When wandering downtown St. Pete or before or after a show, can't beat the quick service of this little pizza/Italian diner. Pretty busy, prices were good. Salad was "meh" but my guest's pizza sub was crazy stuffed and good. The garlic knots were delish! We went around dinner time and they were out of iced tea in the serve yourself... More

Convenient to the Central Avenue bars, it's a convenient place for late night munchies. The pizza is good and they have lots of choices.

This is a "must go to" restaurant every time I come visit. The price is right, the food is good and the employees are friendly. Get the garlic knots!! So good!!

Convenient downtown, but the food is so so. Service staff more or less indifferent, and there are better alternatives nearby.

I had a Mediterranean pizza slice and a pepperoni slice. The pieces were huge! Taste was okay - not bad but nothing special. Too much cheese on Mediterranean slice. Pepperoni was not too spicy. Would not go or recommend bc nothing special and the restroom was horrible. I think upkeep reflects on the overall experience and I lost my appetite.... More

Excellent food, quick service and great prices. I could have eaten here everyday and tried something new each time. It all looks delicious and my hot sub was best I have ever eaten

Most people that I work with downtown rave about Fortunato's. I found it to be an easy quick lunch with faster than average service. Can't go wrong to make this your pizza stop.
