Over the years we must have been to nearly half of all the restaurants in Grado (and there are a lot of them), but this place is, in our opinion, truly outstanding in terms of the creativity and artistic presentation of highly imaginative fish dishes. While there is a 'traditional' fish menu, we normally opt for the taster menu, which... More

Paolo opened a great restaurant: food by chef Gunter is simply amazing and the atmosphere is elegant and warm. Be sure to have a pasta and a "Savor": delicious is not enough! I simply ADORE Alla Fortuna!

Nice location AT a busy shopping street at the edge of the old town. A little different then most of the trattoria's in Grado. Dishes served at a slightly higher level. Classic Italian dishes with an upgrade. Nice selection of wines from €28 and up. Prices are a little bit higher than most of the trattoria's but it is defenitly... More

Good location, inviting atmosphere, promising menu... HOWEVER, unfortunately, the looks don't fit the service! Order: fish balls on eggplant mouse with red peppers (around 20€) and the "traditional" 4 courses menu (35€). Beverages: water, black tea and a glas of white wine. We were served by two waiters, one of them didn't seem to care much for our well being.... More

But, good is something else. First issue it's about the behavior of the waiters people because i think people need to know when someone is really crap and unpolite. And if they will lose business because my review; i think it is what they deserve if employing such a kind of fellows. Now, about the food: few good and something... More

Good wine selection, nice setting, excellent service. Just relax and enjoy. The octopus is truly remarkable. The cheviche they give you as a free appetizer is just great. Dessert selection is varied and all food is presented with a lot of attention to detail.

Worth a visit. Very proper. Good service. Food made and presented in a creative way. Octopus Boreto with black (seppia) polenta should become a classic dish of modern cuisine.

A little pricier than many around Grado, but service is spot on and the atmosphere is great. Superb crudo - an assortment of ultra fresh feeling, brightly flavoured seafood that comes as a very sizeable antipasti. Prawns antipasti is pretty good too, a little heavy on balsamic for the sweet meat. Vongole is superb with spaghetti and the bluefish mixed... More

We went to Antica Alla Fortuna on advice of previous tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Although we were the only diners there it was a great experience. The food, presentation, taste and smell is something special for the senses. Our waiter was very professional. The Chef came out and introduced himself @ the end of the meal. Treat... More
