About
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.

Luckily the other places we wanted to try were closed. Not too crowdy, outside the tourist area and very fine food.

Great food. Parma ham and Parmeggiano as antipasto were to die for. I took the lamb which was tender and tasty whilst my wife took fresh pasta with prawns which looked great. Desert was to die for. Great food and great service
