Excellent dinner with wife and friends..Although we had been to Parma numerous times, it was my sister-in-law who recommended we put this on our list. Now it is a must every time we are in town..

One of the best meals we had during our entire trip of Italy. Food was just amazing. The pumpkin stuffed ravioli was to absolutely die for. The staff was incredible and helpful. We had a very romantic, enjoyable night. I would recommend reservations as it fills up quickly.

Great atmosphere, very reasonable prices for the quality. The dessert is awesome. Parmigiano Suffle is delicious as is the pasta. Try the pana cotta and chocolate suffle for dessert (make sure you order both!). Wine selection is extensive and reasonably priced, good local wines. We had a bordello from Montalcino. Highly recommend.

Excellent food and friendly staff. We were seated at the outdoor table which was ready for our booking. We started with some very good wine and the some delicious starters, parmigiano, fried pasta, salads all were good. Our main courses were very good too... Especially the Tortellis ! Lovey food and good service made for a wonderful evening.

Excellent service and food. We spent 3 nights in Parma and this was the highlight. The owner and staff are very attentive and meno from antipasti to primi were delicious. Their tiramissu is incredible as they make the cake in the restaurant (not all do). Worth booking in advance. Will be back if in Parma again.

We love Italian food and the simplicity and flavors are always so admirable but sometimes the step up can be done with flair and adherence to the flavors you expect. This place is unbelievable. We made reservations based on other Trip Advisor reviews and had dinner in a beautiful Friday night. It is easy to find - Parma is small.... More

Description
La Forchetta" restaurant is situated in the heart of the old town centre of Parma, in one of the most beautiful and oldest buildings in the city, just a few steps from the Duomo and the Battistero. It is family-run and offers the finest of Parmesan cuisine as well as fish dishes, accompanied by the best wines. Tortelli stuffed with spinach and pumpkin, duchessa di Parma, braised veal cheeks, fish crudité, scallops in a salt and pepper crust, lobster tagliolini, tuna steaks and Catalan salad, are just a sample of the variety of our menu. Our bread and pasta are all home-made in the old-fashioned way and we are particularly careful in our choice of ingredients. It is also possible to eat outside. A visit to La Forchetta means enjoying a moment of pleasure, a delight to the taste buds, in the city of taste and fine cuisine!
