The service was slow and the food was poor to mediocre. The lasagna tasted like the sauce was made from canned cream of tomato soup but it was pink. No presentation of the dishes to make them look appetizing, which matched with the taste of the entrees. Risotto Marsala was a little better than the lasagna but not close to being comparable to others I've had from restaurants in the area. Very disappointing.

My party enjoyed the outdoor dining area, however the fact that it is on a busy street makes it noisy. We were seated next to a family with small children which wasn't so great since we were celebrating a special occasion with adults. There were lots of flying insects, which was to be expected since it was outdoors, but one of our party had a large bug fly into his wine. When he told the server, she brought a clean glass, but no more wine!! The risotto prima vera was delicious, as was the tiramisu. The remainder of the dishes we ordered were just "OK".

I was super excited for this place. I had high hopes of a nice eggplant dish, or a simple pasta. But I have strict dietary needs, so there was only one thing on the menu that I could have. Turns out I had that same thing the night before. I went with a simple caesar salad as it fit dietary needs more than the other items. The salad was artfully arranged and the items I requested on the side were. But a Caesar salad is a Caesar salad, it's hard to mess up and it's hard to make amazing. My family likes the dishes they had. Some kinda of pasta with Gorgonzola and a pasta special with prawns.

Our dining experience was excellent. April was our server and knowledgable about specials and gave me a great recommendation for a wine to pair with the mushroom risotto (which was out of this world). We sat on the patio which has a nice ambiance with flowers and fountain. My only recommendation would be they should consider upgrading the outdoor tables and chairs . We shared the tiramisu which was also delicious!

La Fontana Siciliana is a cozy restaurant in Belltown with a well shaded outdoor dining area. The pasta, gorganzola sauce, and seafood were all wonderfully prepared and excellent tasting. There was a wide variety of house wines and the lime tart I had for dessert was outstanding. Our server Mario took good care of us. The only negative was that they had some issues with fruit flies and having to swat at them every so often took away from the experience.

This place is absolutely adorable, service was great, and the food! Incredible. Highly recommend the mushroom risotto and the tiramisu. I warn you-- the dessert menu is a plate full of the dessert options brought to your table, so you can't really say no after seeing it all.

Good atmosphere but overall I felt the restaurant is a little too proud of itself. The waitress was impatient with us (and we were one of only two tables in the place). My meal was average for what I was expecting.

We came from Massachusetts to Seattle, in part to celebrate my birthday with relatives. La Fontana Siciliana is in Belltown, the neighborhood where we were staying, just a couple of blocks from our hotel. I was able to make a reservation at the last minute on the Sunday night of the July 4th weekend, and was overjoyed to be seated in a beautiful, flower-filled courtyard set back on a residential street, away from the hustle and bustle. Everyone in our party thought the food was great, and the service matched it. A big thumbs up!

I love this restaurant and the owner is as hospitable as ever. I have never had a bad meal or even a mediocre meal. Everything is always high quality and each plate is prepared individually. The ambiance in the front part of the restaurant is quite romantic as is the the outside near the fountain. Viva la Sicily!
