Forza Storico is a traditional Italian restaurant focused on typical Roman dishes such as Carbonara, Amatriciana, Cacio e Pepe and may more. Our Italian wine list is comprised of 80 labels, 30 of which by the glass and all chilled to perfection. Half of the restaurant is a central bar with additional high top seating available first come first served. Our extensive beverage program includes 15 cocktails and over 30 Italian beers. Just like our sister restaurant Storico Fresco in Buckhead, we believe in great food, simple service, and giving our patrons a fun experience...When in Rome!!

    Appetizers and entrees were great Service was a bit unattentive, took a while to respond to direct requests (can I get a menu? - 10-15 minutes…) Tiramisu was very disappointing

    Went here with some coworkers after work. It was a fabulous place to for a decent Italian dinner. The food portions are perfect. I had the vodka penne and it was sooooooo yummy. I highly recommend that pasta.

    Appetizers weren’t great- the calamari would have been a 2/5 for me if it weren’t for the fish and shrimp they added. The actual calamari (squid)was rubbery and there was no sauce. $6 for 4 small slices of flat focaccia. The pasta was good and fresh but there is certainly better flavor elsewhere for the price. Ended up spending over $100 on two people for mid appetizers and two small pasta dishes.

    Had a wonderful and delicious anniversary celebration here last night! Leo was a great waiter who had the best wine recommendations and was attentive but not intrusive. The pasta is always amazing but I tried the branzino and it was perfectly roasted and flavorful. One of our go-to spots to celebrate or a ‘regular’ date night!

    Food and service were both very good. We made a reservation, and were sat immediately upon arrival. Everything was surprisingly quick. Only took about 15 minutes for entrees to come out. Plate sizes were a bit smaller than I wished, but food was delicious. The outdoor seating area is beautiful in the evening. Highly recommend

    It was disappointing that the two couples could not order/pay for their meals separately. Food came out quickly. The focaccia was overpriced and skimpy. While the mail meal was delicious and the patio dining was nice, there are other Italian restaurants in Atlanta that are better.

    This is one of our favorite spots in Atlanta but they decided to take the Pasta carbonara off the menu and we went last night to find that out. SUPER disappointing because that is by far their best dish. Also an authentic Roman place without that dish, is not an authentic Roman place. Really disappointing. We decided to go to a different restaurant

    All the food was delicious, and the atmosphere was lively and very enjoyable. Sat outside and would recommend! Service getting our food to the table was good, but our server rarely checked on us, and she forgot my order when putting our table’s order in. My entree came after everyone else finished eating. But, overall the excellent food and atmosphere made it a lovely evening.

    Every table only has bar stools for you to sit on that are wooden with no back. I ordered the sea bass that was overcooked had skin on both sides of it I had to do all of the work just to get to it. The house Chianti was like water. Service was good quality for the area probably the bottom of the list.

    The food was amazing and the service and ambiance was great. The chairs and seating…most uncomfortable thing I have experienced in a restaurant. I had to switch with my husband twice. The hard wood booth was much worse than the tall hard stool.

    Average Italian food at best. Good servers and service however. It's just that the price point is too high for the food. I think it was about the same quality as Olive Garden - maybe. I suspect the location drove the price as the overhead is probably crazy. But still... it should have been a lot better.

    We had an amazing night at Forza Storico as always! Hiba was our server and she was great! We got the Linguine al Pesto e Gamberi and the Amatriciana and both were 10/10. Dinner on the patio on a Friday night is the best way to unwind!
