Review of Fortunato Brothers

Fortunato Brothers
Ranked #11 of 37 Coffee & Tea in Brooklyn
Restaurant details
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Friends who grew up in Williamsburg, took us here a few times after dinner in the area.
The pastries are not only pretty to look at... but pretty amazing all around!
The gelato was really close to what I have had in Italy... and they make a darn good espresso!

This is one of my go-to eateries when I am visiting my daughter in Brooklyn. Terrific coffee and gelato (coffee, banana, blood orange sorbet, etc.). Many local residents stop by, ranging from italian families to hipsters. Open late into the evening. Slow table service, but you can always ask the counter staff for help. Recently, I had to wait an hour to meet my daughter, and spent a very pleasant hour there with coffee and gelato. We always pick up two dozen cookies to bring home, particularly the pignoli cookies. Cannoli and cakes are next on my list.

Went after dinner in the neighborhood. Was what we needed, and were looking for. Wasn't overwhelmed. Cannoli cupcake sounded great. Tasted okay. Eclair and napoleans were good. Lemon gelato nice and fresh. Price was certainly very reasonable. Not sure it's a destination place for me, but if in the neighborhood worthy of a return visit.

Great cappucino and American coffees. The gelato was so good. had the pistachio-real! Not funny green color. My daughter had the mango and blood orange sorberts-excellent.
The sfogliatella and biscotti are authentic! Slow table service, but the place was very busy. Heard customers still speaking in Italian. Nice find in a changing neighborhood.
Give it a try!

The coffee is perfect, done exactly when you are there. The coockies, deserts, pastries, cakes are of an impecable view and a delicate flavor. Most of the time the owners are there and they take care of you. I felt in Italy!
