La Fontana Coast Ratings and Reviews
La Fontana Coast was a great restaurant. Food was good and so was the service.
Being one of the best restaurants in Sea Isle City - it was packed.
However the goal to get as many people served took away for the atmosphere more like a cafeteria vs. a fine Italian Restaurant. But a must restaurant for your shore visit.
I've been a resident of the Cape May Point area for 30 years and don't venture as far as Sea Isle usually. Meeting friends that lived closer I found La Fontana on Open Table and decided to try it. We went pre season on a week night and it wasn't too crowded. We ate outside and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. I had a bronzino filet with artichokes that was delicious and my husband had a pasta special stuffed with crab and in a saffron sauce. His was fabulous. It's worth a try. It's BYOB which I always love!
Consistency is key to the success of any restaurant and both La Fontana's have that (shore restaurants). We decided to come back after a good experience in March for my daughters birthday and were there for Easter Saturday this year. Great all around - surprised they didn't have meatballs though - however the kids still loved it. We look forward to the summer with you and will see you soon!
LaFontana did a great job of accommodating a large group of nine and making everyone feel right at home. The food was great and they opened our wine for us as they greeted everyone at the table. Service was spot on and we had a great time. We will definitely go back.
Excellent Italian cuisine with a large menu so everyone can find something. And all well prepared. A recent arugula salad with prosciutto was perfectly dressed. The bread is crisp and chewy, good quality olive oil provided. Pasta perfectly cooked.
Service is attentive but not annoying. Good place to connect with friends as the noise level is reasonable too.
Service by all wait staff was excellent.
We didn't know until we arrived that they were offering a special 4 course meal option which all of us were very pleased with. From appetizers to dessert everything we ordered was delicious. We plan to return and highly recommend to anyone looking for a lovely place to have a great meal!
Everything was excellent! Exactly what we were hoping for a restaurant off season. PENNE ALLA SCAMPINI (Penne pasta sauteed with jumbo shrimp and garlic finished in basil-rose cognac cream sauce) was to die for! They are VERY accommodating which you don't see very often anymore. Thanks for the excellent food and service! We'll be back soon.
We decided to try La Fontana during the off season. It was excellent and there was no wait. The service was very good and not intrusive. The food was superb. I recommend going with one of the specials as they were so fresh.
La Fontana Coast does it again. And by "it" I mean all of it! Service is very attentive. The menu has so much to choose from for chicken, veal, seafood & pasta lovers (oh, that delicious Lobster Ravioli dish!!) The food is consistently excellent (try their other locations and you'll see what I mean). The decor is beautiful. It's a BYO so the wine is always perfect. The desserts are scrumptious (Tiramisu anyone?). Just went there with a group of 8 on Saturday night at prime time...everyone raved about it and we never felt rushed. A standout spot to be sure!!!
