Chef Manricos 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.

    Really great restaurant. We are always trying to find neighbourhood restaurants to support - and as a total bonus we found a new favourite with La Forchetta. The food is spectacular- the room is perfect and service was great. Thank you!

    Third time here and we've never had a bad experience. This time the place was packed but the staff handled everything with efficiency and grace - things may have taken a bit longer than usual but at no time did we feel ignored or mistreated; kudos to all of the staff!

    Great gnocchi, great pizza. The scallops amazing, but you might want to advise that there is only 3 per plate for those who wish to share - it was a little disappointing in that regard.

    4.5 out of 5. Wasn’t perfection but very good. We will certainly be back at some point. It was a special occasion treat. All three of us enjoyed ourselves. Thank you. (It was kinda last minute. Quickly checked Italian restaurants in Burnaby. Was 4th on random list. Liked that it was close. Homemade pasta; yes please. I don’t mind paying more for good food. I’d vaguely heard your name before, so that is good that it rang a bell 🙂)

    Second time there and they were jumping busy and the two on staff were definitely running. Delicious food and fair prices along with a modern Classic energetic environment this place is a welcome addition to our developing Capitol Hill area. The chef even came out front to say hello and thank you.

    We thought that it was the same as before but something has definitely changed. The Tiramisu used to be square and not salty, but this time it was round and salty, so we suspect it changed owners in the last 2 years

    We visited Saturday May 7th before Mother's Day and it seemed that they did not have enough staff. There were two front staff members and they tried to be calm and quick however everything took a while - ordering, the food itself, asking for more water, asking for the dessert menu a second time which our server forgot to grab (I don't blame him). We ordered two desserts for 5 people because we were full - we all got spoons but no extra plates so we just managed by having three people finish off the rest of the desserts (one used the affogato espresso pitcher as a dish)- didn't want to bother the server but also knew it would take more time. I totally understand that the restaurant was full and they were stressed. The food was delicious, it just wasn't a 100% positive experience and I felt uncomfortable throughout.

    Waiter was friendly but only came by four times take order, service food, desert menu and the bill. Seem short staff but it impact service of course. The main course also took a long time. The pasta (all of them) were amazing but the sauces, while good, nothing to rave about as others costing same or less are better. Did not have desert.

    Owner/waiter was great. The food was good but took quite a long time to come out. We didn’t expect to wait that long for our food, as it wasn’t busy and only 530pm. We had three hungry kids with us. I’ve had friends who have had good experiences but mine could have been better.

    My pasta was a too al dente for my liking, but that might just be a personal preference. Service was great, friendly and attentive. Portions we decent size & overall very tasty. The 3 of shared mussels & calamari appies, 1 pasta & 2 delicious gnocchi dishes, 1 panacotta, and we were stuffed. 2 non alcoholic beers & 2 bottles of Chianti, bill came to $270 + tip - we’ll definitely be back.

    On Tuesday April 12th, we have had a wonderful dinner at La Forchetta. We were pleasantly surprised to see this true gem in North Burnaby. The restaurant has a pleasant vibe the moment you go in. It is very clean, modern and welcoming. There is a beautiful patio in the back for the outdoor seating. We absolute loved everything: ambiance, food, service, ALL! The food choices are amazing. The only "problem" was to select what to order first! Carmine was extremely pleasant, very attentive and kind. We shared some great conversations with him. He is a prime example of the excellent customer service! A+ Carmine. Chef Manrico came to great us personally and wanted to make sure that we are satisfied with our delicious food. Also very kind lady came (my apologies, forgot name) and greeted us like a family. Overall, we were so happy with our restaurant and we will be back for sure. Truly Yours, Sanja and Slobodan
