    Dinner Saturday at 6:30PM. Table for 4. Food was very nice-particularly the Penne Gorgonzola and Shrimp and capellini. HOWEVER, the new decor installed since new ownership lacked any sound deadening materials and over loaded the number of tables. By 7:00 PM, it was impossible to have a conversation across the table. After 30 minutes of shouting at each other, we rushed out. If you go, SIT OUTSIDE!

    Our food was delicious and just the right portions. Our waitress, Carmen, was very warm, friendly and attentive to our table. The place was fully booked yet everyone was getting their food on time - lots of merriment. We had never been there, but clearly it is a favorite of the locals and will be on our dining list in the future.

    This was our second dining experience at La Fontanella, and this time we brought guests. Everyone enjoyed the food, which was perfectly prepared and promptly delivered. Server Hunter was very attentive. We ate outdoors, so the ambiance was as good as dining next to a parking lot can be. Glad we didn't skip dessert as both the tartufo and the rice pudding were excellent.

    Very disappointed that only wine and beer were served. I wish that restaurants would state that clearly on their websites. Food was just ok, nothing to rave about. Wouldn’t allow 1/2 orders of pasta. Not worth going back with all the great restaurants in the area.

    I had the Capellini Terra e Mare and it was wonderful. The pasta seemed very fresh and the shrimp were cooked perfectly. My date had Linguini Pescatore and he said it was spectacular. The meatball appetizer was amazing. Very tender and just covered enough with cheese and sauce. The ambiance was perfect, inside and out. The service was quick and attentive. Highly recommend. I live in Cape Coral but will be returning at some point.

    My pasta Vongole was very good, however my husband doesn't do seafood and ordered plain pasta with capers and olives. He was brought dish with 6 large shrimp that had capers and olives on menu. they took it back and brought dish with capers and olives but charged us price of the Shrimp dish which was highest price pasta on menu! Questioned price was told that's what manager said to charge and for special order. Won't be back...

    Everyone in our party of 5 was very happy with their meal. I had the arugula gorgonzola salad which was slighly overdressed with a nice lemony vinaigrette. My pasta alla bolognese with sausage was excellent. Service was very good. Ambience was surprisingly nice for being loceted in a strip mall.
