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.

    It is always a pleasure to enjoy an evening at Forchetta. The truffled pasta is divine as are so many of the dishes and the Sicilian wines are fun to discover. The evening would not be complete without one of the fabulous desserts.

    This family run Italian spot is a true gem in KB. The lobster ravioli is fabulous. The beef ragu was perfectly prepared with gnocchi. All the pasta is house made and the owner, Mario along with his daughters Raphaella and Allysandro are wonderful hosts. We had a wonderful time talking wine with Mario and sharing stories of Florence with Alyssandro. We can’t wait to return!

    Loved this authentic Italian restaurant. The owner is from Sardinia. Everything was delicious The Sardinian wine should be explored. We loved the red and the white. Service is lovely and very personable.

    The experience was 5 star from beginning to end. We arrived early for our reservation on a Saturday night and were seated right away in the lovely outdoor patio. The host recommended Branzino which my husband ordered and it was delicious. I had the lobster ravioli which was also delicious. All of the pasta is homemade. Honestly, we don’t have one negative thing to say. The ambience and food feels very authentic Italian, exact opposite of cheesy Italian chains. Thank you for a lovely dining experience.

    We were passing through Key Biscayne and thought this looked like a nice cozy Italian place. We were delighted. Family feel, obviously a significant number of regulars. The food was excellent. This is the kind of restaurant food lovers should leap to support.

    The best part of this place is the mother of the owner who is a very sweet German lady and it pains me to write this review: It was New Years Day- can you really judge a place on a holiday? Some would say yes. Very, very expansive and just okay food. Presentation was not impressive- service was well meaning but not professional . We constantly needed water, cheese, pepper- as it was not offered. Again it was a holiday so maybe, hopefully things are better normally. Candidly, everyone in our party was disappointed. The family that owns and runs this place is very nice- but really there are so many amazing places in Miami- this just is not one I can honestly recommend. I wish the family well and hope this review inspires them to improve.

    This has become one of our “go-to” places to dine in the key. The food is consistently top notch - their home made pastas are especially memorable - and the service relaxed but attentive and professional. If it is not on your list for Key Biscayne dining it should be.
