Fabulous restaurant. Great service and exceptional food. Try the parmigiano cheese soufflé appetizer and the fried pasta. The pumpkin tortelli was the best we've ever had. All of the food was delicious!

It was a real treat to eat at this restaurant. Everything tasted delicious, was creativlly cooked and served and was a feast to look at and to eat. Memorable dishes were the Parmesan souffle and the tagliatelli with lobster as well as the Duchessa chicken as well as the Sangiovese wine. We're definitely returning.

Food excellent with a good range of fish and seafood as well as more traditional dishes. Staff friendly and helpful. Wine list has strong representation of local wines as well as more well known Italian wines. Clients range from families with young children to groups of young people and older couples and groups.

We stopped in Parma enroute from Milan to Tuscany. The down itself was pretty sleepy but we found this restaurant to be an enjoyable lunch spot. Nice decor and pleasant staff. Breads were delicious. Pasta dishes were also tasty. Recommend for lunch if in Parma.

Description
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!
