Definitely best pizza in Frederick and beyond!

I love Il Forno- great pizza, delicious toppings and great crust. It is best eaten right there but we do takeout as well. I love sitting outside when weather permits- service is great, funny and friendly.

Il Forno is a very good pizzeria and I always look forward to eating there when I'm in town. Service is very friendly and usually fast; if you go on a busy Friday night you will sometimes wait because so many people are calling in take out orders. They make a great pizza and good salads. I recently ate there... More

First time here. Heard it was the best pizza in town so decided to find it. In a strip mall near Clock tower & Giant on W Patrick (golden mile). Old style hometown place, lots of regulars- here's why ...happy hour deals, quick & friendly service (Kirsten), great food at low prices! $2 beer, $4 wine, $5 wings (old bay!)... More

Definitely not fancy, a little slow. They have good pizza and calzones. Could be updated, but so could most of the restaurants in Frederick.

We had the 4 cheese pizza and the "Works".Both were excellent choices with fresh ingredients and what appeared to be freshly made sausage not the typical institutional stuff.Others in our group tried the calzones and stomboli.Both got high reviews.

Gourmet pizza toppings. Garlic seems to be ubiquitous. Wood fired pizza. I really enjoy the spinach and ricotta one.

Loev the pizza and the service is great. Heard they are expanding into the location next door and will be adding a bar. Can't wait to check it out.

This is a well-kept secret on the golden mile. Tucked away near the Giant, this pizza place is above average in everything but decor. The pizza is good and is prepared by hand quickly. All items are cooked a wood-burning oven just behind the counter. The choices are good, not just pizza, and everything we've ever gotten has been quite... More
