Good was excellent - waiter
Good was excellent - waiter was excellent but overall staff/service was poor. In fact, the staff mentioned to us several times that they are understaffed and to expect delays...

Fast seating. Waitress very
Fast seating. Waitress very friendly and knowledgeable about menu. Apps excellent. Drinks good. Main course (veal) was quite chewy and tough but had good flavor otherwise. Side dish of veggies was quite small. A nice night out overall.

Good first experience
We've been Sparta residents for 20 years and have seen restaurants come and go. Our first visit to Forno Italiano was a very pleasant surpise. The food was excellent; the Sunday Gravy was delicious and they make a great Old Fashioned. The atmosphere was a bit cold and sparse, the decor seems left over from Docs Steakhouse. We will be regular customers if the food and service continues to be as good as this first experience.

My husband and I were there
My husband and I were there with another couple. We were all more than satisfied with our entrees. Our server was excellent, patient, helpful and responsive to our requests.
We will definitely recommend Forno's to our friends.

Excellent food every time
Excellent food every time my friends and I have eaten there. I will definitely return. Seems to be a favorite since it hasn't been open long and has been crowded every time I have been there. Sometimes a little noisy but still a favorite in town.

Great service, wonderful food,
Great service, wonderful food, extensive wine list, great , delicious main course and desserts. Very friendly and helpful staff. Food is not your usual run of the mill menu. I would rate this restaurant as one that could compete with the best restaurants in Manhattan. Care was given in both presentation and wonderful use of a variety of vegetables and spices. I loved the roasted vegetables that came with my tuna steak. Everyone at the table thoroughly enjoyed their meal.

6 of us and a toddler dined outside of the patio. The waterfall was so relaxing. From my vantage point I felt as though I was in the forest. Food was wonderful. We all tasted each others. Usually don't do dessert, but felt compelled to try them all. Equally great, one was better than the last. Would go back in a heartbeat!

Great experience as always
Been here three times and never disappointed. A new chef and a new menu. Sad to see some items gone but the menu does not disappoint. Seafood, steaks, chicken, duck, and specials span all types, plus pasta dishes, appetizers, desserts, etc. I've had fish there, steak, and duck, and all have been fantastic. Appetizers (baby octopus, fried clams) are great too, and desserts are out of this world. This place has a nice wine list but you can BYOB too. And the bar (set off from the dining room) is a nice way to start the night (many different types of martinis). This place is quiet, yet family friendly, and furring the summer there is outdoor dining on the patio with a band on Fridays. Forno Italiano is a gem!

A great Reincarnation
Good ambiance, quiet and conducive to conversation, wonderful service, good food, reasonable portion sizes (neither gargantuan nor miniscule), nice wine list and quite affordable. When it is time to order, you don't feel "I don't need to see the menu" in this Italian restaurant. It is somewhat different and a nice change of pace. The kitchen is quite flexible with its offerings and your desired changes. Will definitely go again.

My husband and I had dined there once before but for a late lunch early dinner. Decided to go back with another couple on Saturday night and had an excellent dining experience. I would have to give the food a 5 star and the service from our waitress Patty was flawless. Definately will be going back again.
