Forti Grill and Bar is the dream of well known SA celebrity chef Fortunato Mazzone. After 22 very successful years at SA icon restaurant Ritrovo, Forti (as he is known) is creating a flagship restaurant to a truly international standard. Forti Grill and Bar is an upmarket restaurant with an Italian flair and a true emphasis on hospitality and exceptional food. It will cater for Sun International VIP clientele, diplomats, high profile businessmen, socialites and Fortis favourite – his loyal regulars with a beautifully and luxuriously appointed dining room and showpiece kitchen offering service and cuisine of a superior standard. The restaurant seats 180 and includes 2 private rooms and a full temperature controlled wine cellar / private room and an elegant bar serving some of the most exclusive drinks in SA. There is an outdoor terrace featuring screened off pergolas with private tables, outdoor tables, communal seating at raised tables and lounge seating for those who just want to relax. The most exclusive rooftop terrace in SA offering fine dining under the stars. Our service team boasts SAs most experienced front of house managers and no less than 3 culinary springboks in the kitchen under the leadership of famed culinary molecular artist Edward Clegg as well as pastry whizz Jean-Mari Hanekom. Our famous Ritrovo team of Niki Pouris and Quinton Russell are on the floor with Francesco and the whole team is all bound together under the watchful eye and guidance of Forti.
