Buona Forchetta blends award-winning Neapolitan-style pizzas and Northern Italian upscale entrees in a family-friendly, approachable space. Its newest Encinitas location boasts a quaint outdoor patio in addition to indoor seating for guests who want to enjoy a cooling ocean breeze with their meal. Inside, a gilded oven, 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.
