Went to Fornino with my family and we had a great meal. The staff was very friendly especially our waiter Cory who was a nice touch to a very nice meal. Hope to return when we're in the area again.

Lunch special with Caesar salad was delicious and very reasonable. Margherita pizza and fungi pizza were both fantastic!

This is my favorite pizza place in Brooklyn, hands down. Friendly waiters and the yummiest thin-crust pizza. My favorites are the mushroom w/ truffle oil or fresh spinach with pinenuts. Can't go wrong with their basic margherita classica, either. It's perfect. I pray they never move away.

It's always nice to go there, Pizzas are great, staff is nice and prices are okay. Just bring time as there's often a line for dinner.

I dream of this pizza----- the space is small and you are kind of crammed against neighboring tables but the pizza is worth it. The Al Roker and the Pugilese are top favorites.

What a gem. My husband & I fell in love with this remarkable pizza joint over their mushroom pizza with slices of truffle and truffle oil drizzle. Amazing!!!

One of the best pizza places I've been to in New York. The prices are good and the service is great. I just didn't have luck with the Sangria, which none of my friends liked either. But I would definitely go back for the pizza.
