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.

We have dined at Forno Vecchio many times and always come away happy! The service provided by waiters Agustin and Travis has always been top notch and we always enjoy catching up with them each time we visit. The food is consistently high quality and uses fresh ingredients obtained locally. The wine list is definitely sufficient and we've always received... More

Excellent food and the bread and dipping sauce was delicious, warm and soft. My sister is from Orange County and said it was the best lasagne she'd ever had!

Met up with some friends on a Friday afternoon for some dinner and none of us had ever been here, just looked for an Italian place online and this was the best reviewed. I have to agree with the positive reviews we read online. This place is very good and this is coming from someone that isn't too big on... More
