I've been here several times now and La Fontanella from what I experienced is better than most tiny neighborhood Italian restaurants for instance the kind that serve pizza in addition to dinners. Usually the braised items and specials are good like osso buco or braised rabbit. I had the pounded chicken dish here before and it was dry and next to tasteless so I was afraid to try other chicken dishes here. I once really enjoyed the vegetable lasagna here and on my last visit ordered it again. I know I was wrong not to send it back but at the time I was dining with a group of people and thought maybe the taste of it didn't mix with the wine I was drinking. After a few more bites It just seemed oily and watery without a tasty seasoning or maybe the vegetables in it were old? Don't know it just tasted unpleasant, even my husband tasted it and he said it was not tasty. Someone else in our group had the bolognaise polenta lasagna and also thought that one had some sort of similar problem and she also only ate a few bites and let them take it away as I did with mine. At the end we all had gelato and thought the gelato was good. Like I said Hits and misses!
