Great home cooked meal. Family run business with a taste of the old country. Reasonably priced and family friendly.

We went here for an early lunch, found this place on TA with good ratings. We were the only ones in the place (was early) and Mamma Luisa waited on us and told us all about the ingredients and how the food was made. We both had a meatball sandwich and it was probably the best meatball sandwich I ever... More

My husband & I have been to La Fonte many times, and I will say we have never been disappointed! Tonight we were there around 5:00. We were seated & waited on quickly. I can't seem to get away from the gnocchi & meatballs but my husband tried a new dish (for him) called shrimp fra diavolo. It was a... More

The service was wonderful and the owner and daughter were very friendly. The restaurant was clean and welcoming. Sometimes I feel uncomfortable eating or drinking at a bar that dirty but the first thing I noticed when I walked in was that the bar area was very clean and it wasn't cluttered. The lemon meringue cake and tiramisu was phenomenal.... More

Mamma greeted us personally and let us know what her recommendations were for the evening. She and her daughter treated us like family and and the food was exquisite!

We never order from the menu because Mama always comes out from the kitchen and tells us what is the best of the day. We take her suggestions and are always pleased. Cosmos are awesome but kind of small for the price. We are regulars!

We dined here because the reviews suggested it was one of the best restaurants in town and we didn't want to drive back to Gettysburg after a long day. I regret not driving back. The restaurant does have some charm--mostly in the form of the mother (Luisa) and daughter pairing that own the place. As many reviewers have noted, Luisa... More

We stopped here because we wanted a few drinks after a long drive. Sat at bar, had snacks and drinks, no dinner for us. Clean and inviting. Would recommend and return.

This is close to Gettysburgh, Pa. We passed the restaurant and decided to stop for dinner. Pleasant surprise. Mamma Luisa came out of the kitchen to speak with us and made recommendations. Atmosphere was warm and friendly, service was quick and friendly and food was great. Felt like I was in a friend's house. Since we were in Gettysburg to... More
