Ristorante Forchetta, is a family-owned and operated Fine Italian Dining restaurant located in Key Biscayne. The name of the restaurant Forchetta is inspired by the Italian word for ‘’fork’’, which is the perfect gateway to enjoy a memorable culinary journey to Italy at our restaurant.

The menu is characterized by a wide range of freshly prepared authentic Italian dishes, including excellent pasta dishes, Mediterranean seafood, original Italian meat entrées, mouthwatering desserts, and not to forget, the carefully selected wine list. All fresh ingredients are either directly imported from Italy or come from local vendors.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is modern and chic, while also giving a warm and comfortable feel. The turquoise and golden elements inside the restaurant remind of the seaside of Italy.

    Everything was up to my expectations. I was surprised that on a Sunday evening that there were not more people eating at the place. I think they have to advertise more so people know they are there.

    Once again, a lovely dinner! The commitment of this family owned restaurant to the highest quality and preparation of dishes. The truffled spaghetti had real truffles, not truffle oil. It is well worth the price whether for a family dinner or a Wednesday night meal.

    Food and service was very good but not exceptional or fine Italian dining. There was no ambiance. The restaurant is a storefront. The patio outside dining is just the second floor of the strip mall overlooking the parking lot. Only three choices for wine by the glass ranging from 14-16 dollars. Cheapest bottle wine was $60. Automatically added 20% tip when bill came so be sure not to overtip. Much better restaurants on Key Biscayne and the mainland. Not really worth the drive.

    Food was decent…. the service was horrible. They two young ladies who we’re waiting on us were condescending, slow and seemed bothered we were there. We we’re staying nearby at the Ritz, and they told us the restaurant next to them was far better….. we should have listened. I would not recommend this place at all.

    This was a superb Italian dining experience. The food was outstanding and the service excellent. We shared a Ceasar Salad, my spouse had the Lobster Ravioli and I had the Grilled Lamb Chops. Really. really good Lobster Ravioli with good amount of actual lobster meat, and the grilled lamb chops were cooked perfectly and very tasty. We sat a nice quiet table outside on the patio. Our servers were excellent. Timed everything correctly, were attentive when needed, and at the end, engaged in a very nice conversation. Really close to the Ritz hotel, but a little hard to spot in the strip mall like environment with a couple of other restaurants. Sign on window a little hard to spot but well worth looking for. Easily one of the best dining experiences in Key Biscayne and reasonably priced!

    This was our second time. My Italian mother-in-law said it was her best meal in Miami, so we've been 2x during her visit. The owners are from Sardegna and are lovely people. Here are our recommendations so far -- Lamb, Veal Tonato, Spaghetti alle Vongole, Risotto, Branzino was extremely fresh and delicious. Great wine list as well! Looking forward to returning soon!

    What a gem! Took my German family here as they wanted Italian for dinner, meaning Italian-Italian, not American-Italian. The food was amazing! Favorites were the Vongole appetizer and the Truffle Fiocchetti! Service was great as well. Very attentive and knowledgeable. We’ll be back!

    Love this restaurant, for eating al fresco…and excellent AND quick take-out! (Have never eaten inside…) Consistently delicious, with gracious service. Lots of menu items—something for everyone, although we are particular fans especially of the branzino, the pastas, the shrimp. The portions sizes are moderate. Will returns nd encourage others to. Bravo!

    When a restaurant serves wine by the glass and it looks like a tasting portion they are making their money by being cheap. It’s in a nice place. I’m afraid not for long. Food was not good either.

    Absolutely delicious! From the fresh vegetables in the salad to the most tender veal scallopini, this is 100% must do. The owners daughters are the servers. He’s from Italy and his wife is from Munich. It’s a shame only a few tables were seated despite it being off season. I would call it a hidden gem! A++++ rating.
