Very good food! The personal is very friendly and professional. I recommend it

Review №2

Great view, very clean restaurant perfect to watch the sunset with a drink in a quiet place. The pizza wasn’t the best though…

Review №3

The best original Italian pizza and cuisine. Great now the restaurant is on top of the hill built on platform wooden terrace with an amazing picturesque crimson sunset view over the horizon beyond the Tumbatu and Mwana wa Mwana islands.

Review №15

Amazing view and ambience! The food was AMAZING, very big portions.Would highly recommend ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Review №16

Supposed to be grilled chicken but skinny fried chicken ...Horrible

Review №17

Great service, food and moderate prices. Owned and managed by a truly Italian lady and serviced by a great staff. Will definitely come back for another dinner!

Review №18

If you never been to Italy, maybe this place will suit you somehow. But you should know, that theres something wrong with its kitchen.Ravioli with lobster meat: NO LOBSTER TASTE FOUND AT ALL. Just like plain dough. Plain dough for this price? Not for me, sorry. Honestly.Beef Burger: not bad meat, very poor bread. Salad okay.Aperol Spritz cocktail is made NOT FROM WORLD-FAMOUS APEROL, but its cheaper fake. Saw it with my own eyes, as they brough the Aperol completely clear, not coiloured like it should look like. Shame, guys :(One extra star for nice atmosphere inside.You got homework to do, people...

Review №19

Excellent food, welcoming staff and a lot cheaper than the ones attached to hotels. Really chilled vibe (go upstairs!), relaxing music and delicious drinks.Really good staff and the manager is very customer focussed. They happily serve big groups too, without it impacting the smaller tables. Best place I ate in Kendwa :)!

Review №20

The mixed seafood grill is from a different universe. You’d front 300 dollars for the same quality and quantity of food in NY you get here for 25 bucks

Review №21

A great spot to watch the setting sun.

Review №22

Lovely little spot, friendly staff, good pizza, generous portions

Review №23

Food and especially pizza is really good there compared to the other restaurants on north coast of zanzibar, but regarding the drinks - it always take them long time either to take an order or bringing it...

Review №24

If you are near Kendwa and you feel for pizza go to this place. Italian owner with reputation for the best pizza around. Cons - could be little pricy from the other places.

Review №25

Excellent service, great food and a very nice atmosphere. Had a lovely evening and will definitely come back!

Hidden gem!

Review №55

Fantastic Place

Review №56

We rested for 11 days and had lunch and dinner at this restaurant almost every day. Great grilled fish! Excellent staff and cook. Everything was always delicious, but if you are in a hurry to order food in advance, as the Zanzibari people are slow.

Review №57

Very nice terrace in the restaurant with a great view of the sea. Unfortunately, there were very few dishes to choose from and the friendly waitress hardly understood any English. The manager and the cook sat nearby and did not stir an ear. Later another friendly employee came and asked us if we wanted something else. But then we left because it would certainly have taken a long time for everything to be prepared..

Review №58

Excellent quality food and good value for money, a beautiful view but a little slow in the preparations but its worth it

Review №59

Outdoor restaurant with beautiful ocean views. The menu is mainly pizza and pasta, the owners are from Italy, as I understand it. Everything is delicious, the products are of high quality, the portions are large. Pepperoni pizza is my favourite.

Review №60

Stayed at this hotel, loved it! And the restaurant is great too. We ordered seafood: a salad with seafood, octopuses in coconut milk, grilled fish - very tasty, it seemed to us the tastiest here in Kendwa and the portions are huge. Everything is fine in the hotel too - clean, tidy, friendly staff, the only bed seemed not very comfortable, but it will work for a short time.

Review №61

Excellent restaurant that combines Italian tradition with Zanzibari specialties. If you miss, like us, a good pasta dish, La Fontana is the right place! Excellent pizza and lobster ... super! Personally I have not found it expensive ... then it depends what you choose. On average we spent 40,000 to 60,000 shillings (equal to 15/22 euros) in two !!! Great availability, kindness and courtesy of the owners and the guys. A special greeting to Flavia, Manuel and little Francesco and see you soon

Review №62

All excellent, very good cook and perfect decor

Review №63

Lived bungalow of the same name. We had breakfast here every day; all of you are satisfied. One of the most delicious and large portions of seafood soup, but costs 20 thousand. Overall pretty good

Review №64

Initially I wanted to give 5 stars. Were three times - took pizza and juices. The first two times the hostess was very friendly and attentive. The pizza was perfect, delicious, just super! We came for the third time, ordered the same, and received two burnt dry pizzas, even the look and, most importantly, the taste is completely different. As if the normal ingredients ran out and made from what was left. Very disappointed. Very sorry. The cafe itself is pleasant. There is internet.

