“neighborhood gem”
Reviewed 3 October 2010

We have dined here dozens of times over the last dozen+ years and have never been disappointed. Service is generally excellent as is the food with a good wine list and an outstanding variety in their menu. Meat, seafood and pasta cooked to perfection. We've taken many guests there all of whom have been quite pleased.

“Romantic and Relaxed”
Reviewed 6 September 2009

I was looking for a place to take my wife out for a romantic evening dining experience. We found LA Fontanella by their newspaper advertisement of dinner for two for $45 and after looking at other reviews decided to partake. We were so pleased with the little romantic table we were led to and the meal was excellent. Our server delivered the wine and different courses of our meal to our pace of conversation and made for an excellent night out for two empty nesters looking for a time out away from the house just focused on the two of us.

“Excellent Italian restaurant!!!”
Reviewed 7 March 2009

This was one of the best restaurants in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area. We stayed at the fabulous Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale on March 2, 2009. We didn't want to eat at a chain restaurant so JUDY, the concierge, recommended La Fontanella. The food was home-made and excellent.Great bread, food and wine. Authentic Italian! The prices were good. We especially enjoyed Ray our waiter. We will be back!

“Poorest Excuse For A Fine Dining Experience Available!``”
Reviewed 27 January 2009

I can honestly say I've never experienced a worse dining experience anywhere in my entire life.
The wait staff was rude from the beginning of the meal, and it only went downhill from there. After complaining to the owner Isabella...it became abundantly clear that she had no interest rectifying the situation. All she did was make excuses and lame apologies.
I would be delighted to discuss details of this horrible experience with anyone who has an interest.
Do yourself a favor...drive on by this place and find a "quality" Italian Restaurant!

“Always a treat to dine at La Fontenella”
Reviewed 22 October 2008

I have been enjoying La Fontenella for 10+ years. Always get great service and wonderful food. Never disappointed. You are never rushed so you can enjoy a leisure dinner! The lamb chops are wonderful, pasta is fresh and delicious. Desserts are very good too.
Choose La Fontenella if you want a great meal with a relaxed and pampered atmosphere.
