This place is ok... but i brought some coupons last time i went and they wouldn't allow me to use them unless i ate at the place. didnt say it on the coupons. Won't be back after that...

1 Thank Craig M
Brix510, Owner at Fontina Ristorante, responded to this review

We are sorry that not being able to use coupons during your last trip out to Fontina made it that displeasurable. Like most sit-down restaurants, coupons and deals that we provide are only valid for "dine-in" patrons. We are sorry this was not explicitly stated on the coupon. We will try to correct that in the future. Thank you for... More

Took the advice of a friend and visited this restaurant for lunch. Really quaint spot with a great menu and wine list. The blackberry salmon on polenta cakes were awesome. They do not skimp on the portions. If you love Tiramisu like I do, it was the best I've had. They make it in house and it is very light... More

Hello Iris, We are grateful for the kind words in your review. Like many restaurants, we strive to provide a tasty menu and pair it with a good wine list. Your choice of blackberry salmon with polenta cakes is one of our best sellers, particularly on warm afternoons as was the case yesterday. The Tiramisu is, as you mentioned made... More

Awesome Italian food! I always get the Fish Risotto! Highly recommend. Friendly staff and quick service. I tend to get my order to go as I am traveling on business, but it is always crowded when I go there.

On New Year's Day, my wife and I decided to try Fontina because a) it was one of the only restaurants open and b) it was full of people. After dining there, it was clear that it was only full of people because it was one of very few restaurants that were open that day. The slow, sloppy service combined... More

Good selection of Italian food and a good choice if you want a filling dinner and fast service. We enjoyed the restaurant--four visits so far.

The meals were very good and the service was excellent. The server gladly split our meal because the servings were so large. We'll probably be back!

I visited this place with a huge group of friends and kids. They were kind enough to accommodate us all and the active kids. The food was very delicious and so is the service.

I've been eating at Fontina for the past 8 years. I've tried plenty of other Italian restaurants in Pleasanton (including all the others located on main street) and Fontina continues to be my favorite place for Italian food in town. Their sandwiches, salads, Sunday brunch dishes, and dinner pastas and entrees are all delicious. I have never had a bad... More
