I sat outside where you can see the movie playing in the background (with adjustable speakers behind the table) which was super cute, and felt cozy even on a rainy day. The service was above and beyond! Yummy food for reasonable prices. Highly recommend for dates and friends :)

We discovered Forza Storico earlier this week by a friend’s referral. My son and I enjoyed it SO much, I’m taking other family/friends back this weekend. The best quality of our dining experience was our server, Carlos. He provided the BEST service I’ve ever experienced at any restaurant in my past, including all fine dining experiences. If you go (which I HIGHLY recommend!), ask for Carlos to serve you and ask/take his advice on ANY menu choices!!! The food was the best authentic Italian I’ve had since actually being in Italy years ago. Cost was a good value. And it was a very unique and enjoyable environment. Loved the decor! It will DEFINITELY be a go-to restaurant for us!

We made a meal of starters only. Croquetas, tartare, shrimp, a dozen oysters, Caesar salad. Fantastic. Sit in a quiet part of the restaurant. It won’t be quiet but at least tolerable. Great service from knowledgeable staff. Wine too expensive. Tuesday and Wednesday for half price wine.

Ona gorgeous day, sit outside! The ambience is perfect. The food was delicious and drinks were tasty. We had the brisket stuffed bread, pimento cheese, chicken fried steak, burger, mac and cheese and caesar salad for our food and the Old Fashioned, Mezcal margarita and Texas Fight cocktails. Also, there is a chocolate dessert and a strawberry cake that are the best way to end a meal. We can't wait to go back!
