After years of driving past La Forno, I finally stopped in. This is a neighborhood type of joint with friendly service and the usual pizza shop menu items. We ordered a mushroom pizza and one with meatballs, peppers, and onions. Both were very good and the waitress was a friendly lady. Prices fair. Enjoy it.

We are frequent customers of la fornos but every time we make a trip and eat there we are more and more disappointed. The service is some of the worst we have experienced and also very unfriendly. The food is good but hard to enjoy the food when the noise is so loud you can't hear the conversation at your... More

It was convenient to where we were staying. We ordered platters rather than cheese steaks or Pizzas to take out. Later we were told that this was our mistake. We had to discard both our meals. We will never chance this place agiain

sopped by for lunch. had a veal parm, which can be sometimes hard to find. the veal, although generous in portion, was slightly overcooked and therefore a bit tough. didnt compare to some south philly haunts. might try something else but it wont be soon.

We have been La Forno customers for almost 10 years. Last night was a great disappointment. Their menu must be fraying at the seams. The chicken kebab with pita was a disgrace. The chicken was bone dry and had a stale, unknown taste. The vegetables were tasteless. The turkey club had a poor taste, presumably from the bacon. We took... More
