Fontina Grill has always been our local favorite Italian restaurant. They have traditional Italian dishes that are always fresh and tasty. Their prices are very reasonable for most dishes (the $12-$20 range) with an included salad. They have an excellent seabass spring dinner salad that is very tasty and reasonably priced at $16.90. Their cioppino is one of their most... More

Recently visited on a Saturday afternoon--food and service both excellent. Fettuccini with meat sauce is great--rich and creamy, not overloaded with tomato sauce like most restaurants. Highly recommend.

The food at Fontina Grille is delicious. There is a huge variety of dishes and they also offer whole wheat and gluten free pasta.

I ate with a business associate and our food was great. The service was good but not perfect. I had chicken Alfredo and Cesar salad both were great. Atmosphere was very low key and quiet.

I live nearby, and it is the go-to place if I want a good dinner and not pay an arm and a leg. There is an early bird special including soup or salad and a dessert. The portions are adequate and frequently my wife and I share an entrée to control our own eating habits. Also have a very good... More

We came here for a Valentine's Day dinner. There were plenty of other people who had the same idea, because the restaurant was completely full on a Tuesday night! The service was pretty good and the food was delicious. We'll definitely be back.

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.
