“Much better on the inside than it looks”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

We had been to a trade show and were looking for food at a really strange time of day. I was trying to stick to my difficult diet and my parents were not sure that they were that hungry but we stumbled upon this restaurant and gave it a go.
So, pleased that we did. The service was old fashioned discreet and the food Excellent. They have a huge menu but everything is very fresh and cooked with care. We had Rabbit which fell off the bone, pasta (one of the best my father has eaten) and I had a mixed plate of delicious meats.
They were very accommodating and we all said we will certainly return.

“Possibly the best Italian Pizza outside of Italy”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

This place is our number 1 go to when we fancy going out to celebrate, relax, meet up with friends, or just can't be bothered to cook at home.
The atmosphere is lovely, you can come with any sized group the waiters are always attentive, friendly and helpful.
The food is amazing! We have eaten here around 10+ times and pasta/antipasti/pizza/dessert has always been excellent.
Our favourite are the pizzas, as they truly are like pizzas you would get in Italy - thin, crispy and with tasty toppings, not overloaded with cheese. Also you can watch them being cooked in an open stone oven. They are really big and at £10 good value for money.

Can't recommend this place highly enough!

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
