    What a great find in Roanoke! The food was fantastic and our server (KJ??) was simply one of the best! So personable and efficient. We had the focaccia w/evoo/ricatta, meatballs, stuffed shells, pork chop milanese. All delicious! Will definitely stop again if passing through.

    Fantastic server - KJ - made the he night fun. Grilled bread with olive oil and ricotta and the calamari are not to be missed. Buccatini Arribiato and the risotto dish were table favorites for mains and the ricotta donuts were delicious.

    I was a little disappointed that when I arrived for our 7:00 reservation, we were told our table wasn’t quite ready, but 75% of the tables in the place was empty. I get if there’s not enough staff but there was at least two servers and only 5 small tables filled. We weren’t seated until 7:15. I felt like our waitress was a little unprofessional. She didn’t introduce herself. She didn’t know the top selling dishes. She didn’t know if peas could be taken out of a dish. With all that said, I love the food. I know the pasta is fresh. Everything tastes good and it was a perfect date spot!

    We had yet another great meal at Fortunato last night. This restaurant continues to be one of our top 3 best restaurants in the Roanoke area. They have an outstanding wait staff and make you feel like a valued friend. Their cocktails are always top notch. The entrees we choose are excellent every time. You absolutely will be glad you chose to dine here.

    Place simply but nice, a bit noisy. Good pizza dough but low quality toppings, I speak like this because I'm Italian but I appreciate the fact of finding pizza similar to Italy. Server very professional. the bill a bit expensive for expectations. overall empty.

    Very delicious, the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Brett, the manager, knows his wine! And Gwen our server was very sweet and friendly. We got the duck ragu, eggplant parm, and orchietta pasta and it was all incredible. Also don’t pass on the roasted olives as an appetizer! They were great!

    We had a great time as usual. We have been to fortunato’s many times. The food and cocktails were excellent. The server seemed to be annoyed to be there and wasn’t warm or friendly. She did do a great job on accuracy. Water glasses were always filled. We were a very polite table. I wish she had been as polite in response. Other than that, we had a great experience!
