I seem to always come here when I'm hungry and tired, and it's a wonderful relaxing place to get delicious pasta. So far, every dish I've ordered has at least some seafood, and it has always been great. This time, I had a special with rib eye and seafood and vegetables and it was really delicious. They cooked the rib... More

Between the many locations of this establishment, my family has been able to meet, gather, and eat for the many special occasions in our lives. This is not your ordinary Italian restaurant.Yes, you can have all the traditional meals, but at Il Forno there is much more. Il Forno provides an array of regional Italian dishes to appeal to every... More

Never let down at Il Forno's. From traditional Italian fare to daily specials, the food is always excellent. The portions are hearty, and the restaraunt is BYOB!

This restaurant has some of, if not the best food in the area. The waitstaff is excellent. It suffers two flaws, one being location (a strip mall in Fitchburg near a bar with little parking) and the second flaw is no liquor license. Bring your own wine, pay no attention to the outside and enjoy your meal. Lobster Ravioli highly... More

Loud but a place to drink and meet other sex. Limited veg menu. Too noisy to hold a conversation. I won't go back.

I needed apace to eat between Greenfield and Boston on the Mohawk Trail. This was perfect for great Italian food and a homey atmosphere.

My family recently had the occasion to use the Il Forno Restaurant in Fitchburg for a bereavement gathering. The owner, Mike, graciously allowed our party of about 125 guests to use the entire restaurant on a Saturday afternoon. I cannot tell you enough how please my entire family was at the awesome food and outstanding service. The owner, the chefs,... More

The buffet is a joke, very little food. The price is reasonable but the food is not tasty at all. The service is good.

I've eaten at Il Forno many times. The place is wonderful. From the outside it may look a little tired but don't let that scare you. The food is good and tasty, the portions are enormous. I've found the service to be mostly quick and effective. On occasion when they are going crazy (weekend evenings, holidays), there is some expected... More
