Description: La Forchetta" restaurant is situated in the heart of the old town centre of Parma, in one of the most beautiful and oldest buildings in the city, just a few steps from the Duomo and the Battistero. It is family-run and offers the finest of Parmesan cuisine as well as fish dishes, accompanied by the best wines. Tortelli stuffed with spinach and pumpkin, duchessa di Parma, braised veal cheeks, fish crudité, scallops in a salt and pepper crust, lobster tagliolini, tuna steaks and Catalan salad, are just a sample of the variety of our menu. Our bread and pasta are all home-made in the old-fashioned way and we are particularly careful in our choice of ingredients. It is also possible to eat outside. A visit to La Forchetta means enjoying a moment of pleasure, a delight to the taste buds, in the city of taste and fine cuisine!

“Fresh, authentic and nice food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

We had dinner at this restaurant. Fortunately, we had reserved a table, because the restaurant filled up quickly.

The food is excellent - fresh produce and very tasteful.

The service was good.

“Excellent Raw Fish”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

This was our second time at La Forchetta. Both times we had the raw fish appetizer- several oysters, gamberoni, shrimp, and 2 slices of fish. Tried the ravioli with squash. They were okay but not as good at La Filoma. The panna cotta with 3 sauces was excellent.

“Local Parma food at its best.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

The La Forchetta is definitely one of the best restaurants in Parma. The local starters, 24 year old Parma Ham and Culatello di Zibello, have been absolutely gorgeous. The noodles, Spaghetti with fresh tomato sauce or the Tortelli stuffed with pumpkin, have been outstanding. All together with a nice bottle of Prosecco. Great food combined with a nice service.
