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

Have not been in Fortuna's for several years. Had a wonderful meal - the sauce was the boss this night! The sauce this evening was the big winner! From the gnocchi's to the Veal Parm to the Penne with Sausage - home run. The sauce was fresh - the tomatoes were still growing - nicely seasoned - nothing overpowering and... More

We had a family reunion for Cousins on a Sunday evening! The restaurant does have a parking lot attached to the building. The surrounding area to the restaurant is a little scetchy. We all order off the menu. They had great pasta specials. The calamari and beans/greens were great appetizers. The chicken cacciatore was just OK. The pork chop dish... More

I've been going to Fortuna' s (I believe when I was a kid it was called Fortuna's Deluxe Grill) for over 50 years. When I come back to the area I have to come here. They consistently put out fantastic food and always we have had great service. The entree is always great but so is the bread(never get bread... More

This is my friends favourite Italian restaurant. We were staying on the Canadian side but crossed the border so that I could try this restaurant. We arrived for an early dinner. The neighbourhood is as an earlier reviewer said is sketchy. I wouldn't want to be here after dark. We were served a wonderful white bread that we could have... More

Tonight my wife and I ate at Fortuna's because we both like Italian food and because it has excellent reviews in TripAdvisor. My wife is a better judge than I as she has mostly Italian blood and was taught to cook Italian food from scratch by her grandmother who actually immigrated from Italy and her mother. I had the Chicken... More

We went to dine there for Valentine's Day. They had a special Valentine's Day menu, four courses, with varying prices. The restaurant itself was very cute, romantic for couples, soft music playing, candles on tables. Our server was quick and efficient and friendly. The guys filling the water glasses were on top of their game. But that's where it ends.... More

The Italian food in this restaurant is so good all the time, it is worth skipping your free meal at the Seneca Niagara Casino and eating here. Everything taste good here on a regular basis. The food at your table and the tables around you all look and taste great. The sauces are not watered down or runny, the salad... More

When you make a reservation for 9 people and your table is set for 7, it's an honest mistake, I guess. When that party gets the check befor a dessert/coffee offer, they probably want you to leave to turn the table, When a restaurant adds a 20% gratuity, it's not a game changer but not telling the party is boader...
