Don't eat lunch beforehand if you go to Forno's for dinner! Enormous and great tasting portions of wonderful Spanish food. Seafood appetizers like shrimp @ garlic could be a meal by them selves as hand sliced and deep fat fried "potato chips" plus massive portions of fried rice are included along with really good baked bread. Double cut GIANT pork... More

Forno’s has been our “go to” place for great Portuguese food in the Ironbound. This restaurant is stylish and never disappoints (well, almost never). We decided to treat our son and his apartment mate to dinner since we were passing close by. It was Sunday and the parking lot was starting to fill up. They accommodated us with a nice... More

At first this restaurant come off as a bit pricey! When you see the loads of food they bring you it is well worth it. I took friends from England and they had the best time.

I'm going to unleash my review on you.: The food is GIANT and the wines are STELLAR. So please do not think that it is all about volume because the volume is coupled with QUALITY.

My father in law took us here tonight and it didn't disappoint. The meal started with family style salad and bread which both were delicious. I had the seafood stew and it was amazing. It was filled with seafood in a tomato broth and extremely filling. For dessert, I had a lemon sorbet that was served inside a lemon. One... More
