About Us

AQUA Forte is a harmonious story of friendship and a shared love for the culture and tradition of Italian cuisine. From diverse professional backgrounds, Paolo, Roberto and Ian pursued their dream of owning and running an Italian restaurant in Sri Lanka’s most historic and beautiful city; the old Galle Fort.

AQUA Forte was brought to life in May 2019 and has been introducing the fine art of Italian food, wines and Italian heritage to all those who dined at the restaurant ever since.
