My wife and I ate here. I ordered the Cioppino and my wife ordered Spaghetti with Shrimp. We felt the seafood was not very fresh and the sauce was a bit watered down and weak. Overall not a great foodie experience but the atmosphere was nice. Coffee outside in the afternoon is great though.

Decided to have Italian food after many German meals. Found this restaurant recommended by Tripadvisor's reviewers. The menu for pizza is extensive. Service was prompt and friendly. Not much option on dessert though. We enjoyed the food thoroughly.

We were in town to have a glance at one of the cities on the "Romantic road" and in search for a place to have lunch we decided to pick this place as it had a nice terrace outside. The restaurant wants to serve a basic Italian cuisine but in my opinion it was pretty far from it. We had... More

The restaurant is situated very near to the main square of Nordlingen. The staff is attentive and helpful, but the top was the best Pizza i had in Germany. For those who want to feel a bit in Italy in the heart of old Germany.

We do come from Italy and our rule is to never go to italian restaurants when abroad to enjoy the local food and culture. However after a week of eating mainly meat we needed a break and decided for La Fontana where we had a drink in the afternoon. Obviously we have a more critical view on the italian food... More

Staff were friendly even though I spoke poor german. The food was delicious and very reasonable. I was raving about this plce to anyone... More

We came here for a warm lunch on a cold day. The prices are reasonable. The atmosphere is relaxed. I wouldn't come here on a date, but it's perfect for an afternoon with friends. The beer they serve is Fürst Wallerstein. The salad is pretty boring, but the pizza is good. They are made in a decent pizza oven and... More
