Wonderful evening! Great staff, especially Cheryl. She offered great recommendations, took into our attempt at eating healthy, and was very accommodating. Food was delicious, grilled calamari, arugula salad with strawberries with champagne vinaigrette, butterflied pork, rapini and fagioli, tiramisu traditional with a twist.

The wine list and food were quite quality were quite average at best. The atmosphere felt very old fashioned...and not the good kind. There are much better Italian restaurants out there that have better quality food for the price. Disappointed.

My husband and I recently moved to the area and we had a wonderful dinner here. Our server was amazing and even took time to chat with us. Great food and service!!

We were unexpectedly surprised by the quality of the food. We didn't meet the chef but the menu and presentation were delicious.
Kudos Chef !
Service was impeccable, charming and attentive.
As a frequent diner in many fine restaurants I would say Fornello's will easily become a favorite.

The food was great. Even greater was the service. Our server, Ryan was funny, personable and very knowledgeable. I will go back to have another meal there -- and I will call and find out ahead of time if he's working and will ask to have him as a server. Great night all around.

Made a 6 30 reservation and was seated by a very harried host in a full restaurant. We waited 15 minutes before a server appeared.
We ordered drinks and waited to order. We had to ask twice to get the server back to order. 35 minutes
after being seated we ordered and waited and waited. We were told by
hosts that they were very very busy.
They appeared to be short staffed.
Our meal hadn't arrived by 7 35 and we were told it would be another 10 minutes. We had 8 00 theatre tickets 5 blocks away We left
and we weren't the only ones.
We ended up eating after the play
at another restaurant in the area
where we were served timely.
A true dining disaster

Best pasta vodka & grilled calamari we have ever had. Been there 3 times in 3 weeks now. Live music was great and the staff was very nice and helpful with their recommendations.
