This place is as Italian as you can get it. The area might be less romatic (don't walk there at night) but the restaurant is a gem. Real deal italian cuisine. No fake pizzas with horrible fancy crusts. Best pasta I had in a very long time. And they make you wait for it, which is a good thing. There's... More

For a while we were very disappointed with Fortuna's lunches. The Lasagna was tiny and terrible. But we went on a Sunday afternoon when they had a full menu. We had a delicious pasta, salad and cold eggplant. The service was excellent and we had a decent glass of wine. If we were to return for lunch, that is the... More

There is no place that can compare with the excellent food here at Fortuna's. My husband is from the area, but has been gone many, many years. He has taken me to Fortuna's about four times over the years when we have visited back East. This is hands down the very best Italian food. What a lovely place and lovely... More

Wonderful experience from beginning to end. During our visit, we enjoyed complimentary bread service, a shared Italian salad, two glasses of wonderful Cabernet, two vegetarian pasta entrees, and an Italian coffee topped with whipped cream for dessert. Everything, down to the service, was flawless. I couldn't believe we were dining out in Niagara Falls. On another note, the entrée portions... More

I came here for a business dinner and we all ordered wine and had bruschetta for the appetizer. It was delicious. We had salads before our entrees and those were also very good. I ordered the gnocchi for my entree and the portion was generous and the flavor was wonderful. I couldn't finish the dish because the portion was too... More

The wine took 15 minutes, the food over an hour...we had a concert to go to so we asked for it to be boxed as a to go order and we ended up eating dinner after 11 in our hotel. Not really the romantic pre-concert dinner we had hoped for but it had to do. Our waitress gave us a... More

My boyfriend and I had dinner here with another couple on the recommendation of a friend. He and I shared the veal Francesca and a salad. The veal was wonderful. However, we ordered the fried gnocchi as an appetizer for the table. The white dip served with it tasted odd to me. I told the others not to try it... More

Have been coming here for years with family. The food is prepared with care and tastes amazing. The veal is the best anywhere. This is my preferred restaurant when in Niagara Falls/Buffalo.

This old time Italian restaurant located in a residential neighborhood is well worth the effort to locate and visit. Traditional Italian food is the main feature, but seafood and steaks are also available.Reasonable price, wonderful service, generous portions and an extensive wine list are additional features that make this restaurant a local gem. Service was competent and friendly. You will... More
