If you haven't been to Forno's then you haven't been to Newark, NJ! This place captures the reason why All good food on the east coast starts in Newark, from the smell of freshly backed hot bread at your table to the amazing aroma of filet mignon over a hot flame!

Dream no more, take a trip to Forno's of Spain Restaurant on Ferry Street in Newark within three minutes walk from Penn Station. (You can also drive there because they have a large parking lot).

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. Appetizers were delicious and timely. When those were cleared, our entrees arrived. Service was very attentive, with regard to our meal, as well as... More

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). After you receive a sumptuous portion of what your order, you... More

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

This place is great! I have been several times but am just now writing a review. They start you with garlic bread and rolls, with butter and olive oil to use, salad plus a serving of olives. For appetizers we had cod empanadas very tasty and I believe 6 of them. We also had the stuffed mushrooms, a little bland... More
