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.

Our waiter made a lot of mistakes. Delivered wine with fruit flies in it. Then forgot my salad order. The veal wasn't very tender. Overall a little disappointing.

Once again, this wonderful restaurant exceeded our expectations with not only the usual delicious dishes but some special additions that were both truly imaginative and delightful. We find it so nice and relaxing at lunch time, where we can take extra time to enjoy several courses at our leisure and also enjoy a friendly chat with the owners. Definitely looking forward to returning again soon from Vancouver Island.

Absolutely amazing authentic Italian food, with some very unique dishes and truly friendly management. Particularly outstanding on this visit was the "Insalata di Mare" (such beautifully fresh seafood) and the "Paccheri al Pistacchio" (one of the best pasta dishes I have ever had). If you are looking for a restaurant in this part of the world that can offer you a meal favourably comparable to some of the best in Italy, then this is definitely the place to go. Thank you so much, Manrico and Marcella, for such a beautiful meal and your warm hospitality.

A cute and convenient little place. Our server was a young man who was so nice and accommodating. We ordered a drink that the restaurant was not currently serving, but he said he will see what he can do. He later brought us out drinks and told us to try, and if we didn't like it, he will happily replace it with something else. Our food was good but the great service what made the day special! This was our first time here but we will for sure be back!

La Forchette has set patios front and back. Great food and service. We were happy to see they are adapting to the unfortunate Covid restrictions, and doing a super job of it. One of neighbourhood favourites.

Overall was good but putting 1 star here because I didn't get my dinning point and restaurant put me a no show which this is a very turn down. Restaurant needs to be more careful on this otherwise no one would depends on Open Table for reservation and less people knowing the existing of your restaurant!

Great food, amazing service, and good value. A fun night out after many, many months of staying home during the pandemic. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food was fantastic - best gnocchi ever! Gorgeous, generous charcouterie platter. Couldn't have enjoyed it more. We'll be back!

We were very impressed. The restaurant is bright and cheerful. The food was outstanding --- veal was superb and the ravioli very good. The wine list was adequate but overpriced. The staff was not only friendly but very efficient. Overall, a great night.

The Pasta dish and the grilled octopus (local) was outstanding!
Service was one of the best I’ve had , Giovanni was everything you want as a waiter! It’s to bad I can only choose one option but I’d definitely go back for different reasons. Thanks can’t wait to be back!

We have been to La Forchetta three times. It is clean, with a new look and feel, and with unobtrusive virus-protection measures. Service was excellent. The quality of the food, however, depends on what you order. The pasta was very, very good; but the sea food seemed to be over-cooked.
