We were surprised at how tasty the food was. It is pretty standard Italian, but well cooked. Portions quite large. To our surprise, no alcohol, but byob welcomed. Crowded and friendly, and no rushed service despite size and crowds. Will definitely go back, with wine!

Il Forno has great pizza and pasta. Our favorites are the Pizza Rustica and White Pie, but any pizza we've had there is delicious. Cheese manicotti is done very well here - get the marinara. We also love their specials which change daily. BYOB so plan ahead -they'll supply the wine glasses.

Great meal at a reasonable price. Patrons may BYOB / wine. Large portions that ensure a second feast with leftovers. Can get crowded quickly at peak weekend dinner hours, but staff never flustered, accommodating and pleasant .

Have been going here for years, lunch costs were less than $10, and dinner about $15. Over the past few years, 2 things happened, less garlic, (they tended to overdue the garlic) and costs have doubled. They do have a good selection of Gluten Free options, I usually go with seafood. Have not tried their GF Pizza, they do have... More

Excellent Italian meals. BYOB! Cozy atmosphere but a bit on the pricy side. Would r command to all. Also great for a quiet more than filling meal.

Excellent service- garlic bread was hot and very good - most of us all enjoyed our food . My chicken parmigiana was excellent . Penne votka sauce was not up to our standards . Given the choice of eating either at Olive Garden or this place - I'm glad we all decided on el fornicate.

Visited this restaurant while in town on business. It was a great local find. I didn't realize it was BYOB before I went so that was disappointing, but the food and service was great!

After a recent recital, we invited 5 family members for dinner, plus our family of 4 and chose Il Forno since we hadn't been there in years. It was disappointing to say the least. Our server was good but that was the only good thing about it! I got the chicken rollatini which was still pink inside from not being... More
