“Absolutely amazing”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Took on to write this review about La Forchetta in islington because is one of the best Italian restaurants I've been in a long time and I had the nieces pizza there,
they had a wood fire pizza oven and is one of the things that makes an Italian restaurant that more authentic .
Me and my friend we really enjoyed our time and would definitely go back there next time were in London
Thanks again la forchetta

“One of the best Italian Restaurants in London”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

It's rare to find such an attractive variety of tasty main course and entrees...excellent deserts as well! Been there with my family few times and every time it gets better and better. Service was cordial and attentive and without pretense...Tony is a consummate host...cozy tables and seats and ample space with pleasant decor... It was like an easy trip to Italy without hopping on a plane. The Pizza OMG you only have them in Italy. Last time I tried the Lobster as they installed a lobster tank recently and I could not finish the plate, massive portion and properly done. I only can say BRAVO to the chef and to the owner.

“Pessimo servizio...Terrible service and food.”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We've been here to have a lunch and has been a disappointment since the beginning.
The staff was very unprofessional, the waiter was following a girl, probably in training, but he had to be the first to learn how to deal with customers.
They just let us in without saying that they were closing, so in the meantime we were having lunch they start bringing inside tables and chairs.
The waiter was sitting playing with his mobile and he pulled his shirt out of his pants, so he could feel more comfortable.
We had 2 pizzas ...they were hard to cut... the pizza dough was horrible...how can you open an Italian Restaurant without having a good Pizzaiolo????
Please Fire him or at least ask him to learn from a real Pizzaiolo how to make a
proper pizza!
We were in rush because everybody were waiting for us to leave.
So we did.
We won't go back there anymore, and please, if you are looking for an Italian restaurant (I'm Italian so I can tell about it) don't go there ....

Had an office lunch here for a party of about 12

The service was fine but as we were initially the only guests when we arrived at 3pm that is not unreasonable

The food can only be described a average - nothing wrong with it but certainly nothing exceptional.

I think you could easily do better nearby - see my review of Sacre Cour
