Café Fontanella is the place to go to experience unique Southern cuisine and authentic Italian fare in Nashville, Tennessee. Café Fontanella has been in the top 5% of all restaurants in Nashville for quite some time. Just three songs from Downtown Nashville, the café boasts a menu that’s inspired by old-world flavors. We offer a variety of Italian and American dishes with something to satisfy all appetites and please every palate. It’s one of the few Italian restaurants in Nashville where you can relish live music and dinner. We offer live music 7 days a week including Saturday and Sunday brunches.

Discover the fruit of the vine, and the art that goes into its making when you sample a selection of Old World-style wines at the Natchez Hills Winery at Fontanel. As a satellite tasting room for Natchez Hills Vineyard, it is open daily and offers a multi-sensory experience to visitors.

The Mansion, once the home of country music megastar Barbara Mandrell, gives you a glimpse of what it’s like to live like country royalty. No other tour offers an experience like this. The Mansion boasts over 20 rooms, 13 bathrooms, 5 fireplaces, 2 kitchens, an indoor pool, and even an indoor shooting range. Rooms are filled with mementos and memorabilia of the Mandrell family plus amazing memorabilia from numerous other music stars associated with Fontanel…plus interactive tours highlight these visual treats to the ambient sound of country music. You can even enjoy these tours given by some of Nashville finest talent with a beer or water. Our tour guides might even play you one of their original songs. You can also purchase Barbara Mandrell and Fontanel merchandise.

When current owners Dale Morris and Marc Oswald planned for the expansion of Fontanel, they wanted the attractions to blend with the natural setting to encourage guests to connect with nature. That’s exactly what guests will experience during the canopy zip tour; a 90-minute fun-filled exploration of an enchanting forest in the Harpeth River Valley. Whether you’re new or experienced at it, you may choose from a range of heights to satisfy your thirst for adventure. We have zip lines that go up to 85 feet, ranging from 200-700 feet in length. If you crave the ultimate speed thrill, you can ride up to 35 miles per hour with the help of one of our professional tour guides.

The Carl Black Chevy Woods Amphitheater is unlike any music venue around Nashville. This 4,500-seat natural outdoor amphitheater nestled in historic Whites Creek valley features state-of-the-art sound equipment in a cozy wooded setting. The Woods at Fontanel is a must-see (and must-hear!) venue in the greater Nashville area. The venue is also available for outdoor concerts, corporate picnics, 5K runs and other big events.

The Carl Black Chevy Woods Amphitheater is situated on the old estate of country music legend Barbara Mandrell, further rooting the extraordinary venue in music history. The VIP boxes seats are cut out of the hillside, making those lucky enough to occupy a VIP seat feel as if they are in a tree house. With a full-service restaurant, a family-friendly atmosphere, outdoor activities and three plus miles of beautiful trails throughout the property, Fontanel is the hidden gem of the South.
