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!!

    Come here for my anniversary for the first time, had saw photos of the food and wanted to try it. To start the waiter was really helpful and did a great job. The atmosphere it was cool/modern and enjoyable. The food was subpar at best. We ordered the meatballs for starter and glass of wine, which both were very good, then we ordered the ametrciana and the bertu and when they arrived to the table we both kind of looked at each other like “this is it?” The amatriciana was nothing more than some noodles with red sauce on top and a dash of Parmasean on the corner of the plate and it seemed as if my food had sat under a heat lamp for several minutes too long because the top of the sauce/cheese and noodles was somewhat burnt and noodles very rubbery. The bertu was a very small helping of food and for $21 Was depressed at how small and unappetizing it looked. After receiving the bill and tipping, paying $100+ total.. I was not happy with my experience solely based on the quality of food. I have been to several Italian places in the area (scalinis, mezaluna even magionos) and have paid less money and had better quality. At the end of the day I don’t care about the price. I’ll pay $200 if the food is exceptional quality, but this was not that. I hope you guys read this and if some changes are made I would love to give it another shot because the resultant met and exceeded all Expectations EXCEPT for the quality of the food.

    Awful pasta - I grew up in Italy and had plenty of carbonara in Italy and around the world, and the carbonara I had here has to be one of the worst I’ve had. The pasta itself was very hard to chew, the pancetta was overcooked and way too thick, and the egg was so sticky everything was glued to the plate. Noise level makes conversations difficult - the freight trains passing by every 30 mins do not help. Would not recommend.

    I took some friends here when they came into town for the weekend and had some of the best Italian food I’ve had in a long time. I definitely recommend the carbonara and the upgraded Paloma. We sat outside on the patio and it was about 90 degrees at the time but they have fans all the way around the perimeter so it felt really nice.

    Our meal was outstanding! Service was a little slow, but they were very busy. My biggest complaint is the chairs. They were in red uncomfortable and I found myself having to stand multiple times. Otherwise, it was a great experience.

    Great place to meet with friends and have good Italian fare. They have shareable plates and we’ll done Italian classic pasta dishes. The cocktails were on the sweeter side. The ambiance is great if you like energetic environments.

    Celebrated my birthday here, and the food was really good. I feel like the portion size of the pastas was just enough. The ambiance was really nice. Nice vibes. Our server Hakeem was really nice and helpful. They do half off wine bottles on Tuesdays. Definitely will be retuning, so I can try all of their pastas.

    The ambience was great. Very nice large outdoor patio that is scenic. The drinks are well balanced and delicious. It was a Friday night when I visited, but the service was extremely slow. The appetizer (bread service) and later the side item (broccolini) that I ordered were barely warm at best. The pasta was pretty average in taste. It was good pasta but not exceptional. Overall, I would visit this restaurant again for drinks on the patio, but I would probably skip ordering food

    Arrived exactly on time for our 9PM reservation, were seated promptly, and were then ignored until 9:30PM, when the waitress first arrived with one drink, saying the other was picked up by a different waitress and lost. It wasn’t until close to 9:45 that we saw her again and were able to put in our orders. Our food came out around 10:15, but only one dish. They hadn’t put in the other at all. When the bill finally came, I paid quickly as we wanted to get out as soon as possible, so it wasn’t until we got home that we realized we were charged for an extra meal. Food is great, but not great enough to outweigh the inexcusable service we received. Really rough way to celebrate my wife’s birthday dinner, will never recommend or return to this restaurant.

    Service was awful. Like pulling teeth to get a waiter. Took 20 minutes for water service and 45 minutes to get a cocktail. Didn’t have the ingredients for one cocktail and didn’t come around again until 1 hour 5 mins into service. High tops uncomfortable and super loud outside. Mandatory service fee which easily explains why they don’t provide any.

    Waited 25 minutes for anyone to take our order, another 30 for our food to come, food runner asked us to grab plates out of his hands…crazy prices for 2 scoops of tuna and some overly-garlicky sautéed spinach with a wince-inducing cocktail. Their menu also has 90 disclaimers which set a combative tone from the moment you sit down.

    There was not much customer service. It took about 15 minutes to find a host to seat us for our reservation and the server was good but a bit inattentive, forgetting to put in drinks and not being available to ask questions. A server even reached behind my friend to serve a drink, wetting her back in the process and did not even notice. The food was great so I would give it another try but was not impressed with this visit.

    Not a good experience at all. Not only were we sat at a horrendous high top, but the drink portions were ridiculous, the pastas that were “time sensitive” came out cold and congealed, and our server had a terrible attitude. Will NOT be dining here again. Extremely disappointed.

    The tastes of each dish we tried were excellent. The grilled octopus was sooo good. I like calamari and gave never had non-chewy octopus, so what a delicious surprise, and it was browned perfectly around the edges. Cannot wait to get it another time. The cacio e pepe was amazing. Their homemade pastas ate just authentic deliciousness. Just like being in Italia I think. Altho, I did feel there was a lot of oil/butter involved in these recipes, the cannellini beans (yum), the yum cauliflower, all sauces had much oil. We did not get any secondi (entrees), but look forward to trying those next time! Delicious but mostly ice was our Hibiscus Margarita. I would order with light or no ice frankly. The waitress was great until we were finished and ready for check, she was out of sight for a bit and we were ready to leave, but it was the end of the night. I would highly recommend visitors and locals make sure you eat here all-in-all! Such a great menu and I think highest quality ingredients and super flavor.

    Great venue, expensive wine & cocktail list compared to food menu, pasta dishes expensive for the quality and quantity. Overall tasty but not the price does not match the experience. The other thing that really bothered me is that gratuity options start at 20% and are calculated with taxes included.

    Food and service were delicious. Fried artichoke not blossom were delicious. Table size was tiny but doable. Only complaint was the music. It was a loop of techno dance music. Maybe the tune is supposed to make you eat faster or drink more but it was painfully excruciating. Too bad that I remember the odd choice of music over the food.
