Have eaten here a few times. The old lady who owns the place is really rude. Service is like a car crash. Food is okay but portions are small and the food is expensive for what it is. Not worth the hassle

First time in Forte dei Marmi. Visited Il Fortino with two families, four kids. Unfortunately, didn't check reviews in advance. A place for tourists with ridiculous prices for the quality of food. No children's menus, so we asked what they had available for children. Charged us £28 Euros each for fish and chips plates for each child, our fault for... More

We have been several times over the year and were very disappointed this time, the food is still very good but they were very understaffed and the ones they had were inexperienced, it used to be special and may be again if they go back to having more and better staff.

A busy night, but still good service for our family. We had starters and main courses. Our children had dessert. We were served and catered by someone who seemed to be the owner, a very service minded elderly woman. Great food, but quite pricey.

Ordered a steak medium well done, they made it red. Send it back, got a totally unbeatable steak!!! Very very very BAD SERVICE. If you go there don't expect friendly people, they don't have manners. DON'T GO THERE !!!

Food was really good but portions were small. You definitely need 3 courses. Service was dreadful. They were so disorganised it was almost, but not quite, funny. It was hard to see who was in charge and who was supposed to be looking after which tables. Also it was very expensive for what it was. We would definitely not go... More

This used to be our favourite restaurant for lunch each time we visited Forte dei Marmi. A family run restaurant - Mum, Dad and the two sons. Beautiful food, generous serves, attention to detail and reasonably priced. We go at least once a year usually more on an annual visit to Italy. Imagine my disbelief - we hung around waiting...

I've never experienced such a horrifying experience. At first the staff was polite and took our order quickly. Shortly after, our food started to come out. Unfortunately the waitress misunderstood what we ordered and brought out the wrong dish. After telling her that she insisted this was correct and refused to admit it was wrong. After a while the boss... More

We dine in many restaurants and most are good. This one is terrible. The owners were in one corner with a football game being played up loud and drowning out everything else. The staff did not want to be there and the prices are a rip off Food average

Il Fortino restaurant gave us a very pleasant afternoon. It was our first visit to this restaurant, but not the last. We came without a reservation, which I think is ok for lunch. We were met with big smiles from everybody, and that is always a good sign. All restaurants should learn their personal the importance of this! I had... More
