I loved the translation-the fort. It is an antique building with vaulted ceilings and antique brick archways. The food is typical seatown Italian fare--lots of great pastas and fish dishes to choose from. Nice ambiance.

While waiting for a short moment at the reception our lovely server offered us a Prosecco. The menu is multi-lingual and has separate sections for seafood (lobster, scampi, fish, etc), land (beef and wild boar) and... More

Went here on a Thursday evening without a reservation but bagged a table outside. The food is good, but lacks the wow factor (and professionalism) of the nearby Posto Pubblico. We had the ragu and a vegetarian spaghetti. Finished both, and enjoyed the dishes, but take that trip around the corner to Pubblico. Well worth it.

We decided to eat here because of all the previous positive reviews on trip advisor - and we are pleased to say La Fortezza lived up to expectations. The restaurant itself is beautiful and the service was fantastic - we received a free glass of sparkling wine each as we could not be immediately seated (this was totally unexpected as... More

Really impressive atmosphere in this medieval area. But that's not only that. The kitchen is also excellent in taste and for the eyes. Waitresses are just perfect and smily. Finally, the price is not too much over priced. We highly recommend.
