    Ate here as a family, my youngest was 12, and we all enjoyed our meal. Portions are not overwhelming, may be somewhat small. It is a little pricey and kids may have a hard time finding something they like. Our server was excellent, could not have been better. My wife had the pan fried chicken, my son the forte flatbread, and i the filet, each was very tasty. Overall a great evening.

    Menu options including appetizers and entrée were very good. Two of our three selections were wonderful. The swordfish was not up to standards we'd expect. Small, no flavor. Chicken Marsala and fish of the day were wonderful, nice but not excessive portions. Our server, Noor, was excellent and made up for any deficiencies. Very attentive, and helpful, especially in choosing dinner wine. I'd request him again. This restaurant is located at Reunion resort near Disney so not many outside diners. If you stay on or near the property, this is a great option for not cooking.

    We had a perfect dinner at Forte. Food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. Noor, our waiter and the rest of the "crew" went way above and beyond to provide one of the best dining experiences we could have asked for. This is not cheap, fast food, rathen fine dining with all the things expectted of a high end establishment including both $$ and quality.

    The look of the restaurant was very nice and the service was friendly and efficient. My three golf buddies and I each had a different dish and every one was quite good. The best feature, for us, was that we did not have to travel as we are staying at Reunion, had flown in from New York in the morning, played a round of golf in the afternoon, and the last thing we wanted to do was get into a car and drive somewhere. So the question is: If we were staying somewhere else would we drive 15 minutes or half an hour to eat at Forte rather than one of the many other choices available in Orlando. The answer is, if we had driven there we would not have been disappointed.

    Service was respectable. Food was solid. Great atmosphere. However a foodie would not be particularly enchanted. Dishes are not individually prepared, which you can tell from the condition of the pasta. Seems like there is huge opportunity here given the positive ambiance and the hotel location. Would not withstand city standards for great food.

    We enjoy regular, but occasional meals at fine dining, including Michelin, restaurants, and eat out frequently at more usual establishments . Went to Forte as somewhere a bit special in Orlando area. Not disappointed. Very pleasant surroundings. Waiters very attentive, but not overbearing, and made us feel welcome. Antipasti platter good, not outstanding, main courses, mostly fish or pork, excellent. Flourfree choc cake, very good but I say that about anything with chocolate. One person true gluten free. Catered for well, not simply by ditching the sauce. Reasonably priced. Will go back. Would recommend. Good for smaller groups. Suitable for quiet dining as a couple on special occasion, restaurant has some private corners.

    We were at Reunion for our anniversary and were a little skeptical that Forte was changed to an Italian restaurant. But when we arrived we were seated at a very private table near the window and it felt like we we had the place to ourselves, although there were a few other groups there. Our server was very attentive and polite. We were disappointed to hear a couple of the menu items were not available, but my husband and I both ended up with dinners that we really enjoyed. Kudos for offering half portions as an option which was a perfect amount and affordable. We will definitely return!

    The waiter was extremely professional and attentive. My girlfriend could not decide on a glass of red wine and he let her try two different ones to decide. When she had a question about an ingredient and how it tasted; he brought her a sample. This is just a small part of the excellent service we received. The food was as outstanding as the service. Highly Recommend!

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meal that variety from swordfish, lasagna, veal piccatta, pork chops and chicken Parmesan..Service was terrific! We will return again!

This was supposed to an Italian restaurant but the food for the most part was bland & tasteless. The only thing I enjoyed about my whole dinner was the appetizer & the wines.

    This was the first time we have dined at Forte since the new Italian menu and decor upgrade. It is signicantly improved our desire to dine there again. We were a group of five with varying tastes and everyone enjoyed their meal. The chef personally recommended the pork chop and the swordfish and both were ordered and did not disappoint. The veal piccata was also delicious. The chef came out and gave us his recommendations and checked on our meal; nice touch. Our young waiter Diego was very attentive and would highly recommend asking for him. We are going back later this week. We also like that this restaurant is going to be open throughout the year instead of closing from May to November .
