Wife and I were in the mood for pizza, but most of our normal pizza places are closed on Sundays. Luckily, this place was open! We had the bruschetta as an appetizer, and it was amazing, and BIG. So big, that my wife decided to...get a salad instead of pizza. She had the ceasar salad with grilled chicken added. I stuck with the pizza since they serve persona 12-inch pies. I had pepperoni, sausage, and extra cheese and it was superb. This place is a tad pricey, but the quality is there. She had a glass of wine that cost $12(!). I had water...More

I was craving a delicious meal and received it. We ordered mozzarella caprese with fresh ripe tomatoes and delicious mozzarella with balsamic glaze. Fantastic! I then had penne a la vodka served Al dente. Excellent flavor. My husband ordered a personal Diablo pizza. Taste was...fantastic but a little soggy in the middle. We took dessert home because we were full. We’d definitely come again!More

We just ate here today after visiting the Stetson Mansion. We were a group of 5 ladies. The menu has a good variety and is well priced. I had a great small pizza with one of the thinnest crusts I have ever had. I was...delicious. My friends enjoyed the pannais and the salmon salad. We all enjoyed our meal. Our service was goodMore

We were a group of 4 adults and 1 child. Between us, we ordered a Crimini Mushroom Pizza, Salmon Piccata, which came with Angel Hair Pasta, a garden salad, a Cheese Pizza, and an order of Calamari, which came with two mild sauces. We also...had 4 cokes and shared a lava cake, with vanilla ice cream. High marks were given from the group, with special mention given to the Crimini Mushroom Pizza, the Lava Cake and the pasta. Our bill came to $107.00, before tip. We will return.More

My family and I went for a meal. While the food was okay the service was horrible. They were not busy at all. We ran into the owner while trying to complement her on the food, she was very rude and condescending. I will never...go back to a place that has such a rude owner. The staff was very nice but it is a poorly run restaurant. I feel bad for the people that work there.More

Forno Bello is a charming family owned restaurant in downtown Deland. The interior has booths and tables; lots of options on the menu with reasonable prices. The wine menu has many Italian wines by the glass or bottle at a good price point. Service by...our waiter Jim was excellent. We split the sirloin steak salad which was delicious and plenty to eat for both of us. The Italian bread with olive oil was a hit in itself. We enjoyed our visit and will be back.More

Halfway into ordering my meal we’re told that this restaurant with pizza in their title had no pizza tonight (cause their pizza guy wasn’t there?!). I checked with some locals and they all experienced this several times here before. Instead we were down to the...pasta dishes and entrees which are staggeringly expensive ($23+) and were really mediocre - flavorless and dried out. Meatballs were at least decent. Chicken scallopini is a definite skip. Shame on ownership for letting their pizza restaurant open if they can’t do their signature food. Also negative marks for none of the waiters wearing masks - shame again on ownership for endangering the lives of their young staff and customers.More

As we sat down, Alissa greeted us promptly and got us our drinks. Our booth was clean and we got our beverages. We ordered a glass of Pinot Noir and it was delicious. $9 seemed a little high for a glass, but it was so...good we ordered a second glass for our white wine drinker, even she liked it. Our food was amazing, I got a half pizza and salad lunch special and the pizza was phenomenal. The crust had that authentic flavor I miss from up north. The amount of sauce and cheese and basil were perfect. One of my companions got their wings and found them to be flawless. They had oil and herbs that created a juicy fragrant meal. My other companion got the eggplant rollatini Florentine and found the portion to be more than generous, and the leftovers will be finished in the next day or so, it was so tasty. Alissa was a great server, attentive, gave good recommendations, and was on top of our service as well as the rest of the dining room’s without feeling pressured. She was kind, pleasant, and more than competent. I would highly recommend this place and can’t wait till I’m back in town to enjoy their pizza again.More

The restaurant was not overly crowded but kind of busy. We were a party of four adults and we each ordered different entree's. My wife had to send her meal back because it was cold and had very little sauce on the pasta. The chicken...that came with the Chicken Parm was overcooked and dry. The wine was slightly over 1/4 full in the glass for $9.00. Overall the service was ok, the four entree's were disappointing. I would not recommend this restaurant.More

We went to this (so called) restaurant New Years Eve and the meal was satisfactory .....BUT...Last night we chose this place (notice I did not say restaurant) to fete our close friends.We placed our orders after being told that about a third of the menu...was not available and waited ..waited for some bread.Finally I walked to the kitchen door to await the waitress and asked for some! Note: the place was not busy! We ordered some drinks and the wine pour ($9.00!) was about 2 to 3 ounces and the draft beers were flat!The food arrived and was tepid.At that point I would have sent it back but we had friends there and I did not wish to make a scene. In conclusion the bill arrived $123.01 and I left a moderate tip just so we could get out without further drama. If you like semi warm food ,bad service and, pitiful wine pours, by all means dine here...you have been warned.More

So slow!!!!! We had to ask to be seated after waiting for about 6-8 minutes. And when they brought us our food, they had subbed out my mashed potatoes for soggy waffle fries drenched in the basil pesto sauce and left off the mixed vegetables....So I had a massive salmon filet to eat. The waitress said they were out of mashed potatoes, so I requested my mixed vegetables. I guess I expected they would comp me the potatoes at a minimum since they didn’t give them to me. Bad experience.More

my husband likes the antipasto plate so we gave this another try. This was to go. it came in a mashed up mess of a container. my dinner - they forgot the sausage so I called. apparently they couldn't take that off my bill cause...the owner "wasn't there" so I got stuck paying for something I didn't receive. honestly I don't know how this place stays open and I will never ever go back.More
