We went to dinner after a very long day at the inauguration. The service was great and the food was better. Classic Italian favorites done well.

I have been to Fontina Grille many, many times. Food is always good. Service is always good and you get your monies worth. I have had the buffet quite often. Also have ordered crab cakes from the menu. I have never been disappointed.

Wonderful neighborhood Italian restaurant. All dishes come with soup or salad and delicious warm bread. Typical Italian menu, but the also have several dishes where you can get vegetables instead of pasta. Reasonable prices. Worth the visit if you are in the area.

...because then I might have to wait for a table! I'm pretty sure once you experience it, you will be like all of us and look forward to going back again. There is definitely a reason that Fontina has stayed so busy the years since they opened - the service is friendly and efficient, the portions are fresh and delicious.... More

This is a nice restaurant with good food. The service was very good. We had the early bird which was 15 dollars and a good value. Mussels were great and you get a LOT of them not just a ton of pasta. Tasty sauce. They have some draught beer.

We were visiting for a soccer tournament and searched Trip Advisor for a recommendation. What a great choice! Food was excellent. We had Sea Bass Risotto, Seafood Pasta and Chicken Pasta. Everything was great. Wine was good and reasonable. Waiter was very attentive. I would highly recommend and go back again and again.

Eat here for dinner frequently. The food is delicious and the service staff is very good. We've never had a bad meal here. All the different menu items we've tried have been good and plentiful. The pizza is very good. The atmosphere is nice with a separate bar area and sidewalk dining area when the weather is nice.

Thank David D
