Fontana Italian Restaurant

Fontana nails the standards, and does so affordably.


Restaurant Reviews

Fontana Italian Restaurant
854 N.W. 12th, Moore

What worked: The service was prompt and friendly in this family-owned bistro.
What needs work: A few inexpensive flourishes would add more appeal to the plain-Jane iceberg lettuce salads.
The tip: Bring your appetite! There is a large selection of traditional Italian-American favorites served in a simple setting.

Irish ayes

You’re in luck if you’re hoping for authentic Irish fare on Saturday.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Elwell
It’s said that St. Patrick drove all the snakes out of Ireland. Except that there never were any snakes in Ireland. And the snakes he said were driven out were attacking him during a 40-day fast which, let’s be frank, could make anybody a bit loopy.

Tannins for tubas

Local restaurants are participating in a wine fundraiser to benefit school music programs.


Food and Drink Features

Greg Horton
The next best thing to learning how to play a musical instrument is drinking wine to help someone else learn to play. E & J Gallo Winery and William Hill Estate have partnered with VH1’s Save the Music Foundation to help restore and enhance music programs in local schools by donating $1 for every case of their wine sold throughout March and April.

Smag 7: Difficult, but delightful

Every week, we give you seven OKC-area restaurants to explore.


OKG7 Dining

Carol Smaglinski
Due to construction in the downtown Oklahoma City area, some of your favorite places might feel a little left in the dust. You might have to navigate the rugged terrain of traffic cones and cracked pavement, but it’s well worth the effort to keep these downtown dandies up and running.

Demo your diet
Eating healthy is much easier than it used to be with plenty of information about balancing your dietary intake and an entire city of support. After a recent million-pound loss, Oklahoma City is seriously overhauling eating habits, and that all starts at home.

Leave the brushes at home; this Picasso is all about eats.


Restaurant Reviews

Picasso Cafe
What works:
Crowd-pleasing menu and service.
What needs work:
I'd like en entrée of pretzels. But that's more my issue.
Tips:
Go at night and get a drink. Hippy Juice tastes like smiles, but will knock you down.

Food and Drink Features

Christina Nihira
Long ago on a desert island, coconut milk was the preferred drink of Gilligan and The Skipper. Today, coconut water is the craze.
