Went to dinner for our anniversary and had a really great time! They were clearly very busy but our waiter still took the time to check on us.

The only con i can give them is that I ordered a drink and it took so long to come that i had finished my meal but when i told the waiter i no longer needed it, he gave it to me anyway and took it off the bill, so i guess not much of a con!

The food was wonderful but this is the WORST service I have ever experienced dining out. It took 45 minutes for us to get our first round of drinks. We assumed it was a fluke but with each subsequent drink order it took at least 30 minutes to receive our drinks. The waiter checked on us 3 times over the course of the 4 hours it took for us to have 2 drinks, appetizer and dinner. Will not be returning until they have retrained their serving staff. Unless you have at least 4 hours for a dinner I would not suggest eating here.

Looked to be a hugely busy night, our server seemed a little overwhelmed. Our table was a strange one near a staircase by the host stand with a bright light bearing down on us. We could’ve tried to sit somewhere else like we saw a few other couples do with the table next to us, but didn’t, so i guess that’s our bad. 1st round of drinks took a while. We placed our food order all at once (2 apps, 2 pasta, broccolini) to make it easier for our server, but it ended up coming out all at one time, which was a bit frustrating. Caprese needed salt or balsamic or something, and fried calamari+shrimp needed salt and a sauce or something more flavorful than just a lemon wedge. They did mention they try to be very authentic, so maybe that’s me being ignorant. The pastas (Bolognese and papalina) were really really good though! We had planned to get a bottle of wine to enjoy them, but ended up just eating the apps and broccolini and taking the pastas home to eat there. Maybe we will come back on a different night. I think sitting at a more central table area on an off-peak night might be a nice experience.

I was expecting to have a fabulous experience but it was a very non - special experience. The waiter never asked us what we were there for (birthday) and it was the fastest meal I have ever had in my life. Start to finish with drinks, appetizers and dinner was over in less than an hour. I understand Covid and the need to move people through quick. They also messed up our appetizer order and an entree order. The food itself was tasty which is a llus

I’ve been to the restaurant before. Unfortunately, this time we were really disappointed in the service. We had two servers and they were really throwing out some attitude. It took away from the rest of the experience. Food and drinks were amazing!
Different chairs might be a better choice for the outdoor high top tables in the heat.

What a treat to be out and enjoying great fellowship with family! I love the Storico restaurants. Just a few observations that might make your experience better. When sitting outside, ask to be close to the fans. Otherwise it was HOT!. Would be awesome if more fans were added. Charcuterie plate was very average with only 5 slices of toast for 4 people. I would not order again. Bolognese and shrimp pasta dishes were amazing. Wine was a delicious Chianti for $80. Drinks were $$$. Our bill for 4 was $350 with no salads so this is a splurge!

During the days of Covid, Forza Storico has been able to keep an ambiance and vibrancy while remaining safe and open that unfortunately other restaurants can not because of their access to a wonderful courtyard! Great food and exceptional wait staff keep the experience as close to post Covid as possible.

We got several different appetizers (the fried artichokes were especially good!), pasta dishes, and drinks and were not disappointed. The salmon was delicious as was the spinach and brown butter ravioli. Our favorite drinks were the Frozen and the Canoe Club. The patio was lovely and the servers were friendly, attentive, and patient.

PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT! Me and my bf have never experienced authentic Italian food and this restaurant was AMAZINGGGG!!!! They are definitely practicing Covid safety precautions and are only taking diners outside. The ambiance and the food was just right! Made a PERFECT date night!

The manager was the sweetest and made us feel greatly special due to our special occasion!

We will definitely be back! 5, 10, 100 stars!!!!

Food and cocktails are top-notch. They are doing a good job dealing with the COVID-19 restrictions and have clear protocols in place. My only suggestion to management is that they spray for insects (gnats and ants) in the small outside area by the railroad tracks. We were seated out there and our legs and feet were crawling with ants. We asked if the restaurant had insect repellant and unfortunately they did not. Our server suggested we spray the complimentary hand sanitizer spray they had on the table on our feet and legs which seemed to help until it dried. We will definitely be back, but don't ever want to be seated next to the train tracks again unless they take care of the insect problem.

The patio is great for COVID-era dining, especially since it's mostly covered for when those evening storms roll in. There is a large selection of homemade pasta and the staff are knowledgeable and happy to offer suggestions. The portions are a decent size and everything we ordered was very tasty.

Perfect meal, perfect cocktails! Forza perfects both their take on Roman centric dishes, and their fun, innovative cocktails, along with classic cocktails like a spritz and espresso martini. Choosing an appetizer was challenge because they all looked so good, but my bf was decisive and chose the squash blossoms. That dish wouldnt haven been my absolute first pick, but after tasting it itll be my first (and maybe second because its worth getting more than one of this dish) every time. I had the mista salad and bolognese for my mains. I am now obsessed with the mista salad and whatever magical salad dressing they have- seriously one of the best salads ever. The bolognese was exactly as it should be and there was not a leftover to be had. For the amount of food and drink we got I thought it was very reasonable for a special date night. Definitely will be returning for happy hour soon.

Overall the experience at Forza was very good, but not great. We really enjoyed the food, the vibe at Westside Provisions is always good, so you can't go wrong w/ the that but the uniqueness of the dishes and the portion sizes didn't seem to match the cost.

The staff was well informed, attentive, did not give us much attention but still was very professional.

I think a very good Italian style restaurant w/very typical dishes from Rome a good place for a night out w/ friends.
