Fornelletto offers you the best in Italian dining with a large selection of both food and spirits at a moderate price.

This was our second time and it did not disappoint. We love the ambiance as it feels like you are in a beautiful cave surrounded by bottles of wine. All of the food was to die for. For appetizers we got the Mediterranean Octopus and the Brooklyn Brick Oven Pizza. For dinner, I had the "Osso Bucco" ravioli which melted... More

Invited friends to join us for dinner. We asked the server for recommendations from Antipasta to desert ...she did not steer us wrong. We had great appys - four different entrees including Pasta - Fish - Chicken - Veal...one better than the other. We shared the four light and fluffy donuts with a raspberry dip...the perfect ending to a GREAT... More

While the meal was very good, I had higher expectations given the prices. The olive plate appetizer was just okay. The Seafood Spaghettini entree was very good. If you are at the casino and the prices are no big deal to you, it is fine. If you are looking for something special, I would probably try somewhere else.

Cheese board is customizable...pick the amount of cheese and then a side...we chose the prosciutto di parma which is aged for 24 months. It was melt in your mouth delish! The BRANZINO dish was perfect! Fish tender and flaky! Hubby had San Marzano tomato sauce with Beef Meatballs...homemade pasta was yummy!

This beautiful restaurant is located in the Borgata, with a view of their wine cellar. They have an extensive wine list but their menu seems limited. It seemed a little pricey for what it was.

The cheese platter was small and lacking, and the pasta was undercooked. For the price you would have expected a little bit more.

Set in a basement wine cellar, Forneletto predictably boasts a great wine list. Beyond that, the selection of cheeses and Italian specialties is great. The Monkfish Francaise is a sublime, delicate, delicious choice. The mussels are another favorite.

We were provided a very nice table. Our waiter, Giuseppi, came over promptly, and assisted me in selecting gluten free options. We had a wonderful meal, and our waiter was very attentive. Our entire experience, from the time that we walked in, until the time we left was fantastic. This is a wonderful Italian restaurant!

We have always stopped here for small plates at the bar when at the Borgata. This time we decided to have entrees as a full dinner. They were busy and noisy as usual. Love the atmosphere but the food was almost inedible. It took an extraordinarily long time to get the meal. I opted for simple spaghetti and meatballs. It... More
