At first this restaurant come off as a bit pricey! When you see the loads of food they bring you it is well worth it. I took friends from England and they had the best time.

I'm going to unleash my review on you.: The food is GIANT and the wines are STELLAR. So please do not think that it is all about volume because the volume is coupled with QUALITY. And then there is the service. Ask for what you want, the way you want it, additions, subtraction- Forno wants to please. It's Spanish but... More

My father in law took us here tonight and it didn't disappoint. The meal started with family style salad and bread which both were delicious. I had the seafood stew and it was amazing. It was filled with seafood in a tomato broth and extremely filling. For dessert, I had a lemon sorbet that was served inside a lemon. One... More

The food is delicious. The service outstanding. The waiters are very knowledgeable and attentive. They have an extensive wine list. From appetizer to dinner, there is something for everyone. The baked mushrooms, the spanish sausage and salad were very good. I enjoyed the Paella de pollo and Pollo Ajillo, which was a nice garlic, Lemon and white wine sauce. Tiramisu... More

I love good service and For now has it; the staff is very attentive and always there if needed. Food is delicious and portions are big, you won't be able to finish it.
