Officine Buona Forchetta

About Us

Officine Buona Forchetta blends award-winning Neapolitan-style pies and Northern Italian upscale entrees in a family-friendly, approachable space. Located in the heart of Liberty Station, the 2,600 square-foot restaurant boasts two oversized patios, offering families their very own seating complete with playground and secure space to romp while parents enjoy their meals. Inside, two gilded ovens, helmed by Pizza World Champion and Pizzaiolo Marcello Avitabile, churns out classic creations, while the main kitchen serves up chef-driven pastas and entree dishes. Owner Matteo Cattaneo brought the Italian warehouse-style eatery to life with industrial seating, hand-drawn murals, and a vintage Fiat repurposed into a table for two.

A PIZZA NAPOLETANA is made with a soft dough and takes about two minutes to cook in a wood-fire burning oven. Because of this, a Pizza Napoletana has several distinctive characteristics. Pizza in Napoli is soft and foldable and can be considered “wet” by American standards. For this reason the people of Napoli generally eat their pizza with a knife and fork. Blackened char spots on the pizza crust is a tell-tale sign of a Pizza Napoletana that has been cooked in a blistering hot, wood burning oven. Each pizza is different and is an individual work of art, passion, and dedication.
