Let me start off by saying I am a new York native that's been in search of a half way decent Italian restaurant since I first arrived in Florida.. I've been sadly disappointed at the restaurants in the broward county area and then I landed myself in the pompano Citi centre mall for a day of shopping when I stumbled upon a cozy Italian restaurant called Amato's. The decor is very warm and inviting and the music was simply delightful! I'm a huge Sinatra fan and they were playing some of his best! I was promptly greeted by an extremely friendly server & she made me feel at home! I started off with their home made pasta fagioli and some of the freshest rolls I've ever tasted- They literally melted in my mouth! The menu had everything you could ever imagine- but I decided to keep it simple with a penne ala vodka & of course I had to try a slice of their pizza. The slice was honestly the closest I've had to a NYC pie since I've been in Florida.. Thin and crispy with a soft chewy crust.. It was to die for! Then came the penne ala vodka and it was equally as impressive.. It was very obvious they use only Fresh ingredients and the pasta was cooked perfectly.. Al dente. I was even visited by the owner herself which showed me they really care about their customers.. Needless to say this is my new favorite Italian restaurant and I will be back again!

We have only enjoyed eating at Forketta twice so far. First time just the 2 of us, suggested by our friends at Palm Aire United. We had terrific authentic Italian food served by Italians. An absolutely wonderful experience. Today we had family visiting from out of town and asked for a reservation for 9. They called and confirmed mid day and the table was ready and accommodated the late addition. 10 of us walked out wonderfully fed, including pre-teen, 3 teens, and 6 post teens. I am a load it up with garlic pepper etc person and did not touch a shaker because the sauces were perfect. The pasta tomato sauce tasted like real tomatoes. 10 people walked out happily satiated by Delicious authentic Italian food. Try the Proseco or Chardonay! Enjoy Gene & Marcia
We usually order take out or delivery from here and it's normally good. Today we decided to eat at the restaurant. Garlic rolls were over cooked, sida was flat, slice of cheese pizza was over cooked and eggplant parm was overcooked. Italian bread that cane with entrées was served with no butter. I do have to say, today was not a good day here and we are usually pleased with there food. I guess I'll have to say that it is "hit or miss", which is disappointing because we thought we found a italian place that we could trust to always be good or great. Sorry guys, you missed it today!
