La Forchetta has never let us down in the 15 years that we have been dining there. They have an excellent wine list, attentive staff and delicious cuisine. This is a gem of a restaurant!

There was an event winding down as we were coming in, and the service reflected it. Even though I booked the table in the app and specified it was our anniversary, there was no special table set for us, not was the anniversary acknowledged. In the other hand, the food was great.

We rent here as it is close by our favourite Airbnb when we stay in Toronto and we didn't feel like driving again to another restaurant further out.
I was immediately put off when I was told on their prefix menu I can only have two courses because I booked on open table Weird?! I've never heard anything like that before. So people that didn't plan ahead that walked in off the street were able to enjoy the prefix with three courses .
There was a hair in my soup so I asked for them to put it into a new bowl. No mention of this and no compensation. I didn't make a big deal of it .
The food was fine for what it was. The Decour is a little bit dated . This isn't a trendy restaurant but more of an old-school Italian restaurant that may have had its heyday in the 80s. We had some trendier meals at Figo and Oretta for the same price. Dinner for four of us with a bottle of wine and desserts came to $400 . I would probably go back in a pinch but it's just not memorable. The food was good.

Appetizers are overpriced and not ideal for sharing.
Main courses and desserts were very good.
Waiter seemed overwhelmed our party of 9 and made the ordering experience slightly awkward.
Request for separate bills was not accommodated.
Good for couples, but not groups larger than 4.

It was our first time and we were not disappointed. Service, food, and atmosphere all met or exceeded our expectations. We look forward to dining again.

Salads were overdressed. So many fruit flies flying around the restaurant. One landed in my wine. Told the wait who just took my glass away and gave me a fresh glass. No replacement for the wine I couldn't drink. Seafood main course. The tiger shrimp were not tiger shrimp, the mussels were tiny, most of the dish was over cooked. We will not be returning!!
