Italian
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.

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.

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.

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

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!

It was fantastic. The food was great. The service was excellent. Had a great conversation with the bartender about after dinner cocktails. Let him make something he though we would like and he was spot on. We weren't rushed. Had a great, relaxed meal, an after dinner cocktail. A definite yes from me.

First and foremost the food was awesome … Handmade pasta and fresh quality ingredients make for an excellent dining experience.
Service was top notch as was the ambiance. Everything including the bathrooms were clean and orderly. Can’t recommend this place enough.

Great food, excellent service. I’m sure when the plexi glass comes down they could transform it into more of a white tablecloth experience. Didn’t need a bottle of hand sanitizer on the table.

A single employee is hosting, serving, taking orders, and making drinks. (Very pleasant and hard working.)

From the time we sat down and had someone take our drink orders was probably 10 - 15 minutes.

From the time we ordered drinks to the time we received them was close to 15/20 minutes.

We enjoyed a quiet and relaxing weekday lunch at La Forchetta. Our waiter was attentive and helpful with describing the menu items. Our food arrived quickly, was nicely presented, had quality and tasty ingredients and was fairly priced. We would like to go back again to experience the evening ambiance.

My friend ordered the lamb and it wasn't what she expected. She was too nice to complain so they took her dish back to the kitchen. The owners noticed she didn't eat her food and they personally came to talk to us and asked if she wanted them to make her something else but she said no. They didn't hesitate to void the meal. All in all it was a good experience and good food.
