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

We have been there twice and the service and food is outstanding. Very strong wine menu. Getting in without reservation is difficult but there is a great deal of seating at the bar without a reservation. Highly recommend this as a spot if you are headed to the Borgata for an evening or concert.

Arrived a little early so we sat at the bar to have a drink. Mark the bartender was very friendly and a pleasure to talk to. We were seated shortly and our waiter was extremely attentive and explained everything we needed to know about the dishes on and off the menu. The noise level was high but okay. The artichoke...
