Four of us had dinner on a Saturday night. Food and service were both excellent. One had a margarita pizza and reported that the flavor and consistency were to his liking. I can't comment on it as I didn't taste the pizza; I was too busy eating my whole wheat penne with broccoli, seasoned with sun dried tomatoes, garlic and olive oil, topped with blackened salmon. I love to cook and this sort of dish is the kind I like to make at home. They did it perfectly, with crisp broccoli, a nice flavor balance, and properly blackened salmon. Another had fettuccine Alfredo and said she was quite happy with it. Lastly, my wife had a Greek salad with grilled chicken. Again, it was enjoyed. Service, once we were seated, was timely, not intrusive, just there when we needed it. Restaurant was very busy and somewhat noisy but we were able to have a lively dinner conversation. The only negative was the at the beginning. We made a 7:00 PM reservation and were not seated until 7:35 PM. Many people were crowding in the entrance way, likewise upset about the wait; however the manager explained to me that Open Table had made too many spots available, more than the restaurant could handle. The manager, whose name I failed to get, comped us with two appetizers as an apology. I really appreciate his efforts. As the Bard said, "All's well that ends well."
This place is a gem. I'm not sure how many people know about Fontina outside of those that live and work in the King Farm community, but it's hands down one of the best Italian restaurants in MoCo. Great pizzas, pastas, and entrees. After coming here for dinner and on weekends for years, only did I recently get to try the lunch buffet, and it was phenomenal. They do take out as well.
Great Italian food and amazing people that work there. Great for having a party. Thank you Fontina Grill for a great service !
