Common to the Spanish and Portuguese in Newark, servings are very large, as are cocktails. Meal starts with a large salad placed in the middle of the table for all to share. Large choice of items on the menu. Servers are very talkative. Key time frame for customers is early evening; noise level is high but quiets down as people... More

The Ironbound section of Newark, NJ, still remains the best place to get Spanish or Portuguese food!. Forno's of Spain was a wonderful treat on our Newark memory lane trip. There was an ABUNDANCE of food which accompanied our orders of paella and chicken. The service was outstanding as was the dining room. Will definitely return! Gracias!

Came here with my wife before seeing Sebastian Maniscalco at NJPAC and the meal was outstanding!! The salad and bread given at the beginning of the meal were tasty. Extensive menu, some things a little on the pricey side but totally worth it! I got the Paella con Gambas and it was out of this world, and too big for... More

This is a higher end restaurant with wonderful food and service. Just a 5 min train ride from our hotel and nestled in what is considered the neighborhood of " Spain". A great experience! We were given a post card to return back when we got home to Wisconsin so that they can begin a new tradition there.

My husband and I went for lunch on a Monday. We were seated right away, service was great, the ambiance was calm and quiet. Really an old school type of place, with at least 4 different male servers attending to us for delivering bread, taking the order, picking up plates, water, and so forth. Salad is included and served right... More

Don't eat lunch beforehand if you go to Forno's for dinner! Enormous and great tasting portions of wonderful Spanish food. Seafood appetizers like shrimp @ garlic could be a meal by them selves as hand sliced and deep fat fried "potato chips" plus massive portions of fried rice are included along with really good baked bread.

Forno’s has been our “go to” place for great Portuguese food in the Ironbound. This restaurant is stylish and never disappoints (well, almost never). We decided to treat our son and his apartment mate to dinner since we were passing close by. It was Sunday and the parking lot was starting to fill up. They accommodated us with a nice... More
