Always a welcoming and charming place to eat. The food is first class and freshly cooked. Wait staff are attentive and polite, not intrusive. Great for a family dinner, date or a supper any time.

We love hearing that our customers enjoyed their food and that they enjoyed their time spent at Fontina. It is because of customers like you that we are in business and the positivity in your review is... More

After reading the positive reviews two of us had dinner at Fontina and were not impressed with the food or the service. My partner ordered the Chicken Gorgonzola but could not finish eating more than half the meal which was just acceptable. I ordered the Lobster Raviolis and they barely had any filling. I could not taste any lobster inside... More

We always aim to provide excellent service and tasty food to all our patrons, and it seems this was not the case for you and your partner. I sincerely apologize for that and... More

One of my favorite restaurants in Pleasaton right now, their salmon is always cooked to perfection. For dinner the Blackberry Salmon is the best!

I have been to Fontina Ristorante each time I have come to Pleasanton for the past four years. The menu is well rounded with a great variety and the staff is excellent.

It was Saturday night of Labor Day weekend and we decided to walk down Main St., looking for a decent looking place that had a table available. They found us a table inside (it has sidewalk dining, but was a bit breezy for us). I had the salmon special, which was en croute, but with thinly cut and crisped potato... More

Hello Sierra, We are so very happy to have had you and your wife join us at Fontina over Labor Day Weekend. The salmon special over polenta is one of our specialties that we frequently serve and, as you mentioned..... its a combination that works well.

Dined outside, very relaxing, excellent service, perfect spacing between courses. We had the calamari appetizer, 2 house salads, the filet & prawns, the seafood risotto and 2 glasses of La Storia petit syrah ~ no room for dessert😉 Our server was Farhaad, and he was fantastic!

Hello Jennifer, We at Fontina always pride ourselves in providing a good dining experience thru good service, delicious food, and good company. The calamari appetizer is always a GREAT way to start off a meal - it is a very different and, in my opinion, tastier version of the usual calamari that most people are used to having. You chose...

We are sorry that not being able to use coupons during your last trip out to Fontina made it that displeasurable. Like most sit-down restaurants, coupons and deals that we provide are only valid for "dine-in" patrons. We are sorry this was not explicitly stated on the coupon. We will try to correct that in the future. Thank you for... More

Took the advice of a friend and visited this restaurant for lunch. Really quaint spot with a great menu and wine list. The blackberry salmon on polenta cakes were awesome.
