My wife and I ate here the night before Thanksgiving and the food was fantastic. Better than I remember it. Split an octopus app that was great, split the osso bucco ravioli, which were perfect in every way. My seafood pasta had a generous amount of seafood perfectly cooked and very flavorful. My wife had the Veal Milanese, which was... More

We had dinner at Fornelletto during the week. A reservation was a must. I thought they had few menu selections. Our food (filets) were perfectly cooked and delicious. The noise level was high even though we sat at a corner table near wine room. Service was good but a bit rushed. I would definitely recommend and return.

Went there for a 6pm reservation. Was very attentive for the first 20 minutes and then disappeared. Gave misinformation about what ingredients were in an appetizer - I said anything but olives and there were olives (good thing I wasn't allergic). The mussels were so gritty they were inedible and the drinks took 1/2 hour to get. The chicken parm... More

You can't beat going on a Wednesday to take advantage of the bar/lounge specials. Small plates are perfect for sharing. Chicken liver, chopped salad, Margharita Pizza were delicious! Beer and cocktails were also priced well and tasty! This is a must every time we come to the Borgata!

We ate at this restaurant on the last night of our stay. We felt the menu of Italian food was wide ranging and offered excellent choices. Our appetizers of cheeses were excellent and we were aided in the selection by a very knowlegable waiter who was also extremely attentive. The meals we choose were excellent especially the scallops. The setting... More

Mozzarella tomato appetizer and a chicken entree. Good but not great, nothing particularly memorable except for the decor/atmosphere which is nice and you can't really go wrong with that in Borgata.

My family and I made a reservation for dinner to celebrate my birthday. We were somewhat disappointed. The menu was not what I expected and limited. The pasta choices were not at all what I expected. My husband had a great appetizer of an eggplant dish which was fabulous-it could have been an entre! His veal masala was a disappointment-some... More

The menu consists of a wide range of Italian specialty foods. The salads were great and the entrees exceeded our expectations. The service was very good and the waiters were exceptionally attentive.
