Good plentiful food!

Stopped in for late lunch/early dinner . The garlic bread, & salad were good, the dressings tasty. Their creamy & regular Italian dressings are very good. We had veal & chicken combo dinners, which had veal & chick Parmesan , along with lasagna , stuffed shells. Very plentiful! Although the veal... read more

Perhaps nothing is less useful than relying on someone else's opinion on pizza, but here it comes anyway. We had a BYOB family lunch consisting of pizza, antipasto and bread and among our group of 7, nothing but "2 thumbs up" reviews from all. Two large pies and a big antipasto served us all really fine with a couple slices... More

Three adults and 2 children for dinner on Mother's Day early evening. I had not been here in quite awhile although we do take out pizza from here quite often, both the cheese pizza and the pesto pizza. Both are good but I like the pesto pizza better when we request less garlic. My son-in-law opted for the eggplant parmesan... More

We arrived with a reservation but they were still 15 minutes late. The place was WAY overcrowded and we barely could move around. There was a long line at the buffet. The food was ok for a buffet but they should have sold fewer seats instead of trying to make ad much money as they can. Maybe it's the first... More

14 of us had a reservation at 12:30 for Easter brunch. This place was hopping. Ended up we had to wait until about 12:40 for our table, but we were called and seated quickly. The waitress came by, took our drink orders and set us on the buffet. The buffet was great. Breakfast items in one area, a carving station... More

This used to be one of my favorites. However, my last few visits have been utterly disappointing. The prices have gone up quite a bit and the quality has plummeted. On one encounter, both our dishes (veal roast and chicken picatta) were outrageously salty. We sent them back. (Our server was very courteous & apologetic on this.) The last time... More

First... I'm not overwhelmed by the decor. Tables are kind of cramped but it wasn't very busy when I was there so, not a problem. Went with a standard since it was my first time dining here... Chicken parm with linguini. I also asked for a side Caesar salad instead of the garden salad. Slight up charge. No biggie. The... More

If you go bring your appetite. The food is very good as is the service,attentive but not intrusive. The potions are huge and the food is very good. The kitchen is visible and clean as is the restaurant. They don't sell alcahol but you can bring your beer or wine. The only reason not a five is not great ambiance... More

Celebrated a combo Anniversary/Birthday/Valentine's Day dinner at Il Forno on 2/18/15. The food and service were both excellent. Our waiter Andrew was personable and knowledgeable about the specials.... Mike M. is a great restaurateur and his efforts show. He's always very attentive to his guests and the food is par excellence....
