Il Forno is an excellent BYOB restaurant! Check out the daily specials they are always over the top delicious! If you are a couple, ask to sit by the brick oven! Great place for large groups as well! Best garlic bread around!

I held a surprise birthday party at Il Forno for a group of 20. Although we were put in a somewhat private area. they had another table with strangers there who were not happy and asked to be moved. If they had planned on us using that last table we would have been more comfortable as they had us pretty... More

Authentic tasty Italian dishes made to order! I've been several times and have yet to be disappointed. Wait staff is attentive and food is great! They had eggplant prosciutto roll ups & my daughter being a vegetarian asked if they could leave to meat out, of course they can because orders are made fresh!

This is by far the best Italian restaurant in the Fitchburg area. The portions are huge and its BYOB! They will make any modifications you want to the menu, I always order Fra Diavolo sauce on everything because I like it spicy.

Had orientation and they have a small cafe located inside the new Burbank hospital, it was fantastic! I got a chicken ceaser wrap and it was huge, fresh and delicious! Score for Burbank patients!

We were eager for an authentic Italian meal while staying in Fitchburg & Il Forno was recommended. We were advised to share as portions are large. Our server was courteous, food freshly made & well prepared & presented. Great value as we shared our dinners & salad was included.

A friend of us recommmended to visit Il Forno. Unfortunately we were quite disappointed. The food was ok but the atmosphere in the restaurant was a let down.

Il Forno's has been a popular spot in Fitchburg for many many years and for good reason. The family owned restaurant consistently serves gigantic portions of Italian goodness. Mainly a red sauce place, they always have specials that are generous in portion and creative. Rarely a special will fall flat, a combination of ingredients that I didn't care for, but... More

I have been told that this was a good restaurant and the staff is very friendly and helpful but the food was not what I would call quality italian food. My eggplant rolatini was so thick with bread crumbs I couldn't even see the eggplant. Two others ordered pizza and it was ok but not great, I was told frozen... More
