When is a BYOB so tiny, it's more like dining in a private home?

That may be the case at the day-old Forcella, a plush, Italian 14-seater two doors from Drake Tavern in downtown Jenkintown.

Jose and Jennifer Vargas, who burst on the scene in 2007 with the two-bell Rylei in Mayfair, are offering three- and four-course tasting menus ($44 and $55, and there are vegetarian options) in the former Wild Dog House at 310 Old York Rd. (267-400-6155).

It's open Tuesday to Saturday, 5 to 9 p.m. and is cash/check only.

Check chef Tim Thomas' menu here.

The Vargases also own the nearby Leila's Bistro, and recently divested their interest in Leila’s Trattoria in Elkins Park (now known as Sicilian Trattoria).
