The food was just average. Very $$$ and portions small

Would not go back. Food was just average and very $$$$ for Italian food. Would not mind paying the money for good food but not this food. Really ad disappointment.

Came to The falls area for special birthday trip for my better half and our kids. found this restaurant online and said "nice Italian place" can't go wrong- well, they proved me very wrong ! We did not see our salads until we were sitting at table for over an hour, so we asked for bread 3 times because our... More

My husband and I dined here on August 15, 2015 and we so very pleased. It had been recommended to us by two people we met at Prince of Peace Church and they gave us a wonderful suggestion. We were able to meet the owner/chef, his lovely wife and very pretty daughter. This is a family restaurant that has been... More

This restaurant was highly recommended by lifelong Buffalo residents. Food was ok but not great. Service was indifferent bordering on rude. It's off the beaten path so we had to make a special effort to go there. Not worth it in my view.

This neighborhood Italian restaurant in Little Italy is in my opinion, the best Italian restaurant in Niagara Falls, NY. The homemade soups like their chicken soup are very flavorful and their veal parmigiana is fork tender, generously portioned, and is of the highest quality. Pat was an outstanding server who was very efficient and welcoming. Fortuna's is a true gem... More

Dining area is more like a cafeteria and loud. I had chicken Parmesan and wife had veal Parmesan. Fried Gnocchi for appetizer. Gnocchi was very bland but the real disappointment had to be the Parmesan dinners. WHO puts American cheese on a Parmesan dinner?. Veal and chicken was thin and bland. The sauce was also bland. We both had about... More

Don't let the location scare you away. It is another world inside. Very classy, old Italian restaurant. Perfect for a larger gathering or romantic date. We had a party of 9 and everyone was extremely happy with their dishes (get the stuffed banana peppers for an app)! Everything came out in a reasonable time. The service was very attentive and...

Visited based on reviews and reccomendation from friends. Had the greens and beans and was disappointed with the flavor. Kind of bland. We got to the restaurant later in the evening and felt a little rushed, seemed like they were ready to close and we were keeping them open.

Quiet, out of the way friendly and just plain good food. Feels like a large classy and hard to get into Italian restaurant but it's small friendly and excellent food. The staff know just about everyone that walks in the door. Everyone is a repeat (often) customer.
