This is in our neighborhood and away from the overcrowded downtown of Naperville. We thoroughly enjoy the bruschetta when we visit. The husband enjoys the light and fresh lasagna, we also love the fresh gnocchi and minestrone soup. The warm bread basket, butter and oil is something we can never get enough of. They serve beer and wine, but we... More

No longer Fontano's Subs. Now Fontina's Italian Kitchen. We love this place. It's a go-to for our date nights. Start with bruschetta - it's phenomenal! I love the Farfalle Primavera. My girlfriend enjoys the Antipasto Salad. Kind and inviting ownership. Always pleased with the friendly smiles of the employees. Highly recommend for locals and visitors.

I used to order Fontano's takeout a few times a month. Raved about them. Was willing to pay the higher-than-average charge for the pasta because the quality and portions were good. Then the portions got smaller as the prices continued to rise. Took a break... Looking for a throw-back, decided to try them again. Mistake. Minimal portions and watery vodka... More

Not to be confused with the Fontano's Subs chain, this clearly has a different menu and goal. It feels like a place in transition - they're known for subs with a simple service counter, but in reality the kitchen is better than that, and deserves to be a full-service dinner destination. At 5pm they start offering table service, before that... More

Instead of the usually Subway sandwich, we wanted to try gourmet subs. My daughter suggested Fontano's. I've driven by the place many times, assuming it was just a small takeout joint. To my surprise, the place was a full service restaurant. The restaurant portion is in the back. We ordered chicken parmigiana subs. The sandwich was really good. The chicken... More

First time there. The food was fine. No issues with service. Price is typical for the area. $8 dollars for an 8" sub sandwich. Very near a Ford dealership so convenient to eat at when the SUV is in the shop.

A wonderful experience. The store front looks like a take out place, but then there is a room in the back where you can sit and eat. This room is beautifully decorated reminding me of Italy. The food was excellent. We started with bruschetta, which was amazing. I had a salad with chicken and my friends had sub sandwiches. Everyone... More

This Fontano's is franchised I think and not owned by the family. If you are used to the original from the city, the menu is pretty much the same, and is tasty. However, it is not quite there when it comes to the corner store in the neighborhood. Don't get me wrong, the food is good. But if you are... More

Fantastic place for sub sandwiches! Love the meatball sandwich and the godfather sub! Classic Italian dinners and salads! Everything I have had here was very good and keeps me coming back! This is a small place in a strip mall with a counter and small tables in front. The back has larger tables. Take to go or dine in! Friendly... More

I want to try something else but am always drawn to the Roast Beef sub. You can't go wrong with this. Hopefully I will have enough will power to order something else the next time I visit.
