I went to Forchetta with the goal of eating a good italian pizza after some days of rice and chicken and grilled meat..... I was positively impressed by the restaurant and the service, but honestly the food wasn't so good as I expected, nothing close...More

This resturant provides Italian dishes , i loved their salad, pizza and steaks. Some issue with parking since it's limited but still ok 😄. Most of their staff are well experienced about most of the stuff they provide so you can get some nice advises...More

We went to this restaurant because we needed Italian food. The staff was very friendly and accommodated our large group of foreigners(20) in the family section. The food was delicious.

The food was very average, a very thick cream of chicken soup, fettuccine alferado was just okay and cheese stuffed beef was nothing special either..I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
