After running all over Rome for 5 days, we wanted something close to where we were staying, so naturally we turned to TripAdvisor. In a nutshell, we're glad we did! This is definitely off the beaten track, and tourists here would have come on purpose....More

A 90 minute research on trip advisor found this restaurant. I am cynical of reviews from American tourists who write "Our best meal in Italy" I also like to check what the locals are saying and the detail of any negative comment. The Osteria is...More

We love Italy. We get that the service can seem brusque, unattentive, lethargic. We go with the flow. This past Tuesday or Wednesday we arrived at Forchetta at 7:30pm, looking forward to a wonderful meal as described by fellow reviewers. We know it's early, but...More

When you see Prati on the map, you might think it is a long trip from the center of Rome. Not true! Using tram or Metro, you can be at this gem of an osteria quite quickly. Overshadowed by brightly-lighted places on this tiny street,...More

Both tuna steak with sesame and spigalo (we think it's seabass) were excellent, pasta and meat were quite good. Good choice of wines and excellent helpful service. Better reserve the table beforehand

The food is absolutely delicious and well presented. Many seafood and vegetarian options. And don't skip dessert-just trust me on that. While this restaurant may be a bit off the beaten path from tourist spots, I think that is a huge benefit! It's worth the...More

Marco, a true Roman guy, manage this little and cozy restaurant in Rome. While there read the menu and put it away ....he will surprise you with many other dishes of the day. Everything is fresh and prepared at the moment. Dessert are a plus!!!

Centrale nel cuore del quartiere Prati, a due passi da Piazza Strozzi e a dieci minuti a piedi dalla Metro Lepanto, l'Osteria della Forchetta, inaugurata nel 2008. Accogliente ristorante al suo interno una quarantina di posti, che durante la bella stagione raddoppiano con i tavolini all'aperto. Aperto a pranzo e a cena vizia affezionati clienti e turisti con la sua cucina espressa, portando in tavola piatti golosi della tipica cucina mediterranea. Fatti pochi gradini, ci si immerge in un ambiente familiare, raccolto e discreto. La qualita del personale e la cura delle materie prime, ben si sposano con le virtu dello chef, autore di fortunate rivisitazioni creative che accompagnate al pane, alla pasta e ai dolci fatti in casa stuzzica anche i dietisti piu ligi.
A pranzo oltre la carta c'e anche una formula piu semplice ed economica, con due piatti a scelta, a soli 12 euro.
La sera, appena seduti, il benvenuto e un fresco aperitivo con il pane ancora caldo e subito gli antipasti come la tartare di tonno, il fritto di moscardini, il crudo di carciofi con julienne di calamari saltati in padella o il carpaccio gamberi rossi di Sicilia e mango o anche lo sformatino di verdure con vellutata di parmigiano.
Tra i primi, meritano attenzione i gnocchetti acqua e farina con pesto di pistacchi e gamberi, la gricia di tonno, i tagliolini con fiori di zucca, gamberi e tartufo nero di Norcia, gli strangozzi cacio e pepe con carciofi croccanti o la carbonara tartufata.
Pesce e carne anche nei secondi. Per concludere in dolcezza, il creme caramel all'arancia, il fagottino di pasta fillo con pere cioccolato e cannella o il semifreddo al pistacchio e cointreau.
Sono disponibili piatti per celiaci.
