    Thank you so much for the fantastic meal and warm welcome to your Restaurant. My husband and I, as well as our good friends always stop at LaFonte's for a meal when visiting Gettysburg. The food is superb. Our Host's Mama and Eleonora always treat us well, we feel like family. My favorite is the veal parm. And the coconut cake is to die for, delicious. My husband loves the Martinis. This is a definite stop. Ed, Leona, Warren and Vicki.

    Thank you so much for a wonderful evening. Your food is beyond delicious and we enjoyed visiting with you and your daughter. You truly made us feel that we were in your home having a fantastic meal! We loved how fresh and homemade everything was. I wish your restaurant was in Atlanta! If we are are ever in the area again, we will be by, and we will definitely recommend you to anyone we know coming to visit Gettysburg!

    We always stop at La Fonte when we are out antiquing and are never disappointed. The homemade pasta and items are special. It is food that you expect in Italy, not in central Pennsylvania. Wish it was closer to DC and we would eat there often. Everything is authentic. We know you will keep up the good food and service.

    La Fonte is our favorite place to eat on our travels through PA. The food is always delicious and the ladies are delightful. We wish we had such a wonderful restaurant close to home. Love the soups, pastas and desserts. Authentic and handmade "with love."

    I'm traveling to Virginia from NY to visit my daughter in college and staying over a night to go to the Gettysburg battlefield. I wanted to find something to eat and wasn't really expecting to find anything special. The hotel didn't have many suggestions and those they did didn't sound so good. I just drove East on 30 and ended up in New Oxford and decided to go to the Italian restaurant on Rt. 30 near the New Oxford circle. It didn't look like much but I wasn't expecting much as I didn't know the area at all.

    I certainly wasn't expecting to find one of the best Italian restaurants (well probably the best) that I've eaten in in a long time. The pasta is homemade as is the bread (all made on the premises), many of the vegetables come from their own garden or are organic vegetables from the Amish country. My dish was excellent. the pasta was delicious, the vegetables fresh, the marinara sauce I ordered was also excellent. The bread was great. Everything was very first rate, not what you'd expect in a small Pennsylvania town.

    The service was excellent as well. I left feeling I had spent an evening with friends. Luisa (Mama) the owner and chef and her daughter Eleanora were warm and friendly. Luisa sat with me after my dinner, offering me samples of her tiramisu and one of her specialty cakes. Both were delicious. She even gave me a local apple to take back to the hotel. A true family restaurant.

    They are located in an 1858 house that once was a hotel and apparently served as a place to treat the wounded from Gettysburg. the place is large and atmospheric. Truly a special place. If you're in the area you should eat there.

    Thank you to both Luisa and Eleanora for a wonderful experience.

    Just had the meal of my life and it wasn't even on the menu!! I just devoured the absolute best eggplant parmesan I've ever experienced. La Fonte is truly a gem. Luisa (Mama) and Eleonora are the heart and soul of what can only be considered the epitome of a family dining experience. Great service, exceptional hospitality, and the value added tableside conversation (and pictures if you're lucky!) made for a great evening.

    Thank you Mama and Eleonora for making an out of town National Fire Academy student a meal that makes me wish I was back home. Don't worry, I'll definitely be back!!

    What a wonderful time we had! Greeted by Mama for a 50th anniversary dinner for a party of 18, we were home. From the antipasta through the sambuka, every bite was bellisimo!!!! The tiramisu is authentic, from another galaxy!!! The veal parm you cannot describe. Our party were full of Italians, and even though we have lived in the vicinity most our lives, we never had been there. Rest assure Mama, your place is the ONLY place I will ever have Italian again!!! Ti amo and Grazi to you and your wonderful family.

    We decided to have lunch while we waited for the nearby furniture store to package a chair we had purchased. Being unfamiliar with the restaurants in town, what we did not anticipate was the excellent food, service, and hospitality at La Fonte. We ordered the chicken parm with homemade pasta--along with a house salad featuring Luisa's homemade salad dressing. Everything was freshly-prepared and delicious. Luisa, the owner and cook, and Eleonora, our server, doted on us as well as the other guests at the restaurant. Perhaps the thing that struck us most is Luisa's concern that the food and service be exemplary. She takes pride in her establishment. Eleonora is delightful--friendly and helpful. To make sure that we had the complete experience, we left with one of Luisa's homemade pastries, and we look forward to sharing it tonight. We will return to La Fonte--and will bring friends with us.

