Should go more often

The restaurant selections in The Borgata are very good. We definitely forget about the Fornelletto because of the location in the building. We often come in on the other side and play over there which makes it out of sight out of mind. A shame because it is good. We sat at a high top because we... read more

Was here with friends and we're staying at the hotel. Restaurant has a nice vibe with a wine cellar feel. However I felt the entree selections were somewhat limited (lots of appetizer options though). The service was terribly slow, and I am a fan of slow un-rushed service but this was too much. Out waiter was very good at recommendations... More

Let me start out by saying that the food wasn't "bad" per se. It just wasn't as good as it could/should have been. The restaurant is below ground, an elevator will bring you there. They were going for the Italian "wine cellar" vibe, which was nice. I started out with the Grilled stuffed squid, which is something I love normally.... More

Recently visited the Borgata Hotel and Casino with my GF. Having dined at some of the other good restaurants here, my GF and I tried Fornelletto, which is an Italian restaurant. We entered the restaurant around 6:45 without a reservation and chose to sit at the bar. The service was good as was the food. I enjoyed the veal francaise... More

Since I am primarily a fish eater, I ordered the Bronzino. In most cases, the chef uses this entrée as a way of displaying their skills and originality, since it can be served so many ways. In almost all cases, it is served as a whole wish and or it is filet tableside. This was not the case here. I... More

Usually we eat at Bobby Flays but I wanted something different. Really enjoyed this place. The menu wasn't huge but what they had was unique and they also accommodated Gluten Free diets. I had the scallops over Spaghetti Squash and loved it! They also had an ancient grain salad that was incredibly delicious. Excellent Service and a nice atmosphere. We... More

This was an upscale Italian restaurant. The service was very attentive, they had a nice wine list, and the food was excellent. What more could you want?
