Was taken to La Fortezza by wife and family for a quiet birthday meal.

We visited with friends for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed the friendly welcome from the staff, the food was gorgeous with very generous portion sizes. We each had 3 courses with wine, there's so much to choose from and they offer gluten free pizza and pasta. Thank you everyone at La Fortezza

It will be everything you expect with absolutely no surprise. So for staters. I had the pate. Very dense but tasty. The ravioli was claggy and... More

I've been here twice now. Absolutely love it when the weather is nice, both times we have sat outside. The food is lovely and the service. My other half had the garlic mushrooms to start with, I will definitely have them next time, the sauce they were in was delicious. We will go again although I think it would have... More
