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.

    We discovered Forza Storico earlier this week by a friend’s referral. My son and I enjoyed it SO much, I’m taking other family/friends back this weekend. The best quality of our dining experience was our server, Carlos. He provided the BEST service I’ve ever experienced at any restaurant in my past, including all fine dining experiences. If you go (which I HIGHLY recommend!), ask for Carlos to serve you and ask/take his advice on ANY menu choices!!! The food was the best authentic Italian I’ve had since actually being in Italy years ago. Cost was a good value. And it was a very unique and enjoyable environment. Loved the decor! It will DEFINITELY be a go-to restaurant for us!

    Fabulous food and friendly service! Had the radicchio salad, which is super simple but amazingly seasoned, along with the mushrooms, which I will dream about until the next time I get to order then, to start and then the cacio e pepe and branzino which were both cooked to perfection. And the serving staff was kind and attentive. Will definitely be going back !

    This was our first time here and we decided on this restaurant for my birthday. The food was okay. Prices were too high. They don’t offer bread (besides a small basket you have to pay for with no refills) and they don’t offer a birthday dessert. The salad we ordered was okay but a bit underwhelming (lacked sufficient toppings and not much greens). I’ve been to a lot of great Italian restaurants in and outside of Atlanta but don’t think I’ll go out of my way to come back here. My friend that was in from Chicago agrees. The waitress was nice and helpful. Another gripe we have is that the hostess stand was outside in the bitter cold. The outdoor heaters really weren’t sufficient and it’s a shame to make people wait outside in the cold to check in. They should have re routed the hostess stand to the inside entrance.

    Food was amazing, service was great. Tables are entirely too small for where they seat 6 people. We kept constantly getting bumped into by servers trying to get around us as well as other patrons. Our waitress was very kind and moved our table over a few inches for us but it was still very cramped. Would definitely go back but maybe with a smaller group.

    The food was very good! I have been multiple times and normally the service is also very good and hands on. We only saw our waiter 3x and they ran out of wine glasses so we did not get our wine until after appetizers and still were short two glasses. Again, love the restaurant and food was just disappointing with the lack of service and shortage of wine glasses.

    What a fun restaurant and awesome vibe! The food was so good..especially the fried artichokes and the arbiatta pasta. The homeade pasta was beyond amazing. Our server was friendly and attentive. The only negative I can say is that they didn't have Titos Vodka!

    I have dined here many times and the service is never great unfortunately. The food is what keeps me coming back though it’s pricey. Now you have to pay a fee to check out on their mobile site Sunday. It may have been on the menu but would have been nice to have a heads up from the server.

    Forza Storico's meatballs and focaccia were outstanding, and the recommended Paloma cocktail added a delightful touch. Despite a slow start with no initial attention to our table, the attentive and apologetic service that followed redeemed the experience. Despite the initial hiccup, Forza Storico is worth a try for its exceptional dishes and cocktails.

    This is my 4th time to eat here and it has been consistently very good! We are there on NYE and had to sit outside and about froze to death. Even with the heaters going we both had to wear winter coats and gloves. Service was great and food was very good but got cold as quickly as it came out. For a nearly $200 meal for 2 people with no appetizers or desserts I was hoping for better.
