Absolutely Terrible

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 ....

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.
