Our favorite Italian Restaurant. Really like being able to BYOB. Have never had a bad meal. Biggest problem is eating so much wonderful garlic bread that you get full before your meal comes. Only Italian food that my husband REALLY likes. We go there whenever we can.

I love this restaurant. We have been a customer for many years at many of their locations. this place has good food, large portions, and a great staff. There is always at least a 2nd meal out of this. But the linguine w/ white clam is the best by far I have ever had. More sweet tender clams than you... More

Terrible. They don't know what Italian is because they are not even Italian. They just wanna give u some type of food to full you up. Just go to the grocery store and buy food . Not worth dining

Do yourself a favor and go to a real authentic Italian restaurant. Low Quality food and management. Your feedback doesn't matter . They got too many clueless employees

One of my restaurant pet peeves is paying through the nose for pasta. Another pet peeve is ordering the "homemade" gnocchi and getting obviously frozen gnocchi. Both of these peeves happened at this restaurant. There are so many great Italian restaurants in this area that I can truly say that we will not return here.

Not in our usual loop but finding ourselves in the area decided to do take out pizza. They are after all known for their wood fired oven pizza as it says on their website. Website also says that they only use top ingredients and don't do ordinary. Well I am sorry but this is some of the worst pizza I... More

Have never had a bad meal at this restaurant. And, servings are very generous --- enough to bring home for another meal. Unfortunately, any Il Forno I have eaten at in Massachusetts have all been very corwded. Too many tables are crammed into a small space making in difficult manuvering to/from your table.

The service was smiles and good service. But the food was mediocre. The tomato gravy was flat. But the eggplant and chicken baked in "chicken Siciliano" were quite good. The Seafood platter my husband chose also gets a mixed review. The fish was so dry he did not finish it, but the scallops were good. He did not particularly like... More

We attended a friends 70th Birthday Party here on a Sunday night. We were in a Nice Private room, Great Staff that didn't get rattled as we were all visiting each other and were all in their way! They worked their way around the adults and children with ease! The Food was Wonderful, huge portions for dinner, we had a... More
