Lovely food but service is a bit too quick!

We ordered starters (mussels which were fabulous and the smoked cheese which was delicious), and for main course pizza and pasta. Everything was flavoursome and tasted authentic. Our... read more

The food at La Forcola is fantastic. It is clearly very popular with the locals, which is always a good sign! Even though it doesn't open until 9pm (difficult for our 6 year old!) it seems full of families and groups of friends - you'd probably need a reservation at the weekend. The first time I had the Popeye pizza,... More

Starters were really good although it took too long for the bruschetta (nice portion tho for 2€). Mains, a mix of pizzas and pasta, were great. We highly recommend the TARTUFO TRIANGLES. Way too hot when we were seated but lower the temperature as we requested it. The atmosphere was nice and service was good but not outstanding. We will... More

We stayed in Valancia for two weeks. We ate out every night, and this was the only restaurant that we returned to. Had the pastas the first visit - the mixed seafood one was fantastic. Pizzas on the second visit - again, very good. Lovely service from staff - very attentive and helpful without being in the way. If you're... More

My wife and I ate at La Forcola on Saturday 16th May and were very impressed. The decor and atmosphere set the right tone for a very good quality meal. It was a pleasure not to sit under stark fluorescent lighting as is the common theme for most Spanish restaurants. La Forcola have created a proper 'Italian Bistro' feel and... More

What a great find this was. We wanted to have an Italian meal on one of our evenings in Valencia and found this place, we were not disappointed, in fact we couldn't believe how fresh and authentic the food in this Italian restaurant were. I'm really surprised this restaurant isn't higher up on the trip advisor list but then being... More

We chose this little Italian resteraunt as it was with in walking distance from our Hotel we were so glad we did. The food and the service was excellent it was a shame that the place was not full, it would have made for a better atmosphere, but it did not spoil our evening of celibration, the Carva from Italy...

Despite being in Valencia for only a week and being pre-disposed to try new places, I ate here twice in the week as the food, ambience and staff were so good. Admittedly the second time, the food wasn't as good at the first but nevertheless I'd definitely recommend this restaurant which is a bit tucked away. The pasta menu has... More

We have lived in Valencia for the years now, and this is one of our favorites. Authentic Italian food, great wine and really good service which is often hard to find in Valencia. Also very reasonably priced. You wouldn't expect such a nice restaurant walking down that road, but it is a little gem. We go back regularly.
