“In search of the best Italian Cold Cut Sub”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I cut out a list of the top ten great italian cold cut subs from the Balto Sun several years ago. Fortunato Brothers was on there at #3 (actually, I think they were in alphabetical order). So I ordered the 8 onch italian cold cut with the works, no mayo, just oil and vinegar. The sub was very good and filling. The "innards" of the sub were what made it. Just enough to fill the roll. I would have given it a "great" rating but I thought the roll was nothing special. It was good and fresh and didn't take away from the meat and cheese but didn't really add anything to it.

“Wow! The Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2011

This eatery is absolutely wonderful. I have addicted not only my family, but my co-workers. Try the pizza, subs and pasta but reserve a special place in heaven for the pepperoni rolls. I'm salivating just thinking about it. The service is fast and efficient and the phone -in orders will be ready when you arrive. My favorite.

“Not sure when the other reviews were last written but in November 2011 I did not like Fortunato Pizza.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

Not sure why this place got such rave reviews, I did not like the pizza. Unless you order a full pizza, the slices on the counter look like they had been there ages. Also, the person at the register who takes your money also touches some of the slices and dough and other ingredients that are added to the pizza without putting on gloves. Hygiene is top on my list of priorities for food.

No authentic Italian influence is connected to this place and the reviews and "Best in Baltimore" title are years out of date.

“Excellent take-out pizza place when you're willing to spend a little more for quality and taste.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2011

Not a national chain restaurant and the taste is superior. We order out at least three times monthly. Not designed for dine in at this location.

“Best NY-style pizza in Baltimore/Towson area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2009

Fortunado's has great cheese slices that are particularly superior when eaten at room temperature. Exact proportions of dough, sauce and cheese. Their pasta-stuffed sicilian is very good - too. The slices are slightly better than Pasta Mista - although Pasta Mista's sicilians are slightly better.I have only tried a couple of their other dishes - which were good quality, good portions. My experience is that the staff is actually very friendly - much friendlier than its North Baltimore/Towson peers.

I have tried Matthew's pizza - always rated #1 - Matthews is a different kind of pizza all together - not a NY style. In my opinion, overrated, but again its what style you like.
