There is never a vacant table here (at least not in August) system used to be queue and wait but now you can book which is essential if you don't want a 2 hour wait. Great pizza and well prepared standard Italian dishes. Part of the charm is the bustle of the place not somewhere to sit and have a leisurely meal. We have been to Forte many times and always eat here once or twice as a side issue it must be one of the cheapest places to eat in Forte (but that doesn't make it cheap in absolute terms).

We were advised by many friends to go have dinner at this place as they said it's tasty.
It's always busy for dinner and they don't really take reservations, so one evening we came earlier and were lucky to get a table.
Or so we thought.
We ordered pizza bocconcina, carpaccio, pasta with bologna sauce, and some salads.
And I have to say that nothing tasted delicious or even good to have all of this hype about this place.
I saw people at the table next to us complaining about the same thing.

Carpaccio was dry and had no taste. Pizza we didn't even finish a slice. And most surprisingly they don't have attentive service. It's like a fast food where everyone is just occupied with bringing out orders and that's it.

Overall, a disappointing restaurant totally not worth the hype about it.
Good side was that it's not as expensive as some places in forte so at least u feel less upset about the fact that it's so bad:

What a place?! Between 4 people we ordered 2 starters and 4 main courses. First 1 starter and 1 main course arrived. Then a pizza (for the person whose starter had arrived). Then the other two main courses, then some bread, then the final starter. When we pointed out the late arriving starter we were told it was on its way. The staff started clearing plates away before meals were finished. Apart from this bizarre performance the food was really nice, and this restaurant was packed whilst the others in the square were barely half full. Reasonable prices considering the area.

We heard so much about it and wanted to try it. Three evenings in a row we couldn’t get a table in it. The wait time was always 1,5 hours as we needed a table for 8-10 people. It was always buzzing with people. People lined by it waiting to be seated. So you naturally think that it must be great as people go for such lengths to eat only there. Restaurants on the main square in Forte Dei Marmi are all busy, but none like Bocconcino. In most of the other places you could get a table, waiting 10 minutes or right away.
So when we finally were able to get a table and have dinner, we were a bit disappointed. Maybe it is because of high expectations. Possibly. But food in Italy is good in most places. Here it was ok. Not jaw dropping great. Just regular. Fine pasta, pizza was ok, but not the best I ever tasted. The service was not great. In a busy place like it is, it’s hard to expect better. So overall it was disappointing. I wouldn’t go next time. Better to have similar quality of food in less busy places with better service.
