Delicious! Service was lovely. Lingered for almost three hours catching up with friends and never once felt rushed or pushed out. Everything we ordered, we would order again.
First time at Fortunato and we’ll definitely be going back! The service, the food, the drinks… all amazing.
Drinks were great. Mussels were amazing. My lamb pizza was ok. Eggplant was great and the Penne paste terrific.. Great service too. $$$
What a gem in Roanoke. Authentic Italian food and great service too.
Great food and cocktails. Pizza is incredibly good - but if I was being picky it could have a slightly thinner crust.
The entire experience was great! The food, the service, was better than expected! We hope to come back again soon.
We had a great time. We did have two dinner order mix ups, maybe due to waitress not being able to hear us. Still had a great time. Just had two people with us who had never been there and we wanted it to be perfect so they would love restaurant like we do.
We had a great time, everything was delicious, from our antipasto and cocktails to dessert. Staff was very kind and helpful. We’ll be back again.
As usual great service great food and great I’ll Beyonce. This is a regular stop of ours. Minestrone is the best I’ve ever had.
Good food. Great cocktails. Attentive friendly service. Two top tables a little small. Reasonable prices.
10/10 recommend this spot! Great, food, drinks, and atmosphere! New favorite spot
What a great place to spend New Years Eve! JP and his team did a fantastic job
Never disappointed when we come here. The service is always outstanding, the food is always fantastic!
We had 3 of the items from there New Year's menu and they were amazing!
We will be back again!
Went early for NYE-the food was absolutely amazing as well as the excellent service. Everyone was super helpful and efficient but I was just blown away by how delicious the food was. We had lamb meatballs and the house bread and j got the pizza which I think was the best I’ve ever had! Would highly recommend this restaurant ❤️❤️❤️
The specials were amazing - the soup was incredible - and the standards were standard.
Fortunato has long been my favorite, but last night was over the top excellent. From antipasta to dessert, the food was terrific. Some highlights were the foie gras antipasta, pasta with black truffles, porchetta with sautéed greens, and for dessert chocolate and almond “salami”. The suggested wine pairings were fantastic, too. Highly recommend!
Food was very good. We like pastas of all kinds.
Service was very good. Wines were excellent. Really enjoyed my meal and everything with my husband, Will definitely return with our friends.
Went for my wife’s birthday and the meal and service were excellent.
As usual, this place is so lovely! A gem in southern VA with the best Italian food I’ve had since.. well, Italy. This time I had mussels as an appetizer and the house bread with the Italian seasoning was divine.
This was the first time for my future son in law to visit Fortunado! He was born and raised in Rome; now living in NYC and he gave this experience a raving 100 percent!! He loved the wine, food, dessert and menu!! Definitely all authentic Italian and will be back! Thanks Fortunado for always a wonderful experience!!
Food was amazing as usual. Drinks were great even though only one bartender was on duty. They worked hard to get drinks out as fast as possible.
The hostess, Sophia, was lovely and welcoming. Our number of diners dropped and she handled the change with a smile and ease. Our waitress was fun and knowledgeable. The drinks and food were outstanding, we had a great time!
Everything was delicious and the service was excellent.
Great service, food is excellent, and the ambiance is one of the best in Roanoke
Fortunato was excellent, as usual. Always one of my favorites!
Visiting Roanoke... great find!!
Love love love
One thing… it would be nice to have bread at the table
Is there more than 5 stars!? This place is absolutely incredible. Hand made pasta and sauces. Open kitchen concept. Very attentive service. Not enough space to tell you how incredible it was.
Excellent pasta dishes. We will return to try their pizzas per a recommendation from friends.
Fortunato is the best restaurant in Roanoke! The food and service are always excellent.
We love Fortunato with its terrific food and friendly service! Way to go JP and team!!
As usual the food was delicious, the drinks were sparkly and perfect. Service was friendly and knowledgeable.
Only flaw in the service was dirty dishes not picked up in a timely manner. Food as usual was superb. Craft house cocktails were great.Even had a sommelier for wine recommendations! Will be back again the next time we are in Roanoke.
Wonderful food, great wait staff!
One of our fav’s in Roanoke. Not a cookie cutter Italian Restaurant.
This was my third visit and I’ve come to the conclusion that I am not a fan of their type of food. Had a lamb meatball pizza and it was OK, also had the roasted beets they were OK, but at $25 for the two, I was expecting something with a distinguishable flavor!
Great service. Food was delicious and flavorful. Loved the Calamari and the Tiramisu.
We really appreciated the staff, the service, and the requested special seating for our hearing impaired folks. The later was particularly kind.
It is nice to be remembered and to have the staff come with options based on past preferences.
I tend to appreciate a more traditional Italian menu, but the quality of food and the service is over the top. Such a great evening!
WE stopped in your city for only one night, Decided to try Fortunato. So glad we did. Being form out of town you never know what you will get. The service was excellent, the food delicious, great cocktails. If we lived there we would be come regulars.
