Fortunato 104 Kirk Ave SW, Roanoke Italian • $$

“Fortunato serves upscale Italian food in a pared down but trendy atmosphere. Yes, the semi/rustic style means diners either need to sit close together or shout to be heard. I was one of a weekday evening of a party of three all of whom love to try new food. Starting with the formaggi (cheese platter) to cannoli and semifreddo dessert, we were not disappointed. Each of us ordered a main dish. The vegetarian chose homemade pasta with a creamy cheese sauce; the meat eater, pork Milanese; and I, the roasted whole Branzino. I elelcted to trythis fish for comparison with similar dishes in a favorite Oriental restaurant. Fortunato’s Branzino preparation won hands down for me. The flesh was perfectly prepared - moist, tender, and almost falling off the bones. The side complimented the fish perfectly. I finished my cannoli accompanied by an espresso and a smile on my face.”

Stellina 104 Kirk Ave SW, Roanoke Cocktail Bar • $$

“Great small bar to have an excellent cocktail and great food.Stopped by for a drink and small bites. Have not been here before, pleasantly surprised.AtmosphereVery small inside, but a cozy feel. Full bar, and small tables, perfect for couples or small groups. Sat at the bar, ordered drinks and appetizers. The food is the same menu from Fortunato need door, a very good Italian kitchen and Neapolitan pizza restaurant. That was packed (Friday at 7pm), so if you don’t have reservations, this gets you the same.ServiceOutstanding! The young woman who was tending bar was excellent…knew everything about the menu, and was attentive yet not intrusive. Best part was when I asked is she could make a traditional daiquiri (shaken, neat in a coupe glass). This is a sticky point at most bars these days as most often the bartenders have no idea how to make something like this, even though it’s been around for years. However she said it was a favorite of hers, and served me a perfectly made, delicious daiquiri. Also made my wife an excellent old fashioned…well done!FoodWe ordered a couple antipasti off the menu, Lamb meatballs and Formaggi, both were amazing. The meatballs were delicious, spiced perfectly, in a tasty marinara and cheese sauce. The Formaggi was also delicious, 3 small cheese varieties, with bread, artichokes, and an amazing Mostarda, which is similar to a chutney but made with fruit, in this case we were informed, strawberries. Outstanding flavor to all our food, and the two appetizers were perfect for a light meal.Only very small down for us was the music was a bit loud, and sometimes a little too frantic. Yes, sigh…we are older, and always are aware of loud music! It wasn’t overwhelming, or we would have not stayed, but that would be our only small critique.Very much enjoyed our visit!Would I go back…absolutelyWould I recommend…most definitely”

Restaurants by Cuisine

bloom restaurant & wine bar 1109 Main St SW, Roanoke Tapas/Small Plates • $$$

“What a great addition to Roanoke. The lounge area is just perfect for a date night, and the little details like jazz on vinyl made it feel special. Staff were all very welcoming and pleasant, and service was excellent. Cocktails were great. We tried a special fixed menu that was Mediterranean themed. The small plates were all good -- imaginative flavors and the presentation is very "instagram worthy". The mac and cheese was great. I will say that the food itself tasted good but not out of this world, especially for the prices. There are better food options in Roanoke's fancier restaurants for a similar price. We also had seven small plates for the two of us and did not feel full at the end of the meal. However, we really enjoyed everything, and the atmosphere alone is worth it. We will definitely go again!”

“It’s been awhile, and I was looking forward to returning to this spacious, pleasant spot for wine, drinks and OUTSTANDING food. They have not disappointed. I believe they’ve upped their game with portion sizes (unnecessarily for us; great, well crafted food served beautifully takes time and attention) but my husband will take home half his Mill Mountain Charcuterie plate. More than enough for two. I inhaled the Spinach & Artichoke flatbread, as I did last time and probably shouldn’t have considering I’m just one person. We did the Richard’s Favorite Flight followed by a glass of bubbles for me and Maple Bourbon Smash for him. Bravo and cheers! Come on down!”

Viet Sub 1403 Williamson Rd NE, Roanoke Vietnamese • $

“The food was delicious! Ordered 2 pho, 4 spring roll, pork bahn mi, and dumplings. All of my order was fresh, hot, and delicious! Not to mention my spring rolls were rolled perfect! The rice paper wasn’t hard in any spots, pork flavorful, great portion inside. The fish sauce was perfectly balanced. I love that it had some spice to it. I ordered from DoorDash and the reason I say the service because I called just to tell them about my order in general. And the person on the phone was very kind. The person did not rush me off the phone or anything of that nature and I appreciate that in general because I know they probably were busy. So I recommend this place five stars! And they DONT skimp on the meat in the pho!! I appreciate that”

A Few Old Goats Brewing 515 8th St SW Unit 228, Roanoke Brewery • $$

“This is definitely one of the best, if not THE best, brewery in Roanoke.Plenty of variety in a cozy atmosphere situated quite centrally to everything as well.I recommend starting your pub crawl here and migrate elsewhere after, either downtown or Grandin Village.Now, if you're still reading, let's get into the details of the beers.I started with their newly released Mtn View, named after the historic neighborhood where AFOG is located. This is a pre-prohibition style lager that was resurrected from an old recipe from the same era, with a corn grain base. It is ?.I also had the farmhouse saison, bc I'm a sucker for a good farmhouse ale and this one is top notch! You can taste the wild!Even the expectedly heavy, 8.5% Collusive Resistance comes across easy drinking and full of a variety of flavors.If you haven't been, go. If you're a regular, you know where the best beer in Roanoke is already.”

I appreciate that they were making the sandwiches fresh. I guess they were short handed because the young girl that came around the corner was removing gloves, packed out sandwiches, packed our cold fries, delivered the food, took the payment and then made our drinks. This Arby's is better than the one down by Kenworth. Hire, hire, hire if you can.”

“The assistant manager was working the register and he was fantastic! He was friendly, funny, and knowledgeable. This was the best experience I'd had at a restaurant, and I urge others to give them a try. Everyone working was joking and happy and so friendly with the customers. These guys really go above and beyond and they make the whole experience memorable, warm, and fun. My daughter is 9 years old and had never been to a dairy Queen, and he was just so wonderful helping her to decide what to try, it was really great. I can't wait to go back!”

“Have passed by this place a few times while downtown, but never gone in and was not disappointed! It's larger inside than expected with three floors of seating and has a few larger tables for bigger parties. All the food we got was good and came out fast. It was around 2 pm on a Saturday when we went and wasn't overly busy. We particularly liked the seating at the top because we had a good view of the City Market Plaza. They had a few TVs playing bearing sporting events if that's your thing, and had both alcoholic and non-alcoholic choices. We ordered the Craft Ginger Beer and lemonade and the Ginger Beer was good without being too spicy while on the other hand the lemonade was very tart. A little added sugar balanced it out, but the note is for those who like it that way. Prices were fair. Spent about $27 with Appetizer (Price split between two), Drink, and Food. Will eat here again! Food ordered: Three Notch'd Nachos, Hatch Chile Burger, Peach and Chile Chicken Sandwich; Photos: @nokesidefoodie”

The fish is fresh, the flavors are good, and nothing feels plain or bland, the service is great also. They have a side of the restaurant that is just sushi and a side for Teppanyaki. Both are great and if you want, you can also order sushi rolls on the Teppanyaki side.”

“Upon recommendation, we attended a dinner service on a Saturday night. We started with the wedge and caesar salads. The wedge was amazing but the caesar wasn’t that great. We then had the 10oz filet. It was the best steak we have ever had. The seasoning was amazing and it was cooked to perfection. We also had the Brussels sprouts and the mushrooms for sides. They were also amazing. The only thing that we thought needed improvement was the salad and the bread. Other than that it all was great. Will definitely return.”
