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.

This is an amazing little Gem! It's off the beaten path, doesn't look like much from the outside but wait till you walk it! It's glamorous, I'd eat in the men's room it's amazing. Great attention to detail when it comes to the cleanliness, presentation and flavor. It's a classic family business in all the best sense. The menu tells... More

We stumbled on this restaurant while visiting Niagara Falls, Ont. (what would we do without smart phones) ... we were a little taken back by the neighborhood at first but the lot was packed and so we decided to try it. Sooo glad we did! Very good food, good service, good wine (owners choice, Cantele Primitivo) and the stuffed banana... More

We went here on cold December Sunday at noon when it had just opened. We were the only customers for a while and the restaurant was chilly, but warmed up quickly. Our server was very friendly and gave us all the information we needed for the prix fixe menu from a coupon we purchased online. We ordered a stuffed pepper... More

Options were scarce, so we decided to try Fortuna's not realizing it is meant to be fancy. Well from the host who greeted us with confusion as to why we were there (umm usually people want to eat when they go to a restaurant), to the waitress who did not hide her distaste to our ordering the cheaper items on...

Always come to Fortunas when I come home to Western New York. I started coming here over fifty years ago with my parents and it's still outstanding. It's got everything : great atmosphere, great service, extensive menu, great and affordable wine list, great food and appreciative owners. Can't go wrong here.

At least 2 times a year, my wife and I travel to Niagara Falls, New York for shopping at the outlet malls. Our ritual is to have a nice Italian dinner at Fortuna's Restaurant. Fortuna's Restaurant is located or nicely tucked away on 19th. Street just a block or so off Main Street. I believe that Fortuna's is a family... More

Went for the first time with friends who have been going there for 45 years. Great meal and great service, quiet atmosphere. Loved the Veal Parmesan it was so good and the homemade pasta and sauce is delicious. Portions are big, I brought half of mine home. The bread they serve with the meal comes from Portage Bakery, where I... More
