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.

    This is the second dinner we had there recently, and each time, the quality of the food and the service were top notch. Not an inexpensive dinner by any stretch, but everything was excellent

    2nd visit in two days, it’s that good! Went with the truffle spaghetti; AMAZING! Real truffle too, not the stuff that’s sometimes sold to you as truffle but tastes like nothing.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.
