Great Service

Eight of us visited this restaurant for a friend's 50th birthday. The staff couldn't have been better, from the moment we arrived to the time we left. Food was very good and filling and the wine we selected was reasonably priced and tasty.

We had the 3 course set menu, really varied choice on the set menu and very reasonably priced. Clearly very good chefs and ingredients. We really liked the complimentary pizza nibles and biscuits, he service was excellent very attentive, friendly and is the best service we have ever had. We will definitely be going back!

We went to Forenza as a little weekend treat this month. While it does cost a touch more than your generic chain restaurant it is absolutely worth it. Michael and the entire team are friendly and attentive, full of recommendations (I had the special Lamb and was recommended a delicious red wine to complement) and the food was great. I... More

I dined here a few months ago on a date. This is quite a large restaurant, however it's very dated and feels quite stuffy - so wasn't really the romantic setting we were going for! The food was very basic, I ordered a pasta dish and the sauce was too simple for the price - something I could have made... More

I was staying in Maidenhead overnight, and fancied a change from the chain restaurants that are on Bridge St, and am very glad that I did. This a really nice Italian, with a good range of food. As I was on a budget due to a work overnight allowance, I opted for the Set menu at £16.50 which was really... More

The restaurant look good from the outside but it is dated inside. Chairs and china all need changing. It's a long time since I've seen mirrors on supporting columns. The artwork adorning the walls isn't in keeping and could be displayed in a much better manner. The restaurant wasn't busy at all therefore we unfortunately got all 4 waiters attending... More

There is nothing wrong with it, I suppose, but its just not very exciting. The menu is fairly traditional Italian and the food is OK; the portions are a reasonable size; the service is quite attentive. Overall it is OK, but I would hope to get better than "just OK" when I am paying £9.50 for a starter and £19.50... More

I love Forenza's it's a family run restaurant, great food and service. Michael is brilliant with his specials which always sound so succulent and his wine recommendations are always spot on. Of course great food comes at a price so it is not cheap, but I do visit regularly. Keep it up Michael!