Review №65

A good place outdoors in the shade of trees, nice music! National institution. The impression is like sitting at home in your yard! Friendly staff, there is a Wi-Fi.

Review №66

Delicious pizza, not a bad option for Zanzibar, nothing more. Clean and cozy, good place to spend an evening.

Review №67

Normal hotel for Zanzibar, air conditioning, pleasant staff attitude! Prices are reasonable, 3 minutes walk to the beach

Review №68

Came on reviews, hoping for European cuisine. Pizza did not like, salad is not very. The burger was not bad. They cook not for long, the atmosphere is pleasant.

Review №69

Excellent dinner they speak Italian, finally a cloth napkin and clean. Good food, great staff.

Review №70

The prices are average, but the portions were the largest of the 3 Kendwa restaurants I visited

Review №71

In my opinion, the establishment is rather weak. The passage to it is generally difficult to find. The pizza is probably good because the pizza maker is Italian. But I didnt try it because I ordered octopus in coconut sauce. It turned out that the sauce tasted like curry. And the raw materials were not washed properly, the sand crunched.

Review №72

Horror, not pizza today. A layer of tomato paste, tomatoes, on the dough. Sour. Pizza pomadoro)). Im sorry who lives and eats there. Not a single pizza was finished. I love Italian food, but today it was trash. Pizza shouldnt be like that !!

Review №73

Good restaurant, good rooms

Review №74

Good 4. There is an interesting location among the destroyed buildings. Tasty, ok for the price, but one problem is sooooooo long, more than an hour were waiting for salads and hot.

Review №75

The pizza was divine! (And already three times))) PS. It was a year ago. Now, after the move, the pizza is being prepared by a local guy and it has turned into an inedible thing without cheese, but generously poured with tomato paste. An abomination, in general. Its a shame, but there is nothing to do there😭The pizza was divine! (And already three times))) PS. That was a year ago.

Review №80

Clean, polite. Panorama of the sea. Not cheap.

Review №81

Lafontana is a very beautiful place and is attractive to visitors and locals as well and is located near the beach so it makes one enjoy the environment and services here lafontanaWELCOMELA FONTANAZANZIBARNO TROUBLE

Review №82

Alternative place to eat at local accommodation facilities. The place is characteristic among nature .. Few places but usually there is room. You eat quite well, but it costs more than eating within your own facility. Mystery ... I thought the opposite .....

Review №83

Great restaurant, good pizzas (relative to Zanzibar)

Review №84

Great food and wide selection on the menu, the best restaurant we have tried here in the area. The staff is very nice and attentive and provides great service. The prices are also not to be despised. In addition, this is a restaurant with a good atmosphere where you feel welcome and well taken care of as a guest.

Review №85

Cozy family hotel with only 11 rooms. Breakfasts are very good for a trio - coffee, scrambled eggs, salad and fruit.

Review №86

Restaurant run by a couple of Italian guys .... what to say about 10 evenings spent in Zanzibar 7 times I ate in this place ... I ate everything ... from typical local dishes ... to fish .. to the pasta ... pizza ... all very good .... one evening I ate a huge lobster cooked in the oven .... absolute goodness .. prices in line with the other restaurants on the island .. greetings to Manuel and Flavia

Review №87

Good restaurant with Italian chef for those who want to feel a little more at home. very clean, the service is good and the menu quite varied.

Review №88

Such delicious food, cold beer. Wine very good !!!

Review №89

The very bad place, the plate of nachos are 10 nachos with a slice of hamburger cheese on top and put in the microwave. Tuna with sesame is not tuna, it is another fish. I do not recommend it.

A wonderful place in the open air, a lot of shade from the trees. The food is delicious, portions are large, prices are average. Cozy, calm

The cook is Italian. The contingent is white. The cocktails are good, especially you need to pay attention to the local fish according to local recipes.
