Lovely.

Had a lovely meal here after a nice walk round New Miller Damn and we were both very impressed. The portions are a very good size, well presented and most important the dishes are full of flavour. The restaurant is small but I think that just adds to the atmosphere. The staff are very friendly... read more

We have been about 4 times now and every time we have been amazed!!! This time I had corn fed chicken in a creamy white wine sauce, wow it was delicious!!! My husband had a ribeye steak from the specials board and it was that big he could hardly eat it, it was cooked to perfection and melted in your... More

Pre booked a table & Champers for our 40th wedding anniversary. Could not have gone any better! Excellent coms when booking, nothing too much trouble. Wonderful food & good service. As I said, it was a special occasion, spent around £200, so maybe that's why we got good service......

Visited here on Saturday night with my girlfriend for our anniversary. As soon as we got there they only had one menu to share between us, it took 10 minutes for them to come and take a drinks order and a further 10 minutes for a food order, however the food did come out quite fast. Many of the older... More

My chicken risotto starter was not bad. Good flavours and a large portion. Service was efficient, professional and polite. The atmosphere was typically Italian - plenty of buzz. The tables are quite crammed into the a small area but I suppose this does help to provide a lively ambience. However, the experience was severely tarnished by the horrible quality of... More

I took my two children for an enjoyable meal in a great location. The menu was interesting with Veal dishes and lots of pizza and past options. I would say it is average priced for good quality and nice proportioned meals. The one criticism is that there were two female bar staff/waiters but they always had there heads down so... More

In my experience, you normally pay a little more to eat in an Italian restaurant; La Fortezza is reasonably priced for such a nice location. It's such a small restaurant that there is always a nice buzz whenever you go here as generally the place will be full. The staff are attentive, the decor is lovely and the food is... More

Visited today for an early evening meal. Very nice food, interesting menu. Had a starter and a main course. Generous portions and all very tasty. Service fast and friendly, we were the first ones there, but made to feel at home. Reasonably priced. Will definitely eat here again.

Just enjoyed a lovely 3 course meal with family for a birthday celebration. Food was excellent and so was the service. We've visited this lovely place several times now and it's never failed. Would definitely recommend.
