After a few beers at the nearby Brooklyn Brewery's tasting room we were in the mood for pizza so headed to Fornino. It was around 8pm on a Friday evening so we were surprised to find the place virtually empty. The staff actually outnumbered the customers at one point. I really thought it would be a little more popular given... More

We are here once and then kids could not get enough of the pizza. They had one every night of our stay in Brooklyn. Outstanding and authentic in every way!

Great brick oven pizza place with three Brooklyn locations: Williamsburg, Brooklyn Bridge Park and Greenpoint. They don't know how to make a bad pizza, but one of my favorites is the "Melanzane", which consists of tomato, ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan, eggplant and basil. Recently had a seasonal pizza, which was out of this world: buffalo mozzarella, prosciutto and fresh fig. The... More

While on a pizza tour in Brooklyn, our second pizza stop was Fornino. Never before have I tasted such a perfect slice of pizza. The atmosphere was nice, service was fast, and obviously the food was excellent.

Found this little treasure after being told we needed to wait an hour+ for Paulie Gee's. What a great find?!! We ordered the Marghertia and the Fungi Misti with truffle oil. Both pies were phenomenal and amongst the best in the city. We are planning on going back. They have few locations so if you want good pizza but don't... More

The boys ate Cheerios but the adults shared a salad, an eggplant appetizer that was similar to an eggplant parm. And a good sized pizza.... More

We happened upon Fornino when we were caught in the rain and looking for something to eat, and were so happy to find that the food was delicious! It's easily the best pizza I ate while visiting NY. The sourdough (?) base was thin and just crispy enough, the tomato sauce was rich and flavoursome and the mozzarella was authentic.... More

Fornino is a very cool pizza place in center of trending Brooklyn (Bedford av.). Wide selection of pizza's, some classics but also own creative (and tasty) creations.
