My wife and I tried Fornino's last night. Turned out to be not the best of choices. Our fresh ricotta with honey appetizer was fine (except for the bread that came with it — far too crusty for us, but the house bread was fine).
Unfortunately, we went on to each order an individual pizza, and that is the disappointing part. Maureen had the Quattro Formaggio (four cheese) pizza, and I had the Vinny Scotto pizza. Both pizzas arrived about ten minutes after we ordered them.
Both pizzas were lukewarm, not hot, a surprise for us both. After a few bites, it became apparent to me that my pizza was a reheated one that had been prepared some time earlier, and possibly even refrigerated in the meantime. When I told Maureen what I thought, she said she had come to the same conclusion about hers.
Seems to me that when a pizza place starts serving reheated pizzas, the end is near. And that is the impression we were left with when we paid our bill and went home.
