I've never been disappointed at Forte's. The entres are so big you'll eat twice. They have the best pasta e fagioli soup I've ever tasted. I even serve it to the relatives who were born in Italy. No complaints and no leftovers!

We had a nice dinner here, not the best ever.....but ok. BYOB for wine, which helps make it reasonable. Meals are a bit pricy, Food/Service ok.

good selection of already made pizza to grab for a quick lunch or dinner. unfortunately, they often tend to burn the bottoms of the pizza. i have had other food there besides the pizza, and its been pretty good.

If you want great Italian food this is a place not to miss. I had the Scungilli Marinara. It was great and had more conch then any fritter I had in the Bahamas. Bring your own wine was my only complaint. Great selections of seafood including Chilean Sea Bass.

Ate on a Monday night and it was very quiet so service was attentive and prompt. I chose a special of flounder stuffed with crabmeat $27 and it was well cooked and a tasty stuffing and ok sauce for a family style restaurant. The veal piccatta $19 was slightly tough with an ok sauce. The other fish special $29 looked... More
