Love this restaurant. Eat inside or outside in warm weather. Their dishes are fabulous. Like their'gracy' better than others o the island. BYOB makes it a great place to dine on a budget.

Have been a fan of LaFontana since its opening. Bujar is a top notch manager and always on top of his game. All the staff are knowledgeable and helpful when it com to their menu and Bujar is usually found in the kitchen making sure the clients choices are cooked to perfection.. Have never been disappointed.

Even in the off season, there is not a better Restaraunt on South Jersey shore. Waiters are very attentive. And the food- from appetizers through dessert- is always fresh, varied, and delicious. And the owner- knows and remembers all of his patrons. Enjoy this place, we always do!

I just keep coming back! The food is delicious but it does get crowded and loud. That's ok though..because you just always end up talking to the people next to you! Make sure you make a reservation. Honestly..as I hate lines..I think the fact that they accept reservations is one of the main reasons I keep coming back. We were... More

What a wonderful dinner this evening at La Fontana! We had the arugula, beet and mozzarella salad special. It was lightly dressed which was perfect. The mixture of all ingredients was delicious. It was big and can definitely can be split. My husband has the pasta fagiolo soup. He said the pasta was aldente and reminded him of my step... More

I ate here with a group of girlfriends and we just loved it. We were a little taken aback when we first got there at how noisy it was inside, since it is a VERY busy place. Thankfully, we got seated in a back alcove which gave us a little privacy and less noise. Our server was so sweet and... More

I ordered the shrimp with the pink sauce which was really good. I did have to pay an additional $5 for my salad. My sister ordered veal and it was not as good as she had experience previously at other Italian restaurants. Our waiter was new and forgot to bring her tea which had to be taken off the bill....

I enjoyed our meal at the Coast. I think they need to thin out the tables a bit. It's too crowded. Feel like you are sitting on top of one another. And it is loud. But the food is outstanding.
