Took daughter there for lunch. Attending nearby college. Tried 3 slices of specialty pizza. Crust was nice and crispy. 2 of 3 slices I really didn't care for. Half of the food from the rest of our party left the food behind on their plates. Expected better. Not going back.

We came here on a whim. Everything was excellent. The bruschetta was great. Chicken Parm and Eggplant Rolantine were great.

I have done delivery from Forte restaurant to my hotel room a couple of times now. Both the pizza and the chicken parmigiana meal arrived hot. Food was very generous and delicious.

N.J. Monthly readers have named Forte best year after year. The reason is simple.THE GREAT FOOD .Every item on the menu -and I have had most of them- is awesome and is available for take out. The owner Joe and sons Michael and Anthony as well as the entire staff make you feel that your family.
