DAY 2: OCTOBER 2nd, 2007 - FORNINO

LOCATION: Fornino (Bedford Ave and N. 7th St in Williamsburg, BROOKLYN)

GUEST(S): Tony Carnevale

ORDER: 2 slices of Soliccia de Pollo, 1 slice of Meneze

PIZZA REPORT: Fornino offers the best of new and old world gourmet pizza. I prefer the old world flavor but admire the thought and time that went into the preparation of my Soliccia de Pollo. Italian born Nicola Bertolotti is responsible for the entire menu. including the more traditional sausage and fresh mozzarella cheese on the Meneze as well as the chicken sausage, parmesan cheese, broccoli rabe on the Soliccia de Pollo. Both tough to pronounce pizzas combine San Marzano tomato sauce imported from Italy with home grown herbs and Fornino's own mozzarella. The net result: a top level pizza at a mid level price.

ATMOSPHERE: With a nice and quiet patio in the back and a friendly wait staff Fornino offers a romantic setting in a hip(ster) area of Brooklyn. Be prepared to spend about $17 a person on the gourmet pizza alone.

VERDICT: 4 out of 5

1. Tony Carnivale says I'm hilarious in the video clip. Granted we were just testing the audio, but it was still nice to hear.
2. In the video clip, I also had the privilege to interview the chef, Nicola Bertolotti about his pizza. He has an awesome Italian accent.

Dammit. I forgot to type “yes” and my comment didn’t get posted. So, here I go again: I love it! Even though I work at a pizza place and see/smell/talk about (and therefore get quite sick of) pizza almost every day, watching your video blog makes me CRAVE whatever pizza you are eating. Keep up the blogging/pizza-eating!
