“Good Italian Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

I had fried calimari with linguine, and it was so good. The salad was also good. We also got garlic bread complimentary, a step up from the usual rolls and butter. An excellent place to eat.

“Hidden gem!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

We stumbled upon this hidden gem while visiting friends in the Boston area. Don't let the strip mall facade turn you away. The place was bustling with locals, people willing to wait 45 minutes, so we had a feeling it was going to be good! The food was fresh and delicious and the staff was great, very friendly! It's also very reasonably priced. The decor is nothing special, but that's not the important part! We'll definitely be back, next time we're in the area!

“Used to be a McD's.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

But they've done a great job turning it into a real restaurant. Their food is very good.

“BYOF”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2011

I have given up on Il Forno's. After 4 attempts, I just don't enjoy the meals. The appeal of bringing your own wine or beer is interesting, but the food is pathetic. Don't bother.
