The atmosphere is nothing to write about, it is simple. And the staff well some can use an attitude adjustment. But the food on the other hand is pretty good depending on what you get. We tried this place for a family birthday dinner because of the great reviews...let me say this. However said this food is like the North... More

It's a byob Italian restaurant. The food is good with a decent number of options. The waitstaff is friendly and attentive. Not really for a classy night out, as it's in a strip mall with basic decor, but I do enjoy it every time I go.

Come hungry and prepare to take home leftovers. Our party of 10 had a very good meal once again. I've been going for close to 15 years, primarily for special occasions, and the food is always consistently good, service professional and efficient. Byob, no liquor license.

Paper napkins and plastic cups. I had the veal with artichoke and mushrooms. The veal was peantiful but the quality was dissapointing. I would hope for less food and better quality for the low $20ish cost of a veal dish with a $1 add for angel hair pasta. I was the only one in the palce except for a small... More

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
