“Great service..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

Stopped by this place for drinks and appies one night and we were blown away by the appies suggested by Yaser - we had the funghi gorgonzola and gamberi piccante - not to mention the best lemon drop martinis! We made arrangements to return a couple of nights later and told Yaser that he could choose the menu for us - he did a wonderful job choosing the salads (caesar and caprese) main courses (lobster ravioli and prawns wrapped in prosciutto) wine (an Argentenian Malbec - and a shared dessert (Kuchen). The food was probably not the best we have ever had but the service, overall experience and surroundings more than made up for it. We thought that would be it for this latest trip, but found ourselves back again for our final dinner. We decided to go light this time...sharing caprese salad and a pizza. The pizza was delicious - wonderful thin crust...and this time we shared the tiramisu which was spectacular! Yaser once again provided the best service! We will definitely be going back to La Forchetta when visiting San Jose del Cabo next time.

“Great italian food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

First time ever to Cabo. This place was my wife's and I last night of our honeymoon and Yazr, our server, didn't disappoint. He was very friendly, always ready for anything. He presented our bottle of vine correctly, kept it on ice for us. I took his suggestion of the lobster tortellini and was amazed at how well this was. Being italian I cook italian food all the time; I grew up on it. This was fantastic italian food. The carpaccio was tender and melted in your mouth. All of the food great. The chef even made us a small cake to celebrate our honeymoon which was very nice. Yazr told us to save the candle in the cake for our first anniversary which we are doing.

Thank you Yazr for helping us have a memorable time down here.

“Ok but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

just had dinner here tonight. Owner greeted us upon arrival which was nice. I had the Penne Gorgonzola which was ok at best. Wife had a Capriccio pizza which was good but no where near outstanding. They need to really work on the menu items. taste them...this place cant hold a candle to La Dolce in town square. With the many great choices popping up in San Jose they need to separate themselves and unfortunately they have some work to do. Very nice owner.. i hope he reads and corrects.

Thanks Mr. Simmons, I hope you give us another try, we'll sure learn from our customers and get better every time. We are an italian restaurant, and we say with a twist since we are not consider traditional italian, like the existing italian restaurants in town, but we feel we are unique in our way having very original italian and fushion dishes that are different to the existing italian restaurants in town. The pizza your wife had is our best seller and have had great reviews on it, but again is a pizza that has brie cheese and prosciutto which is a rare combination, but in my opinion very tasteful. Thanks again and hope to see you soon.

“Needs work”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

Nice new location in a developing area in San Jose, but this place was a real disappointment. The wine selection was good, and the service was great, but after the soup, it went way down hill. The pasta entree was poor, and my shrimp on some sort of lemon salad was over cooked and an odd combo. Our waiter Yaser was great!

We are sorry the meal wasnt´t what you expected. On our menu we try having diffrerent recipes than the traditional italian recipes, which is what makes us unique, we hope you come back and try us again so we can have the oportunity to redeem ourselves.

“Amazing food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

My husband and I decided to give La Forchetta a try since it was close to our hotel and their menu looked quite delicious. Our waiter was Yaser and he was attentive, knowledgeable and very friendly. The only thing better than the great service was the amazing food. I had the best beef filet I have ever had, it was so tender and flavorful it will forever be my standard now in the world of beef. My husband had a pasta dish with various seafood and he was equally as pleased. We ended our night with their delicious tiramisu and cappuccino.Their cocktails are masterfully mixed and their wine list was full of options. We highly recommend La Forchetta when dining in San Jose Del Cabo!
