Great service and super food. I had the lasagna which was served in a deconstructed way and was delicious. My companion had the daily special which in this case was a paprika crusted halibut over spicy spinach risotto that melted in your mouth. We had a lovely Sangiovese, and ended up happy and full!

This is a very pleasant Italian restaurant with some very nice dishes like the lamb and the fresh fish. The classic pastas are good but not great. The interior is very nice as well as the outside patio (on main street). Wine is very reasonable and good list. Worth a visit on a nice evening. Service is also very good.

We had a family get together in Pleasanton, a midpoint, at Forno Vecchio. 10 of us defended on the restaurant on a Tuesday lunch and had a nice lunch. At peak the place was half full.

Stopped for lunch at Forno Vecchio after I was told the restaurant by the owner's son. We were not disappointed, sat outside, the service was excellent, the meal was delicious and the bread fresh. We had the lunch special which was chicken piccata, very tasty!!

A great find in Pleasanton. Staff excellent and the food was delicious. Great value for money. Nice touch from the owner to come to each table to introduce herself and ask about you're experience at her restaurant. We will be revisiting in the near future.

This is by far our favorite Pleasanton restaurant! Valentine's Day prix fixe menu did not disappoint ~ omg, wish I could eat there every night. The rack of lamb was perfect as was the bed of brussels sprouts in a sauce. And the dessert ~ gelato on butter cake. Wonderful!

Everyone was very pleasant. The young man who seated us and our waitress went out of their way to make us comfortable. Unfortunately, we all ordered the chefs special, macadamia crusted halibut over a bed of risotto.We all agreed it was tasteless. My husband had a ceasar salad which he did not care for and my daughter had the lettuce... More

I had lunch with my friend (who happens to be Italian) at Forno Vecchio and enjoyed the food. We had a leisurely lunch and the servers never rushed us.
