Dinner was a little disappointing as we have eaten there before having just gotten sandwiches and burgers which were very good. The stuffed flounder was bland and on the dry side.

We have been going to Forte for many years and have always had excellent food, with excellent service. John and his staff never fail to go out of their way to make our dining experience enjoyable. May I mention John's hummus is the best!

Decor was nice. Sat next to the bar and smell could not be any more horrid. Mediterranean appetizer was nothing special. The special fusilli with pesto sauce was missing taste and salt. Waiter was not present for refills on our drinks or when we were ready to first order our food. Main pasta dish was filled with oil. Should have... More

Went here with our family of 5. The quality, service and food could not have been better. Immediately the owner greeted us with a friendly smile and seated us right away. The waiters came with our water and took our drinks orders within just a few seconds. One of us wanted a non-alcoholic drink and the owner made a very... More

We live here and always know we can come here and have a great meal, good service and greeted warmly by John the owner. We also know that during the summer, we can come and eat and not have to worry about the tourists filing the place up while we are there. My four year old loves this dinner store!

Haven't been in a while so it was great to see the food and service has remained top notch. I choose a special that included a plate of mussels as an appetizer and steak pitziola with pasta - all for twenty bucks. All was great and so were the cocktails I enjoyed with my meal. Mostly frequented by locals and... More

I am torn between a 3 and 4 rating. First, the restaurant is inside an old house. It was very clean, and just a unique setting. It had old wood floors, stained glass, etc. The bar is on the small side but was great looking. There seemed to be a lot of regulars when we were there, all knowing the... More

Just returned from dinner and wanted to capture my delightful experience while it's the freshest in my mind. Owner/ host john couldn't be more welcoming .... Made us feel very at home and like we were his best patrons. Hummas was a nice way to begin along with a cocktail....service attentive, efficient but not over bearing. Zucchini pancakes app. Enough... More
