Had Our 27th Wedding Anniversary Dinner Here

I picked Fornelletto for our recent visit to the Borgata because I had looked it up on-line and was happy to see that they tell you which items on the menu are gluten-free. It's hard for me to eat out at times and I was glad that this restaurant went to the trouble to make it easier for me to... read more

Had a wonderful time here. Our server, Guiseppe, was amazing. He made suggestions and selected the cheeses for our cheese platter. The food was delicious. This is definitely a restaurant I will visit again. We ate in the dining room. They also have a small platters menu at the bar (big area) which we want to try too.

Like the food. Love the fresh mozzarella with tomatoes appetizer. Love that you can just go down and sit by the bar area and enjoy pizza and wine. Dislike that their red sauce tends to be too salty.

I ate at Fornelletto in March with 2 of my friends and we all had an excellent dinner. We started with the Roasted Red Pepper Appetizer which were very tasty. Our main entrees were so large we had ample food for 2 more dinners. The veal parm was so tender and delicious.I would definitely recommend this restaurant and I would... More

When at the Borgata Hotel or Atlantic City, Fornelletto is a great choice. It is located in the lower level of the Borgata Hotel, the ambiance is just beautiful from the stair case to the wine cellar. The food is just delicious, the mozzarella, the fresh cut prosciutto, and the fish and pasta dishes.

My husband and I went here with our friends for a nice dinner out while staying at The Water Club at the Borgata. We all ordered a 3 course meal from the prix fix menu that was part of the casino's restaurant week. I had the crostini with ricotta cheese spread for my appetizer. We all had ordered different appetizers,... More

The food here was exceptional. For being in the casino, it was quite a nice spread. Most rely on the location and less on the food. This restaurant did it all well. I will definitely eat here again.

We visited this acclaimed resturant as part of our date night to see Sarah McLaughlin. Although the service was adequate, it wasn't explemplerary. The meal itself was very disappointing. We ordered off the resturant week menu. Appetizers weren't bad but not over the top. Main course we were split. My Veal Osso Bucco ravioli was very tasty but my partners... More
