When you walk into an Italian restaurant and a large Italian family, several generations, you know it must be good. And it was. Clam linguine was fantastic (baby clams in shell). Portions were large of the pasta and house salad (ordered separately). Great service.

We booked Il Fornetto's party room for mom's birthday celebration (luncheon). It's a private room at the restaurant, big enough to handle upwards of 80-100 guests, though we had approximately 65 attending. A wall of windows made the view of Sheephead Bay really nice. There's...More

Rather than chowing down on hot dogs and burgers on the grill, we decided to head out to dine. So happy we did. Il Fornetto has a beautiful tranquil water view that sets the tone for a relaxing experience. The food choices made it difficult...More
