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.

The menu selection is just right- neither overwhelming or underwhelming. Serves fresh and generous ingredients. Very clean.

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.

I think they’re trying hard, but just don’t have the last small details together.

The octopus was served cold, the Creme Catalonia was wet, the server used the term ‘dude’ with a customer etc etc.

Our main pasta dish was good, and I think it’s not a bad place. My expectations were high from the reviews and I think I was a little let down.

No reason not to go,

Very impressed. First time here, clear covid measures were taken place to ensure everyone’s safety. Waiters were super professional. Chef came out to say hi to every table which went a long way with us. Good food, my one and only complaint was the menu was modified for V-Day and the option I picked before hand wasn’t available, however my food was still great. Have already recommended to coworkers.
