We spent one night at La Fontana whilst visiting Wantage for a friend's birthday party. We had an early evening meal at La Fontana Italian restaurant before heading out for the evening. Food was good and portions were generous. We also had breakfast the following morning which had a good selection of hot dishes as well as cereal, pastries etc.... More

Enjoyed our stay at the La Fontana, The Hotel rooms and general comfort were of a high standard. Our only complaint, which is probably seasonal, was traffic noise as the evenings were quite hot and we had to open the window! Perhaps little AC units may help. The staff were helpful and friendly, rooms were large with comfortable bed.

We wanted to meet some friends to go to show in Oxford, all the hotels were so expensive and although they looked very good it was more than you wanted to spend on top of a show and dinner. We came across La Fontana on line and took a chance just 25min from Oxford and £60 per room for B... More

Stayed for 2 nights in the family room for a meet up with some friends. Internally La Fontana is really well presented: modern, clean and light. A family run business they offered a very friendly, professional service. The bonus of the visit was the food - really tasty, beautifully homemade and generous portions. Thankfully the tiramisu didn't disappoint either! All... More

We booked a table for ten people recently to celebrate a milestone family Birthday. We had not eaten at this restaurant before but we were extremely pleased with the wonderful service we received.

La Fontana benefits by some major recent refurbishments. the entrance lobby and lounge are beautifully light due to the high proportion of glass. The room was large, clean and very comfortable. The combination of double and secondary glazing provided excellent sound insulation so that the A338 traffic proved to be no problem. Even if you don't use the jacuzzi bath,... More

This was the first time for many years we have been to La Fontana. A lovely atmosphere - relaxed, not rushed but service very attentive. The food was excellent especially recommend the steak - whichever type you choose. Best meal I have had in the Wantage area!

They serve authentic Italian food if you want to steer away from the 'english Italian' food. We've been there a few times and enjoyed it very much! We can highly recommend them for good honest food. They are a family run business and they are all involved in the business
