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.

Great food and cocktails. Pizza is incredibly good - but if I was being picky it could have a slightly thinner crust.

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.

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 ❤️❤️❤️

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!
