Using exquisite ingredients from southern Italy, this well-established restaurant offers a menu of traditional Apulian food, including pasta made fresh everyday. There's a wide selection of pastas, pizzas and main courses, with the pizzas being especially popular.
My family and I go to La Forketta at Dempsey for lunch almost every week and it still maintains it's excellent quality. The food there is amazing and the pasta is always fresh and delicious. They also provide a basket of bread for every sitting. Furthermore, you can choose to have sparkling or still water served. The atmosphere is perfect for lunches and dinners as it is brightly lit during the day and dimly lit with fireglow at night, creating the perfect dinner scene. Even though the waiting time might be a little bit long, maybe 20 to 30 min, it is definitely worth it as they only serve the best ingredients. Even the olive oil and tomatoes hint of great quality. Also, you can actually see the pizzas being made! I recommend the Tagliatelle Ragu and the pizza with parma ham and rocket salad. The seafood anitpasti is also very good. Every meal there ends with smiling faces and full stomachs. A must try for all. Definitely my favourite Italian restaurant. Overall, a huge thumbs up!
I came here a few years ago and had awful food; I tried it again last night and it is even worse. This has got to be the worst Italian restaurant in town. Everything (except the pizzas) is pre-prepared and tasteless. The pasta was undercooked, the sauce was bland and there was not enough of it and the potatoes were almost raw. The cheesecake dessert was disgusting, and they didn't even have the sauce they advertised. And this place is expensive. All 4 in our party were hugely disappointed, and with very high prices it is ridiculous. AVOID at all costs; this place is one big rip off!
I had one of the worst experiences in this restaurant. The food was bad, the service was not good and the chef seems to be against his customers. We were 4 pax and every single dish we ordered had some problem. The service was terrible too and the chef refuses to cook the type of pasta we ordered. My girlfriend wanted carbonara with fettuccine pasta rather than spaghetti. The waiter came back and told us that the chef "refuses" to cook carbonara with fettuccine... as if he was creating some kind of masterpiece, instead we got a seriously lousy, undercooked spaghetti floating in a runny tasteless soup .. None of as will never go back there ....
