First Review by Jordana Kennedy

Best meal in Italy! - Edit

We really enjoyed our meal at La Fonte. Wine from their own vineyard, and really creative dishes. The millet melted in your mouth, the soup was delicious, and on and on.

I had seen it on Happy Cow before traveling to Europe, and while in a store nearby it was recommended, with the warning that service is slow. Well, that's the Italian way! Everyone is relaxed, so if you go here just plan on that being the event for the evening. Also, I think it's just the husband-wife team so when it's full (it wasn't when we were there) I'm sure it takes them a bit of time. But it's worth it. The place is beautiful, with interesting art, so just enjoy yourself.

Pros: Food, Atmosphere, Hosts are delightful

Amazing! - Edit

It's a beautiful drive to get here. The location is lovely, the restaurant comfortable and inviting and Silvia is lovely. She was very welcoming and made us feel at home and her cooking was amazing. Home made tofu, seitan, and my highlight vegan tiramisu that my nonna would have enjoyed. :) We will visit again.

Pros: Silvia has been vegan for more than 20 years, ask

Cons: Just a little too far from Melbourne to visit freq

old-fashioned vegan - Edit

I'd recommend this restaurant if you have a lot of time and you do not have a hearing problem. And if you are not too poor.

It took us 3 hours to eat lunch here, and that time was mostly waiting for the food. Could have been relaxing if we knew before or if the acoustics of the room was better so that you could actually hear what your company was saying instead of being drowned by the slightly louder conversation of the italians at the next table.

The food was nice, but not mindblowing and after 3 hours we were pretty much as hungry as we were when we started having the lunch.

The prices were too high actually.

The owner (or staff - don't know which) was very friendly.

Pros: friendly, vegan

Cons: time consuming, small portions, pricy

Nice - Edit

Great location, great food. The homemade seitan is mindblowing, best seitan ever.

Please go there. But to the owner: leave the incense, it's not too great to smell that while eating.

Pros: location, food, owner very nice

Cons: smell of incense

La Fonte - Edit

We had a meal there & the food was excellent. The owners are vegan, so plenty of vegan choices,with the wine from their vineyard which surrounds the restaurant. The only drawback was the length of time it took to have a 3 course meal with wine & coffee:We arrived at 20.20 & left at 23.20 having paid 77 euros for 3 of us.

Pros: Excellent food, Very friendly owners

Cons: Took 3 hours for a meal, Opens after 20.00 except Sundays, Closed Monday & Tuesday
