Fathers Day @ Il Fornetto was very nicely done. Food was exceptional, as always. Service as well was very well performed. Only issues we had was the additional dessert we ordered never showed up, Salmon was a bit dry (which has never been the case in the past) and a 15 minute wait for cappuccinos seemed excessive.
Booked place hoping to have brunch which was shown on the website...got to the restaurant they did not have it...limited food menu for Father’s Day...items on the website didn’t not exist on the menu at the restaurant.
Very nice restuarant. Food was very good. Had fun in the bar later with the band.
The view is beautiful. There are way better options for Italian food in Brooklyn.
service is very bad, the waiter did not say "please" and "thank you" at all.
Great food and nice view of Sheepshead Bay. Valet parking was a nice touch
The waiter was awesome and the food was absolutely amazing
I normally love this restaurant but the mothers day limited menu was terrible
We went to Il Fornetto for Mother’s Day. The server was rushed and would pull the menus like he was under pressure to handle a lot of tables. The menu was pretty short. The fish was good but the steak was like it was boiled.
This could be a mother’s day problem. At other times they also have pizza and pasta.
I took my mother there for mother’s day, I was very impressed with the restaurant appearance and cleanliness. The service was great and the food taste very good.
The waiter was a bit weird but overall I loved it. I took my parents there & they loved it as well. The place is a bit bland but it’s still nice.
Saturday night family birhtday/Mother's Day celebration. We were a party of 9 with reservations. We arrived on time and were promptly led to our table. Our Server, Osman was very attentive. We ordered appetizers including raw clams and oysters. Eveything was very fresh and well seasoned. Everyone ordered a main course and no complaints from anyone at the table...including the Italian Grandmas! We sat in the dining room overlooking the Bay which made for a relaxing atmosphere. Thank you Il Fornetto for making this an enjoyable family gathering. We look forward to returning soon!
We had an amazing server and was very attentive. The food was good
Food was delicious. Service was excellent. Our server, Vito, was attentive, friendly, and even spoke Spanish for my older parents. Thanks Vito!
Awesome food and service. Our waiter Osman was a delight. Will for sure come back.
We’ve been coming to Il Fornetto for years and we’re never disappointed. The food is great and we like the atmosphere with the view of the bay. Also family friendly, the kids love looking at all the birds swimming in the water. We’ll continue to come back.
Il Fornetto is one of mine and my family's favorites restaurants. There was an unexpected wait for our table, and for our appetizer - like I said, very unusual. Our staff was friendly and attentive, and the food was fresh and hot. The 70's music in the front gave the place a fun vibe when entering and leaving, although we could not hear the festivities from the back (happily!) All in all, another successful dinner at Il Fornetto!
I had a 7pm reservation for 15 people and we were not seated until almost 8pm
Fiid and service was excellent. Beautiful and quaint place.
Good, "older school" Brooklyn style full service restaurant. Really good seafood, good cocktail choices, and a waterside view. Place is usually very busy on weekends so it's not a quiet place.
Great service and great views
Il Fornetto is a lovely, not too formal Italian with a romantic water view. The food was delicious...the pasta was notably cooked to the perfect level of 'al dente'. My only complaint was the too-small size of the branzino and seabass entrees, which led me to order more food to leave satisfied.
The food portions were too small and the waiter took too long
I was expecting a more upscale romantic restaurant. Instead it was loud, family & large group type
The food was good as was service but would not go there again
Wonderful! Our waiter was great and very attentive. Food was delicious.
They forgot part of my order and ran out of something I wanted to order.
We have gone to Il Fornetto several times in the past and always had a great experience. The food is excellent and the service is good. Great place to eat!
Food and place were very nice....wait service was a little unfriendly, seemed annoyed he had to work that night. Won’t hold it against the place it was very good
Recommended by a friend. It was totally worth it. Kudos to Bella for outstanding service. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
Great service. Always classy and professional. The food is amazing. Second only to a trip to Italy itself. Top Notch. It has been a favorite for years.
It was great, the food was amazing!
Excellent chicken parmigiana and wonderful service. Nice to sit by the water
Enjoyed a delightful Sunday dinner here. From beginning to end the atmosphere, service, and food were outstanding. I highly recommend the Seafood Salad. It was the best I have ever had and I've tried many!!! In addition, the Flounder (fish of the day) was delicious and a nice size portion.
The personable service of Vito was an added bonus. We'll be back again for sure.
Spectacular service! Beautiful view! Delicious food!
Fresh delicious seafood, large portions, couples can share.
Highly recommend the Caprino salad, the Burrata, the Mussels, and the Branzino.
Try to get a window table and watch the swans.
We went for NYE dinner. We got a number of different appetizers, a bottle of wine, and a few main dishes. I had the calamari for the appetizer which was yummy, and interestingly served with marinara sauce. For the main I had the linguini with truffles, which were nice but very heavy. The rest of my party was happy with their food but no one was blown away by anything that we ordered. You do get decently large portions, and the food is similar to other Italian-American restaurants.
The tiramisu was amazing! The service was awesome and food was delicious. We'll be back for sure.
We were a party of 6 and seated near a wonderful view of Sheepshead Bay. The waiter was great and so was the food. It wasn’t too noisy giving us an opportunity to speak to each other without yelling.
The Service was Amazing. The Food was delicious.
The food was just AWESOME!!! True Italian cuisine!
