First time visit to iconic La Fontanella tonight, with empty stomachs and high expectations. Service was quick to seat us, bring water and welcome us. Took three visits from waiter just to get him to take our app and wine order tho.
Bread and dipping oil arrived before app and bread was warm, soft and the seasoned olive oil was just right. Ordered the baked artichokes, caprese and anti-pasti plates for appetizers. All were prepared properly but somewhat one-note with lots of lower grade olive oil.
My dining mates ordered the mussels, the canneloni and the osso busco while I had the special: lobster ravioli. Each plated was served hot and was thoroughly enjoyed.
At that point, our server disappeared for over 3/4 hour, leaving us with empty plates, empty glasses and very little options. Dessert was offered but most of us failed to leave room. The total for dinner for four, three apps and a bottle of wine came to $205 including tip.
I would recommend La Fontanella but ask for the main dining room, lest you be forgotten.
