The pizza was pretty good and the bruschetta had a lot of chopped tomatoes on it but overall it was a bit over-priced for what we had. Decent, but I can't say I'd make a point to go back nor refer anyone there.

Can’t even review the service since they left us outside for almost 2hours. Never checked in with us, just kept saying they were waiting for a table. People went in, same people came out with leftovers. I wouldn’t bother.

It's amazing how a wood fired oven can make a restaurant stand tall amongst the others. I tried this spot for the first time and was hugely impressed. I have eaten bushels of wings over the years and thought I had tasted them all. Well...More

I visited Forno Bello with some co-workers for lunch today and tried the Burrata Pizza. The crisp thin crust pizza was lightly smoky and topped with creamy burrata cheese, juicy grape tomatoes, meaty prosciutto, and flavorful basil. Overall this was a good quality pizza.
