Fornello Express

Fornello in Italian means "little oven," referring to the brick oven that sears so many of Fornello Express dishes, including carefully crafted pizzas that are topped with imported ingredients and are available in both thin- and thick-crust versions, much like all newly discovered planets. Signature dishes include one of Ottavio's favorites, the timballo di maccheroni, in which four cheeses blend with marinara sauce before baking in a brick oven.
