This place was right across the street from our hotel. We tried it on account of the decent reviews from trip advisor. Unfortunately, it was just ok. There was nothing that made this place stand out. I had vodka penne and my husband had the fettuccine with grilled shrimp. Shrimp was delicious, the pasta was ok. We also ordered the... More

Always a favorite! Freshest ingredients, innovative Italian cuisine, consistent, excellent service by seasoned staff, great wines and reasonable prices. All of this makes La Forcetta our " go to" restaurant whether taking special guests, the family or " date night" .

Italian in Cabo? YES!!! We made reservations here as it was across the street from our resort, Cabo Azul, and was a personal recommendation from a local we met while grabbing a drink at Flora Farms Bar. Dinner was delicious! We ordered seafood pasta, seared tuna gnocchi, rack of lamb, and shrimp & asparagus risotto. Highly recommend!

After poring over Trip Advisor reviews, we thought La Forchetta would be an excellent change of pace. I was looking forward to a great plate of pasta. What I got was memorable but for the wrong reason. The "seafood" pasta contained exactly two identifiable pieces of seafood, an overlooked shrimp and a single ring of calamari. The rest were small,... More

We had an amazing Italian dinner last night at Forchetta. The appetizers were delicious - beef and artichoke carpaccio were both exceptional. For dinner one of us tried a special - poblano chicken risotto - a great combination of traditional Italian and spicy Mexican. The lemon lobster risotto was also exceptional. Our waiter, Edgar, made the evening even better -... More
