The food wasn't fresh. The atmosphere was nice.I ordered soup to share with my husband and there was about 3 ounces in a deep. large bowl. I love most restaurants but not this one.

There were 8 of us dining at Fornelletto on a Friday evening, I made a reservation about 3 weeks in advance because the larger tables are harder to come by. We were greeted by our friendly waiter, always there to answer questions but not overbearing. We started by ordering a bottle of Malbec and 2 bottles of Nero d' Avola... More

I must be getting spoiled with Italian food in NYC area. This place was okay, but overpriced. The chocolate creme brulee was a treat though! Short rib ragu was dissapointing. Perhaps they had an off night.

Atmosphere and service were EXCELLENT. The food wasn't your ordinary Italian cuisine. It was different and absolutely delicious! Nice place for date night!

Fornelletto has the romantic ambience with the most impressive wine collection ever! All wine regions and numerous vintages. Their menu selections are all incredible. Recommend the cheese platter assorted by the chef's selection. of course accompanied by wine.

We started with the Polpette (meatballs) appetizer. That was very good. My girlfriend had the Potato Gnocchi, I had the Veal and we shared a side of spinach. The Veal was the largest piece I'd ever seen. We both enjoyed our meals.

This restaurant is not for all kind of people, this is for people who want to flaunt their money by eating less food. i am a food lover who compromises on ambience but cant on the value for money and good food, this place is like an underground wine cellar with great ambience and feels like very upscale. the food...

I've eaten in Italy and married an Italian right off the boat so I know my Italian food. The extra 30 lbs I have on me shows I eat it often so when I went in here I was a little hesitant because I've eaten great authentic Italian food and was a little weary that this wouldn't meet my high... More
