Service was really great. Food was awesome. There was a party in their other room but the dining area was not affected by it. The
Birthday Dinner. View was spectacular
The food was absolutely amazing, my waiter, Jose, was polite, fast with the food and drinks and very professional. He made my dining experience outstanding and because of his service, I definitely will be dining here again.
Food is quite good for the price. However we waited around half an hour after appetizers for the main dishes to come. Was told there was a mistake but never mind. Overall a good dining experience.
Went there for Valentine's Day. Was a bit busy but overall a great experience. The waiter didn't serve us bread right away, until one of the other waiters noticed and brought it for us. Food was delicious. Would recommend for a date night.
It’s just a serene view and a great place for couples of all ages as well as for families. The staff were also excellent with their service and the food is priced fairly. Would definitely visit again.
Amazing food and excellent service
It was Valentines Day so I expected it to be busy. My issue is the fact that management should’ve expected it to be busy and two, maybe three waiters was always going to be insufficient.
Dinner was overcooked and dry.
When the waiter did pass by he was perfectly professional and did take care of us well. Passing by only twice was an issue. The appetizer and drinks cause me to believe that it will be worth eating here again.
Mediocre food, mediocre service, and so so ambiance. Will not be going back - rather cook at home
We enjoyed our date night at II Fornetto. The sauces for our dishes were amazing and very tasty. The waitress was considerate of our requests and came to our table at good lengths of time to check in.
We were seated right away. Great food and great service.
The place was nice A little cold inside the view was nice it’s a place where during the day and spring or summer months would be a nice place to go. My favorite fish was the calamari it was Amazing. The food was good not great for the price but it was just good not spectacular or something to brag about. The service was great but it should be it was only my family and one other table there in an empty room at 5pm and even after the was only 3 other couples came so the place was very empty so service was expected to be spectacular. However the staff was very friendly and our waiter was the best took his time to explain and was very attentive to us.
Overall I would recommend this place
The food was excellent!
Mediocre food with good service and a high price. Not a great experience.
Always happy with the food, drinks and service here. My friend and I both had the St Peter's fish and it was excellent.
Excellent food, nice servers. A couple of mistakes w orders and tab that were all explained. Offers valet parking
Excellent service! Great food! Beautiful view!
Food is ok. Salads were good, but my dish could have been hotter. Limited wine list.
We were enjoying our meal at your restaurant until the DJ in the room next door (wedding taking place) turned up the music and we couldn't hear ourselves speak. We had been seated right near the adjoining wall and the vibrations from the music were felt and the volume was awful. We wish that the management, knowing that there was a wedding in that room, would have seated us further into the restaurant. When we arrived there were many tables available and we had a reservation. Luckily we were finishing our meal when the music began to disturb us but it did ruin part of our meal.
Otherwise, the wait staff was very accommodating.
Love the ambience and the view of the marina. The staff was very kind and attentive, truly on point. Great place. Cant wait to go back.
We had a nice leisurely lunch with pleasant, attentive service. Prices were reasonable and the view of the bay was perfect.
The Truffle pasta dish and tiramisu are amazing! I would come back just for those dishes. The burrata appetizer was another highlight.
Great restaurant with wonderful views a nice ambience and great service. Of course the food was fabulous
We went on my husband’s birthday, and I specifically wrote a note that If they could please sit us by the water view.
When we entered the lady just asked for my name and didn’t even acknowledge what I had asked for. Compared to the pictures the place isn’t so nice, but the food wasn’t so bad.
It was very very crowded and ready very loud they space the tables too close together in a small space those clothes being right next to the water was nice the waiter was nice the food was not good and expensive
It's a pity that they don't take advantage of the location; it's right by the water but the restaurant has such strong LED ceiling headlights that don't even let you see the water. Not romantic at all. They should just keep the Art Deco round lanterns and get rid of the ones in the ceiling to make the place more appealing
Took a friend for their birthday and there was great service and food with romantic/great ambience!
Got here at 2:15 pm, place almost empty and service was horrible. Took the waiter 20 mins to bring drinks, we asked for a high chair and they never brought it so we went to get it, bread was never offered until we asked for it, we ran out of drinks and guy never cared. Just the worst place to eat. If there was a zero start I would give it to them.
Some of the best Italian food I have ever had - a must try -
I wanted a very scenic place with great food and excellent service as my long time friend was coming in to visit from Connecticut. She also wanted a fresh seafood option. Il Fornetto totally fits the bill! We had the fish of the day and a salad. Shared both and portion size was adequate. The fish came garnished with two large wedges of roasted potatoes which were excellent. The arugula salad was fresh and full of pistachios, goat cheese and perfectly dressed. I would definitely come back with company again!
I would have been satisfied with my visit but what honestly left a bad taste in my mouth was the simple fact I made a birthday reservation for my girlfriend and her friends for 630 when her friends arrive first they were told a table wasn’t available which of course messes up the whole evening because the SURPRISE DINNER she was suppose to have was ruined which I can not understand being that I reserved this seating about 2 weeks in advanced furthermore we did not get seated till 707 totally unacceptable do not plan on returning or recommending anything about this restaurant to a friend
We arrived before our two friends. We were greeted by a disinterested person at the front desk who was at first on the phone. Instead of asking if we wanted to be seated, he basically ignored us after we informed him our friends had not yet arrived. After sitting in the hallway for several minutes, a waiter finally asked if wanted to be seated.
Our friends arrived and after ordering, and waiting for the food a long time, one person received an incorrect meal. While she was asked if she’d like to change it, it seemed as if she was being discouraged to do so.
Additionally, this restaurant was the first one that wanted all my credit card info at the time of the reservation, indicating if any changes or cancellations were made prior to 48 hours, my card would be charged $10 per person.
Don’t think we’ll be back.
Great view of Sheepshead Bay. Food Wass ok, drinks and dessert were excellent.
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
