Fodor's Expert Review Buona Forchetta
A golden-domed pizza oven, named Sofia after the owner’s daughter, delivers authentic Neapolitan-style pizza to fans who often line up for patio tables at this dog- and kid-friendly Italian restaurant in South Park. Slices of classic margherita or truffle-flavored mozzarella and mushroom pizzas make a meal or can be shared, but don’t miss the equally delicious appetizers like the tender calamari or succulent artichokes, heaping salads, or fresh pastas, including a hearty lasagna, delicate ravioli, or gnocchi with pesto. Enjoy house sangrias and wines by the carafe, a craft beer, or a glass of reasonably priced Italian wine. Save room for dolci, too—cannoli, gelato, tiramisu, and other Italian desserts.
