Restaurant Review

Forte Unique Cuisines is very popular with locals who come for reasonably priced, Mediterranean influenced food with a friendly neighborhood ambiance.

Owned and operated by Jon Ucal who is involved with every aspect of the business and where his friendly presence and loud laugh can be felt through out the dining room. He can often be seen bringing complimentary plates of outstanding hummus, cheese, and olives, while making sure that every one is enjoying their dining experience.

The menu offers a good variety of Mediterranean influenced ( French, Italian, and Turkish) dishes. Some of the menu items include homemade pastas and desserts.

The ambiance is "Old World" with tables set with linen tablecloths and napkins, carpeted flooring, along with soft background music

The main dining room has a fireplace on in the winter months with a balcony for outdoor dining in the warmer months.

The bar scene is very friendly with a bartender that is adept at remembering names. Many patrons have referred to the bar as the "Cheers" of Point Pleasant.

The complimentary hummus is a nice touch

This is a good place for a get together with family or friends.

Banquet facilities are available for 20 to 90 people.

On Thursdays they offer BYOW "Bring your own wine" with no corkage fee.

Forte Unique Cuisines also offers a smaller portion bistro and children's menu.

Open seven days/week, they are open for Lunch & Dinner, with an attractively priced lunch menu.
