Went here on our last night in Bologna and loved the fact that it was in a quiet area and the other customers were locals. The bread was the best in Italy, crispy bread rolls with soft centres...delicious! All our meals were very tasty. We ordered the Meatballs and Torteloni alla Zucca which were outstanding and both on the specials menu. I had the Melanzane Parmigiana which was beautifully cooked and so creamy in texture. To finish we all had the Panna Cotta which was magnificent. Meals were reasonably priced and very good quality. We were disappointed at the very small serve of wine in the glass for €5, but apart from that, would highly recommend this restaurant.

The service was good, and the meat and pasta courses were amazing, however the lack of variety for dessert was disappointing.

Simply beautiful. We stopped off in Bologna in search of some tasty ragu and we were not disappointed by La Fontana. It was spectacular. If only we were a little hungrier we would have had a second bowl. The puddings were also amazing, the panna cotta was to die for and the pistachio semifreddo was delicious. The service was fantastic, warm and welcoming. The next time we are in Bologna we will definitely come back and try all the other gems on the menu.

Terrific menu options range from the traditional to elevated versions of the traditional. We loved our food as much as anything we had in Bologna during several weeks in the city.

Great place for anyone trying to get authentic italian dishes while getting away from the tourist traps, service was excellent and very accommodating when it came to explaining items on the menu. Little off the beaten path but surely worth it

Delicious Bolognese food on a quiet street with friendly, patient service for non-Italian speakers. The food was very rich, if a tad salty. I enjoyed the gramiglia with sausage and the rabbit with potatoes, while my husband ate the signature pasta 'La Fontana' (green egg noodles with tomato, onion, and prosciutto) and the 'La Bologna' secondi (fried pork cutlet covered in Parma ham and Parmesan cheese). The waiter gave us time to digest so we could find room for some strawberries with marscapone and coffee. The offer here for an early reservation saved us a decent amount. I wouldn't recommend this as the only meal you have when visiting Bologna, but it's a solid choice if you're in the neighbourhood.

Piacevole scoperta a Bologna! Piccolo ristorante dallo stile moderno e curato. Molto buoni i taglieri, serviti con vari panini appena sfornati (squisiti!) Primi non abbondanti ma ricercati e ben conditi. Con i caffè ci hanno offerto delle ottime meringhe. Consigliato!
