Review: Fornino – A "Hidden" Gem In Williamsburg?

Last month, I hit up Fornino’s in Williamsburg with Seth. For a place that sits on a highly trafficked block on Bedford Avenue, the back garden is a nice refuge from the hustle and bustle of hipster heaven.

This place rarely makes any “top 20” lists and I hadn’t even heard of it until relatively recently. It’s weird to call it a hidden gem given it’s location, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the pizza we had.

We got two pies — the Margherita DOC (tomatoes, buffalo , mozzarella, basil, olive oil, and parmesan cheese) and the 4 Formaggi (mozzarella, gorgonzola, fontina, ricotta).

It’s no shock that the most recent reviews on menupages are titled: Excellent, Legit, Good but could be great, Fantastic!!, and yumm-O. All are adequate descriptions of the pizza here.

They have a nice wood-fired pizza oven, friendly service, and while it’s a little less hip than, say, Motorino… I’m surprised the two places aren’t compared with one another more often.

Sometimes when I look at the low quality photos I take of pizza with my iPhone, I realize the few megapixles Apple gives me are not enough to recapture the beautiful pies that I eat. In this case, however, I think the photos can speak for themself.

About I Dream Of Pizza

Some guys dream about winning the Powerball jackpot, making love to Kate Upton, or scoring the winning touchdown in the Super Bowl. But personally, I spend most of my time dreaming about digging my face into a mouth watering slice of pizza. Fireworks are ignited. Music comes out of nowhere. And just like that, I’ve fallen in love once again. Since 2008, I've chronicled my pizza eating adventures in New York City and around the world on I Dream Of Pizza -- the web's most popular blog dedicated entirely to pizza.
