La Fontana Siciliana Ratings and Reviews

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!

La Fontana Siciliana is a venerable Seattle restaurant I should have visited years ago! The ambiance was cozy really did remind me of Italy. The food was delicious and there was a nice variety of choices. I particularly enjoyed the orang caprese salad ( an nice twist on the traditional tomato version. I look forward to my next visit when I hope the weather permits us to dine outdoors!
I love this place and their delicious food. I got the Gorgonzola tortellini and it was FANTASTIC. I've only ever gotten vegetarian pasta dishes and they've been spot on each time I'm in. And then the tiramisu for dessert was a heavenly experience all on its own. I would go back for the tiramisu alone.
Since it was our 30th wedding anniversary, we decided to splurge on a beautiful trip to Seattle. Our dinner at La Fontana Siciliana was delicious. The ambience was quaint and romantic. We were waited on by the owner and hostess who made it a perfect evening. I decided on the tortellini gorgonzola and my husband requested the pollo Marsala. Both were delicious. The pollo Marsala was the best I have ever tasted. It was a special evening!
Wow! Absolutely fantastic Italian food! ...
Wow! Absolutely fantastic Italian food! We arrived as a group of 6 to this small family-owned restaurant in an old house. The ambiance is classy and quaint, with friendly servers. The food was served promptly, and was absolutely fantastic. I had the bruschetta and prawn fettuccine with spicy marinara - outstanding flavours and very fresh pasta. The cannoli was also amazing! Everyone else also loved their meals. There was a good wine selection, and we were happy with the bottle we got (the house sauvignon blanc). The only hiccup came with the bill - we ordered a $40 bottle of wine but were charged $50 because the waiter came out with a 1L bottle instead of 750mL (without asking us). This was quickly corrected by the owner, and he was very gracious about it. Overall, a very nice experience on our trip to Seattle!
I don't live in Seattle but anytime I visit I try to come to La Fontana. The service is excellent but what I really come for is the cheese ravioli in the tomato mascarpone sauce. It's amazing. The desserts are also really good. I totally went off my diet and it was worth every single bite.
Our server wasn't friendly and was REALLY slow and didn't care. The risotto was soupy and didn't taste like risotto, the pasta and wine average. Pretty quiet for Italian, (if you like Terrazzo Carmine or Spinasse, for example). Almost a creepy vibe, but maybe it was just our server. Won't go back ever, because the food just isn't very good.
My evening at La Fontana Siciliana was truely awesome. The restaurant was very quiet on the wednesday night i went only two other couples there. My girlfriend and i enjoyed the food and atmosphere immensly. I especially suggest the garlic bread! It was nice and quiet, and very relaxing. I felt very welcomed despite being a minor. All in all a great expirience.

This place was absolutely awful. The service was poor, the food was bland, and the food + wine were severely overpriced (not expensive, but certainly not worth the cost). I suspect that they stay in business purely based on the location.
