Forza Storico is a traditional Italian restaurant focused on typical Roman dishes such as Carbonara, Amatriciana, Cacio e Pepe and may more. Our Italian wine list is comprised of 80 labels, 30 of which by the glass and all chilled to perfection. Half of the restaurant is a central bar with additional high top seating available first come first served. Our extensive beverage program includes 15 cocktails and over 30 Italian beers. Just like our sister restaurant Storico Fresco in Buckhead, we believe in great food, simple service, and giving our patrons a fun experience...When in Rome!!

    It was so good! From the moment we arrived it was a great experience. The lady that took us to our table was really nice. The restaurant was really cool with an awesome vibe. We had a wonderful waitress named Sofia. She broke down the menu for us and gave us really good recommendations. Our food was delicious! I would absolutely recommend this restaurant.

    Amazing meal! This is not your typical Italian food. From our appetizers through desserts, everything was delicious. Two of us had salmon, perfectly cooked. One had the Branzino and loved the way it was seasoned and prepared. I had the tagliatelle bolognese and it was rich and creamy like someone’s grandmother made it with love. And the caprese salad, get out of here! So tasty!!! I’ll be giving this place a shout out on my podcast, Midlife Moxie, and will definitely be back.

    The food and drinks were great! We came here for a birthday dinner recently. It's a great restaurant however we did not have a good experience this time. The service was extremely disappointing. It was mainly just our server that was the issue. We would of ordered more and stayed longer but he neglected our table and ghosted us while serving the other tables next to us.

    One of my favorite Italian restaurants. The spaghetti Bolognese has always been amazing. But, it's obvious they are feeling the effects of inflation. The portion sizes are smaller and the sauce is almost nonexistent now. I wish they would charge more instead of skimp.

    Terrible service… been here many times over the years and just isn’t the same place. Took us 3 hours to order a very basic meal on a Tuesday when they were not that busy. 45 minutes to get our drinks and some bread. Only saw our waiter a handful of times in 3 hours yet they auto tip 22% on parties…4 adults and 2 kids. Their tipping policy doesn’t align with their website. Some food items were never brought in the table and drinks mixed up. Just not the experience of a $100 a person meal. May try again but it will be a long time.

    My partner, a friend and I dined on a Saturday evening. We didn’t experience the wait for a table, but service was pretty slow and disjointed. We never fully established who our server was, as various people dropped off dishes, removed plates and took orders. We started with drinks and bread service, but we had to ask the bar for appetizer plates. We then waited a while before a server came to take the rest of our order. The frito misto tasted of old oil and was not crispy. When the server dropped off our “entrees”, he put them all in the center of the table rather than at each of our places, and he seemed perturbed when we asked which was which. The ricotta ravioli was good as was the broccolini. My partner and friend had the arrabiatta and bolognese and the said it was ok, but portions were more like small plates. We passed on dessert. The parking code posted on the wall worked for us, but a totally different code was on our receipt, so not sure if they both work. Aside from service and small portions, what would dissuade me from coming was the atmosphere- disco lights, loud music and high top tables in the dining area are not our preference for a relaxing dinner out. We’ve been to the buckhead location and felt service, food and atmosphere there was better.

    Busy Saturday night. Had to wait for a table despite reservation. Service very slow (menu warns of this due to staffing). Appetizer never came at all. $4 for a small semi-burnt baguette. Food was fine, but after the long wait it was a little underwhelming.

    Enjoyed my birthday dinner here with my husband. We were seated just a few minutes after we arrived on time for our 6:30 outdoor reservation. I tried the Oaxacan Negroni which was fabulous, and we shared some pastas and the branzino and green beans on the side. All of the food was delicious and we will be back! Know that the parking is limited, and there is a valet but it is $10 for 4 hours. The host said they do not subsidize the valet or validate parking unlike Redbird upstairs.
