One of my favorite restaurants in Pleasaton right now, their salmon is always cooked to perfection. For dinner the Blackberry Salmon is the best!

I have been to Fontina Ristorante each time I have come to Pleasanton for the past four years. The menu is well rounded with a great variety and the staff is excellent. We always have a group of people and each time no one was disappointed in their meal. You are not rushed through your meal and the wait staff... More

It was Saturday night of Labor Day weekend and we decided to walk down Main St., looking for a decent looking place that had a table available. They found us a table inside (it has sidewalk dining, but was a bit breezy for us). I had the salmon special, which was en croute, but with thinly cut and crisped potato... More

Hello Sierra, We are so very happy to have had you and your wife join us at Fontina over Labor Day Weekend. The salmon special over polenta is one of our specialties that we frequently serve and, as you mentioned..... its a combination that works well. We always try to provide generous portions, which is not true of many restaurants... More

Dined outside, very relaxing, excellent service, perfect spacing between courses. We had the calamari appetizer, 2 house salads, the filet & prawns, the seafood risotto and 2 glasses of La Storia petit syrah ~ no room for dessert😉 Our server was Farhaad, and he was fantastic!

Hello Jennifer, We at Fontina always pride ourselves in providing a good dining experience thru good service, delicious food, and good company. The calamari appetizer is always a GREAT way to start off a meal - it is a very different and, in my opinion, tastier version of the usual calamari that most people are used to having. You chose...

We are sorry that not being able to use coupons during your last trip out to Fontina made it that displeasurable. Like most sit-down restaurants, coupons and deals that we provide are only valid for "dine-in" patrons. We are sorry this was not explicitly stated on the coupon. We will try to correct that in the future. Thank you for... More

Took the advice of a friend and visited this restaurant for lunch. Really quaint spot with a great menu and wine list. The blackberry salmon on polenta cakes were awesome. They do not skimp on the portions. If you love Tiramisu like I do, it was the best I've had. They make it in house and it is very light... More

On New Year's Day, my wife and I decided to try Fontina because a) it was one of the only restaurants open and b) it was full of people. After dining there, it was clear that it was only full of people because it was one of very few restaurants that were open that day. The slow, sloppy service combined... More
