Linger at one of The New Ristorante Forli's tables long enough, and owners Gabriele Davanzante or Russ Belleci might sidle up to the table to tell a joke or spontaneously burst into an Old Italian song. Flourishes like these imbue The New Ristorante Forli with the aura of a traditional Italian trattoria. In addition to a pair of jovial Italian hosts, The New Ristorante Forli cements its status as a cultural bastion by plating classic dishes such as osso bucco and braised lamb shank. Tuscan chianti and California pinot grigio punctuate the restaurant’s extensive wine list. Additionally, dining companions can cast aside games of napkin peek-a-boo and dance to live music on Friday and Saturday nights.
Welcome to the East Bay’s Premier Wine shop and Lounge. We offer over 400 wines for purchase in the specialty retail shop and 35+ wines by the glass, taste or bottle in our wine lounge. We pride ourselves on service, and our knowledgeable staff.
Stomp! clobbers cravings with the one-two gastro-punch of an extensive global wine list complemented by a carefully constructed food menu heavy on small plates and high-concept American fare. Enjoy grape-loaded gulps of the Spanish white Nora Albariño ($9 per glass) or the Edna Valley Tolosa pinot noir ($12 per glass) on their own, or supplement your sips with an order of small-plate fare, such as stuffed eggs, which partner nature's most mouth-ready projectile with Serrano ham, capers, dijon mustard, and shallots ($4). Spicy shrimp empanadas tickle tongues alongside creamy avocado mole and crushed pumpkin seeds ($9), and an Italian sandwich ($8) uses prosciutto, salami, fresh mozzarella, arugula, and aged balsamic to evoke the culinary cunning and gondolier-fueled sing-alongs of Italy without the lingering threat posed by rickety leaning towers. On Tuesdays, epicures and aerialists can sashay over the Stomp! threshold for Flight Night, during which— for a flat fee of $12—they can enjoy a trio of wines alongside artisanal meats and cheeses while making airplane noises or miming the waterfowl of their choice.
Earthy hues, dark wood, warm lighting & a wall of windows create an inviting backdrop for your meal. The contemporary black granite bar & modern art add metropolitan chic to the room. For city quality dining, locals flock to this intimate restaurant where they are assured of impeccable & knowledgeable service.