    It certainly started like every other day. By 3pm, my wife and I were in New Oxford waiting for my mom to have her pedicure. All at once I said, "I'm really hungry." I never say that --A sure sign that we should probably get some food right away. Not knowing where to go, we decided to head east toward the town center and found ourselves standing in circle backup traffic in front of La Fonte. Sometimes no matter how normal everything feels, fate intervenes. I pulled the car over to the curb and we went in. We were instantly greeted by Eleonora who gave us our choice of tables since we were between lunch and dinner rushes. She was WONDERFUL. We felt like we were part of the family. Then Mama Luisa came out to deliver our bread herself, something the chef almost never bothers to do. I felt like I had just come home. Toward the end of our meal, Mama Luisa and Eleanora came to hang out with us and give us some good "life advice." We were both delighted to have been so readily accepted by these wonderful strangers and sad that we had been missing out on their brand of excellent food, service, and company up until now. Now I can tell by the smells coming from our own kitchen that today's leftovers are ready for dinner and a magnificent dessert comes after that! Thank you, Eleonora and Mama Luisa for MAKING OUR DAY!
    PS: My mom gets her next pedicure on the 25th of April. We'll see you then!!

    Your food is delightful and in abundance, with an old world style and elegance. The most important ingredient of all species that goes into your cooking, food and service is 'Love'. Its a priveledge to bring seminarians who are studying for the priesthood from Mt. St. Mary's Seminary, Emmitsburg MD to expereince such "a touch of class" with a family atomsphere into your restorante!

    Thank you Mama Luisa and Eleonora for an exceptional dining experience. Your food was delicious and authentic. Wow, such big portions! Your personal touch of introducing yourself to us and finding out about our visit to the area was so nice. You don't get that type of attention in most dining out situations. If we decide to relocate to the area you can bet we will be regulars.

    We stopped in for dinner by chance but we where quickly made to feel right at home. Mama Luisa came out of the kitchen to say hi and share wonderful stories with us. The food is fabulous. We live in South Carolina or we would visit at least once a week. La Fonte is on our list to visit on our next trip that way. Wishing Mama Luisa and Eleonora good health and happiness!

    We wandered into La Fonte on a Wednesday night after 8pm. It was empty, but we had a wonderful meal, and got to chat with Mama Luisa and Leonora. We learned about making the red sauce (no garlic! no oregano!) and tasted her excellent desserts. If we lived anywhere nearby (we live in Texas) we'd go back every week!

    We stop here every time we go to York. EVERYTHING I have even had here has been delicious. I only wish we lived closer. Tonight's Penne Pasta with Gorgonzola sauce was amazing. As always dessert was wonderful - Orange 3 Milk Cake. Each time I come here they make us feel like family. Luisa is a wonderful person and such a great cook! Service is always great. Do not leave without dessert - even if you must take it home. Thanks Luisa for such a wonderful evening.

    I visited your restaurant today for the first time.I was most impressed with the friendliness of Mama Luisa and Eleonora. I loved Luisa's vinagrette with my fresh,crisp salad and the stuffed eggplant with a generous side of pasta was fabulous! And Eleonora's peppermint candy was a sweet after dinner treat. I plan on becoming a "regular" at La Fonte!!

    We have been going to Luisa's since she opened. We have friends from Annapolis who join us frequently. They would rather go to LaFonte than Little Italy. Luisa's vinagrette is fabulous and Easter wouldn't be Easter without one of her delicous three milk cakes. Thank you Luisa and family.

    I've lived in Rome for 12 years and it was a thrill to get the chance to eat pasta "fatta in casa" ... i.e. home made pasta made on the spot and with that wonderful, distinctive taste that cannot be faked and is so difficult to find int he U.S. I highly recommend the restaurant to anyone who wants to experience real Italian cuisine. Grazie mille!

    Feels like home with Luisa's hospitality and excellent food. Large portions to satisfy the hungriest diner. Always happy when we can snag a table in the dining room near the fireplace. My favorite is the lasagna, always made fresh, and her 3-milk cake is outstanding! Hugs to you, Luisa and Eleanora!

    We agree with all who have highly complimented Mama Luisa's cooking and the service provided by her daughter Eleonora. We have eaten in Italy, and the food here is definitely AUTHENTIC and delicious. The crab cakes were huge and the fettucine bolognese was fantastic! The tiramisu was the perfect ending to an outstanding meal. We will absolutely return at our next opportunity. If you haven't eaten here yet, you are missing a real treat.

    La Fonte is the perfect place to eat after a long day of antiquing! The atmosphere is clean, nicely decorated and the food is amazing--easily the best lump crab cake sandwich I've ever eaten. Mama Luisa is not only a terrific cook, but she made us feel like we had known her for years. If you are ver passing through New Oxford, I highly recommend La Fonte. You won't be disappointed!

    Words are not enough to truly describe the outstanding, fresh, home made food and the warm, wonderful hospitality you are certain to get when you eat here! The best experience we have ever had at a restaurant in every aspect! And you absolutely MUST save room for dessert! The Tiramisu was THE best I have ever tasted! You won't be disappointed no matter what you order! We can't wait to go back!
