Looking for lunch, passed this restaurant and remembered I had seen the name on Tripadvisor. Seated outside we ordered our food and were very pleased with our starters and then our pasta and risotto dishes. The restaurant was obviously very popular and very busy. While eating the pasta and risotto, the heavens opened and we were engulfed in a thunderstorm.... More

I did not make a reservation in advance, so when I arrived near 8 pm on a summer evening, the hostess found me a spot inside and said that I would only be able to stay for an hour. In the end, I stayed for much longer, and had a wonderful meal. The highlight was something not on the menu:... More

The best food I've eaten in 4 years living in Italy. The food was delicious (particularly the ravioli) and the service was very friendly. It's in a great part of town and I highly recommend it. An absolute must if you're in Parma.

Centrally located, excellent food and wine. Great service too. Also cheaper than dining out at home! Very good value. Can say no more other than I think we were lucky to get a table without a reservation because the place was absolutely packed to the rafters!

La Forchetta is centrally located in a little side street close to the Baptistery. It couldn't be more convenient for visitors to the central sites. We chose to eat lunch at the outside tables in the shade of umbrellas rather than in the long interior of the restaurant. We were very comfortable and the few cyclists pedalling past added to...

Our meal started off well - the wine was good and the appetizers also. We skipped the primo, having had pasta at lunch. Our secondi were just so-so, as was the dessert. What was most disconcerting was the over-efficient service (servers were literally running back and forth) as well as cigarette smoke (despite no-smoking allowed in restaurants in Italy). Overall,...

Make sure to make a reservation - we reserved 3 days in advance and got a table without any problem (for 4 people). This was our 2nd visit to Parma and on both trips we went to La Forchetta. Anything we tried was delicious, service is excellent (they are even using the technique of priming the glasses [glass rinsing ritual]... More

Made a reservation but could only sit outside. Luckily not too cold and a blanket was provided. Service was reasonable...different waiters each time, so no real rapport possible. My son's food was excellent, but my steak arrived rare (I wasn't advised nor was I asked how I wanted it cooked). Probably my fault for not checking. They did take the... More

the place is very nice and confortable, we were able to sit in a large table and still talk to each other with no problem. the menu was prefixed but they changed the dish for those who could not eat cheese without problem. the service was fast and careful and the food very good.

We went there thinking that it was supposed to be among the best restaurants in Parma, although we were a bit dissapointed. One plate was good, but nothing amazing ( slices of meat with parmesan and rucola and bread) and another plate (Rosa di parma) was too salty and heavy with the cheese and ham around it. We also thought... More
