About Our Restaurant

Our restaurant was founded in 1970 by Gerry Forte, who wanted to introduce the flavours and ambience of Italian food to Swanage.                  


Gerry’s legacy has been taken up by his son, with his wife Anna, continuing this truly family enterprise, together with our loyal staff, many of whom have been with us for a long time. In Forte family tradition, nothing gives us greater pleasure than welcoming customers, old and new.

Fresh Pasta
