Booked at the last minute and not disappointed. The ambiance was really nice as it is a small restaurant but full of atmosphere - vibrant and classy. The menu was very extensive with a very good and wide selection of specials. Wine was only the house wine but very palatable, better than some expensive 'names' we've had before. The food... More

We are regular visitors to La Fortezza and have always enjoyed good food when we dine here. I was amazed by the negative review recently left. What's wrong with people - there is a good menu choice and a specials board. Different pasta, fish and meat dishes - so why, oh why would someone leave such a bad review stating... More

My partner recently celebrated her birthday party at this venue and it was absolutely fantastic. I would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a close family and friends get together. We did not have a sit down meal on this evening, instead we were provided with a hot Buffett and the messages my girlfriend received the day after from her... More

Called in with friends after it was recommended. How disappointing - dark, cramped, poor staff and an incredibly poor selection of food "available" which consisted of pizza, pizza or pizza!!!! Never again.

Two sittings were available for this Friday night meal. We were seated quickly, wine selection was good and food arrived quite promptly after ordering. The quality of food was high, with a good aroma and taste on the palette. Warm, cozy ambience made the evening enjoyable. Pricing was competitive and affordable. Overall, a very nice experience. I would certainly return.... More

We went here for Valentines Day last year, having walked past it on our many walks around Newmillerdam country park. The restaurant itself sits unassuming at the side of the Dam with great views of the lake in the summer when the outdoor dining opens. The place is small so meals have to be booked well in advance, prices are... More

On Wednesday 5th March we rang La Fortezza to make a booking and was told a table would be available at 8pm. We arrived at 7.55pm to be told that the diners from the previous sitting "at our table" had arrived late and were still eating. We were left standing in the doorway while the waitress sought advice from a... More

I have dined here multiple times and this little restaurant never seizes to impress. Whilst the atmosphere is buzzing and the service fantastic it is the delicious food that keeps me coming back. I have a few personal favourites but I would always recommend to try a dish off the regularly updated 'Specials board' as these really are something special.... More

Before I write this review I'd like to say I have always been a big fan of the restaurant since it's opening back in 2008. We booked to eat here for valentines evening and paid £20 over the phone to secure the booking. Arrived to eat at 20:50 and on entering the restaurant first impressions were that it had lost... More

Lovely service and food - highly recommended. Our visit was for my 30th birthday and must say the whole meal was absolutely gorgeous.
