Il Forno has been a regular place for family dinners for years. It was a constant favourite for our kids and visitors form outside Edmonton. Our last dinner was a special family event , in a family style. Three generations of family together after many years not seeing each other. Well the service was fine, the meal disappointing.

We recently ate here on a Saturday night. The ambiance of the restaurant is very nice - nicely spaced tables, lots of Italian decor items around, very open and feels comfortable and welcoming. We ordered bruchetta, caesar salad and a pizza. The bruchetta was OK - quite bland and presented on half of a soft white bun - nothing special... More

Weve been regulars at Il Forno for years. The former owner told me once that his goal was to have a restaurant where the kids come come and eat pizza and mom and dad could have a nice dinner that didn't cost the earth. It is a popular spot every night and the quality and service never varies. A true... More

Was here recently for lunch and was disappointed. Firstly they do not fire up the pizza oven at lunchtime, so the wood fired pizza is not an option. Of the pasta dishes we had, all the pasta was overcooked and one of the dishes was far too oily. The room is comfortable and the service is fine, but the food... More

This place seemed ok when we walked in. Guy playing the harp, dining room had lots of commotion. Then we ordered our drinks and received them 20 minutes later after reminding our waitress. Should have taken my gut feeling and walked out. The overall service was lousy and the food was so bland. I really want to give this place... More

Went here (finally!) on a recommendation from friends. My husband and I really enjoyed the lunch fare! There were lots of choices and everything we had was delicious - even the caesar salad, which is sometimes not the best at restaurants. The service was great. I would definitely be back soon - hopefully for dinner when we can linger a... More

Il Forno has never been quite the same since it left Little Italy 20 years ago but it has raised the bar for west end eateries since it moved west. The food is good not excellent but their minnestrone and pizzas are very good indeed. Service is always friendly. Servings are generous. Quality is consistent. It is family friendly and... More

We went to Il Forno last night and it was fairly busy but we actually got seated quite quickly but had to wait for about 10 minutes to get a menu. We had to ask about the specials and for a wine list to determine what we wanted to drink. When we were able to order, my husband asked for... More
