We had dinner at Forno's on a Saturday night. The restaurant is very large, with multiple dining rooms, so we were seated within a very short time even though they were very busy. Service was excellent. They bring out a large salad right away, it comes with dinner. Appetizers were excellent and portions quite large. We shared sangria, also very... More

Forno deserves the high ratings it gets for quality of their food, attentive service and their extensive wine list. Copious quantity of food at very reasonable prices. Attended free parking is icing on the cake. I'll be back for certain.

I 've eaten at the old and new Fornos, not the same. The new place is very Attractive with excellent parking facilities. The problem is the cuisine, the quality Is not there, compared to the old restaurant. First , they have too many rooms, which Turns the place into a maze. Second, the menu is over priced compared to other... More

Let me start by saying, I've tried about four restaurants in that area and this by far is the worst of the lot. I only went there because my favorite being ( Spain ) is closed on Mondays, so I said let's give this a try. We were a group of four and as they gave us a table, then... More

When in Newark, visiting the Ironbound district is a must. Though an urban neighborhood, it also has a quaint flavor. Many shops with Portuguese, Spanish, Brazilian products. We've returned numerous times to Forno's of Spain when in Newark. Very professional waiters, varied menu, great foods, abundant portions. Good wine list, too. We'll go there again, for sure.
