We wanted to try Fornos because it's gotten some great reviews. Everyone enjoyed their meals and the food was very good, but it didn't quite live up to the hype so it gets a 4. But if you're looking for quantity, you have found heaven. We're a family of eaters, but every entree we ordered provided THREE meals! We ate... More

We decided to end our trip with a visit to Fornos and what a treat it was. The minute we sat down a huge plate of salad, olives and warm breads arrived at our table. I ordered a dirty martini while I looked at the menu and it came in a wonderful twisted glass and as it didn't all fit... More

We loved the early arrival of salad, bread, and olives as soon as we were seated. Nice touch for hungry people. Next up, drinks, a member of our party had the best martini of his life.

Enjoyed a nice meal with coworkers while in town for business. Impressed with a wide selection of delicious food options served as generous portions. The prices are reasonable, but not recommended for travelers on a budget. If you're looking for great food with a little extra money to spend, you will not be disappointed.

What a wonderful lunch experience at this beautiful restaurant in the Ironbound section of Newark, NJ. A throwback to how dining should be! Table clothes, flowers, unbelievably good bread and olive oil and olives. While you're waiting for your meal, here comes the wonderful salad (that's on the house).

What a stellar meal. We started with 2 appetizers: Spanish sausage; and Octopus. A good choice for 4-people. Both were great. We followed with 2 different paella dishes, bronzini, and soft-shelled crabs. All were absolutely excellent. A very extensive wine list made the choice difficult.

What a stellar review -- thank you! You and your party sound like our kind of people -- it's always better to order different dishes to get a taste of everything. (The broiled Spanish sausage is one of my favorites as well.) I hope to see you all again soon for some more paella and wine! Best, Andres, Manager More
