Food, beverage, and services are top on my quality check list. Frankly, enjoyed the small but fine setting. However, did not like the strong "cheese" smell in the hall.

From the casino floor of Borgata……. a hidden secret in the Italian Restaurant Fornelletto. Beautiful setting for fine dining experience. You go down winding stairs to a basement wine cellar. Lovely decor. Service was excellent. Very attentive and never rushed. Wine is expensive. I had a good Riesling and one of our guests had a nice Merlot. Started with hearts... More

Their Wine down Wednesday is cool. Deals on drinks and apps in the bar area. The apps we had were very good, and all somewhat reasonable prices. When we sat down for dinner, service was average. I ordered a meal that came with no sides, and the server didn't offer or suggest anything. He wasn't bad, but wasn't good either.... More

I have been here several times and always the service is top notch!! I cannot rate the entrees because I can't seem to pass the appetizers. Each time we go I order 5 or 6 appetizers and make a tapas type of meal. I would recommend all of the appetizers...they are all great! Wine list is excellent and when I... More

Dined here with my best friend. We had reservations and did not have to wait for a table. All the dishes were excellent although heavy and rich. Service was very good but our waiter kept correcting our pronunciation of the dishes which was a bit annoying. Overall, food was good but you'll need a nap after.

At the last minute we decided to eat at Fornelletto. Event though we did not have a reservation, we were able to get a seat in the bar area which was fine. Both the service and food were top notch. Well worth a visit if you are in the Borgata.

We got an $100 dining credit with our reservation at the Borgata and decided to use it at Fornelletto. Service was pleasant, polite and professional-what you'd expect from a restaurant like this. We started with a meatball app- reminded me of the ones my best friend's italian grandmother used to make on Sundays when we were kids! Very fresh and... More
