Best Italian in Charlotte! I must say this place is great! I had the Pork Chops for dinner on Sunday and they tasted fabulous. I definitely will be back. It is wayyy better than Carraba's and Olive Garden.

Crappy service and even crappier food. If you like a hostess with a bad attitude, warm ceasar salad, meatballs tasting exactly like they came out of a Chef Boyardee can and chicken so dry and over cooked that you literally can't cut it

You know, when I saw Restaurant Critic 59's review below, I went through the trouble of registering for this site simply because I had to counter it.

I stumbled upon Fontanella's years ago--so many I'm not sure exactly how long it's been

Went to Fontanella's for a nice dinner Friday evening with my husband, daughter, and sister who was in from out of town. We arrived around 9:30. We asked our server what time they closed and she said 11:00. (website listed 11:30, but we figured we still had time for dinner). We ordered appetizers and drinks and a carafe of wine. We noticed upon arrival there was a group of people at the bar and one behind the bar with a glass of wine in his hand. There was only one other table occupied. We ordered our entrees, were served, and were finishing up our wine at around 10:55 when we noticed the lights went up and music was turned off. A man who we later discovered was the owner came over and very rudely told us it was time to go. My husband, who just finished paying a check for $118 was floored. We are not used to being treated so inconsiderately so my husband spoke up and asked the guy if he was the owner to which the man replied he was. This man's actions were totally uncalled for, and inappropriate toward a paying customer. We told him we would not be back and he called my husband a nobody and stated he did not need our business. We will never step foot in this establishment again and it appears the owner needs to have a few less glasses of wine if he is going to be handling customers.

We've eaten at Fontanella's several times and have never been disappointed! We even chose to have our rehearsal dinner and the staff was wonderful to work with! Fantastic food, plentiful portions, and reasonable prices!

We have been on several occasions and the food is plentiful and tasty. It reminds me of restaurants in New Jersey where I grew up. They have yummy bread, pasta, chicken & veal specialities, and pizza. The ambience is very much like a small Italian bistro with fountains and Italian scenery pictures.

This place has true Italian food! The servers are nice and well rounded. It is a family owned restaurant that has been in business for over 30 years. The owners are friendly and always welcoming. They go completely out of their way in order to please their customers. We were originally waiting at Carrabba's but the wait was ridiculous as usal. So we left and discovered Fontanella's. We were so pleased with the entire experience that my family and I are now regulars at Fontanella's instead. By the way, you must try their desert.

Our group of 10 folks were serviced by a delightful server. The food was hot and well presented after a short wait. The server made sure our drinks were full throughout the meal. A good time was had by all.

We visited Fontanella's for the first time last Saturday evening with about 20 others. They couldn't have been more accommodating, cheerfully re-arranging tables so we could have groups, including a separate table for the pre-adults. The service was wonderful, but the real draw was the food. The seven at our table shared four courses and couldn't have been happier. Personal favorite: eggplant parmesian that was rich but still light and crisp. Savignon Blanc and Chianti by the glass were delicious. Altogether, a wonderful, unhurried meal.
