Great menu, selection & service. And now they deliver to my neighborhood! This is my new pizza delivery place. Can't wait to go in for dinner.

We've been missing out on great pizza in Frederick for many years now until finally experiencing Il Forno's. Their pizza is heads and shoulders above any of the chain pizza restaurants we've had like Pizza Hut, Papa John's, Domino's, etc. We tasted the huge difference immediately. This is oven cooked pizza done right. We were just completely ignorant and unaware... More

The problem with pizza is everyone has their own opinion on what good pizza is and so that makes it tough to have an "honest" review of it. Il Forno is OK at best. My main concerns were with the crust and toppings. The crust was soggy - it should be crisp or at least be able to hold up... More

I've been there many times and they have excellent pizza! I highly recommend BBQ chicken pizza. Also their Deep Fried Mushrooms are awesome!

Wood fired pizzas are their specialty and boy are they good at it. This is my go-to place for pizza in Frederick. They have something for everyone. My favorite is the gourmet works pizza. It is incredible! The servers and staff are all wonderful and very friendly! Great locally owned pizza restaurant!

We are from out of town here for an evening and this place was recommended to us by hotel staff. We were not disappointed at all. Fast service and delicious pizza with sports on three tv's in dining area. Highly recommended if you like pizza

I constantly want to give this place one last chance because they have amazing pizza and other food. But sadly, after tonight's visit I can say that wont happen again. The bartenders are atrocious. Worst I have ever seen. It takes 15-20 minutes just to be acknowledged and another 10 to get a drink. Good luck having them come back... More

We found this restaurant tucked back in a shopping center after finding two other nearby restaurants with long waits. We were not disappointed with our choice. This is NOT your run of the mill pizza parlor. This is a very good casual restaurant. Pizza is their specialty and they have some interesting types with fresh ingredients. They also have a... More

I am from Boston spending some time in the area. I tried this restaurant based on the reviews here. I wish I had known that it is thick crusted pizza. My children and I are fans of thin crusted pizza. We ordered a large cheese pizza with pepperoni. When the pizza came out the entire topping almost slid off the... More

I was born and raised in Frederick and am still a resident. Ill Forno is the only game in town for pizza. The wood burning pizza oven and chunky tomato sauce makes for some of the best pizza ever. The bar offers a number of HD t.v.'s to watch (insert your team here) games and enjoy a frosty beer or... More
