    The app (meats and cheese) 12-13/pp large amount serves 2 was flavourful... I had the rack of lamb... it was ok.... wish it was seasoned more or have a mint chutney instead of what they provided...the smashed potato was sub par and the green beans were green beans... what else can I say about it... ambience was nice (some loud patrons sitting around... kinda made it deafening). Waiter was nice and friendly and the staff wished everyone well when we were leaving... so, overall I would say 4/5.... my meal was nothing to brag about...however, the others order the linguini seafood and the pasta (noci) and they enjoyed it.... I’d try it again but a different meal...

    I find it very difficult to get good vegetarian fare. I’ve been to top restaurants that can’t seem to get it right. The mushroom ravioli here was spectacular and I didn’t pay an arm and a leg for it!

    One of our favorite places to eat in Toronto. We have been several times. The food is fantastic! Mushroom risotto is my favorite dish there. The grilled calamari is so good.. the grill char tastes like a summer bbq even in the middle of winter. The service is very attentive and the waiters are so personable and nice to speak with. Will absolutely go again .. and even again and highly recommend La Forchetta!

    Could have been a better assortment of appetizers. Mains were great. Dessert menu lacking a bit as well.

    Very good service. Food was incredible and wine pairing was perfect. Was fairly quiet for a Friday night, which was nice. Dessert was phenomenal as well

    (It was boxing day and the place was almost empty.) I had the specials: the mushroom soup and the pickerel. The mushroom soup was quite disappointing: it was watery and oily - you could really see and taste the oil that they had added. The pickerel was quite good, and was cooked just right; it was all cooked with lots of added fat/oil; yes, that is common and it certainly makes the dish rich but it didn't need it and it seems like a bit of a crutch to me. The others were mostly positive about their meals, and when one of the party requested cheese on their seafood linguine (which was very good apparently) the waiter called them on it - noting that this was not right. We overruled the waiter but appreciated that he didn't hold back! However, we were quite struck by how much they lean towards sweet dishes. Looking thru the meat and fish dishes I found that most of the dishes - not just the pork & duck as in most restaurants - were sweet, eg. the lamb dish is encrusted with "Honey, raw sugar...". On the whole, we enjoyed our food but alas would not go back because so many of the meat & fish dishes were sweet we were left with little to choose from.

    Would recommend the Gnocchi and Rosemary Bread for sure. The fish dish I ordered the Calamari was a touch overcooked. Server from Venezuela was extremely personable, knowledgeable and friendly.
