Cucina Forte Review

Chef Maria Forte turns out plenty of Italian classics, including heavenly homemade gnocchi plus fanciful dishes such as Maria's Dream Soup (a mix of pork, chicken, and seafood with pasta), a true delight. A cream cake makes a delectable finish. Cucina Forte serves lunch by appointment only.

    In Love in South Philly

    Cucina Forte was an exceptional experience. With the charm of the South Philly neighborhood, a beautiful woman sitting across from me, and food that was outstanding, Cucina Forte was a great evening out. My girlfriend ordered the Tricolore salad with goat cheese and seafood special that was excellent, I ordered the gnocchi and Involtini Di Vietello (rolled veal in spinach and provolone.) The service was outstanding (Vinnie was great). Very memorable evening - I fell in love with my girlfriend again, decided I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her and made sure we would come back many times to our favorite restaurant in South Philly.
