Inattentive server. She talked to all her other tables but us. Waited 10 minutes after our food arrived to get silverware and 20 more minutes to get napkins. Never offered a second round or asked if food was okay. We had to ask other staff members to get us things

Drinks, appetizer, service were all fantastic . Server advised us that it would take longer than normal for entrees due to limited staffing , which was great , so that didn’t bother us . But when the entrees finally came , my wife’s pasta dish was cold . It had been sitting for probably quite awhile , possibly waiting for mine to be done . They were both pasta dishes . And overall , entrees were just average to me in taste . To charge $24-$28 for basic pasta dishes , it better have a “wow” factor to it , and we didn’t get that .

But If you do come here, best to go on a Tuesday , when the bottles of wine are half off . They have a great selection, and the cocktails were fantastic . I would def come here again for drinks/apps, but can’t guarantee I would come for dinner again

There were 8 of us. They brought out 6 meals and then forgot about us and the fact that they hadnt brought everyones entree out. Twice we had to go remind server that there were still outstanding entrees so the rest of us could eat. Patio was great! Food was good. Not authentic Italian but close enough. Good value.

Cindy is the best server at the restaurant
Attentive and just knows how to take care of the table.
It was crazy busy so I asked her to help us and she she did. We got or drink
Ordered and food and didn’t have to wait so long like the other tables around us

The outdoor space is absolutely lovely. The food was decent but not excellent. Big issue was the service: server was largely absent, made a mistake with the drink order and claimed I ordered a different cocktail. When a runner brought it to me he said the name of the incorrect cocktail, I clarified and then he changed what he said to the cocktail I actually wanted, ie delivered a margarita I never wanted. The seating was also not very comfortable. Again biggest plus is the outdoor patio space and seating. As others have mentioned the valet and parking fill up fast - take uber if you can.

Fun setting but very, very loud and the speaker music was kind of weird and added to the loudness. Also, the wooden slat chairs are so uncomfortable. Service and food were good, but was ready to get out of there as soon as we were done eating.

Incredibly slow service. It took over 30 minutes for the waiter to ask us for our drink orders once we were seated. Food ordering wasn't any faster. Ambiance is nice, which is good because you'll spend a lot of time waiting!

We sat inside at the bar for a casual dinner. Personable service with great recommendations! Their pastas are all incredible—authentic flavors, made to perfection! Great spot for drinks, date night or a casual night out.

The food was average and the service was slow. We sat around for a while once seated and eventually had to flag someone down to even get water on the table. The drinks were good and we were able to request our own drinks if not on the menu. The food was average though - most of the dishes were bland and some were cold. The atmosphere outside in the patio area is nice.

Overall pretty good. Hostess was not welcoming and be aware that even though we made an OT “reservation” for the bar area, we were informed it was still first come first serve? After we did find a seat the food, drinks, and bar staff were all exceptional.

1st-time patron at Forza Storico, you are instructed to scan the menu into your phone, which was great if it worked. The wrong menu appeared, I reviewed the menu and found a dish I really wanted. I was informed by my waiter that I was viewing the wrong menu. I ended up with fettuccine and Shirmp, pasta was great, very fresh and light, the sauce was not good, and didn't add a lot of flavor to the Fettuccini. I tried to doctor up the taste by requesting pesto sauce from the kitchen, but the taste was still not there. Overall experience was good, service was great If I return, I'll be sure to try something else.

Very “energetic” (a pleasant euphemism), especially bar scene. If you’re under 30 you’ll love it. Over 40, not so much.

Overpriced food with a tiny quantity. Food was undercooked. Got sick after eating it.. The music is so loud that you practically have to yell to talk with someone. Have had much better Italian food at much cheaper price with great quantity that will actually fill you up! Would not recommend it and won't be visiting again.

We come here about once a week. This time it was a strange experience from the beginning. We had a reservation but preferred outdoor seating. I called to ask for outdoor seating about 4 hours before our reservation time, understanding it was likely limited, and was told “sorry it’s not available” and was hung up on.
Then we arrived and sat. It took 25 min for a server to come over to our table and take our order.
Apps arrived before the bar drinks.
Portions of EVERYTHING were very small. Way smaller than usual. Again, we come here weekly. All in all, not the best experience this time around.

There's a great vibe at Forza Storico, and a terrific outside dining space. Food is good, not great, but good enough. We had one beef when we were there last night. A server brought a little carafe to pour a decent serving of white wine for my husband, but when my daughter ordered a rose, it came in a glass from the bar and there was honestly about an inch and a half in the glass, as if the bartendar had just emptied the bottle and didn't want to open another one. The server (a different one) sort of shrugged his shoulders when we remarked on the scant size. We should have sent it back as it sort of stuck in our craws for the rest of the meal, as little things can do some time.
But it is, for the most part, a fun, cheery place.
