This old school Italian eatery has been serving authentic Italian favorites since 1982. Fortunata’s is located among the old-school Italian businesses that have been around for some time, a family run venture that has an inviting atmosphere that evokes the generosity and style of people who truly take pride in what they are cooking. The variety of offerings on the menu make it a great place to either come in for a delicious slice with generous layers of fresh vegetables baked on top, or if you want a meal that explains why they have been on the map for so long then try one of their signature dished like the eggplant parmesan or a massive bowl of mussels in light tomato sauce. Although they specialize in Italian classics, their old-fashioned espresso machine is expertly handled by a staff happy to make you a delicious drink with an Italian twist. You’ll find all of the charm of a café in Little Italy, only better because you’ll be discovering what everyone in the neighborhood already cherishes.
