    We love going to Fortunato. The restaurant has a great ambiance and vibe and the host/ess and servers always make you feel special. We never feel rushed when we are there no matter how busy it is. We were a party of 3 and the food was excellent as always: We had Salumi for an appetizer, then 3 different entrees - Miele y Sugo, a Bianco pizza with added Prosciutto, and Risi y Bisi. They all hit the table together and they were all piping hot (we were seated with a view of the kitchen, and they all hit the pass at the same time - not easy on a busy Saturday night!). The portions were adequate and 2 of us ended up with leftovers to take home. I would highly recommend Fortunato to anyone craving great Italian food in Roanoke.

    The food was incredible. Cocktail list had many options to choose from, even a few “mocktails” that sounded refreshing. The real star of the show tonight was Sarah, she was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable of the menus. She really gave us the ol’ razzle dazzle.

    Fortunato is always a pleasure for dining, whether it's for more casual dining, or for celebrating a signicant event. The menu runs from more rustic wood-fired pizza to hearty pasta or meat/fish dishes. Service is always engaging and prompt, and the entire family of staff welcome you as though you're in their home.

    The restaurant is on the louder side, especially in the back/side room. However, our experience was very good apart from that. The server was tentative, the drinks were creative and delicious and the food was exceptional!

    These days it’s hard to find restaurants that consistently serve high quality food. Fortunato’s is one of the only restaurants in Roanoke that can do that every time we go and eat here. Our dinners and drinks were excellent and we had a ton of fun talking to the waiter and the rest of the staff! Great job and we will definitely be back

    Amazing cocktails as usual, calamari app is the best in town. We had some dinner specials which were good, and the duck ragu which is usually on the menu, upscale comfort food. Also had the dessert special, a pistachio semi-freddo/ice cream which was some of the best ice cream ever. Staff were very accommodating to our extra guest, and waiter was knowledgeable and helpful!

    Lovely busy ambience. Attentive service (though it’s weird that servers are dressed so casually and more fitting to a hot dog stand?!) and quite delicious food. Don’t expect to dine too too leisurely on a Saturday night - they’ll most definitely be moving you along for their next reservation - but one can always migrate to the bar.
