    Lovely setting. Restaurant was full and busy however remarkably quiet. Food was excellent quality and servings generous. Wait staff were prompt and friendly. Would definitely recommend for small or large group. A stand out restaurant in this area.

    Read the reviews and saw that there were a lot of 9 & 10’s. Thought this can’t right, but after today’s lunch they are all correct. Place is fantastic.

    What a beautiful setting in the country. We had the lunch special the food was excellent. We were a party of 5, shared a calamari for entree then I had the slow cooked lamb and tiramisu which was really lovely. Everyone was happy with everything, the meal sizes were good for lunch Mary our waitress was very attentive and nothing a bother to her. We will return.

    I have been here twice in the last 6 months, and intend returning. Very reliable food, good quality, good, unobtrusive service. Good choice for everyone on the menu, and my coeliac friend was well catered for.

    Delicious food, service a bit slow, and wait staff not particularly animated, though not unfriendly or unhelpful. . Tables have a sticky lacquer finish, which doesn’t feel very nice. Glasses were sticking, as were arms when resting on the table. Nice Christmas tree.

    Food was excellent with a huge rap for the char grilled brocholini. Manager was very generous in providing a complimentary drink due to a slight delay in service. Added bonus for our 21st wedding anniversary

    Fondata is one of our 'go to' places - food is always consistent and the atmostphere is lovely. They have the best arancini ever! Highly recommended for dates, friend catchups and celebrations :)

    The restaurant has an incredibly gorgeous view of Dandenong Hills. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Although the menu is limited but I still find it interesting. I loved my main course the most, unfortunately the dessert was a disappointment as it wasn’t as good as last year - 2018. I ordered the exact same thing but the chef this year - 2019 didn’t do a good job because he used cheaper ingredients. The lighting makes the atmosphere very romantic and warm but it’s definitely not great for taking photos.

    What a delight! I lived locally and visited the old Wellars many years from the 1990s through to 2011. Returning today, we were treated to amazing service, food and the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The renovations are fantastic and the new team and owners have brought the class back with Fondata 1872, just as it was in the early to mid 90s. Loved it - we are coming back!

    The staff were friendly and service was professional. Our mains were substantial and delicious. Desserts were outstanding. I enjoy perusing the changing wine by the glass list. Love this local!
