It looks like a family business. The owner, the host, the waitresses and even the chef looking after everything being perfect. The cherry on top live music with two different musicians that are simply great. We spent 20 min trying to choose a restaurant from...More

La Forchetta is a family affair- and they LOVE to make Italian food! Our kind, enthusiastic waiter, Mario, encouraged me to try their homemade chicken ravioli with cheese sauce and I was so impressed! The gnocchi bolognese was also wonderful! We were drawn in by...More

Our family walked here one evening for a small dinner of wood fired pizza. The service was excellent and the pizza was tasty and hit the spot. There was a musician playing guitar and it was a little hard to hear conversation since we were...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal here. The place itself meeds a bit of a makeover but this is certainly not reflected in the food. The pasta was excellent as was the puzza. Our only minor complaint was that the salmon carpaccio had a bit too...More

Walking into La Forchetta, it's easy to think you are at yet another international pizza joint. However, once you begin to talk to the staff, you change your mind. The chef and owner is Italian. His children work in the restaurant. The stuffed pasta (ravioli,...More

We dined twice at this charming restaurant enjoying the pizza, homemade pastas, and caprese salad. The lamb ravioli were outstanding as are the wine choices by the glass. The chef is from Italy and embraces farm to table sourcing. The waiters are friendly and helpful.

I had read the great reviews on this place and was excited to go. Initially I was disappointed because I had pasta pesto on my mind. La Forchetta has a limited menu of pastas with tomato sauce. No pesto, carbonara, etc. So I decided to...More
