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.

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.

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.

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!

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”.

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.

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!

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
