First visit. Very friendly staff. Food was very good. I will revisit if I’m back around this neighborhood. Worth trying.
The food and service are always amazing! We had the risotto and a pizza. So good!
Very attentive server, great food, quiet spot for lunch.
Extremely delicious food. I am in love With the grilled octopus on burrata. Great cocktails, you can taste every layer of flavour.
Every dish we ordered was wonderful! Especially the pasta, some of the best if not the best noodles I have ever had. The perfect balance of chewy and bouncy. Also the truffle pizza was perfection. You can tell everything was crafted by a master chef.
This place is an absolute gem. The pasta and burrata were phenomenal, the service was friendly and quick, and the ambience was clean and polished. The quality was on par with Osteria Savio Volpe, but here there was ample parking and you could get a table fast, and the vibe was more laid back.
Both our dinners were excellent and service was fantastic! Will definitely go again and recommend it to others.
Mixed reviews on food, the Pacherri is so excellent, my favorite dish there. The veal marsala entree was good but not outstanding. The drinks were good, service was wonderful once we got their attention, but took an effort, had to track down servers every time. It was a busy night, ambience very nice.
The pasta is amazing! All the pasta is made in house. The ravioli is my favorite with brown butter and sage!
I usually don't like to leave one star reviews, especially during these times, but I wanted to share our experience, as it was definitely one to remember and not in a good way. We visited for my Dad's birthday and were looking forward to trying the fresh, homemade pasta everyone seemed to be raving about online, as all of the posted photos looked amazing. The reason for the one star is not because of the lovely trendy but cozy ambiance, or the really ingenious washroom waiting notification system(!), but because service was EXTREMELY slow (on a Wednesday night). Our party of 6 waited 2 hours for our mains (with a larger party of 10 who got seated and ordered an hour after us only waiting about 20 minutes between appetizers and mains), with no explanation as to why, despite not all of the tables being occupied. We were also told at arrival that we had to vacate our table after 1 hour for another party (so we rushed to order and eat our appetizers), only to get moved to another table mid way, but again with no explanation as to why (our original table was vacant the entire time). It was only after our party wanted to leave that our mains finally showed up (horrible timing), and most of the pasta dishes were not hot and dry (and my Dad's veal was soggy and chewy). The wait staff and only chef that night eventually came to apologize and explain that they took on too many reservations even though they knew they were understaffed, but by then our experience was ruined. We unfortunately will not be returning, but if you still want to try this place based on the majority of good reviews, we only suggest checking how busy it is beforehand to hopefully avoid the same experience we had!
Food was good. Service was quite rude.
We had a beautiful dinner. Great place. The lights could be dimmed abit. The led lights are too bright. That’s the Only thing I would change.
Our server was amazing! Knowledgeable on the entire menu and had great etiquette. Service was phenomenal! My daughter highly recommends the meatballs”melt in your mouth”.
The food and service were fantastic. We'll be back!
Good Service , Good food
we will recommend it to friends
This our second time back and I brought my daughter and her husband to check it out. They loved the food and the interior of the restaurant all around we will be back. I woul recommend.
Wow, what an amazing restaurant! We were looking for somewhere to go in Burnaby but this place is a destination in and of itself, worth a visit no matter where you are in Metro Van. The food was excellent, the cocktails were delicious and the service was a perfect 10!
We had a great date night out. Restaurant was not too busy early on a Saturday night, so noise level wasn’t an issue. Pricing was very reasonable and food was delicious. We will certainly visit again.
Food are delicious, staffs are friendly and helpful. Gave us a nicely written greeting words when serving dessert, as requested when I made the reservation on OpenTable. Definitely will visit again.
Service was really good as waitress was friendly and caring.
However, food is beyond my expectation. Spaghetti was blend, taste nothing. Risotto rice was so hard to bite. .. never again
Will definitely come back. Nice staff and ambiance.
First visit here and it was a lovely experience. Very tasty meal and friendly service.
Wonderful service and delicious food!
Good food,Good service
It is a quaint restaurant. Service team are friendly and welcoming. Food was spectacular, and everyone enjoyed their choices. Definitely on our favorite list in Burnaby.
Incredible first experience at this restaurant. We loved every bit of the experience. Especially when chef came around to check on all the tables. 👍🏼👍🏼
We had a really great dinner at La Forchetta. The food was super delicious and the service was excellent. This is a great neighbourhood spot for authentic Italian cuisine.
A wonderful lunch out with good friend. Excellent service, delicious food as always.
Covid precautions in place, make dining indoors safer.
We had a lovely evening for a special birthday party. The food was delicious. We each had an appetizer and main dish and everything was great. The wine list was also great! Everyone enjoyed themselves. There was 6 of us. Covid friendly protocols, we will definitely be returning. I found this on OpenTable and glad we checked it out! Cute restaurant!
Small clean delightful discovery- delicious generous portions, full Italian menu options, not rushed or pushy as we realized when we left that we had stayed well past closing time.
It was so good to come here last night and feel comfortable that everyone who was here had been checked for their vaccination proof. The place was packed and the atmosphere was relaxing. The food was brilliant as usual. Love that everything to keep us safe was done with no drama.
The service was great. Food delicious would recommend.
Exceptional Pasta, wine and service. Been many times since moving to Burnaby, highly recommend.
The food was so-so. Had a couple not so bad dishes and couple not so great dishes.
Excellent food and wine choices. Fresh homemade pasta like you’ve never had. We’ve been here before and we stay late so the owner just sits at the bar and waits for us to finish our visit. Just like going to your friend’s house.
Wonderful experience. The servers were phenomenal and the food was tasty! We had a great time.
Food and service both excellent . And I like the ambiance and clean environment 👍
We looked at the menus on their website, saw a few items that we want to try , however when we got there the menu was reduced, so was a little bit disappointed. It's probably before of covid that they reduced the menu but it would be nice if we get a heads-up before
Amazing pasta dishes...
Eva was an amazing server and the bartender was quite impressive!!
The whiskey sours they made was one of the best, and introduced my mom to it! We loooved it and ordered another round!
The food was great and we finished it completely!! Couldn't have asked for a better dinner!
I swore to myself that I wouldn't eat dinner again, but it was too good to pass!
Thank you guys!!!!
