“Touch of Spain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

First there is ample parking on premise, which is a big deal in this "down neck" of Newark NJ. It is a large place with a long bar. In a previous visit I ate at the bar and it was a delightful experience. This visit we were six people on a Friday night. The menu is long and the waiter will tell you about the many specials. I had the piaya which was simply delicious. The portion could have been split with another person. Others ordered the veal shank and everyone was pleased with their selection. They served a salad, bread and olives upon your sitting. The wait staff are helpful and you are not rushed. We order Sandria and it was perfect. For the most part it is a local crowd. This area is also know as the iron bound section of Newark because it is surrounded by railroads. It is a very safe area of Newark populated primarily by Portuguese and Spaniards.

“Amazing!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

This place is outstanding in every way possible. The staff is super nice. Everything I have ever ordered here was perfect. I don't like sangria but was urged to try it by everyone at our table and it was really good. Their wine list is very extensive. Love the salad they bring out for the table also. I adore this restaurant and can't wait to go back.

“Forno's of Spain, Ironbound section of newark”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

This place is always packed, reservations recommended, go kinda hungry. I say this because it's pricey, but anything on the menu will be sure to please, the atmosphere is seemingly authentic Spain, and you could easily eat out of budget with the fine fare offered here. Love this place, Atmosphere, Service, FOOD and great drinks,( I found out the hard way with a bottle of vintage wine)
