“Best value for money you will find is St. Gallen (and probably Switzerland)”
Review of Forchetta D'Oro

Forchetta D'Oro
Ranked #55 of 273 Restaurants in St. Gallen
Cuisines: Italian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 20 August 2015

This one is special. It’s quite small, opens only two days a week and has a bathtub in the restroom. Add the rather improvised decoration, and from the moment you are welcomed by the incredible warm and friendly staff, you feel like you were invited in a private home for dinner. The menu is small and everything on it is subject to availability of the fresh ingredients. Surprisingly, this is not one of those Italian places that stick to the basics but do them extremely well, this place doesn’t bother with serving the basics (mostly). Instead they offer seafood, steak and highly imaginative vegetarian options (try the homemade tortelloni with gorgonzola-chicory stuffing and chanterelles). Long story short: the food is outstanding.

This being Switzerland, the restaurant might not be exactly cheap by international standards. But considering the quality of the ingredients as well as the heart, soul and skill with which the food is prepared, you would be hard pressed to find better value for money in the region.

Oh, and don’t forget the book a table: It’s small, popular and more often closed than not ;)
