About La Fontana Waterfront Grille & Pizzeria
From the Old Country to the Lowcountry, Chef Gary now brings his timeless and authentic Italian dishes to Hilton Head Island. Robert Murray and Chef Gary Langevin are proud to welcome you to La Fontana Waterfront Grill & Pizzeria at Shelter Cove.
The friendship between Bob and Chef Gary is the perfect culinary blend between food, passion, and business. Bob enjoyed a very successful career in the corporate world, which enabled him to travel the globe and also allowed him to enjoy some of the finest restaurants. It was this exposure that led him to eventually follow his passion and become a silent partner for two large restaurants in the New England area. Chef Gary was born with silver sauté spoon in his mouth and marinara sauce in his veins; having started working in his mother’s restaurant at age nine, in Naples, Italy. America has been good to Chef, as he took his family’s tradition of creating fresh and authentic Italian cooking and opened multiple successful restaurants in Charleston, SC. Meanwhile, Bob retired to Hilton Head in 2004; and after one of his frequent trips to Charleston, he met Chef Gary in in 2012, while dining at one of Chef’s restaurants. Needless to say, they hit it off immediately and a mutual epicurean relationship was formed!
Upon returning from a trip to Italy, in April 2013 - which included a stop in Chef Gary’s hometown of Naples - Bob was more determined than ever to start his next chapter as a restaurateur and looked to open his own establishment in Hilton Head. From this, La Fontana Waterfront Grill & Pizzeria was created! In October 2013, Bob purchased Little Venice at Shelter Cove and immediately brought Chef Gary from Charleston to assemble a gourmet lineup direct from Naples, featuring Executive Chef Giuseppe Galone, who came from successful stints in Italy and Miami.
Bob, Chef Gary and their team are excited to provide you with a tremendous experience, based on great food and superior service. From the Old Country to The Lowcountry, La Fontana Waterfront Grill & Pizzeria welcomes you!
