Casa Fontana Ristorante Italiano

Casa Fontana Surabaya

Casa Fontana - Pizza - Rp 40.000

Casa Fontana adalah salah satu resto Italian yang baru buka di daerah Polisi Istimewa, di daerah ini ada beberapa resto italia yang lebih terkenal, salah satunya La Rucolla.
Untuk harga, sebagian besar hampir sama dengan La Rucolla, tapi untuk pizza nya termasuk terjangkau, bisa dijadikan alternatif untuk yang ingin menikmati pizza di restoran otentik Italia dengan harga relatif terjangkau. Harga pizza di sini sekitar Rp 40.000 - Rp 60.000, sebagai perbandingan, harga pizza di kafe Pisa dengan ukuran setara adalah berkisar Rp 50.000 - Rp 80.000



Casa Fontana is another Italian Restaurant in Surabaya, it gain popularity lately, and rise to the same popularity as it's predecessors like Kafe Pisa and La Rucolla.
The price is mostly smilar with La Rucolla, but they have an edge on the pizza, which are price relatively affordable.
Pizza here costs about Rp 40.000 - Rp 60.000, for comparison, the same sized pizza in Kafe Pisa costs about Rp 50.000 - Rp 80.000.




Casa Fontana - Complimentary appetizer

Untuk mengganjal perut selama menunggu pesanan tiba, disediakan complimentary appetizer, semacam breadstick dan diberi saus pasta tomat. Sempat minta tiga kali tambah karena menunggunya cukup memakan waktu. Walaupun sedikit lama, pelayanannya tetap ok, dan kita sempat minta tambah saos pesto untuk pendamping appetizernya dan diberikan dalam waktu yang cepat.

While waiting for your order to arrive, they'll gave you a complimentary breadstick with tomato paste sauce. Our group was quite the foodie and we asked a total of 3 times for refills, because we were quite parched and the food take a while to arrive. Nevertheless the service was still top notch and when we asked for an extra pesto sauce, they were quick to serve it.

Resto ini termasuk cocok untuk kencan, karena pencahayaannya gelap sekali. Cocok untuk suasana mesra, tapi cukup menyiksa untuk mengambil foto T_T
Jadi harap maklum kalau hasilnya agak-agak kurang, berhubung cahanya super minim.


The ambiance here is really suitable for dating, since it's very dark in here. One of the dimmest light I've ever encountered in Surabaya restaurant.
So that's my excuse if you feel the photos in this post are rather crappy, I blame the lights (lack of) :D


Casa Fontana Tenderloin - Rp 145.000

Casa Fontana Tenderloin - Rp 145.000
Salah satu yang saya cicipi sendiri adalah Tenderloin ini. Menurut teman yang pesan sih enak, kalau hemat saya sih biasa. Untuk harganya yang 145rb sempat berharap lebih.

This Tenderloin is what my date ordered for dinner. She said it's quite nice, while I'm a bit underwhelmed. It's still nice, but expecting something better for the Rp 145.000 price.


Casa Fontana - Mixed Grill
Mixed Grill ini saya tidak ikut pesan, jadi hanya menanyakan pendapatnya ke teman ybs, rasa dagingnya sih tidak masalah, tapi kurang ada rasa, hambar. Sempat curiga kalau dibakarnya tanpa bumbu jadi relatif hambar.
Bisa juga ini masalah selera. karena pengalaman makan di Bali, beberapa resto penyedia steak dan barbeque yang populer di kalangan bule, kalau menurut lidah lokal bakal dibilang amis dan hambar.



This Mixed Grill is what my friend had for dinner, I didn't taste it but I did asked his oppinion. Though the quality of meat is fine, it's a  bit bland. Seems like they just grilled the meat, absent of dry rubs or any sauce to smooth along the grilling process, hence creating a bland dish. This might be subject to local taste vs italian (genuine) cooking though, from my experience eating in Bali, what ranks high amongst westerner in those restaurant review websites would be deemed somewhat unappetizing for the local taste

Casa Fontana - Penne


Mushroom Soup - Rp 79.000



Casa Fontana - Spaghetti



Casa Fontana Ravioli soup - Rp 129.000



Casa Fontana - Ravioli

Keluhan sebagian teman yang makan di sana saat itu adalah menu ravioli dan beberapa pasta selain pizza nya agak tinggi dan porsinya relatif kecil dibanding harganya.
Saya sendiri kebetulan hanya pesan tenderloin dan pizza tersebut (untuk berdua) dan tidak ada yang mengecewakan.


Some of my friend who ordered the raviolis and soup thinks that the price are a bit steep for what they got, portion and quality wise.
While I can't really complain about the my pizza and tenderloin, they were quite ok. The pizza is nice and the price is well bellow the competitor

Casa FontanaOrange Juice

Satu hal lagi yang agak kurang cocok adalah gelatonya. Rasa gelatonya terlalu sederhana, mirip dengan sirup dibuat jadi es. Biasanya rasa buah di gelato sekelasnya lebih lembut dan aromatik. Kalau urusan gelato, kafe Pisa masih menang jauh dibanding di sini.

One other thing that we don't like is the gelato, the gelato tasted to syrupy.
If you really want a good gelato, choose Pisa Cafe instead, it's world apart in quality.

    1. Thx, u're too kind. I think this particular set is the worst so far for 2013. The ambient light and wall (as flash bounce) sucks.

      I used flash on this one, didn't do much good...
