Thought the pasta/entree choices were a little bit limited. Sides, which were needed to make a complete meal, were very good - we had beets and also grilled olives.

Noise level at 6:15 was fine. By 7:30 on a Saturday night it was very noisy but the restaurant was full.

This was our second visit. We all chose different items for our entrees, and they were all great. The cocktails were excellent as well. Service was first class, and we will definitely visit again.

We enjoyed this place. The server had some trouble with a difficult client, which made talking our drink order kind of slow. But then on the other hand we only had one drink! this made the evening less costly then we had expected! However, it was somewhat disturbing not being asked what we would like to drink for the first 20 or so minutes and watch her struggle on the computer. Food was outstanding. The pizza tasted great, although maybe not well cut and the center of the crust was a little soft and soggy. Oh well, it was still tasty.

Delightful evening at a great neighborhood place. The salad was summer on a plate and the special pizza was perfect. We had not been to Fortunato for a few weeks and realized that we really missed this place.

Real, fresh, exceptional Italian food. I would highly recommend. Pizza is baked in wood burning oven which makes it light and fluffy.

Our waiter was not attentive and appeared to have an “I could care less” attitude. Also, the noise level was very loud and to the point I wanted to leave. The is unfortunate because the food was outstanding.

We went on Wednesday night - half price pizza night. This is a great deal for their unique offering of wood-fired oven pizzas. The service and ambiance was excellent as usual.

Really too loud in the main dining area. Ended up with a massive headache! First time we ate here it was better, with better menu choices. Not really interested in this visit’s offerings.

Might consider menu explanations of dishes especially with noise levels affecting communication abilities with wait staff. Portions were lacking this time too.

Excellent food! Nice trendy restaurant. They really need to invest in some noise dampening though. The restaurant was full but is not that large and we struggled to carry on a conversation due to the noise level.

Fortunato is not to be missed. The food is great and the service is excellent. Try the lamb meatballs and the arrancini followed by a plate of pasta and you'll be pleased. Pizzas are also a specialty if you prefer a lighter fare.

Enjoyed an early dinner on Saturday night. We had been anxious to go back to have the Lamb Meatballs since our last visit. They did not disappoint. Also had the Pickled Shrimp which was very good. We shared the Fungi and Prosciutto White Pizza - brought part of it home so we could have dessert. It was a super chocolate mousse with chocolate gelato on top. I think next time I'd ask for vanilla gelato - but it was scrumptious. Service is always excellent. A very cute place - lively atmosphere. A real treat!

I tell ya it was LOUD in there. Could barely hear my friends. Get some acoustic treatment please!

The cocktails, though perfectly sufficient, need some attention to craft and detail.

Telling me that they can’t put half and half vegan sausage on a pizza after we spent about 110.00 in drinks and meager appetizers is a bit disingenuous.

It’s pizza. I don’t care if it’s cooked in a microwave or out of a box, or on a wood stove-gravity holds the toppings in place- the answer is yes, the chef can give me a mix of sausages.

The artichokes, olive oil and bread (not complimentary), and the branzino were all delicious and the calamari was spot on, exceeding my expectations.

My advice is to keep your expectations in check and bring earplugs.

Best Pizza in Roanoke, hands down. Love their upscale vibe, amazing cocktails and great service. Grilled olives, shrimp in butter/pepper sauce and calamari were our go to appetizers. Amazing food, whatever you choose.

Don’t miss the craft cocktails! The menu is a delight to read...the most difficult part of the Fortunato experience is “everything looks so good...what should I order?” We decided on ordering appetizers for the first and second course and an entree for the third course.
Prices were very reasonable..and the noise level was low! Great dining experience!
