Francesco Fortuna left Rieti, Italy in 1921 at the age of 26 to seek his fortune in America. He was a barber in Italy having once trimmed the head of the Pope, and he worked as a barber in Niagara Falls during the week. On Sundays he worked as a cook for weddings. Francesco met Clementina in America. They married, and together they cooked. Francesco's uncle was an acclaimed chef in Rome and in 1945 Francesco having trained under his uncle became a chef in his own restaurant in Niagara Falls. From 1945 until today, his recipes and culinary skills have been passed down through two succeeding generations. His sauce is made the same today as he learned to make it from his uncle in Rieti. The Fortuna family prepares all its food fresh and as ordered. No preservatives or artificial starters are used. Raviolis and Gnocchis are hand made. The salad dressing is a guarded recipe. The Fortuna's Italian Cuisine is prepared with pride. If you like it, let the third generation of Fortunas know.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I Enjoy their Chicken Parmigiana but the price keeps rising. $25.00 is too exspensive

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nikki's service excellent, as always. Food as well. Unfortunately the restaurant was very busy and it was LOUD! Why do people think they have to shout in a public place to be understood?? So rude. I think we'll be avoiding weekends from now on and dine there during the week when it's not so crazy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from the restaurant is kind of cramped and they don't have a bar which would be nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Make reservations for dinner on the weekend!Very busy - but meal didn't take long. We both had a different entree and both were delicious. I would have loved the beans and greens, but knew that I couldn't because I did want pasta and could not it both! My husband cleaned his plate.However it was very noisy.
