Enjoyed the variety of gelato served here. The consistency was perfect-creamy and thick. After stopping in several times for gelato, I decided to try their pizza. There are many different types of pizza available. I had the spinach pie (personal size). I found the pizza...More

This is a great place to enjoy brick oven pizza with enough varieties that you may not be able to choose. My suggestion: start at the top and continue through the list each time because you’re gonna want to try it again and again. And...More

There several Fornace locations, including in shopping malls. They offer 2 for 1 pizzas daily, which is a steal of a deal! The menu is quite extensive, and good. They also have delicious gelato. They also have excellent coffee! They will do takeout also.

Wanted a light meal close to our hotel. After we were seated in the small narrow restaurant that looks like an ice cream shop, the waiter came to take our order. When we started speaking English, he went to get another waiter who spoke English....More
