“Very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

Have tried several of the pasta dishes and they have all been very good. Tried the chili dogs and didn't like the chili. I think it had too much cumin in it. The place is small so get there early on the weekend as you might have a wait later in the evening.

“Better than average!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

Not your normal blah pizza and hotdog place. They handmake their pizza dough and they have great Greek salads and pasta entrees. I had chicken parmesan on fetticine and it was a large portion, tasted great! The tomato sauce was excellent. Good sandwiches here too. Nice patio.

“Absolutely a "no" on my list of places to eat”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2009

First, owner and staff had no confidence in their "summer menu" saying they were "working out the kinks" after we decided to try fried artichoke hearts with blue cheese. Then they apologized for them being completely frozen in the middle, no wonder they had no confidence. Even so, the owner still proceeded to argue with my husband when he asked him to take it off the bill as we couldn't even eat one! He ultimately refused to uphold his "guarantee" as mentioned on the website http://www.ilfornonewyork.com/ and we had to pay for frozen artichoke hearts that ended up in the garbage. So basically the food is unedible, cooked by teenagers and the owner, who is not from New York by the way and has no idea how to cook New York Pizza and Pasta, is a liar and a fraud. I am not exaggerating about this situation. We were so excited to try a new place that is very close to our house - could have been a local favorite - terribly disappointed. Save your money - go to mellow mushroom which is always consisitant!
