La Fontana Siciliana Ratings and Reviews

Food is genuine Sicilian and it is great. Order the carrot soup if it's available. It's better than the squash soup. Rich creamy base with ground carrots, cheese and other mystery ingredients. It's out of this world. Not at all noisy; great for good conversation. Good standard desserts but order the sherbet - it's specially prepared and delightful. My favorite is lemon. And, if he's in, be sure to talk with Mario.

This was our third visit to LaFontana, a hidden gem of a restaurant. Each time we've been very happy with the entire experience. This visit was to celebrate our anniversary and we decided that this is our new favorite restaurant to celebrate special occasions !!
The food is absolutely delicious each and every time we've gone. The mushroom risotto is one of the best dinners I've ever had. My husband had veal that he said was delicious too. When they realized it was our anniversary they brought us special liqueurs to enjoy with our desserts. The presentation is beautiful. Obviously they care very much and it shows!
We are already planning another visit in the spring and hopefully the weather will cooperate and we will be able to eat in the fabulous courtyard.
This restaurant isn't to be missed!!

My husband and I took my mom and her husband here for a birthday dinner before a show. It had been many years since we have been there, but they only proved to have made incredible improvements since we were last in!
The service was excellent - the perfect mix of personable and playful (it was a birthday after all), yet didn't skimp on formalities.
It's the same ambiance and vibe as it's always had, but the food blew us away! Apologies to the chef for saying this, but my memories of visits prior were "ok" and standard. However, we were pleasantly surprised and so impressed with our entrees (Linguini seafood special, Mushroom risotto, tortellini with meat sauce)... Alm of our dishes were amazing and delicious. Outstanding.
Appetizers and desert were good, but didn't give the same "wow" as the entrees.
I'm going to have to add this to our list of go-to restaurants for when we're craving Italian! This is definitely an "oldy but goody" that proves that it's only getting better with age.

Service was quick but not rushed and the food was incredible. Mario recommended a wine pairing for my boyfriend's meal and it was perfect. It was quiet and cozy where we sat. We will definitely be back here again!

The service was impeccable. The food was divine. To top it all off... A fabulous bottle of wine!!
Seriously, the wait staff were by enough to never need anything, but not enough to be a bother. The food was of a caliber you don't get in other restaurants. The marsala reduction was amazing to say the least. Dessert was a cannoli with white chocolate and ricotta cheese filling... OMG, I could have died happy right then!

From the minute you walk in the door you are met with a friendly atmosphere by staff. We were promptly brought water, something I appreciate a lot, and the staff could not have been nicer. The owner greeted us when we came in and left. The food was superb, and everything was timed perfectly. I can't wait to go back!

What a lovely gem to find in downtown Seattle. The maitre'd (owner?) was very kind and showed us to our table. The service was excellent and the ambiance quiet and lovely. The place is fairly small which contributed to the cozy feel. I had the mushroom linguine which was awesome - even the left overs!
Definitely recommend it and will return during our next trip to SEA.

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.
