While food in Italy is almost always good, this restaurant was great. Good service, amazing food and creative desserts. They serve local favorites and Italian standards. We will definitely return when we are in Parma.

Found this restaurant from the tripadvisor and it was a great one. The food were excellent. The restaurant was quite busy when we arrive (12ish) we’re lucky we could get a table. Will come back whenever we are in Parma 👍

We had a good dinner there. The appetizer was good with the fluffy parma bread and ham + parmezzano regano but that you can find anywhere in Parma. My wife had seafood not much sea-bass in it. I had some veal. Nothing special but good.

We were exceptionally lucky to get the only table available which was on the small terrace outside. Whilst it was a little cold outside they have very good heaters and blankets. We went for the cheese souffle to start and OMG it was simply amazing!!...More

La Forchetta" restaurant is situated in the heart of the old town centre of Parma, in one of the most beautiful and oldest buildings in the city, just a few steps from the Duomo and the Battistero. It is family-run and offers the finest of Parmesan cuisine as well as fish dishes, accompanied by the best wines. Tortelli stuffed with spinach and pumpkin, duchessa di Parma, braised veal cheeks, fish crudité, scallops in a salt and pepper crust, lobster tagliolini, tuna steaks and Catalan salad, are just a sample of the variety of our menu. Our bread and pasta are all home-made in the old-fashioned way and we are particularly careful in our choice of ingredients. It is also possible to eat outside. A visit to La Forchetta means enjoying a moment of pleasure, a delight to the taste buds, in the city of taste and fine cuisine!
