Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Best sunset view in Kendwa, and also best food. Topical dishes and also delicious Italian cuisine, made by an Italian chef. They also offered a night with local music and local food, that we experienced and loved it.

The staff at the restaurant were super friendly and helpful. I personally think the food was decent. Nothing out of the ordinary, but fine. The place has a fantastic view of the ocean and nature. They also have cats that occasionally come and say hello, really cute. Definitely worth a visit 😇

We ate at La Fontana several times during our stay - breakfast and dinner - and it was fantastic each and every time. Super fresh fish, incredible fruit, delicious sauces (not just Italian but Swahili, curries etc), generous portions, beautiful setting and everyone so super friendly! Loved it.

We were a group of 12 people from Slovenia and everybody was delighted with what they ordered but the pizza was the best I tasted except in Italy. Excellent service as well. 100% recommended.

After reading all the positive reviews about this restaurant we decided to take a taxi and to have dinner there. I’m very afraid to say I was disappointed about the pizza quality. Really nothing special, the dough was a bit tasteless and seems more like a bread base rather than pizza one. My husband got the fritto misto that was nothing special again. From Italians owners I would have expected much better cuisine to be honest. Real shame as the service was friendly and efficient and the ambiance funky and nice.

We both had the pasta carbonara and it was very tasty. Some people of the staff could be more friendly, and maybe smile sometimes instead of moody face. Although the pasta was good!

I could eat at La Fontana everyday if it wasn't because I was on a budget. I have been living in Kendwa for a couple of months, and every time I visited La Fontana the food was on point! I have tasted a lot of different pizzas throughout my life around the world - but I will DEFINITELY miss the pizza from La Fontana! The pizza crust is just made perfectly! Not too thin, not too thick - just perfect! And I will highly recommend their Nutella pizza omg.... that pizza is soooo goood!! And also the chicken soup is very tasty. Their Mixed salad, and the Avocado salad with calamari scewers is very delicious too if you're the healthy kind of type as it is not always easy to eat healthy in Zanzibar. This is a very nice and cozy restaurant to visit with family and friends, but during the high season I think it will be better to book a table as the restaurant was full during the whole evening because of it's popularity and the quality of the food. This is a place where you get value for money indeed!

I went to this small and very cozy restaurant with a large group of friends. We had heard about the pizza from some expats, and we decided to check it out. We ordered different pizzas to try out the selection from their menu. I ordered the sea food pizza with parmesan sprinkled on top the dough was crisp and the seafood was just amazing. Service was prompt and all of us had a great time here. We will be back soon !!! Asante sana.

Excellent pizza, and excellent rice pilau too! The place is cozy and comfortable. Service doesn’t take too long. Located in the little village next to Kendwa Rocks.
