The few things we had were very good. Nice pasta and bolognese, my wife liked the pizza. Appetizer of cured meats was nice but a little hard to understand the 20+ minute wait. Recommended glass of wine was not great. Server forgot the ordered after dinner port and delivered the...read more check without being asked for or offered coffee.

We went to Forli for dinner after reading great reviews on Yelp. I made reservations ahead of time although there were open tables when we arrived. Service was outstanding with the owner (Roberto) stopping by our table two times. They treat you like you're family and very important. He brought...read more us a complimentary appetizer (meatballs over polenta). It was so good that we will order that again. Our cocktails were excellent. My dinner (chicken cacciatore) was very dry. The men ordered the Linguine with seafood (Frutti di Mare) which they both liked very much and my friend had the special lamb which she enjoyed. We tried two desserts (tiramisu which was ok and the torta di limone which was AMAZING!) At the end of the meal, Roberto stopped by again with several bottles of liquor to try on the house including their housemade limoncello. It was yummy. We will be back because of the great customer experience provided and I will order something else instead of the chicken.read less
This is our first time back since the Forli reopened and it's still good! The pear and cheese pasta purses is still my favorite dish. We also had the short ribs and they were super delicious! Great place for date night. Highly recommend. A+
We are thrilled to have Forli's reopen in Alamo. We have dined in the restaurant probably 6 or 7 times and the food and service has been consistently outstanding. We have also eaten at the bar, and the bartenders have been attentive, and make terrific drinks. I have enjoyed the...read more octopus carpaccio appetizer. The eggplant parmesan appetizer was absolutely delicious and I usually don't like the dish, but Forli's version was fabulous. The salmon, pesto shrimp gnocchi, spaghetti & meatballs are also fabulous. One of my favorites is the seafood linguine. The owners are usually in the restaurant and greet the customers personally. If you come in for the Happy Hour, the bartender pours you a nice glass of Chianti, which is complimentary. The ambiance of the restaurant is very nice, and the music is excellent and is played at an appropriate level, which allows for good conversation. I couldn't be more pleased. If you like Italian food and are in the area, I highly recommend.read less
What a great experience. Start with The Godfather cocktail then the eggplant appetizer. We shared braised short ribs and fiocchi. Love the place
We couldn't tell that it was open from the outside as the doors are dark, so glad that we checked!This is our new favorite place. The handmade pasta was amazing. We will be back for sure!
Enjoyed the eggplant parm, octopus carpaccio & meatballs to start... lasagna was delicious as was the salmon and Branzino... pesto gnocchi was ok, pesto sauce wasn't great. Edgar is the best server, very attentive and great suggestions. Loud, lively atmosphere is family friendly. Two thumbs up!
Amazing! They must have spent a fortune on this place. You would never know from the out side, a little strip center in sleepy little Alamo but when you walk inside boom! It rivals any San Francisco's fine Italian restaurant. The service was amazing, Paula was knowledgeable about everything on...read more the menu, fun and efficient and really made us feel welcome, an owner stopped by to recommend a desert and then introduced us to the manager who even though was very busy the palce was packed, on a Sunday night, he took time to come back and make sure we enjoyed the deserts. Honestly, they made us feel like celebrities. They invited us back for a Saturdaynight experience with DJ and dancing in the bar after dinner. On the way home my wife said "This is my new favorite place!" Oh ya, I almost forgot the bill had us smiling as well. I found the prices refreshing especially for this part of the world.read less

My family enjoyed this place, from their classic Italian entrees to the lively atmosphere and friendly service which was very accommodating to our large group. We sat in the private dining room area near the wine room. Our family shared some appetizers: Polpette angus beef & pork meatballs on a...read more bed of creamy polenta and Prosciutto di parma pizza with arugula which were a great start and tasty too.For the main, hubby had the Linguine ai frutti di mare with fresh mix of seafood: shrimp, scallops, calamari & clams in fresh plum tomato sauce. I had the House-made Gnocchi al pesto gamberi with shrimp, and the gnocchi was soft, pillowy and flavorful. Dinner ended with a traditional tiramisu which was so rich, velvety and d'lish.On the last Saturday of every month, there's DJ music in the bar around 9:30pm, so we had a chance to dance, drink and have more fun.read less
Went back tonight and the same French waiter that we had a less than great experience with tonight was great! Such a different experience! Tonight was a very different experience. Sometimes people have a bad night. He really seemed to have taken the feedback.. All good tonight! Again, food was...read more very good! I am super happy that this place did not give up!
