I now remember why i stopped eating at La Forketta.
The pizzas are very good here, and the complimentary roving bread basket is a nice touch. But for the exorbitant prices - pizzas are $32 and above, even for a simple Margherita, pastas at least 30-40 for not particularly generous portions, meats are 40 and above such as a small roasted spring chicken for 39, veal escalope 45, - it's no wonder the restaurant is too scared to list its menu on its website. Noone would come otherwise! There are lots of other Italian restaurants with better prices, food and service.
The service here is appalling. You have to ask/nag for water at least several times. The waiter offers to clear our plates but when i ask if new plates will be given as not all our food is here yet, he decides that he will leave the stack of dirty plates which are spilling sauce already, on the table so he doesn't need to bother giving us new plates again. My pizza which was promised in '2 minutes' takes another half an hour to arrive. Given the majority of us had finished our mains already, i asked for it to go, and that took another 30', and i had to go and hunt it down myself.
I counted at least 5-7 wait staff in the restaurant, which is not exactly a big place, but they are unable to provide a basic level of service it seems.
Seriously, save your money or take it somewhere else, rather than this overrated restaurant.
