Forchetta was great. I was there on a dinner date and we really enjoyed our visit. The drinks, the food and the staff were great. We will absolutely be back.
Angelo was an amazing server. He made our experience wonderful. The meals were beautiful to look at and delicious to eat.
The food was great portions large. The chef came out to make sure everything was good.
Good service - OK food. Good overall. Restaurant of a hotel so nothing special, but nice enough.
One of, if not the best restaurant experience I’ve ever had. Angelo was extremely friendly and knowledgeable with food and wine pairings and the hospitality truly is unmatched by any other experience I’ve had. Chef Luca even came out to speak to my wife and I briefly and that was truly exceptional. I would recommend this place to anyone. Amazing food, great atmosphere, and extremely reasonably priced.
Chef Luka was incredible! Definitely recommend going!
Food was bland. Salad came out with no dressing. Overpriced for what you get. Not many selections on the menu.
Mother’s Day Brunch. Good good but limited menu
My daughter tried taking me here for Mother’s Day. When we arrived, we noticed that it was a restaurant that was a part of the Holiday Inn downtown. Once seated and given the menu, we learned it was NOT the menu that was advertised on their website. We also noticed that you would be charged a “19%” gratuity on your bill. Having seen all of this, we decided to leave only to learned we would have to pay $5 to get out of the parking garage. This will not happen EVER AGAIN with this restaurant and me!!!!
The overall experience was excellent just the food was not great from what I had !
Phenomenal eggplant parm and the braised lamb shank was awesome. Doing the best they can considering the industry wide staffing shortage. Low noise level made for easy conversation and place looks fabulous inside. Will be back.
Geneva did a good job, considering it was only her 2nd day.
We thought it odd that we had to ask for our $25 grand re-opening coupon.
Nothing special for birthday or Mother's Day, except a pleasant evening and good food.
I’m so happy that forchetta was able to open its doors again! Forchetta is our favorite uptown restaurant!
Great to he back dinning in the city. Angelino was a great waiter
My husband and I took our Sister and Brother in Law out for dinner Saturday evening - our meals were so delicious! The service was outstanding and we will be visiting the restaurant again!
I didn’t realize this was a Holiday Inn restaurant, but very pleasantly surprised. The ambiance isn’t great - it’s a Holiday Inn - but the food and service were really good.
We had first-night-waitress Geneva, who was personable, welcoming and warm. The food truly was very good - the pork chop and lasagna were well made and flavourful. The calamari was a light on the sauce and perfectly cooked. Thankfully avoiding the “rubbery” texture or fishiness - or the smothering of sauce used to hide older product.
Value for the money.
Was out up to normal quality that we have been accustomed to. Maybe first night back. Will give another chance
Great food, excellent service and great atmosphere. I got in early at 5 p.m. and got out before the restaurant filled up around 6 p.m.... don't forget to save room for a cannoli! Thank you so much, Chef Luca!
One of the best Italian meals we have had in a long time. Chef was very personal and attentive. We will be back!
Excellent service all around. We were happy to support this local small business!
This is a nice, “clean cut” business lunch/dinner restaurant. The space was tidy and well kept. Food was good upscale Italian cuisine with an American twist, rather than traditional Italian. Due to a new menu coming out in the next couple of days they were out of about a third of the items on the current menu, understandably so. Service was prompt. Prices were reasonable for downtown Charlotte. The experience was good overall. We would recommend this place.
Excellent. Thank you
The purses with lobster and mascarpone are to die for! The lobster bisque was rich and flavorful and the lasagna was delicious! Our server was friendly and attentive despite the pre-concert rush of diners.
Food was good but our waiter was not very attentive. In his defense he was very busy but never refilled water, never offered a second drink or other beverage. My husband went to the restroom and the waiter just slap the bill down in front of me never offering desert or asking if we needed anything else. We paid and he walked away without a thank you, goodnight, etc.
Dined there on Feb 15th when a special Valentines Day menu was offered. The food was amazing!! The cost was reasonable and well worth it. Presentation of each course was beautiful, the wait staff was extremely attentive. We had not had a dining experience like that in quite some time. Executive Chef Luca Annunziata personally tended to all the diners. His was a welcome presence throughout the evening, not hidden away in the kitchen. He is a delight. Definitely will return to this delightful restaurant.
Will be back!
Outstanding meal. Luis, or server, was very attentive and highly knowledgeable about the menu. We will ask for him again belt name the next time we dine here.
I can’t say enough about the food. You think that eating dinner at a Holiday Inn is going to be like eating at a chain, well, don’t think they at all. This is one of two places in Charlotte where the Italian dishes are like what I’ve eaten in Campania. Simply delicious.
While they had a set menu and the food overall was pretty good it was pricey for what we got.... the red velvet cake was too dried out to eat. It was like it had been cut and sat out for a few hours. It wasn’t a bad experience overall but we won’t be going back.
The food was excellent!!!
I had been a little hesitant to try this restaurant due to the location in a hotel. But, it did not disappoint. From the Lynchburg lemonade to the burrata salad to the eggplant pasta (without sausage), it was really excellent. The service was impeccable. I'm looking forward to returning.
Everything was excellent from the service to the food and atmosphere. Hope to be able to visit again. Would and have recommended to friends and family.
I've dined here on more than several occasions and each and every time, the food and experience is wonderful! Chef Luca not only makes fantastic food, he also comes out to greet his guests and ensure they're have a good dining experience! Make sure to check out their lunch specials!
The food was creative and exceptional. Have small portions of the pasta dishes available allowed us to sample so many items on the menu. It was delightful.
Food was very tasty and attractively presented. The room was upscale yet casual.
We had play tickets at Spirit Square and it was less than 1 block away. A great evening Uptown Charlotte.
I eat here Periodically for lunch and everything I've ever had has always been very good. They make a simple bar burger that is absolutely delicious. Anyone I've brought with me has always enjoyed this restaurant.
Awesome food and delicious pastas!! Great Mule selection!
We visited forchetta for Restaurant Week and had a great experience. The food was excellent and nicely portioned for restaurant week. Our server gave us personal feedback on the selections and took good care of us. We really enjoyed the entire experience!
Service was good. Sweet waitress Marina. Buttrrnut soup good. Short rib entree fatty couldnt eat half of it. Raspberry creme brulee fabulous!
We had the absolute best server Angelo taking care of us over the course of our dinner. He was very knowledgeable about wines and also the menu options and made us feel very taken care of. My husband ordered the ribeye steak which was one of the best steaks we have ever eaten. Our appetizers were outstanding. I had the muscles and he had the taste of Charlotte award winner. Both are scrumptious. My husband had the tiramisu for dessert and it was also outstanding. I had the chicken dinner which seemed to be somewhat uninspired however as we shared our dishes the steak made up for my dish 10 times over. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
Chef Luca brings knowledge from his Italian roots and we are lucky enough to enjoy his delicious food here in Charlotte. ‘forchetta’ is our go-to when we are eating uptown. You will not be disappointed if you dine there!
