After a long day of sightseeing in Manhattan, we were famished. We found this on Trip Advisor and knew we had to visit. Shortly after being seated, Joe came to our table and introduced himself. He asked if we had any questions about the menu,...More

Ate here with my husband while on a short break in NYC recently. Having travelled extensively in Italy, there is nothing authentic about the food here. It tasted preprepared and stodgy. We had a selection of hot antipasti appetisers and stuffed artichoke, both tasted strongly...More

In NYC you have the opportunity to go to hundreds of great restaurants. At Forlini’s you get the chance to not only have a great home cooked Italian meal but experience real Italian charm. It’s like being in the home of the owner not his...More

We didn’t eat at the restaurant but went into the pub. GREAT atmosphere. The bartender Walter introduces himself so you feel right at home. Many locals came in and he knew their name and their order.

To our seniors from HCS This is by far my favorite Italian restaurant. I usually stop at this restaurant each time I am in Manhattan. This particular trip we have come here two times. It is excellent and it is authentic.

Came across this by complete accident and a fantastic find. Superb ‘proper’ Italian food. Great friendly service and some of the best food we’ve come across. Calamari was to die for!

We so enjoyed our meal here. This is authentic , non pretentious delicious NY Italian food. It’s the real deal, the sort of food I want to eat when I’m away from home and can’t cook for myself. The outside is ordinary, the inside is...More

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where

Found this by Googling: At Forlini’s, “Little Joe”—manager Joe Derek—gave me the story. They’d started offering gluten-free versions of their foods about one and a half years ago, and the move has proven very popular... More
