This is a great place. Be sure to try a little of all the areas on the menu. Salad, soup, pasta which is house made is all super. Only negative was the maraschino cherry used in the old fashioned when we really prefer the luxardo however it didn’t stop us from enjoying the strong drink made with quality bourbon.
Great restaurant! Food was superb. Nice ambiance. A neighborhood find. On my list every time I come to Newport. Tastes homemade.
We were celebrating a business victory. Was very happy that our host accommodated us indoors as we didn’t realize we would be eating in a tent outdoors.
This was our first time at the restaurant and believe me it will not be our last. the customer service was excellent the food was exquisite the service was impeccable. It was so nice seeing everybody in the restaurant enjoying themselves from couples to families. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
We love coming to eat here and recommend to all our friends, but felt service was lacking this time around. We came to celebrate our anniversary and our server was not attentive to our table. He didn’t really check to see how we were doing and when we ordered our food it came out very late. There was a large party at the restaurant at the time of our dinner, but we ordered our food before them and received our food after them. We also noticed that the server for the large table would check on their table multiple times throughout the night and provided quality customer service to the large party. However, I server would go missing for quite some time. It was just really disappointing as we came for a special occasion and it didn’t feel as such. Wouldnt recommend
Saher, my apologies for Marco's poor service on Monday night. I discussed with him ways , to make your anniversary feel special. One, should have informed the kitchen to move your order up before the 12 top was served, and he should not have disappeared like he did. When you feel the time is right here is my cell 714 749 3566. Call me and let me handle the reservations along with the bill. I appreciate that you recommend us to your friends and would like to serve you again. Best, Thad Foret
Great local spot for fantastic food, drinks, service, and ambiance!
Service was excellent
Wonderful food, great service, family owned business and love it every time ! I always overeat.. that is my only problem 🤭
Jen123, Thank you for the kind words and support!!! Best Thad Foret
Always a great experience and food is exceptional
Romantic, good service. Only complaint is that the toppings on the pizza are not spread out. One piece has all the olives, or all the artichoke, or all the ham. Better to have a bite of each on each slice.
YummyForTheTummy, First, thank you for your input. When I purchased this place 17 months ago I thought the same thing, so I made the change. This place has such an incredible following most people that order that pizza expect it that way. What followed when I made the change was that people would send it back. I hope you visit us again and just tell your server to have them mix it up with the ingredients. Best Thad Foret
We both ordered the veal osobuco ravioli and it was delicious! Our waiter was very helpful and friendly. We were seated outdoors, I like the fact we had more space than the patrons eating inside, but it still felt like we were eating dinner in a parking lot.
Amazing food, great drinks and excellent service!
Lovely atmosphere, great staff- waiter was awesome, he was attentive, efficient and darling!
The food and service here is always outstanding and consistent....
Great food, served hot and plentiful. Busy night but service was good and attentive.
We found this restaurant on OpenTable and we have to say that this experience was delightful in every way! With a smaller dining room, an outside patio and additional seating in what can be described as a Covid Tent which seem to be popular in California, we were seated at a nice table in the main dining room and quickly greeted by our server Monika. A true professional in every way she made us feel 'right at home' and missed no opportunity to ensure that our evening went well!
From their shrimp and calamari appetizer to my wife's Meatballs & Salad pairing to the most unique, light and flavorful VealAl Mattone (Veal Parmesan) I've ever had, the preparations and presentations were fantastic.
The owner stopped by to check on our experience and he was genuinely interested in how things were.
We definitely recommend Foretti's to those looking for a great Italian spot!
Great food and service
Love this place! Super casual….Great food..
Perfect for fun times and everyday dining….
Terrific fresh tasting pasta entrees. Lemoncello martini was wonderful.
When booking the reservation we chose "outside" but apparently "outside" is a tent in the parking lot. Be sure to specify before choosing outdoor dining.
Best Neopolitan Italian cuisine around this area. Our second time...neither time disappointed. To the contrary, each time has been so enjoyable. First time we were welcomed by Thad, who couldn't have been more friendly (He has an impressive background in the local restaurant scene). Servers Monica (wonderful personality) and Marcos (ditto) helped with suggestions that were right on. Food excelled. Will return often!
We brought a friend here to thank her for doing us a big favor. She had never been to Forettis’s and loved it !
Our server was, Monica and she was great ! Could not have been more helpful and gracious. Thanks to all who prepared our food, served our food and cleared our table. Great crew !
Excellent food, service, ambience...loved it. Will be back!
Great vibe, service was a little too good…. I got my wine and had 2 sips and my meal was already on the table… wanted to have a few minutes to decompress from my week. Pasta was great. Pizza was not as impressive. Soft soggy crust and on the smaller side. Very pricey for what we got.
The server was amazing. Always there to give us recommendations and fast! The food was excellent and the portions were just right.
The food is good and there is a nice out door patio. The service was very nice and the atmosphere is good for both a date or bringing you family as it’s louder so kids won’t disturb anyone. The authentic Italian food is something most Italian places can’t compare to in quality and flavor. We started with the artichoke which was a special, but it was kind of dry and not as flavorful as i would have liked and the calamari was kinda small and the bottom of the basket was filled with lettuce. The sea bass i had was good but it was described as a whole fish, which it wasn’t. The pizza at the table was very good.
Patio is a joke. Dirty. It’s like I’m eating in a large garbage can.
Waiter and staff were all so friendly and amazing. Good good, wine, all around amazing experience. Can’t wait to go back
Always awesome with Thad at Foretti's! Great local spot.
Asked about other open tables was told they were reserved. The tables were still open 2 hours after we arrived. Ordered linguine black octopus was chewy, pasta was clumped together and a piece of metal was in the fish also! Another person of our party had to wait for their dinner wrong order was put in. Not worth going back.
I have celiacs disease and let me tell you that their gluten free pasta was the most amazing thing I've ever had. What was even better was our waitress Monica!! Everything about this place was phenomenal. When you go, ask for literally everything on the menu and make sure Monica is your waitress!!
Food amazing service very slow and scattered too much waiting for waiter to come to table
Wonderful experience. Excellent service. The food is so tasty.
James is an outstanding server. The food was fantastic. I love this place.
I love this restaurant… great service excellent food… love it!
Not the same, zucchini soup was tasteless, seafood pizza not the quality as previous visits
Overall excellent, we’ve been there 4 times now and never disappoints. Great menu plenty of selections for everyone.
Pretty good as a spur-of-the-moment neighborhood place. The food was tasty and fresh, but no "wow" factor.
Loved sitting by the window, enjoying great service, the meals were excellent - we all shared. The limoncello pasta was a big hit, and the eggplant parmesan divine!
