Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This restaurant is always fantastic. We have been going here for a few years and have never had a bad meal. It is usually very crowded and can get noisy but the food is better than anywhere in Stuart. Prices are fair and we always bring food home. This visit I enjoyed veal Francaise and my husband had veal parm....both were delectable. Wine was served with a great pour and they offer a half pour for those who don’t want a full 10oz pour. For dessert you must try the Tartufo....we did and it was spectacular......it fed four people for $13😊

We have gotten your takeout stuffed pasta shells twice since COVID-19 struck. Both times they were absolutely delicious......overfilled, creamy cheese filled, very tasty sauce covered pillows of deliciousness. Enough for 4 adults and a 22 mos old who loved them. My only complaint both times, was the size of the salad and the chewy tough garlic knots. There was plenty of room in the tray to stuff more salad in (or give two - lettuce is cheap), as it was not really enough to satisfy 4 hungry adults. This time the garlic knots were flat, very chewy and not really enjoyable. Their pizza is outstanding also. Whenever I mention La Forchetta, people tell me, "It's always our go to place for excellent Italian food!" Stuff that salad in that tray and make those garlic knots puffy and soft and you'll earn 5 stars next time!!

I have never written a review but I had to due to the experience we had last night at La Forchetta on Lost River Rd. We had reservations for 8 p.m. on Valentines Day. We arrived 30 minutes early and were seated in less than 10 minutes. Our server, who’s name escapes me, was a wonderful very helpful lady. The food was on another level. We were in and out within an hour and the acoustics of the restaurant were more than bearable. It really was a 5 star experience and my wife and would just like to say thank you. I had the traditional lobster ravioli and my wife had the lamb chops, epic!! My wife and I agreed the hostess, our server, and the young men that packaged our food and tended to the tables, all made this one of the best nights we’ve ever experienced in a restaurant. Thanks again!

Local eatery which was very noisy with little space between tables making conversation difficult. Unfortunately, other diners' conversations were too easily heard. One basic dish was good; another was not. Service was friendly & satisfactory. Good value for the food but wine by the glass was limited & unreasonably expensive.This was not a fine dining experience.

Very good Italian restaurant have ate here once before and my friends many times before...just so happens I was spending the night at the hotel next door and my friends were ordering in. The order was that one dish was going to be ate at the restaurant (my meal) well I was treated like a vagrant when I stated that I was going to eat my take out meal at the restaurant :( Finally I was seated and all was well...

The night before te stay at home order went into effect, we wanted to have one more dinner with our daughter, son-in-law and 10 mos old grandson. A friend recommended La Forchetta so we thought we'd give it a try. We got the stuffed shells family dinner and a large cheese pizza. It included salad, dressing and garlic knots. OMG, the stuffed shells were out of this world! Fresh, soft, moist, tasty filling, great sauce. More than enough for 4 adults and a baby. The salad dressing was also delicious and the garlic knots were a great combo of dough, garlic and oil. We smashed up some of the stuffed shells for our grandson and he thoroughly loved them! I think you may have one of your youngest fans yet!! Once they can open up for business, we will definitely return for a family dinner. We are new to this area and I think La Forchetta may be our go to Italian restaurant!!

Normally I would pick up my order from them.Today I was busy so I had them delivered instead. Big mistake order 2 large container of vodka sauce upon delivery I open them up and get 2 1/2 to 3/4 filled containers. Called them and was told they would give me 15% off my next order. Now I'm hoping I have enough for my party. Very disappointed

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate all feedbacks. I’m sorry that the containers were not filled to the rim as we usually do. Once you called us we did come back and delivered another container free of charge. We are sorry for your inconvenience. We look forward to serving you again.

I have been visiting my friend and her family in Palm Beach County. We have eaten at a few restaurants in the area. Last night we to La Forchetta in Stuart. The food was a bit pricey for what it was, but it was excellent. The garlic knots came out freshly baked, soft and warm and very garlicky Yum. I had one of the daily specials, Gnocchi Florentine , which was delicious. I cleaned my plate. I got a salad with it, which was small, but okay. My friend had the Eggplant Parmesan, which seemed like a small plate, but she said it was very good. She has the mushroom soup instead of salad, and said it was wonderful. Her husband had a shrimp dish which he said was good, but there were only 4 shrimp and it was $28. I have 3 major complaints about this restaurant. 1. It is very, very dark inside. I have macular degeneration and do not see well in the dark. If I had not had a flashlight, I would have been totally unable to read the menu. It is one thing to want a nice atmosphere, but please, let's not go overboard. 2. It was very cold. I asked one of the staff if they were trying to make us eat fast so we could leave before we froze to death and he said they couldn't change the setting because then it wouldn't work at al (time to get the AC fixed folks). 3. Although the staff fall wore masks, social distancing between tables was not observed. If not for these 3 problems, I would have given 4 stars, as the food was excellent, although pricey.

Its all about home cooking like you get in Italy ... great tasting and looking food with good service ... reservations necessary and a wait is still worth it. Fried Calamari with surprises of shrimp and mussels are light and delicious Francese Combo of Veal Chicken and Shrimp with Asparagus really good salad with Gorgonzola fresh and good

We have just had awonderful meal with wonderful wait staff. La Forchetta is a hidden gem for visitors but it appears well known to the local population. We ate outside with Connie as our waitress who excelled in her personality as well as her knowledge of the menu. While we waited for our meal, we witnessed a constant flow of visitors with reservations (which we recommend) as well as picking up to go orders. Our meal was served piping hot and delicious. We highly recommend La Forchetta to all!

We were staying at the Marriott Courtyard across Rt. 76 and asked about a close restaurant. La Forchetta was a five minute drive . The waitress was attentive, her wine choice was excellent, as were the Clams & Mussels, and the Veal Piccata.

No exaggeration here. We were visiting from Denver and the hotel we were staying at was next door. We arrived around 7:30 pm and noticed the parking lot was packed. We waited for almost an hour but it was well worth it. While we were waiting they took our drink order and the wine pours were very generous. After half a glass, the wait didn't seem nearly as long. The food was freshly made and the portions could have easily been shared.

This restaurant has great food. Would have given it a 5 rating but I was angered by their credit card use charge of 3 %. Their food prices have steadily increased to upper 20’s to low 30’s for an entre…. many of which are pasta dishes. Dinner 4 for 2 with a glass of wine, tax and tip is about $100 forcing you to carry around extra cash. I am forced to override this 3% charge by reducing my usual 20% tip to 17%.
