    Food was great and service was good. A little disappointed that we weren’t allowed to sit at the table requested when I made the reservation, but enjoyed the meal regardless.

    I have visited Forbici multiple times and I have realized their food is aggresively mediocre, especially their brunch. The ambiance is great with the patio and location but there are surely better food options in Hyde Park.

    We visit Forbici frequently and the food never disappoints. However, we did have reservations and still had to wait 30-40 minutes for our table. I would still recommend it over any restaurant in Hyde Park!

    The food is incredible. So fresh, your food comes piping hot - so good! We had the special pasta, which was Tortellini, asked for a pesto sauce instead of tomato - so amazing! We also got the Quattro Formaggi Pizza. So delicious and fresh cheeses. From a service standpoint, 5 stars! Alice, our server was fantastic!! So nice and helpful - but also friendly and attentive. Absolutely made the evening so special. Would absolutely come out again, this is a really great place!!

    It was my birthday had a reservation at 7:45 had to wait 25 minutes before getting sat. Service was not the best waited 5 minutes at our table. Our server every time we ordered would sit down at our table. My dad ordered a mojito, wasn’t even a mojito had no mint and they added lemon. My dessert had hair ( fuzz) in it. Was extremely disappointed.

    The pizza and pasta was amazing!! I wish I had taken a picture but we had the Funghi square pizza, I had the Spaghetti, and my Fiancé had the Cavatelli. We just went to Rome in May so we decided to try the food out here since they have Cacio e Pepe and the square pizza. It definitely lived up to my expectations!! Highly recommend!!!

    In this case the third time was not a charm. This was our third visit and may be our last. Our server acted like he was bored and doing us a favor. The food came out quickly - that was positive. The best interaction we had was with the hostess. She was very friendly and professional. I would like to know how to reserve and confirm an indoor table before I visit again.

    A so-so modern restaurant. Tables are very close together. Got quite loud on a Saturday night to the point where my voice hurt. Only saw the server to bring food and check at the end. Food was not bad but for the price and ambiance, it could have been better.

    Nice little Italian restaurant in Hyde park. It was our first time visiting and the ambiance was wonderful. The servers were welcoming and our waiter was friendly and was amazing when it came to questions we had or anything or that sort. On top of all that the food was amazing. If you ever go there, ask for Tristan, he was our server and he is amazing.

    The food was fantastic and I had just tried it the night before coming here. I had ordered the bolognese and Alfredo to go and I couldn’t even pick which one I loved more. Micheal who worked there was very courteous and patient, especially when my toddler started to act up at times. The baked bread was delicious and I’m obsessed with the pesto sauce. My steak was like butter 😍 I will definitely be visiting more often.

    It was a great first time visit. They were very busy the entire time we were there, in a good way. However, initially our server seemed rushed and in the same feel of how busy the restaurant was but we immediately told him we were not in a rush so that he would relax. Thereafter all went well, great service, excellent food and cool vibes.
