    Service and food outstanding. Would like to see the Specials pricing instead of having to ask our server or being surprised. This is one of our go to places in SIC. Great job!

    We had dinner at the same La Fontana 2 weeks prior and had essentially the same meal. The difference being that 2 weeks ago the bill was less than $100. This time just over $200. Our two daughter's ordered pasta with butter both time. When the bill came this time, they charged us over $31.00 for each of my daughter's dishes. When I ask the waitress to explain the bill, she didn't do a very good job of explaining so I asked to speak to the MOD or the owner. After several minutes and no one coming to the table we just paid the bill and left. We have had a house in Sea Isle for 45+ and ate at La Fontana multiple times each year. Never again.

    Very busy restaurant; we had our meal outdoors. Service pleasant but long wait for food . That was expected as menu states 45 minute wait. Menu also indicates $25 charge for those at table not ordering, and also no more than two credit cards per table. Capellini positano was very good but crabmeat was not jumbo lump as menu indicated, pieces were small, some shredded. Did not affect flavor, which was very nice, but jumbo lump is preferred. Gnocchi sorrento also good, very rich. Spinach salad was well prepared. Fairly expensive.

    We were seated promptly. The waitress was quick to greet us and delivered very professional service. Appetizers arrived in a short time and were delicious. Our main courses were brought out in a very reasonable time. We weren’t rushed nor were we left waiting ling either. Perfect timing. The food was delicious with nicely sized portions. Dessert as tasty as well. Overall a great, reasonably priced experience that will bring us back the next time we’re in the area.

    We asked to move our reservation from 6 to 5:30 and s they said no problem. We had two young kids with us. They brought the 16 month old dinner immediately, which made it easier on all of us. The food was outstanding. The waiter and waitress couldn’t have Ben nicer with the kids.

    The food, ambience, and service were OUTSTANDING! We had 2 Italian chicken entrees that were ample portions and tasted great. Badhi, our server was attentive all night. He explained all of the entrees in detail. He checked on us frequently to make sure everything met our expectations. I highly recommend La Fontanna Coast as one of the BEST restaurants at the South Jersey Shore.
