Heavy - elegant
I purchased this flatware because the weight feels good in your hand. We use it everyday, but it also looks good for more formal occasions. This flatware was a good value

Love them
Great weight and balance. After a year (and many trips thru the dishwasher) they still look new. We have not had any trouble with the knifes but do use a steak knife when called for. I just wish Sir La Table carried some serving pieces.

Disappointed with knives
The flatware looks great and has a nice weight, feel and balance, but the knives don't cut very well. They seem to saw more than cut the food. So we were disappointed

Fortessa Bistro flatware
We saw these in the store and both really liked all the pieces. We have a 40 year old set of very nice Swedish flatware. Overtime pieces have vanished, mainly teaspoons. The Swedish company still exists, but the pattern is long discontinued.

We also wanted a change of pace and Bistro fits the bill. The pieces are very well balanced, have excellent weight and a terrific hand feel.

We highly recommend this flatware to everyone.
We also like the Bistro pattern because it fits in with our overall contemporary design style

Wonderful flatware and customer service
Beautiful flatware that is heavy and well balanced in the hand. I didn't really appreciate quality flatware until I began using. It seems to elevate my dining experience. There was a problem with my order that customer service took care of immediately. This was my first shopping experience with Sur La Table and it won't be my last.

beautiful flatware I am very pleased with our choice
Just received my order. Love it. My family likes it as well. It's simple and sturdy and looks great. We first used Fortessa in a restaurant a couple of years ago. I liked the feel of the flatware. It had substance. I made a note of the manufacturer. When It was time to replace our flatware I searched for Fortessa and found it at sur la table.

I have finally found a flatware set that is both functional and gorgeous. I intended to use them as everyday... however I think I may save for special dinners or dinners with friends and family. The weight is perfectly balanced; and the knife cuts easily.

Great value. Thank you SLT....

Quality & stylish elegance at an affordable price!
Concur with all the positive reviews, as we have been using our first, new set since Christmas, (two+ months), and in fact, purchased a second set to leverage the e-mailed Sur La Table coupon after the first month. We have 8 place settings now, and also purchased sets of the matching serrated knives. Look, weight, size & washing machine durability make using this flatware a foodie's delight! Best value flatware purchase in our 27.5 years of marriage. Enjoy - we sure are!

Very, very happy!
I love my new flatware. Even my kids noticed and commented how much better they like them. You can dress them up or dress them down, very versitile, from picnics to Christmas dinner.

Vickie B on Oct 18, 2018
I am looking to replace my older, cheaper set of flatware and have compared several sets on line; when looking at them in person from many stores and just can't find one I love. This set has the best reviews out of all the sets I've chosen but I haven't been able to see and test them myself yet as my local Sur la table stores do not have them in stock. Hoping they will be a keeper!

Is this flatware 18/10 stainless steel? Many of the other designs by this manufacturer specify the stainless steel content but this one does not.
A shopper on Feb 19, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Actually the Sur la Table site as of 10/15/13 does list it as 18/10.I cannot recommend these highly enough
Has Fortessa brought in the serving pieces yet for the Bistro line?
A shopper on Nov 28, 2015
Is there a matching Fortess Bistro hostess or serving set?
A shopper on Oct 9, 2011
BEST ANSWER: This is a classically beautiful set. Unfortunately we do not carry the serving pieces for this design. We do carry the Fortessa Grand City Serving pieces that are very neutral and go well with most of Fortessa's Flatware.
I'd like to purchase some soup spoons and knives without buying the whole set. Is this possible?
Jennifer H on Mar 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: We don't sell these pieces individually.
Will Bistro Cafe stack easily in my flatware tray?
Or are the pieces too thick?
Donna P on Sep 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Well, there is a difference between "easily" and "neatly". The flatware doesn't nest like other models, I started out trying to make everything line up nicely, but have mostly given up (my husband shares the dishes duty and there's no way he would do it, I'm just happy he gets them into the right sections....). I hope this helps, and we really like using the flatware, and have received compliments from dinner guests.
I just ordered and received the Forttessa Bistro sets (24) I received 6 pieces ea place setting. There is a small fork which I do not see shown and was wondering what this fork is for? I'm extremely pleased with the quality and beauty of this flateware.
Carol W on Apr 2, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have had this flatware for several months and have been very pleased with the quality and appearance. I have those little forks as well. I use them for appetizers.
Will these tend to fall off dishes when carried? I currently have a set which is weighted more to the rear and every time we have guests they always end up dropping the silverware off of their dishes as they carry them.
A shopper on Oct 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Honestly, yes they will. I loved the look of them but the balance of holding them was not comfortableI either.
I did replace mine to a lighter weight selection. Hope this helps you.
Is the knife all one piece or constructed as a blade with a seam at the handle?
A shopper on Nov 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The knife is all one piece. By the way, I really like this flatware. Excellent quality. Nice weight. Very good finish.
Does this style scratch easily, if at all?
Heather P on Feb 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Heather,
My husband and I have not noticed any scratches at all! This is absolutely LOVELY flatware. It is gorgeous, it's the perfect weight and looks just as beautiful as the day that I first loaded it into the dishwasher! I had spent a long, obsessive time looking for flatware, and I'm so glad that this was available!
Is the Fortessa Bistro flatware that is being sold in now in 2018 18/10 stainless steel?
A shopper on Aug 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Knives and forks have 18/10 marks
Large spoons too
