Italian
Chef Manrico's passion is inspired by the love for his home region of Pescara, Abruzzo. The flavors, scents and the colors of the neighborhood, ‘Borgo Marino’, is where his inspiration came from. Cooking in the early mornings on the fishing boats, savoring the smell of the land and sea is where it all began. "This is my cuisine, made simply of the scents, freshness of the ingredients, and respect of the tradition. ‘La Forchetta’ will be my platform in which I can share this culinary love, with all of you" Chef Manrico

La Forchetta Burnaby brings you fresh pasta made daily, a variety of fish and meat dishes along with more traditional pizza and region specific Italian favourites.

    Went for our 28th wedding anniversary. The staff is super amazing, fantastic service. The calamari was crispy, light and delicious. Hubby had the featured pasta with rose alla vodka sauce with bacon, amazing and makes my mouth water just thinking of it. I had the gnocchi bolognese also mouth watering. The portions were pretty big but with hubby's help mine was polished off too. Had the banana split for dessert cause there is always room for dessert. Thought I would just have a couple bites but we finished it off it was so good. Ferro Roche and pistachio ice cream❤️. We spent almost 2 hours enjoying the food and the ambiance. Hubby is normally an eat and run guy. Thoroughly enjoyable and delicious time.

    Server was fantastic and immediately made my daughter a special non alcoholic drink for her high school grad. Later my daughter said the pasta she ordered was the best in her life and restaurant was perfect and really made her day more special (we had never eaten here before)

    A great meal as always. The calamari was lightly battered and very well seasoned, crispy and tender inside. The steak was perfectly done, but the crab linguini was the standout dish of the night! The noodles a perfect al-dente, and topped with a truly delicious crab meat sauce. We capped off the evening with their famous Tiramisu. Still one of the best I've had with a strong espresso flavor to it. Highly recommend La Forchetta for date nights, fine dining, and in our case, celebrating our anniversary.

    La Forcetta never disappoints! Simply delicious Italian food in a beautiful setting. The Pizza twists are a favourite for kids and adults alike.

    La Forchetta has been my go-to restaurant for special occasions since moving to Vancouver 5 years ago. Each time I go the food is better than the last - went here again yesterday evening for a partner’s birthday and our meal was perfect down to the drinks, free birthday sangria, and dessert special (strawberry tiramisu). Always more than enough food to go around especially when sharing, and after an appetizer, 2 pastas, a pizza and dessert we were stuffed and still had food to take home afterwards. You can tell the chef has poured his life into his food and restaurant. The service is always friendly and personable, and the ambience is intimate. Highly recommend!

    Food was very good. Our only concern was the rather small portion sizes. We are used to Italian restaurants where the pasta serving are large. We enjoyed the flavours but left wanting more quantity.
