We've been coming here ,well, forever. It's our favorite pizza place hands down and what we compare all the other competition to. Never disappointed. Happy, team oriented wait staff . It's crowded and popular for a good reason. Outdoor dining in the warm months opens up seating options ( if only they could just ban smoking in and near all... More

Il Forno is the only pizza parlour that my husband loves to go to. He lived in Naples for many years and he says that this restaurant comes the closest to Italy's pizza.

Hand-tossed pizza crust, fresh toppings, and generous application keep this sports bar and restaurant the best pizza in Frederick, Maryland. The environment is simple and a little worn, but we never feel uncomfortable. Staff are excellent and diligent to keep the customers well attended to. No wonder this pizzeria/sports bar continues to be awarded "Best Pizza" in Frederick by the... More

Excellent wood fired pizza! Prices are more reasonable than most other wood fired places I have visited. Calzone is also excellent.

I've been going there for the pizza, pasta and sandwiches since it opened in the 1990's. I was thrilled when they became a full sports bar and restaurant a few years ago -as they have hours that fit my schedule. They generally keep the wood fired ovens burning till at least 12:30 AM. So I can stop by for a... More

Great pizza, for sure. I have been here many, many times, and the pizza is always a draw for me. Most of the servers have been there for years and know their customers (especially in the bar). My ONLY real complaint is that I have been in groups that have come in and found the dining area closed. Not sure... More

When visiting Frederick, I always try and stop here for at least one meal. On this trip, we went for a late lunch, and the pizza was delicious, as usual. Service not really up to par, but that wouldn't prevent me from returning. We always order the pizza minus the garlic.
