    Sat outside on a beautiful evening. All the noise and loud live music left inside! Food was terrific. Appetizer meat balls were delicious, and the grouper dinner was done just right, plus one of the best wedge salads I’ve ever had! Mercedes was a very attentive server.

    Eliana was absolutely the reason why my girlfriends and I came back ONE DAY LATER. She was so attentive and helpful but not overbearing. She is the reason why we think the wings are THE BEST. I absolutely love coming here because of her and the bartender Megan!!! We will be back for more Margaritas and I can’t wait for more pizza. Keep up the smiling faces. Great job ladies.

    I made the mistake of trying dinner on Gasparilla Day weekend. It was a madhouse, but I figured since I had a reservation, I would be ok. The reservation was useless. I was placed outside at a small table behind the door. I waited for service while celebratory drunks stood over me and dropped drinks breaking glass. By the time someone finally came to give me a menu, I gave up and left.

    We were seated 10mins later, we were asked what we wanted to drink. Linguini and clams had more clam shells than actual clams. Water dripped on my head from a water pipe above me.

    Food was amazing, service was great, music was pretty loud and club style, which was not necessary, and didn't match everything else about the restaurant. But overall really great experience.

    An interesting and wide-ranging menu with numerous GF offerings and many fresh takes on Italian food. The service was amiable and efficient. Salad greens and dressings were fresh, carpaccio was sinful, and proteins were artfully prepared. Strong wine list, inventive cocktail menu--a standout among some stiff competition in Hyde Park Village. Don't miss it.

    It was my daughters bday and they didn’t wish her until I mentioned even though I stated in my reservations. And than When I asked her to bring something she forgot and bought us the bill. I reminded again and she bought a donut with no candle and said we don’t have any. My 12 year old and I were very disappointed

    I took my mom to Forbici for lunch and we had an amazing time!! Our waitress was amazing, the food was delicious, and the overall vibe of the restaurant was great!! They also had live music which was a nice surprise! I got the Cacio e Pepe and my mom got the Cavetelli, and we both loved our meals!! We will definitely be going back soon :)

    Forbici is good, not great. Pizza is good. We had Brussels sprouts which were not good—mushy and oily. Cocktails were all too sweet. Service was excellent, but overall the food could be much better. It’s such a great location though.

    Great happy hour specials and a vibrant area for enjoying dinner with friends. The food on this particular visit was a little "off" compared to previous visits. So I wouldn't say it's the norm for this happening place in Hyde Park. Go with the pasta dishes, the meatballs, and their Margarita Siciliana.

    We were celebrating a birthday and indicated so on our online reservation. I also called the restaurant to confirm we could add an additional person to our table without changing our reservation time and told them over the phone we were celebrating a birthday. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were seated at a table near the bar area. We learned after a few minutes there was a special event going on and it was so loud we had to yell to be able to hear each other. The waitress also had trouble hearing us when we placed our drink, appetizer, and food orders. There were no tables outside or we would’ve moved to one of those. It took our waitress too long to come over and greet us, take our drink order, and ultimately take our dinner order. When asked about multiple things on the menu, she was not sure. She also asked us if we were celebrating a special event, so I can only assume this information does not transfer through the online reservation process. This restaurant had been recommended to us by several people so my expectations were high. The food was delicious so I would definitely go back, but I would ask first if there were any special events going on as it was just too loud where we were seated to be enjoyable. I would also be home for that. I would also ask to be in a section with a different server.
