Il Forno is fine

My wife and I frequently do take-out but have dined there and it is a BYOB so that can cut down costs. We love their Mom's Favorite pizza and their antipasto. Never had a bad meal.

We have visited Il Forno in various locations in and around Worcester for years and they never fail to deliver. Consistently good and a great value. Easily enough for two meals in one serving. I can't tell whether there is more clams or garlic in the linguine

My future husband and I always came here, the last few time we came the food was over cooked dry. The service is good but the food went downward.

I live in a nearby town and have been here several times over the past 2 years. I always find the food to be very good, although the portions are HUGE. Only downside is that it is a BYOB place, so if you don't know that ahead of time you may be disappointed. This is one of 3 restaurants in... More

We have been going here to this BYOB restaurant for several years and happened to go there during Worcester restaurant week. The regular menu offers great Veal, seafood and chicken dishes and during restaurant week your salad, entree and dessert were available on a limited menu for $23.15. The Seafood platter with mussels, calamari, shrimp and haddock was a meal... More

Pizza crust was not thin. It was puffy and doughy. No taste of the wood oven. Toppings were junk level ingredients. Not a chance of me going back for pizza.

Arrived on a Wednesday just after 6PM, restaurant was very busy, but started to clear out soon after. Ordered Chicken dishes and both were very good, our waitress was welcoming and she also provided excellent service, an asset to the restaurant. A great little restaurant, just be sure you BYOB and enjoy some great food.

Was here for a birthday dinner. There were 14 of us. Sara was our waitress. She was wonderful. We all hadn't seen each other in a while, and Sara gave us the time to talk and catch up, yet she was checking in frequently. The food was great. We had the strawberry salad with steak tips, lobster Alfredo, veal, chicken... More

This is a decent family restaurant. The main room is not very big, but there is a lot of natural light that comes through the windows. It's a nice, clean place. We had Kelly as a waitress and she was wonderful. We ordered the coconut shrimp for the appetizer. It came out hot and fast. The shrimp was crunchy, but... More
