On this Friday night I thought I'd skip the fish fry and have a nice sit down dinner. I ordered the Shrimp Dinner which arrived with 8 perfectly cooked shrimp. The salad was fine and the bread fresh. The woman at the table next to me had the coconut cream pie for dessert and it looked sooo tasty. I was... More

On 19th and Forest, back in the neighborhoods, you can find Fortunas. Outstanding Italian food, a varied menu (famous for their 'Beans and Greens' appetizer, though their hot stuffed banana peppers are very good too). Very nice atmosphere-this is an upscale place to eat. The servers are very attentive, though not bothersome. The homemade sliced bread is a nice introduction... More

Finally we tried Fortuna's. It is a bit out of the way but I'm so glad we went, it's an older place with very nice staff. It felt old world, nice. We dined on a Friday night at 7 pm and ordered off their pre-fixe menu. Such-A-Deal ! Starting with a glass of vine, a great antipasto salad, then a... More

As a local that's still new to the area I've heard enough negative comments about Fortuna's that I've put off coming here. After all, Michael's and La Hacienda both offer great Italian fare within a hop, skip, and a jump away. But Fortuna's is different. In my mind I envisioned a rickety old tavern with red and white checked tablecloths... More

I have been here many, many times in my life and can say I have never had a bad meal. Service can be hit and miss though. This weekend I actually ended up having dinner there both on Friday and Saturday and both nights were a hit! Friday,gnocchi and meatballs -went with a group of 4 of my friends and... More

We decided to go to Fortuna's because we wanted to try some authenic italian food. Loved it. They had the best chicken and gnocchi soup I've ever tasted. The parmesan haddock fish dish was awesome and my husband had the baked haddock and loved his as well. So glad we tried this restaurant.

Since returning to the Niagara Falls area Fortuna's has been a dinner destination at least once every couple of months. The food is excellent and the servers are always pleasant and helpful. The Greens and Beans are fantastic and I enjoy their sauce much more than many of the other restaurants in the area. If you are a fish person,... More

We have family members who dine at Fortuna regularly - and they were excited to take us there for dinner. We were seated at a dimly lit area of the restaurant so asked to be moved by the windows so we could at least see what we were eating - no problem there. We ordered calamari as an appetizer. While...

I live in the city of buffalo,so Fortunas is about a 30 min. ride from where I live. It is worth every second of the drive. The food and atmosphere make you feel like you are having dinner at a freinds house. Warm and inviting, and the food is fantastic. every thing from homemade pastas to homemade pies the size... More

I've been going here since I was a little kid. As kids we got to pick where we wanted to eat for our birthday, and I always chose here. I still enjoy visiting here. I like it much better than the Como. I tell people, you know a place is good if it is on a side street in a... More
