      It was several years inbetween visits to Fortuna's. I don't know why we waited so long. A family dinner in Feb. was fantastic. The Veal Parm is to die for and the portion is enough for 2 possibly 3 meals. My other 3 dining partners were equally thrilled with their choices; steak, baked fish, and fish fry. Would definately recommend this restaurant in the middle of Niagara Falls.

      We have been to this restaurant over the years several times and it has been hit or miss. This is definitely not a restaurant for children as it is more upscale. You will get better service on a non-holiday rather than going on a day like Mother's day when they will be swamped and you will get no service. Several years ago we took a small child to this place and they were very nice to her and handed her toys to keep her occupied.

      I have been going to Fortunas Restaurant for more than 47 years. It was the first restaurant my husband and I went to after returning home in NF from our honeymoon. Their Veal Parmegean is the best anywhere and the service and ambiance superb.

      I have tried MANY different places, but continue to come back for the veal parmagiana here at Fortuna's. It is simply the best. The veal is tender and pounded out very thin to enhance the two slices you get. I like their house salad dressing also as it is reminds me of homemade vinaigrette made with olive oil. This is authentic Italian true to its form here in Niagara Falls. I have been able to come at any time without reservations needed, which has come quite in handy, as well as the economical aspect of here versus many others. Go try it!

      Pros: Generous tasty portions

      Cons: Need to know what street it is on and where

      Have been to Fortuna's several times and had a great experience each time. Very quaint setting that's great for both business gatherings and romantic meals for two. Not a great place to bring kids as it's not really a "family" restaurant, but it's not intended to be. Crayons are available from home or at swanky joints like Denny's.

      Upon making the reservation for a Friday night, I explained this was my first visit and taking my boyfriend out for dinner for his birthday, and Italian food is his favorite. We were seated immediately and that was where the service stopped. It was very busy, but our waitress did not show up at our table to even get us drinks until I went to the hostess after waiting 15 minutes. Also during this time there was large white napkin in the middle of the floor that several employees walked by several times without picking it up. When I waitress did finally come to the table she was clearly annoyed and I felt bad for even placing the order. I ordered chicken picatta and he ordered rigatoni. The meals were large portions but nothing spectacular. The salad was just iceburg lettuce and tomatoes swimming in dressing but a la carte, another disappointment. We will not be going back.

      We went to dinner at Fortunas and to say the least the experience was horrible!! I ordered a chicken dinner and I was expecting boneless chicken and they came out with chicken that had bones in it. The macaroni stuck together and was just down right disgusting!! We had a 3 year old child with us and the atmosphere was too smug for him to be able to enjoy himself. No crayons or anything!! HORRID!! The place is very attractive to look at.

      PROS: Attractive setting
      CONS: Horrible food

      I cannot believe Fortuna's has not received a much higher rating! We have been going for over 30 years and it is the best Italian restaurant in Niagara Falls. Starting with the salad-- as the other review said the best house dressing ever. The bread is from an Ontario bakery famous throughout the Niagara region. The soups, appetizers (try the beans & greens) are outstanding. And of course the sauce and pastas are simply delicious. My personal favorites are the lasagna, raviola, and veal cacciatore-- but I've never heard anyone complain in all the visits over the years. We don't live in the Falls but have always gone out of our way to go whenever that urge hits us! Great service and very pleasant atmosphere. Now this has gotten me hungry............

      My wife and I have picked Fortuna's as our favorite Italian restaurant. The house Dressing is the best you will find. The portions are generous and tasty. Service is quick and freindly. Great place.
