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!

Overall pasta was tasty and portions fine- but owner not very friendly and lack of kid menu (they both had to order 20$ meals). Veal was meh and small-wine menu vague for anything by the glass.
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.

We love this place! The ambience is wonderful and the food is delicious. The service was a little slow tonight but only because they were so swamped. Also a good wine list.
The servers are charming. The restaurant is adorable The food is really good. I love bringing new people here
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!
Worder full atmosphere. Great food.
The owner and wait staff were very friendly. Great food. Will be back.

Had the yummiest spinach soup and spaghetti. Good options for vegetarians. Had a nice dessert selection too. More on the expensive side for the portion size.

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!

We both ordered the nightly special, and it was fantastic!
Perfect place for a romantic dinner!
We had an eggplant appetizer, a salad, lamb and a vegetarian risotto. The food was excellent! The service was great and we loved the ambiance.
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.
Really good ambiance and great place to chat over a great meal
Charming Sicilian bistro
Delicious food from the old country. We will definitely come back.
La Fontana is an all time favorite hidden gem.
I love La Fontana for special occasions, as well as no occasion dining. Always amazing food, authentic rustic Italian vibe, with fantastic staff and service. It's a hidden gem, tucked away, and private.
Very nice ambiance with excellent service. My husband and I shared risotto and halibut entrees and server was very accommodating with our "family style" dinners. Would recommend to anyone who would like to get away from the fray in Seattle.
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.
Great Italian Delight
We have eaten at La Fontana many times now and it is one of our favorite restaurants. Food and service is excellent!! I would recommend this to anyone who has a love for authentic Italian food!!
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.
A favorite spot!
What an incredibly romantic place with ambiance, tradition, and simple elegance. Food is incredible!
Service was very warm, friendly and attentive. Ambiance was comfortable, romantic and had a authentic nod to Italy. They even had live piano which really set the mood. The food was outstandingly delicious! You could tell they made the fresh handmade pasta in house. They had a great selection of appetizers and salads with fresh produce. They bring the desserts to your table for you to see and choose, which I actually prefered to the dinner menu. For a small fee you can split the salads and entrees, which is what we ended up doing. Fantastic meal and we will be back... Thank You!
Authentic with great service!!

We had an excellent experience, and plan to return soon with friends!
we loved the food!
the service and food were all outstanding - theme from The Godfather played 3 times, but maybe we sipped our wine for a little too long. A fun night!
Wonderful location just north of Pikes Place but out of the crowds. Service was impeccable. Food was great. Prosciutto wrapped fig appetizer was delicious. Entrees were very good as well. Very nice Sicilian house red wine. Overall very nice experience.

The food was excellent, and came out pretty fast. We only had to wait 2 mins to be seated. Our server seemed very busy with credit cards so I understand his lack of attention. Waited 10 mins to get a wine glass refilled so I went to the kitchen and got it myself. He put that on the house to make up for it I suppose. Overall it was great and would surely go again.
