Excellent pizza, perfect service

Hadn't had pizza in a while, and I'm glad I waited to find the right spot. Excellent pizza, thin crust etc..the service was awesome with a smile, and it's very correctly priced. Highly recommend, I will go ahead!

Fornino is a very cool pizza place in center of trending Brooklyn (Bedford av.). Wide selection of pizza's, some classics but also own creative (and tasty) creations.

Again, another deceptively great restaurant in Greenpoint on Manhattan avenue. Great service, attentive. Not too intrusive. Happy to make amends to our order. Pizza was lovely. Very thin crust but very yum! calzone was excellent. Lots of choice in the menu too for pizzas! You will find something you like! Comfy seats! Great ambience. Awesome music. What more could you...

We loved the Al Roker and Monzese pizzas during our visit. Our 9 year old liked the meatballs, though her options were limited (cheese pizza or meatballs). Our waitstaff did a great job-constant refills and very friendly and patient. We would definitely come back here if we lived in the area.

Being a Gluten-free Glutton you'd think a pizza joint is not for you. But Fornino has a couple of very nice gluten-free options on their menu which are very nice - particularly their meatballs in tomato sauce, and their salads. Both offer wonderful flavours and in the case of the salads zingy super-fresh leaves in interesting combinations. The Pal thinks... More

My wife and I popped into this place and we were not disapointed. We were seated quickly and the staff were really friendly and helpful. We ordered a salad, which was really tasty and the pizza's that we ordered were delicious. The restaraunt was pretty busy with other diners and there were a lot of delivery guys popping in to...

We stumbled in here - a group of 12 people - directly from the Bedford Ave station, and were really positively surprised by this place. Great and cozy atmosphere, really friendly waiter and fantastic pizzas: crisp, very authentic Italian and with the perfect amount of toppings (meaning few ingredients and not too much of it). I wanted Mascarpone (Italian soft... More

After moving my son into his new Williamsburg apartment we took a walk in search of food. It was our privilege to happen upon this place. The main dining room is long and narrow, leading to a pleasant patio in the rear. Not only are the pizzas exquisite, but one can customize antipasto items served in individual plates on a... More
