One of the best pizza joints in Brooklyn. Great outdoor seating in the back yard. Menu is nicely split over '1st', '2nd' and '3rd generation' pizzas. Great value for money too.

Had one night in Brooklyn during a work trip and pizza was at the top of our list. The options were great. The table for four split a bottle of wine. We all killed two slices and still took home leftovers from our two pies. Not great....staff waiting until after we ordered and ate to tell us their card reader... More

Goodness it was hot. We were tired and a bit past caring where we ate. We fancied pizza and Fornino showed promise but the decider was going to be air conditioning. Not only air conditioning but ice cold water on the table. The waitress was welcoming without being overwhelming. We opted for calzone and one of us had a traditional... More

Well it was reccomended by a local. And are we ever glad we stopped in here. The pizza was just superb. Nice thin crispy crust with chewy edges, not too much sauce, and wonderful fresh mozza and basil. The service was excellent as well. You gotta eat here!

We visited the Brooklyn Bridge Park location and sat on the rooftop. It was such a fantastic atmosphere, watching the sunset and then the lights come on. The pizza was delicious - we tried a pepperoni-based one and an eggplant one. Both were delicious. There were 4 of us and we split two pizzas and a salad. It was plenty... More

found this by accident but its certainly a great find, really good and very different toppings...my only small gripe is there is no wifi (yes i know I'm supposed to be there to eat), service was good and a great choice

Alright so, I like 99 cent pizza from a standing room only corner joint as much as the next New Yorker... but sometimes you just need a little more class. Super close to the subway, Fornino is a bite of mouthwatering crust, savory cheeses and some unconventional toppings. My current favorite?: Potato, fennel sausage and red pepper pizza - out... More

I used Fornino to cater my Superbowl party. VERY timely delivery & amazingly delicious food. I will be using them again next year...and have already eaten there in between. Seriously good pizza...some of the best in NYC.

Fresh mozzarella and basil, delicious sauce and crisp tasty dough. Were surprised the place wasn't packed on a Sunday lunch. Great service. Definitely coming back.!

I've lived all over New York and Brooklyn for the past 10 years, and NEVER have I found pizza as good as Fornino. I highly recommend the Lombardi pizza if you get the chance!
