Went with my wife and another couple. Entrance and pre-dinner ordering area very much improved over last visit - obviously spent money making it more up market. Dining room a bit soul-less. Starter very good (calfs liver, Whitebait/Squid). Main Courses not too bad either - mainly steaks (various sauces - chilli-variant very good). Service was let down by too few...

Excellent dinner - beautiful calves liver and also home made pasta parcels with a lovely tomato sauce made with fresh tomatoes. All finished off with Afogato- ice-cream and amaretto! We will be back ... really delicious.

We were in the area for a bike race and this place is perfectly located. We stayed here last year and remember it being good so we returned. The rooms are a good size with a large bed. The room has a Jacuzzi bath with a showerhead in it. There isn't much to do in the area but there is...

To celebrate a family birthday we decided to try this restaurant which seemed to have pretty good reviews. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and orders were taken in a separate area which had little atmosphere. Unfortunately this was continued when moved to the main restaurant area - it was all a bit soulless. A large selection from the...

Family run hotel that is great value with authentic home cooked Italian food that is constantly of high standard. Rooms are spacious and have all facilities you require. Good location near A34 for Oxford and base to explore surrounding areas

We spent one night at La Fontana whilst visiting Wantage for a friend's birthday party. We had an early evening meal at La Fontana Italian restaurant before heading out for the evening. Food was good and portions were generous. We also had breakfast the following morning which had a good selection of hot dishes as well as cereal, pastries etc....

Enjoyed our stay at the La Fontana, The Hotel rooms and general comfort were of a high standard. Our only complaint, which is probably seasonal, was traffic noise as the evenings were quite hot and we had to open the window! Perhaps little AC units may help. The staff were helpful and friendly, rooms were large with comfortable bed.

We wanted to meet some friends to go to show in Oxford, all the hotels were so expensive and although they looked very good it was more than you wanted to spend on top of a show and dinner. We came across La Fontana on line and took a chance just 25min from Oxford and £60 per room for B...

Stayed for 2 nights in the family room for a meet up with some friends. Internally La Fontana is really well presented: modern, clean and light. A family run business they offered a very friendly, professional service. The bonus of the visit was the food - really tasty, beautifully homemade and generous portions. Thankfully the tiramisu didn't disappoint either! All...
