La Fontana Coast Ratings and Reviews
The food was delicious. We were extremely disappointed in the fact that they had an early dinner special but either all members had to do the special or no one could do it. We considered making it clear how stupid this rule was by asking that 4 of our 7 be moved to a separate table so that they could enjoy the special. There was also a bad storm during our dinner and the ceiling leaked. Some of the water dripped into one of our dishes. They took the meal off the bill but I felt that they should have also remade the meal. My daughter left still hungry and ended up making something at home. The food was very good but we most likely will not be going back based upon our first experience.
Amazing! Every time we go there, we are very pleased with the service and the food was delightful! We ordered risotto scampi, bronzino, and fried calamari. The next day, we also visited the Fratellis pizza next to the restaurant ! The oven pizzas with a thin crust were really good and everything had a very Italian taste. Best restaurant and pizza in the Isle!
I made a reservation at La Fontana Coast to dine with my family and we left very happy! We had the gnochi gorgonzola, rissotto pescatore and vitelo fontana which was cooked very well! The food was very delicious and we ended the night with cannolis and home made tiramisu! Cant wait to go back again!
Have dined here and at the other Fontana Restaurants many times. As always, the food was very good..we had 2 veal dishes, a fish entree and a pasta entree.Everyone was pleased. As important as the food, is the treatment you receive from the staff and particularly the owner. If he recognizes you as a regular customer, he will make you feel very welcome and let you know he appreciates your patronage.
The only suggestion would be to ask the price of the specials as they can be quite pricey.
We were at La Fontana Coast and La Fontana Del Mare and it was amazing! Their staff as always is very welcoming and we had homemade fettucini with sea food and the veal fontana! It was very delicious, and cannot wait to try the other location in Avalon! Dinning outdoors at La Fontana Coast is a must for summer during the evening. Best restaurant in Sea Isle!
We were very disappointed with the entire experience ar this restaurant. Having been there before, we expected a higher level of service, better quality & presentation of our appetizers & main entree. The noise level was deafening, the service was slow & the food not worth the wait.
my husband and I make sure we visit both LaFontana Coast and LaVecchia two of our favorite reataurants when we visit the shore. We were at both this past weekend and both were very enjoyable. Our dinner at LaFonta Coast is always an enjoyable experience. The food is excellent the service of the staff is excellent. We so enjoy talking to our servers who are so courteous and gracious - favorites from Bulgaria and Albania - "hats off" to the propriortor for training them so well - so anxious to please they are. Thank you so much for being here.

Never order a "special" here without asking the price. Although the specials are no more special than the menu items, they are considerably more expensive. We've been unpleasantly surprised with our bill more than once, tonight being one of those times, so make certain you know how much you're paying before ordering. We were a party of 5, but were seated at a table for 4 with an extra seat. Way too crowded. We had reserved an outdoor table but we're seated inside. Three of us had cappuccino after dinner, and two had coffee. The cappuccinos weren't even lukewarm, very disappointing. Although we said this was a birthday celebration when the reservation was made, there was no effort to recognize it. Service was rushed. On the positive side, the food is good and it's a BYO, but there are better choices in Sea Isle.
We had a great time at La fontana last week! The food was one of the kind! If you are looking to have a quality time and want quality food, then La Fontana is the best choice for the summer! Nothing beats the fast service, the welcoming atmosphere and beyond everything, we are always impressed at their specialty to make us feel like home! Their homemade tiramisu was very fresh and we cant wait to go back again!!!!!
We've been going for years and always have a great time. The food is great and the service is warm and friendly. While prices aren't a bargain, the fact that it is BYOB keeps the total bill reasonable. My wife and kids are allergic to gluten and they always have gluten free pasta and other gluten free options. Bottom line is we always look forward to it and always leave happy.
As always a wonderful dining experience. Love the BYO option, and the food once again didn't disappoint. Tables were crammed together very tightly which made conversation difficult at times. We have had same charming waitor each time prior, but this night had a rather disinterested waitress that seemed to want to go home and not deal with MDW crowds. We will always come back though!
