    The Lumache al Forno was delicious and a really big serving. The cocktails were really good - a fun twist on classic cocktails and the bartender was not skimpy on the liquor. The star of the show was the lamb meatball pizza as we haven’t had anything like that before. The service was great and our food came out in a good time without us feeling rushed at all.

    wonderful food, made with great local ingredients, and very thoughtful presentations. The portions are good also. Especially liked the eggplant, which is new to me on the menu. Very much a gathering place with an active bar. See and be seen. Too noisy for an intimate dining experience. Otherwise excellent !

    I ordered the roasted branzino whole fish, tbh, it was the best bass I’ve ever tasted! My compliments tot he cook. Very nice place, not too noisy, quiet. The prices are good, the setting was so so. It’s more of a cafe style than a romantic place to eat as it is small. Really happy I tried this restaurant for the first time.

    Fortunato delivers a great selection of Italian dishes - house made pasta with great sauces, pizza fired in a very hot oven, along with antipasta, incredible salads and vegetable sides, and entrees. Gluten free selection is good in spite in addition to all the great bread and pasta available. The vibe of the room is lively, yet it's easy to hear conversation at the table. Service is great. Highly recommend.

    We had another fabulous dinner at Fortunato Saturday night. Everything was cooked to perfection. We had the Branzino fish, the duck Ragu pasta, the pork chop, the risotto with asparagus and salads. We all enjoyed our dinners. We love the ambience here. We love the friendliness of the servers. Thanks again to the chef and the servers for a wonderful dining experience.

    Had an enjoyable evening out during a business dinner. Atmosphere was 5 star! Service was almost 5 star, however we did feel a bit rushed in getting our food order in before we were even served our cocktails. The food was very good and we will return on our next visit to Roanoke!

    Our server was friendly, attentive and considerate. There when he was needed, funny and also careful to not disturb the table when it wasn’t necessary. The food was delicious, beautiful and prepared surprisingly quickly. The carbonara in particular was simple (as it should be) but perfectly cooked and seasoned. We’ll be back soon.

    Excellent! The food was good as always. However, the real thing that set this particular Fortunato experience apart was the service. Gwen was absolutely excellent-attentive without being overwhelming, kept our wine/water topped up at all times, and was overall just a bubbly personality.

    Had not visited this restaurant in a while and was pleasantly surprised. Wait staff was friendly and helpful. Food was excellent, especially the grilled branzino (fish). The salamedi di choccolato desert was also excellent. Best shortbread I've had anywhere. The chocolate wafer had just the right hint of orange. Will put this place on my regular list of restaurants to frequent. Great location because it's just down the street from its sister restaurant, Lucky's. Had to stop in there for a night cap and visit Kent and Taylor, the best bartenders in Roanoke.
