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.

We ate here on the strength of reviews and we were not disappointed. The place opens at 9 and we arrived about 20 past - we hadn't booked and that appeared to be a problem though they were v.accommodating and gave us a table until 10.30pm. The service was great - very friendly and warm, taking time to explain that... More

We went here on the strength of the amazing reviews on this site. It was quiet on a Tuesday night. Service was attentive, and I had a very nice glass of wine. The food was nice, and there is nothing I can fault with this restaurant, but it didn't stand out in any way for us.

Just had dinner at this restaurant based on reviews on T/A. Restaurant is located in the locals area of the city. The starters were ok, but the mushroom ravioli in truffle sauce and baked sea bass were delicious. Did not have pizza but they looked good coming out of the wood burning oven. Overall a really good local spot if... More

We discovered this gem one of the last days of our visit to Valencia, so I have only had one lunch here. Unfortunately. In my opinion it is a perfect restaurant. They serve exceptionally good italian food, the service is very good in an informal way, and the restaurant itself is very nice. La Forcola is at the top of... More
