Excellent restaurant

You need to like Parmesan in this restaurant, luckily I do. Great service and very good food. Didn't have seafood on this occasion but plates going out of kitchen looked good. Really enjoyed the meal here.

We passed by Parma on the way and checked Tripadvisor for the best restaurants and the choice was on La Forchetta. Great food, friendly staff, and a very good location.

One of the best resto in Parma city center. You cam go both for traditional dishes (all excellent), but seafood is also stunning. Wines are excellent and definitely not overpriced. The tables outside offer another plus when the weather allows.

The parmigiano and the prosciutto for starters was excellent. The sliced Angus meat was also very, very good. Tried a local beer at the end, Camou, which I highly recommend. The service was very good, right up to when we had to wait for almost 30 minutes to get the check.

Food was excellent. We had starters, first and second courses. They were all excellent. Wine was also very good. Prices are a bit above average for Parma and for this kind of food.

We enjoyed our meal but the waiting staff were not as attentive as we are used to. The cheese sauce that came with the soufflé was fabulous. I would recommend the sorbetto - extremely refreshing at the end of a meal.

After walking around parma on a hot day in July we visited this place which thankfully had an ac we could cool down in. The decor inside was also very pleasing and contributes well to the overall experience. Unfortunately we weren't very hungry (primarily due to the heat) however we did have some lovely prosciutto e melone and a platter... More
