“The best Italian food I had in Islington”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

I have been visiting La Forchetta in Upper street for the past 3 years now - and love it. I have never had better Risotto in any other italian - and I've tried quite a few. The lasagnia is amazing and so is the ravioli. The Pizza's in La Forchetta are the best pizza you will have in London. Also check the specials, dont miss it. Ending with a tiramisu is an absolute must.

This is a lovely Italian restaurant and the food is fresh, this place would be lovely for romantic meal or for group of friends. Highly recommend!

If you want good wholesome italian food in London - La Forchetta Angel is a hidden gem!!

“Poor and not that comfortable”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Good location but that's if after the lack of comfort and food quality for the same price as the competition.

“Excellent Italian Restaurant!”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We ate lunch here today for the first time with some friends and the service and food were both superb! Every dish was fresh and so delicious. We had 2 small children with us and the waiters were so welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. We all agreed the food was some of the best Italian food we've eaten in London. What an excellent find. Can't wait to go back.

Thoroughly recommend that you check this place out for yourself. You're missing out!

“Best Italian food along upper Street”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

For a friends birthday i decided to treat her to a meal, we were invited in by the manager as at first we weren't sure of the menu and it was a little empty for a Saturday night. Best choice we ever made, the garlic pizza bread was very tasty for starter and arrived quickly. I had the lamb and mushrooms with spinach and potatoes for my main, it was delicious with lots of flavour, my friend had the sea bass with lemon the sauce was creamy and the broccoli was cooked perfectly. I felt like i was actually eating in Italy, the staff were very friendly and inviting and accommodating to any order change as my friend wanted some extra spinach and without hesitation it was provided. This is a lovely restaurant and the food is perfect, this place would be lovely for romantic meal or for group of friends. Highly recommend!

“Italiano”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

Food was excellent, service excellent, Miguel a very happy fella!! Prices a tad high, plus a 10% service charge was added to the bill, (and we don't remember seeing a note to this effect on the menu), but all in all a good evening, and close to the Premier Inn, which suited us.
