“Really Delicous!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

I was at a dinner with 16 others. There were many different orders for both meat & seafood entrees. Everything came out together & judging by my own food (and the quiet that descended on a table of 16 women), cooked to perfection. Everything was fresh & tasty. I can almost always finish my food but at Fornos I took home about half. I've eaten at a few Spanish/Portugese restaurants in the Iron Bound. This is by far the very best. It is not cheap but....worth it!

“incredible portuguese restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

I have eaten at many Spanish or Portuguese restaurants. Some might be a little cheaper but definitely not better. The portions are enormous and so delicious. The sea bass is to die for. The sangria is great. The service is superb.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

Forno's of Spain is my personal favorite of all the Portuguese/Spanish/Brazilian restaurants in the Down Neck area of Newark. The service is impeccable, and the food portions are large, and cooked to perfection.
