and awful service. We had pizza and a standard "plankstek" which was in the same level as any Liw quality highway diner but process were outrageous. Observe! They charge for tap water!!

We ordered 2 glasses of Malbec and when they eventually arrived the wine was corked (off). My wife complained and they said it was definitely Malbec. I explained it was corked and they said wine with a cap couldn't be. The woman asked if we wanted our money back and then when we said yes she said she wouldn't. I... More
