I paid 20 percent less at Il Forno than I would for a family of four and the quality of food and service was top notch. I highly recommend! I believe you could go with any pizza and not be disappointed.

We stopped at Il Forno to have a quick lunch break while on the road. It was a great experience. The service was fast and friendly. We had the pizza alla puttanesca with goat cheese and it was very good. All the ingredients were fresh and tasty.

The salads are excellent. This is one of the few places in Frederick where the salads are consistently good. The pasta dishes are huge and okay; nothing out of the ordinary. While I have never ordered pizza here, my friends all swear it is the best in the county. The atmosphere is a typical pizza joint, good for family or... More

The dough is always fresh as are the ingredients... may seem pricey, til you see how fresh and amazing the ingredients are... and then you'll wonder how they do it... can't beat the fried pickles or eggplant...

It's crowded and popular for a good reason. Outdoor dining in the warm months opens up seating options ( if only they could just ban smoking in and near all... More

Il Forno is the only pizza parlour that my husband loves to go to. He lived in Naples for many years and he says that this restaurant comes the closest to Italy's pizza.
