Wood-fired goodness. Strange service.

A group of 6 went for lunch attracted by the $12 salad and pizza deal. The servings are generous such that we shared the pizza/salad amongst 2 people and no one left hungry. The ingredients are simple and fresh, the crust is thin and crispy and the flavors are very good. Service is a bit strange... read more

Delicious pizza, the base was just the right combination of crispy and soft and the Spinach pizza toppings complimented each other beautifully. The dessert of a brownie cake was more than enough for two of us to share - extremely rich but a generous way to finish off the meal!

The Greenpoint one is close to home so we love to go there and the Brooklyn Bridge Park location is just beaufiul, perfect on a summer... More

Avoid the truffle, artificial truffle oil is disgusting, we didnt like it at all. The eggolant topping was greasy. Not a good pizza.

Our party of 5 went here for dinner. None of us were disappointed. We ordered salad and three different types of Pizza. All of the wood fire grilled Pizzas were excellent. Our service was tip top from our guy who said he had moved here from Austin, TX. Desserts were good as well. The place is very quaint and had... More

Similar to some other users reported experience: was charged twice for lunch on card, when I called staff said "Oh that happens all the time but we've refunded both charges/comped your meal." Brand new card (only used at three businesses) info immediately used at Macy's midtown. Bank identified Fornino's Bedford as likely culprit and disputed their explanation as highly suspect.... More

I am from Italy and if I had Fornino in my hometown that's where I would go. All the times. Have ordered their spinach pizza for the last 4 years.

My wife and I were in mood for pizza. We found Fornino on our phone and decided to head in. We walked from the Brooklyn Brewery, which is not even a 10 minute walk. The pizza is wood fired and authentic. It reminded us of the pizza we had in Rome a few years back. The crust was thin and... More

Awesome wooden fire pizza. The spinach and goat cheese one was superb. Good price for the quality, good service. Tables too small but the place is not huge. If you go to NY, you can't miss it!

My parents, husband, brother, and I went here for lunch yesterday. All agreed that the pizza is absolutely amazing. We had the spinach/soppressata and the funghi misti. Both were delicious. We did all think that the mushroom one would have been better with a little arugula or something on top to lighten/ add some brightness to the very earthy, rich... More
