We had a wonderful meal here a couple of years ago. The last two times we went unfortunately were there on days it was closed.

We have eaten at Fornelletto several times and always enjoyed the warm, inviting wine cellar atmosphere of the back room, the good service and delicious food, particularly the eggplant parmesan (which should be available as an entree, not just an appetizer) and the veal osso bucco ravioli. This time, we were very disappointed. The wine selection, a glass of Pinot... More

I am a vegetarian and the staff helped make dishes to my taste. The quality of the food and drinks are superior.

Took the wife here for our first dinner on a surprise weekend Valentines getaway. The food was wonderful and the ambiance is pretty cool. You have to go down a few flights of stairs that look like you are going down into a cellar. Perfect lighting where we were seated by their wine cellar.

Missed on all points. Service to meal. Went back this month to Borgata and avoided at all costs, unfortunate to find nothing better there either. 0/3.

Great meal, very tasty, reasonably priced. Our waiters Mario and Saul were outstanding. We had great service, ,which was a pleasant surprise considering it was Valentines Day, and they were sold out.

Absolutely fabulous meal. You must try the veal "osso bucco" ravioli...One of the best pasta dishes I have ever had! The wait staff is also outstanding. Unfortunately, Borgata is closing this restaurant in April because they are opening a Michael Symon restaurant. I think they should reconsider and keep this one open! We will be back at least one more... More

The food is very good; service is outstanding; pricing is appropriate but not overprices; we are never rushed to finish so that they can turn the table over to another customer.
