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.

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
