Very pleased. Showed up and the restaurant was fully booked. I was seated immediately considering I had a reservation. You won’t be disappointed.
Lovely meal, very impressed with the food and atmosphere. Low key but very enjoyable Italian meal.
Wow! What a gem. Fantastic experience in a wonderful neighborhood restaurant. We felt like locals, and the staff treated us so well. Rave reviews about the delicious risotto in our group. The rosemary bread was divine. Dessert was a treat as well (semifreddo). Highly recommended for those looking for a terrific Toronto dining experience.
Nice cozy restaurant. Food was good and reasonably priced. Offers a decent prix fixe meal (not available on weekends). A word of caution for OpenTable users: for prix fixe menu, you must choose the 3-course option. Restaurant will not allow you to choose 2-course option if you reserved using OpenTable.
Would recommend the Gnocchi and Rosemary Bread for sure. The fish dish I ordered the Calamari was a touch overcooked. Server from Venezuela was extremely personable, knowledgeable and friendly.
Another great meal from Forchetta. Roman and his staff are first rate. Great wine selection and wonderful pasta.
Very good service. Food was incredible and wine pairing was perfect. Was fairly quiet for a Friday night, which was nice. Dessert was phenomenal as well
Could have been a better assortment of appetizers. Mains were great. Dessert menu lacking a bit as well.
Restaurant was empty, dead quiet and it had no ambiance. food was good, nothing special
One of our favorite places to eat in Toronto. We have been several times. The food is fantastic! Mushroom risotto is my favorite dish there. The grilled calamari is so good.. the grill char tastes like a summer bbq even in the middle of winter. The service is very attentive and the waiters are so personable and nice to speak with. Will absolutely go again .. and even again and highly recommend La Forchetta!
I find it very difficult to get good vegetarian fare. I’ve been to top restaurants that can’t seem to get it right. The mushroom ravioli here was spectacular and I didn’t pay an arm and a leg for it!
The app (meats and cheese) 12-13/pp large amount serves 2 was flavourful… I had the rack of lamb… it was ok…. wish it was seasoned more or have a mint chutney instead of what they provided…the smashed potato was sub par and the green beans were green beans… what else can I say about it… ambience was nice (some loud patrons sitting around… kinda made it deafening). Waiter was nice and friendly and the staff wished everyone well when we were leaving… so, overall I would say 4/5…. my meal was nothing to brag about…however, the others order the linguini seafood and the pasta (noci) and they enjoyed it…. I’d try it again but a different meal…
