    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 our first time dining in at Forbici. Everything was delicious. The server was incredibly attentive and the food came out fast. We never felt rushed, but we were happy to get our food in a timely manner. The apps, pizza, entrees and desserts were amazing value for the portions. Delicious cocktails too! We can’t wait to come back!!

    Have been there many times, but yesterday was not our best visit. Had to wait for over 20 min (even though we had a reservation), the service was slow (to the point we had to leave and take food to go) and the pizza was not good at all. Hopefully next time we have a better experience!

    Went here for Father’s Day. Our first time going. The area where this restaurant is located is very nice. The restaurant itself is very elegant and modern. I really liked it. The only bad thing was how close the tables were to each other. We could hear everyone’s conversation and not the restaurant’s fault but some of the patrons were using foul language and I had my 7 year old who could hear it all. Some people just aren’t aware of their surroundings and they aren’t courteous enough to realize there might be kids around. Anyway when someone would get up to use the restroom or leave, their butts were literally right in your face- that’s how close the tables were. Our server was very nice and very good and attentive. Our food came out fairly quickly and it was tasty. One thing I would say is that their small portions are literally the portions for a child. So if you’re really hungry make sure you get the bigger portion. Overall it was nice, but not sure if we would go back.

    We’re there for Father’s Day and while not crowded, the service was pretty terrible and orders incorrect. Pretty disappointing. Pizza was good but everything else was just so so. FGT salad was totoally tasteless.

    This was our first restaurant in Hyde Park. What an amazing place. We started with the calamari. Beautifully cooked and the side sauce was amazing. My wife had the mushroom risotto which was the best she ever had. My son and I had theblunch special of pizza and salad. Everything was hot amd delicious. Great restuarant!!!

    The food was very good and served hot. A nice Cab for the meal. Meatballs with Ricotta for appetizer. Then I had the Cavatelli with steak. I wish they a divideron the table between communal seating so my neighborhood wouldn't keep bumping me. But overall very enjoyable Saturday Evening.

    Overall Forbici was an excellent experience. Appetizers were outstanding. Main courses were hit and miss. Broiled Swordfish and eggplant lasagna outstanding. The Veal cutlet (2 meals) was overcooked and dried out. Appetizers were delicious. Service could have been better...waiter had to be remined twice to bring utensils, and twice to bring salt. VERY loud on Saturday nights.
