Felt like a fast food restaurant

The entire dinner (2 course meal + drinks) took just under 45 minutes! Is this their over-reaction to some recent reviews complaining of slow service? The design is very cozy and romantic. If you want to present yourself as an upscale restaurant the service should be appropriate. Our waitress was... read more

To be completely honest, my husband and I almost did not make our reservation last night. We were very tempted by all the distractions of Atlantic city to skip the fancy dinner and just play. This would have been a huge mistake. Fornaletto is a romantic not formal place. The waitstaff was engaging and great but not pushy or intimidating.... More

We had a great meal at Fornelletto. My wife and I both had Tuscan vegetable soup followed by scallops topped with beets, served on a bed of mashed potatoes. We had lemon sorbet for dessert. Ava, our waitress was extremely helpful to our every need. Our water glasses were constantly refilled. This was truly a wonderful dining experience.

Had a dinner meeting with 7 others earlier this week and while the food was pretty good---I literally had to go and track down the server to get our bill.....couple hours would have been great, but took us almost 3 hours. Had us in an interior private room with glass walls, that was pretty cool.

Started out with a choice of tap, bottled or sparkling H20 ($10 bottled) ...(should have known that it would be a that kind of night) We had read reviews about the 50 under $50 wine list and decided to give it a try. That was a 1st ... paying $38 for a twist off (no cork) bottle of pinot g.... More

Went here for my birthday last year. The prosciutto and mozzarella was so delicious, it was too die for. We ordered a bunch of appetizers and loved all of them. The wine was so good, the staff can recommend you one if you don't know what to get to your meal. The restaurant was beautiful, I felt like I'm in... More

Our meal was good. Whipped ricotta appetizer is a must try. Stuffed squid was pretty good as was my lobster pasta entree. The wife got lamb shank which was good, but came with a large piece of sausage which was strange and served over subpar cous cous. Restaurant is nice and sort of feels like you are going to a...

The atmosphere was great and service was good. I had the calamari app and despite the pieces being much larger than I usually prefer, it was delicious. I had the veal ravioli and it was delicious but the sauce was too rich and buttery for me to order again. The prices were high for the meals and drinks but I... More
