My wife and I had lunch at this restaurant. The food was freshly prepared and served hot. Taste was just average for us. Service was pretty average too. There isn't much ambience either. Overall it was OK but don't expect anything special.

I've been to Il Forno many times and some things are really good and some not so much. What I like: the pizza, especially the White Pie with asparagus, Chicken Aglie Olie, beef stew, Focaccia bread with pesto sauce, Chicken Cranberry Walnut salad and their Strawberry Salad with the house Balsamic Vinaigrette, as long as the lettuce is fresh which...

Brick-oven pizza attracted us to have lunch here. They have a buffet lunch, but we chose instead to have their "super duper" pizza. Actually I don't like tomato sauce and cannot tolerate peppers, so they made it with their pesto sauce and without peppers. They were happy to make the modifications. The pizza was piled high with artichoke hearts, mushrooms,... More

Let me start by saying we had visited this restaurant about two years ago and it was awful. Last night we were out with friends and decided to give it another shot. Wow what a mistake! The girls decided to order pizza it was flavorless. I should've known better than to try the swordfish. When it arrived at the table... More

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.
