Feel at home at La Forchetta!

Owner Ben Benet is pleased to share his little Italian gem in the heart of Islington that is known as La Forchetta!

The decadence of the dinning room gives off a feeling of true comfort. Ben is frequently there to welcome you himself and to take you through the menu, wine list and specials. And if needed, Monserrato doesn’t hesitate to give directions from the kitchen!
Without a doubt, the welcome is one of the reasons why this place is so special. Diners feel part of the warm atmosphere, while sharing a delicious Italian experience with food and wine that doesn’t disappoint.

“We are passionate about our food and our customers” – Ben Benet


What to order? It’s tough given the appealing menu, though the linguine with lobster is one of the chef’s specialties. The sauce is delicate and the mix between the shellfish and pasta is absolutely perfect. Salads are well balanced too but what you will really appreciate overall is the freshness and selection of all ingredients – fish, cheese or ham. Wine wise, trust their recommendations and you’ll be pleased that you did.
What will make you go back again and again to La Forchetta is the warmth of the welcome, the chat with the owner, the tips from the chef about his tomato sauce, the whole atmosphere and obviously the food, all of which will make you addicted to this “feel good” restaurant.  See for yourself and enjoy a wonderful experience.
