Let me start out by saying that the food wasn't "bad" per se. It just wasn't as good as it could/should have been. The restaurant is below ground, an elevator will bring you there. They were going for the Italian "wine cellar" vibe, which was nice. I started out with the Grilled stuffed squid, which is something I love normally.... More

Recently visited the Borgata Hotel and Casino with my GF. Having dined at some of the other good restaurants here, my GF and I tried Fornelletto, which is an Italian restaurant. We entered the restaurant around 6:45 without a reservation and chose to sit at the bar. The service was good as was the food. I enjoyed the veal francaise... More

Since I am primarily a fish eater, I ordered the Bronzino. In most cases, the chef uses this entrée as a way of displaying their skills and originality, since it can be served so many ways. In almost all cases, it is served as a whole wish and or it is filet tableside. This was not the case here. I... More

Usually we eat at Bobby Flays but I wanted something different. Really enjoyed this place. The menu wasn't huge but what they had was unique and they also accommodated Gluten Free diets. I had the scallops over Spaghetti Squash and loved it! They also had an ancient grain salad that was incredibly delicious. Excellent Service and a nice atmosphere. We... More

This was an upscale Italian restaurant. The service was very attentive, they had a nice wine list, and the food was excellent. What more could you want?

Although it does not get the hype of Cafe 2825 and Chef Vola, Fornelletto is one of the best Italian restaurants in AC. I suppose the basement location does not attract folks that have not been there, but once you enter you will love the space Fornelletto is one of my favorite dining spots. It has been consistently outstanding in... More

Went with a party of 6 on Thursday night for Restaurant Week. 5 of the 6 had the pre-fixe menu and all were very pleased. The Osso Bucco Ravioli is to die for. Atmosphere is very nice and we will most certainly be back.

Watch your budget the prices can ad up fast in this restaurant. We spent well over $100 per person. The food quality was good, and very rich.
