Driving from Orlando to Miami International Airport we were looking to have lunch somewhere, before catching our flight.
Doral was close by and we found La Fontana searching Google. Liked the pictures and decided to give it a try. I am so glad we did!
The restaurant is in a commercial strip and it looks like a regular place from outside.
As soon as you walk in …. You can see that it is not.
The “company” started in 1980 and it spans 3 generations.
The dining area is not very big and it’s cozy, it has that “cantina” feel to it, a family run business.
Everyone was very polite and friendly. It felt more “informal” than you regular “chain” restaurants.
It was lunch and the place was not packed so service was spot on. Cannot comment on how it would be for dinner.
But how would be food be ……. It was amazing! They have a few homemade pastas and you can tell the sauce is homemade.
We had 5 different dishes, and the 5 were great.
Dessert was great as well, and the coffee was just right.
After we finished I understood how they’ve been in business for almost 40 years.
If you are in the area, try this place, I think you might like it.
Next time I’m in Miami, definitely going there again.

Impressed with the restaurant. Had high expectations but it fell a little short. The bread was great. The soup veg cream lacked flavor the pastas were ok osso bucco was ok tender but the price floored me. The service started off good but we were forgotten when the rush started. You need to make reservation.

Let's start with the best of this place, "The environment". Very nice atmosphere! Attention was fair, acceptable but nothing special. I was there alone and for lunch, my order was a vegetable cream and penne 4 cheeses. The pasta was really good, al dente and excellent taste but....... it was just warm, something unacceptable in a place like like this. The soup taste to be very honest was simple. Maybe next time I will be able to enjoy better options.

Pasta is very good as well as Pizza (Italian style, not American); so are the appetizers and the pasta. We’ve been there several times over the last 2 years and have never been disappointed. Same goes for ‘Pizza to go’, have ordered multiple times and been satisfied

If you are from Venezuela and more specifically from Caracas, this restaurant will remind you of the many great Italian restaurants that we had in Caracas back in 80’s and 90’s

Service is not very good though, while the staff is friendly the whole logistics system around serving the tables and rotation of waiters is messy. They could use some professional coaching in this aspect to
Improve the overall quality and experience

Suggest making reservation on weekend nights as it gets really crowded

Went here for dinner last night and could not of been happier!!! This is the best Italian food we have found in Florida! The server Fabrizio couldn't of been more helpful and sweet... Took the right amount of time between meals so you felt you could relax and not rushed.. the happy hour is half price bottle of wines which was a wonderful thing! The pasta is outstanding!!!! Most places overcook the pasta.. it was perfecto!!!! The ambience is just beautiful! I really think this is the best service and food we have had in a very long time! Cannot wait to come back!
