We had a good dinner there. The appetizer was good with the fluffy parma bread and ham + parmezzano regano but that you can find anywhere in Parma. My wife had seafood not much sea-bass in it. I had some veal. Nothing special but good.

We were exceptionally lucky to get the only table available which was on the small terrace outside. Whilst it was a little cold outside they have very good heaters and blankets. We went for the cheese souffle to start and OMG it was simply amazing!!...More

Beautiful, welcoming and tasty. The service was good, and the food was exceptional. It is more pricey than the average, but it is a more sophisticated spot.

Excellent work with the pasta, polenta and the truffles, carpaccio di polipo and pasta with butter and sage, to die for. Excellent service, great deco and atmosphere.

Decently prepared dishes but their taste doesn't fully deserve the price. Fancy design though. You might have a bit of a problem if you don't speak Italian and they are busy as not all the personnel speaks EnglishMore

Description
La Forchetta" restaurant is situated in the heart of the old town centre of Parma, in one of the most beautiful and oldest buildings in the city, just a few steps from the Duomo and the Battistero. It is family-run and offers the finest of Parmesan cuisine as well as fish dishes, accompanied by the best wines. Tortelli stuffed with spinach and pumpkin, duchessa di Parma, braised veal cheeks, fish crudité, scallops in a salt and pepper crust, lobster tagliolini, tuna steaks and Catalan salad, are just a sample of the variety of our menu. Our bread and pasta are all home-made in the old-fashioned way and we are particularly careful in our choice of ingredients. It is also possible to eat outside. A visit to La Forchetta means enjoying a moment of pleasure, a delight to the taste buds, in the city of taste and fine cuisine!
