We enjoyed a bountiful meal and brought a large portion home.
Salad and garlic bread were included with our dinner.
Wonderful service too!

Tried this place when Crossroads next door had a 30 minute wait. The food is quite good, but pretty standard fare.

One at our table ordered pizza, couldn't be brick oven like advertised, pretty ordinary. As for our entrees, disgustingly oversized portions! Really, three people could've shared one and been full. We're big eaters but seriously? It was unappetizing to have an enormous platter of food placed in front of you!

If you go, bring your own wine (no liquor license) and share an entree!

My wife and I have been there number of times. It is low key local Italian place. The best things about it: you could bring your own wine or beer with you, which is great as it cuts the bill and still have your favorite drink; they only use really fresh local veggies and seafood. Two drawbacks: they don't take reservations, only call ahead and sometimes it gets very busy and you have to wait; most of the times you get great meal, but we had couple mediocre meals in the past, so you never know for 100%.

This place has some of the best italian food around. Bring your own beer or wine, relax, and enjoy. I would recommend this place wholeheartedly.

I have been to Il Forno in Acton several times over the years, most recently in March 2013. The food has been consistently outstanding (I always order off the 'Specials' list,as they are all fantastic - usually with very creamy and flavorful sauces). At some point, I would love to order off the Regular Menu :-) The restaurant is also BYOB, another appeal, but the main pull is the food. Remember to bring your appetite, as the servings are not modest. Service has always been friendly and prompt.
