Il Fornaretto Bakery
The smell of freshly baked brick oven bread permeates the air at this Bensonhurst institution. Il Fornatto bakes bread the old fashioned way with natural ingredients in a brick oven. Different types of bread, baguettes, white, semolina and wheat as well as cookies and biscotti are available at this busy bakery. The semolina round loaf has a billowy inside and a well baked exterior. The day after Hurricane Irene, the smell of freshly baked bread wafting through the air was familiar and welcome. Old school loaves of Italian love. Perfetto!
