“Average Food.. Awful management”
Reviewed February 18, 2014 via mobile

My family and business have used forte for catering and their private room. Twice they double booked our private room. The first time we just showed up and another party was in our room. This time they called to tell me after invites for my party have already been sent out. I cancelled of course and will never be giving them business again. Their loss we used them a minimum of 4 times a year but they don't value the customer. Our Christmas party and many others were very disorganized.

“Never let down”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

I've been here at least 10 times for private celebrations, casual dining and group dinners. NOT ONCE I have been disappointed by the food or service. It's great to have a choice of casual seating with an upscale menu if you want to catch a game in the pizzeria side. Also wonderful to have that same menu choice in the more formal side of the restaurant for a more intimate experience. BYOB always a plus.

“Awful food .....poor service!”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

Busy pizzarea, perhaps too busy to be called an itallian restaurant. Extremely poor, slow service. The food portions are gargantuan enough for a army, however the quality is severely lacking. Do not attempt to eat here if you value good Itallian fare. All you will get is a cheap imitation and a downright insulting rendition of someone's idea of what Itallian cooking is. Unfortunately, this lesson did not come cheap....a $75.00 meal that was left on the table. What a waste. PATRONS BEWARE!

“Excellent food”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

Recently went to eat at the restaurant and loved the food. Being a vegetarian, choices are limited but the staff comes up with fabulous dishes. Good idea to make reservation in the restaurant which is upstairs.

“Terrible basic Italian”
Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

We again tried Forte after said we'd never return because we were so disappointed on our last visit. Their lasagna was among the worst I have ever had. The plate looked about as unappetizing as pasta, meat and sauce could have looked; it was as if the cook had just thrown everything together in a pile, and the taste was no more impressive. My wife's pappardelle Quattro was almost as bad. Their prices are very reasonable, their portions are huge, but the food is just not good. Very disappointing once again and our last visit for sure.
