Their pizza is the best!

Our favorite is their tomato, basil & garlic. We like it extra crispy and double cut slices. You can never go wrong! Plus at around $16 for an extra large pizza, you can't beat the value.

I am married into an Italian family and am used to awesome home made sauce, this was bitter and almost tasted like it needed to cook a few... More

Our group chose Il Forno for our monthly "flash dinner" night out. Good reviews here helped in this choice. People were seated as they arrived, and drink orders taken. When all arrived, dinner orders were taken and fresh bread for our large table. Salads (house or Caesar) a good start to out meal. Entrees arrived in a timely manner, Chicken... More

I recently read a review in the Ledger on this restaurant and decided it was time for another visit. So glad we did. Our server was very pleasant and extremely helpful. We described an Italian dish we hadn't seen on a menu lately and she knew the dish we were thinking of, went to the cook and asked if he... More

The food is always good at Il Forno. I eat there about once a month and it's always good. Recommend to others for good Italian food.

Great, enthusiastic service, fresh, nicely-prepared Italian food at very reasonable prices. Although the location was attached to a strip mall, it was nicely decorated, and the staff made me feel welcome.

One of my favorites! I typically eat the same thing. ..Chicken gargonzola salad. It's great! Everything is really good but I'm usually on a diet. There is always a lot of chicken and the dressing is awesome. Very rich.

The food is wonderful and very filling. My granddaughters love to come and play with the pizza dough. They have my favorite wine and the service is great.

Average food with a so so atmosphere. Not the best but mostly local and certainly not the worst around. Reasonably priced.
