I ate here twice during a business trip to London. First day had a lovely outside seating, great pizza and lovely wine. It was so good I came back again. Tried a different pizza- equally as terrific. All of the food looked great and smelled even better. Great place for Friday dinner!

Amazing food, beautiful wine and fabulous service; this is my favourite restaurant in Islington! It is exceptionally good value and the staff are always very friendly and welcoming. A cut above the chain restaurants you'll find on Upper Street, La Forchetta has a wonderful ambience for all sorts of evenings - dates, friends or the family. Not to be missed!

This is my go to local Italian restaurant that I come to when I want my pizza and pasta fix. Their food is consistently delicious, their pizzas are amongst the best in London, and it's lovely to be served by Italians who are passionate about their food. A must visit!

Walk into La Forchetta, genuinely thought I was in Italy. Tony was beyond expectation, the best service I've had in a while. The choice of food was exceptional and food was as expected - unreal.
