On Saturday, February 9th, 2008 my daughter was married at il Fornetto. When we walked in the room was inviting and romantic. The view of the water was spectacular and set the mood perfectly. The staff was eager to help with all aspects of this event and remained professional from beginning to end. There was nothing that we needed and didn't receive. Since that day everyone has been raving about how great the food was which I can't blame them I went back last week just for dinner. It was truly a dream come true for my daughter and our family. I would highly recommend il Fornetto.

Last Friday I treated my family to dinner at il Fornetto. The minute I walked in I was greeted with a warm welcome and seated immediately. The view of the boats and birds passing was spectacular. The service was great and the food was even better and the desserts are to die for. I would highly recommend this restaurant and catering hall. As for myself I decided to book my sisters bridal shower in there banquet room (Veranda). As we were leaving and the sun was going down on the water the Veranda room was elegant and calming. This is the best restaurant I have been to in Sheepshead Bay.

Must understand that I'm Asian reviewing an Italian restaurant. Went with group of 9 for my son's birthday on a Saturday for lunch. Ordered raw oysters, raw clams, baked clams, fried calamari for appertizers, then ordered from their specials for the day ( which you won't see in their website) - grilled mahi mahi, chilean bass, rack of lamb and grilled steak. Afterwards, dessert - cakes, ice cream, fruits. No wine, just soft drinks. My bill was $480 (incl tax), which I think was worth it, considering the view, prompt service and overall fine quality of the food.. Everything tasted very fresh, light and delicious. Recommend the rack of lamb and chilean bass. The grilled mahi mahi and the steaks were so-so but the appetizers and dessert were great. They do have cheaper items on the menu as well as prix fixe lunch and dinner.
