Great homemade pasta!

La Forchetta is a lovely restaurant in the centre of Parma. The food is delicious and the service very friendly. Try the tortelli and the sparkling red wine!

We had an excellent meal from start to finish- antipasto to tortelli to fish to dessert. All superb. Outdoor dining on a quiet lane behind the duomo. Reservations necessary. Loved it!

We had a first-rate dinner at La Forchetta. Everything was excellent, but the fish (especially the turbot) was outstanding, as were the souffles (cheese souffle as a starter for one of us, chocolate souffle as a dessert for the other). A truly top choice, with attentive service and a very pleasant atmosphere.

Just around the corner from the Duomo, this restaurant serves lovely, authentic Italian food to locals and those that find it on TripAdvisor and are wise enough to book first! We have seldom seen so many people turned away but the place was truly full with mainly Italians enjoying a great night out. They coped very well with my diary... More

We dined here twice during our stay in Parma. Extensive well priced menu with good wines. Cheese soufflé, pasta dishes & mains all quality. Relaxed atmosphere for indoor/outdoor dining. Staff friendly & helpful. Bookings essential as very popular with locals. Highly recommended.

Nice elegant place, lots of beautiful food and wine on the menu. A fairly standard Parma menu. One dish that is a little unusual is a dish of shellfish that is cooked very slowly in something that looks like a cellophane dish. It preserves the aroma and flavor and the broth.

We visited Parma on Saturday and as we explored the inner city we came across this restaurant and thought it looked a good prospect. Being a lunchtime we were able to get a table for 5 inside (you will probably need to book in advance in the evenings). Our expectations were more than met. The food was very good, the... More

In a city known for its food, La Forchetta does not disappoint. We stopped by to try the delicacies of the Emilian kitchen and were not disappointed. The green pasta with ham, aged parmesan, prosciutto di parma, and fried bread were all winners, though everything else we tried was excellent too. Prices are unbelievably low for the quality of food.... More
