Found this #1 rated restaurant on Trip Advisor while passing through New Oxford. I can see why it is # 1. The owner and her daughter do all the work, they treat you like family. Mama is the chef/ pastry chef and owner. She frequently comes out of the kitchen to make sure your are happy and satisfied. Her daughter... More

My husband and I decided to venture here as we had heard from two separate people independently that this was the place to go for authentic Italian food. We did the almost hour drive there as we also wanted to do something different and were tired of chain restaurants, The food was great...the owner, who also cooks, visits your table... More

This is the best Italian food in the Gettysburg/New Oxford area. The food is authentic Italian cooked by the owner (Momma Luisa). The service is superb and the atmosphere is very friendly.

For desert we had the cannoli and cheesecake and took a tiramisu home with us. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for true, authentic... More

We went here for an early lunch, found this place on TA with good ratings. We were the only ones in the place (was early) and Mamma Luisa waited on us and told us all about the ingredients and how the food was made. We both had a meatball sandwich and it was probably the best meatball sandwich I ever... More

My husband & I have been to La Fonte many times, and I will say we have never been disappointed! Tonight we were there around 5:00. We were seated & waited on quickly. I can't seem to get away from the gnocchi & meatballs but my husband tried a new dish (for him) called shrimp fra diavolo. It was a... More

The service was wonderful and the owner and daughter were very friendly. The restaurant was clean and welcoming. Sometimes I feel uncomfortable eating or drinking at a bar that dirty but the first thing I noticed when I walked in was that the bar area was very clean and it wasn't cluttered. The lemon meringue cake and tiramisu was phenomenal.... More
