We arrived about 5 minutes prior to our reservation time. The place was packed, no hostess, no greeting from anyone, everyone walking in looked lost just waiting by the door. The servers were walking around seemingly flustered and overwhelmed. I basically approached one of the servers and asked how do we get seated? She told us that we’ll be seated shortly since we had a reservation. About 15 minutes later we were seated, our server was attentive, food was great. I hope that they get a host soon, feeling ignored when you walk in is not good for business.

Greatly enjoy this unassuming spot on Harlem. The woodfired pizza is delicious and a pretty good value for two people to split with appetizer and-or dessert. The paninis with rosemary parmesan fries are also a great bargain. We have ordered the tiramisu at each visit with no regrets! Looking forward to visiting in thr spring to sit on the nicely lit patio.

Lots of different pizzas to choose from in various different flavor profiles. Nice drink list with wine and beer and a full bar. Plenty of appetizers to choose from hot and cold. And don’t forget about dessert the Bomba is the bomb!

Really the pizza here is outstanding, so come hungry. My favorite is the red diavolo, with spicy salami and hot oil. The salads are good as well. The service is a bit brusque, and an easy smile would go a long way. They are very busy in general so make a res if you can.

Love Forno Rosso’s pizza — superb dough, fresh toppings, great choices. Also, try one of the great salads — big enough for sharing. Highly recommend!

Always greeted with a smile. Either the owner or manager makes sure he comes to the tables to see if everything is ok. Salads, pizzas and the gnocchi are wonderful. Small but decent wine and beer list. The rose is my favorite. Rounding out the dinner, the cappuccinos and deserts are great too. Highly recommend. Side note, if you do not eat pork products, they do have some other pizza options. My favorite is the margharita pizza and the delicious gnocchi.

Really a hidden gem, great pizza, salads and a decent and manageable wine list. The restaurant had a feeling of being a half beat off from its usual precision. Food was great.

Forno Rosso is a gem. The food is authentic, original and outstanding. The staff is attentive without being over bearing and very very friendly. My wife and I frequent Forno Rosso so we took out of town family there and they just loved it. So much so we went twice.

The pies are great, but if you come at a busy time, they may not be cooked to perfection, or else may be allowed to cool a bit, and the cheese congeals. Service is attentive and lots of beer choices to go along with lots of pizza choices.

We went to Forno Rosso Saturday night for the first time. We will be back. it is a certified Neapolitan pizzeria, and few other places are. We had the simple Margherita pizza and it was perfect. The pear, walnut and Gorgonzola salad was amazing. The carbonara pizza was also terrific though we expected white sauce, not red. The manager sensed we were first timers and chatted with us at our table.And he sent to our table complimentary cannolis
