Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! I went there just recently with a party of 18. The service was great the food was outstanding! Everything was home made. For a party of 18 and have no one disappointed I think that is great! If you are a fan of truly homemade gnocchi this is the place to get them!

Our reservation for a party of 4 was for 7 PM. Unfortunately, our experience at your restaurant Friday the 3rd was very unpleasant. Although your food and service were excellent; these were greatly overshadowed by the total lack of ambiance in your restaurant that night. As a result, we left the restaurant after dinner very disappointed and stressed. Specifically, the problems were encountered were as follows:

-Our reservation was not on the books even though we had gotten a confirmation phone call. Although your hostess penciled us in for a 7 PM seating, this was the second time our reservation had not been recorded.
-We had to wait in a long line for a half-hour before we got seated. You had a number of large parties to be seated and waited on.
-The noise level in the restaurant was horrendous, mainly because of the large parties you were serving.
-Seated next to us was a guy with a toga type shirt (no sleeves and wide-open front). I found it offensive to have to eat my food while seeing someone with his nipples showing. Fortunately, he did not have hair on his chest.
-Also while eating I had to observe a take out customer with bare, dirty feet standing in the restaurant waiting for his take out. He should have been made to wait outside.
-Your hostess had allowed a party of six to enter the dining area and stand behind our table. They were upset about not being seated and talked loudly behind our table as they searched for and commented on tables that might soon be theirs.

My party of 5 had a 6 pm reservation on Fri evening of Labor day weekend. Waitress was pleasant but we were rushed through the meal until I finally left with indigestion. I literally had my fork in hand several times when the help tried to remove my plates. To their defense signs were posted in various locations stressing that patrons are NOT to overstay their visit. They really enforced it!

The food was good but mine was not out of the ordinary. I had cheese ravioli which was tasty but I certainly was not stuffed. I had also ordered a salad. Not worth the price of 21.95 for entree. Several of us ordered the special which was ok.

Other members of the party were satisfied with their entrees but the rushed atmosphere ruined our evening. NEVER AGAIN.

Always fabulous. We love the cozy interior, impecable service and world class food.
Entrees are substantial in size. They always use fresh ingredients and have several special per night. Deserts are scrumptuous!
Typically they open in April and close by Nov. 1st.
Call for reservations.
Parking is ample, just across the bridge between Strathmere and Ocean City, NJ. We return year after year.

La Fontana Del Mare is one of the Jersey Shore's hidden treasures. Located right outside of Ocean City, NJ in Strathmere, NJ. Sitting right on a small beach is this wonder of a resturant. This is a fine dining enviroment, wonderful lighting, and amazing Italian food. Not easy on the wallet, but definatly easy on the taste pallete. A delightful place to get dinner.

PROS: FOOD, Location, BYOB
CONS:
