25 Oct Forti Grill and Bar: Italian made in Menlyn Citizen
A rooftop-like terrace, Italian comfort food and a deft wine list makes this a Pretoria hotspot.
A fifth-generation Italian restaurateur needs to know a few things – good wine, good food and good company.
These three things make or break a restaurant, and Fortunato Mazzone seems to have struck gold. Apart from providing the essential trio, his restaurant Forti Grill and Bar in the brand new Menlyn Maine also adds a great view with a touch of family.
Mazzone, fondly known as Forti, has made his new venture his home. Lunch or dinner, there’s a good chance he’ll come over and chat about why he’s here, what dishes he recommends and what wine you should have.
