We have been here about a half dozen times or more. The service, food, and experience is always at a high level. This is the place to eat in Sea Isle City. Hands down.

La Fontana coast exemplifies excellent Italian cuisine without selling its soul to the stereotype Italian American heavily Red sauced fare to which many places succumb. The food is clearly prepared with not only talent but love and care. We've been there numerous times and have...More

I was not aware of the special $31 menu and did not see anything on their website about it. Best bet may be to call and ask: (609) 486-6088.
